When you open a pizza box, there’s only one thing that happens

Tuesday, 24 May, 2016

Photos of people opening pizza boxes, by New York based photographer Chris Gampat. There’s not a sour face to be seen. I’m not sure if this particular aspect of our lives has been documented already, but I’m happy someone did so now.

Friday, 13 May, 2016

Watch Dead Ahead, an animation by Donal O’Keeffe, that outlines the basic premise of many horror films, and you won’t need to watch another one again.

I thought imaginary friends were meant to make life easier…

Thursday, 12 May, 2016

Imaginary Friend, a short film by Paul Briganti, because sometimes we all need a friend who is entirely of our own creation.

It’s actually a pilot presentation for an upcoming NBC, I think, TV series, but I hope more of the workplace, cheapo dates, is to be featured in the show… it was easily the funniest part of the story so far.

Can you live on bacon alone? We should at least consider this

Thursday, 12 May, 2016

Bacon is one of the most popular topics of discussion on the interwebs, so I generally leave the conversation to others. Not today though, especially when the question is, can you live on bacon alone? I think we all know the answer to that, though I expect some people have given the matter serious thought, at one time or another.

Tuesday, 26 April, 2016

Emotional responses to corporate text messages… have you ever been tempted to reply to the generic, blanket, text message that large companies send to their entire customer base? Timothy R. Dunn was. Especially amusing though are the responses generated by Dunn’s replies.

So, what exactly does your dog do while you’re away at work?

Friday, 22 April, 2016

Do you ever wonder what your dog, at home alone, does while you’re away at work? By the same token, does your dog ever wonder what you do, while you’re away at… work? I think the answer really only poses yet more questions.

The great escape of the kitchen scissors, animated

Thursday, 21 April, 2016

If an octopus can escape from an enclosed aquarium to the open sea, then surely a pair of scissors can abscond from the kitchen of a multi-storey apartment building?

I don’t want to do anything with my life, except exist…

Thursday, 21 April, 2016

Chethan Kamath may not know what he wants to do with his life, but he certainly knows what he does not want to do. I think the list of not-want-to-do items pretty much covers all bases.

I don’t want to be a real-estate agent, a stock broker, investor, or a businessman. I don’t like manipulating numbers or people to make money. It is usually the driving force behind picking these professions. Not that making money is a bad thing, but it’s just not my thing. I’m terrible at math. I’m terrible at spinning money. I make bad bets and poor decisions. I trust people a lot. I’m very gullible and easy to rip off.

At the end of the day corporate jargon is as old as the hills

Tuesday, 5 April, 2016

What do the words contact, interview, donate, electrocution, balance, and endorse, all have in common? They were once, back in the day, buzzwords, or management speak terms, of the kind you’ll find in a latter day workplace if you touch base at the end of the day, and leverage those deliverables.
