Jimmy Fallon, Billy Joel, and an iPad app: just watch. 

This just showed up on Digg today, and… awesome. A skill I envy and will never ever have.

My wife banned me from any further mocking of her cats on social media. My life’s not interesting enough to have anything else even remotely interesting to say, so I guess I’ll just sign off for good.

Crap… so tempted…

90% of data in the world today was created in the past two years.

Sigh… decades of my life have been spent living mostly in ignorance.

Seattle-based graphic designer Lacy Kuhn has created super cute packaging for the National Cereal Corporation. They plan to launch the Heartland line, which celebrates breakfast cereals as an all-American food—each flavour in the collection would be named after a state’s nickname. 

I wish I was smart enough…

You know that’s not a *thing*, right?

You probably recall with much fondness last year’s The post where I confess to nearly killing our CEO*. (Since then, I’ve moved on to work for a different company, undoubtedly to the relief of said CEO.) Unsurprisingly given my predilection for digression, that post ended up being a list of great songs for air-drumming.

Left unwritten in that post was any mention of great songs for air-keyboarding, mostly because I don’t think that’s a thing. But if it was a thing, tonight it hit me: Roundabout, the classic song by the band Yes, makes an awesome song for air-keyboarding. I now know this because my wife just walked into my office, caught me air-keyboarding to Roundabout while I was supposed to be packing for a trip**, and said “What the hell are you doing?,” to which I responded “air keyboarding.” (She’s not a fan of 70s music, even when her husband isn’t slacking off and air-anything-ing to it. I’m recalling the pained look on her face a few months ago when I was playing God Save the Queen while doing the dishes.)

*Yes, I realize that I barely post on Tumblr these days (it’s a combination of too many distractions, and honestly, a nagging feeling of annoyance about the site since it’s acquisition by Yahoo), and should probably craft something better than a post about a 40-year-old song, but ‘cmon - Roundabout!

**One of the things I’m supposed to be doing is trying on some new bathing suits I bought, since we’re headed out on vacation soon. This was a lot more fun in my 20s than in my less-streamlined 40s, sadly.***
