I find flag design to be very interesting, and I’m constantly surprised to see how much bad flag design there is. I credit/blame the 99% Invisible podcast for giving me this appreciation. It started with the Vexillonaire episode. I learned so much from it — first of which… Continue reading »

Best PS4 Games

Posted on Dec 29, 2015 in Random

We got a PlayStation 4 for Christmas last year and the quality of games didn’t disappoint (especially coming from a PS2 and Wii). Like anyone I have my favorite games, and if any gamer sees this list they’d probably say it’s the worst list of best… Continue reading »

Video: Flatlanding in Foxboro

Posted on Jun 9, 2014 in BMX, Video

This weekend I went riding with some friends at some basketball courts in Foxboro, MA (which are seldom used for basketball) and shot some video. Not an amazing edit — we’re just riding for fun, not to blow minds — but it’s another sample of what… Continue reading »

Stop Vertical Video…Again!

Posted on May 8, 2014 in Random, Video

Remember when I said this blog was dead? Well, right after I posted that, I saw something that drove me crazy enough to raise it from the dead (at least temporarily). More vertical video. It’s a huge pet peeve of mine and I’ve ranted about this… Continue reading »
