So, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but the site looks a little different. I started putting together a theme and next thing I knew it was six hours later. I haven’t even eaten dinner, and I have to go to bed now. So anyway, a few of the reasons for the new look are, …
I kind of threw this together cos I got a text from Jared saying, ” Just found Ike’s parrallel universe album on spotify… You should learn deathbed and dandelion…”
You can tell this was like a first take cos there’s about two wrong chords and I flubbed a lyric. And yet I went back, added a quick second vocal track, and a . . . um . . . rendition of the guitar solo . . . . But anyway, here it is.
“Deathbed (Na, Na, Na)” originally by IKE
Try to enjoy.
Yesterday I had the bright idea of making hot dogs, but using my deep fryer to do so. A few things to note: This certainly cannot be healthy for me It’s so quick to cook! After heating up the oil, I dropped all eight of these Ballpark Bun-sized Beef Franks into the basket, I dropped …
So I didn’t want to spend a lot of money on a MIDI controller. And I wanted something I could use instead of the old, tried-and-true method of click, drag, drop, right-click, edit I used to do for my drum programming. And I figured, it’s got two octaves, and a set of actual pads at …

I’m all proud of myself for making this. It’s actually for work, where I build specialised digital presentations for iPads, so this really only works on browsers like Safari and Chrome. I also threw together some Firefox support, but this only works in the latest and coolest of browsers, so if you have, like, Firefox 4 or almost any version of Internet Explorer, this won’t work.
I had some help. This article at Codrops gave me the initial idea. But, like other “3D CSS Bar Graph” articles I found, all of them create the illusion of 3D by creating triangular borders around the bars.
That is not my desired goal as it’s not built in a 3D space, so I cannot rotate around the view. So, I made my own. (more…)
I used to use Dreamweaver. Made it up to CS5.5 thanks to various jobs and stuff. At my current job they have Dreamweaver CS5.5, but lately I’ve been using my Mac for other projects, like at home and stuff. I use Coda, because it has built-in FTP and it’s easy to use. I wish I could …
I have just received the best scam email ever.
From time to time I check my junk box, because GMail likes to forward Zynga requests in there, as well as deals at Ben’s Outlet and offers to grow my penis to godly proportions. Today I checked the junk box, and stared at an all-caps subject from a name typed in all caps. I couldn’t pass up a chance at hilarity like this for, oh gosh, safety concerns!

So, at least for the summer, I have a new favourite show. The second season to Wilfred just started about two weeks ago, and I’m already hooked. Starring Elijah Wood, Jason Gann, and Fiona Gubelmann, Wilfred is the story of a man and his dog—Except in this case the dog belongs to the neighbor.
And is a guy dressed in a dog suit.
For the past day or so I’ve been staring at Foundation. It’s a Framework that claims to be responsive and has a lot of great little UI and layout things prepared for you. Also has two cool plugins built-in, Orbit and Reveal (an image slider and modal window, respectively).
So far, pretty cool. I want a reason to use this thing, it looks pretty awesome. I’ve been meaning to change up one of my websites for a while now. Maybe I’ll base it off Foundation.
In other news, I wish Kat Dennings would continue writing in her blog. Either that or I missed a memo where she moved?
