Design: Clients from H-E-DOUBLE HOCKEY STICKS!!

Everyone who has ever worked with a client knows and hates that age-old adage, “The client is always right”. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve wanted to cram those very words down my own clients throats, but inevitably I suck it up, finish the job, and dream of alcoholic summers on some tropical beach.

Well Matthew Inman of TheOatmeal.com, has summed it up in one of his very funny comics, “How a Web Design Goes to Hell.”

If you like this one, also check out “Why I Believe Printers were sent from Hell…”.

Food: Foodspotting-Post your fav foods around town

Foodspotting.com let’s you post pictures of your favorite foods along with a title, picture, restaurant name, and restaurant location. The best part about it, is you can visually find specific dishes in a specific city. This would have been great while my wife and I were looking for clam chowder in Boston.

Foodspotting has an iPhone app also which makes the whole process even smoother. Just launch the app, snap a picture, title it, and send. Your fav food is now available for other foodies to find.

So go food hunting, because I’m getting hungry.

Movies: If you liked Coraline, check out Alma…

One of my cohorts found this and sent it my way. It’s an award-winning animated short-film in the same vein as Coraline. Check out the Alma website for more info on the film including background on the film’s director—Rodrigo Blass.
