Found this inspirational doodle in an old sketch book. Bonus points if you know the origin of the quote! #creativity #quotes #play #whosaidit #morningpages
Too Cool Tuesday: This week’s cool thing is the adorable, hilarious Bee and Puppycat, brought to you from the masterminds over at Cartoon Hangover. It’s like Adventure Time meets a quirky twentysomething female sitcom meets weird cat comics. Needless to say, I’m in love. Bee and Puppycat has only 8 days left to meet their Kickstarter goal, so if you become as smitten as I did after this episode, don’t forget to show them some love. I hope there’s more cute weirdness where this came from.
Sure, you could always go dressed as a sexy kitten. But why settle for the lowest common denominator when there are so many creative possibilities to explore? In honor of National Cat Day (seriously—it’s today), we put our heads together to come up with six different ways to rock a cat costume…
Well, I wasn’t going to wear a costume, but maybe I should go as “Bodega Cat”
Welcome to my new weekly series, Cool Thing.
Every Tuesday, I’ll feature a Cool Thing I’ve found. Most of the time, it will relate to writing, sound, or tech.
This week - It’s a Podcast Thing!
(What? Too corny? It was too perfect to pass up!)
Ever since I got into podcasting nearly five years ago, people have always said to me, “I would listen to more podcasts, but I don’t know what or who to listen to. How do you know what’s good?”
Thanks to the website Podcast Thing by Daniel Howells (also of siteInspire.) you can “meet” interesting people who also happen to love listening to podcasts. Howells interviews people-of-the-moment, like Cards Against Humanity creator Max Temkin. Doc Midnight of Third Coast Comics, and appropriately, NPR’s Melody Kramer. They recommend their favorites and talk about their listening habits.
Whether you’re new to podcasts and are overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, or you find yourself in a rut listening to the same old shows, Podcast Thing is a fun resource, and definitely a Cool Thing.
Now that the dust has settled and life is in order here in my new digs in NYC, this blog will be returning to the usual content, in addition to the funny or interesting reblogs and a few Instagram shots.
Look for short written pieces, product reviews, audio interviews, and posts about storytelling & sound in the coming weeks.
While you’re here, feel free to check out my new home page. It’s a nice, fresh, minimal theme featuring tabs that will link you to my other blogs and projects.
Cheers, and enjoy!
