Create your band name & album cover!
This is a fun/quick one. Here’s what you do:
1 - Go to Wikipedia’s “random” page:
The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.
2 - Go to Quotations Page’s "random quotations":
The last four or five words of the very last quote on the page is the title of your album.
3 - Go to Flickr and click “explore last seven days”
The third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.
4 - Use Photoshop or similar to put it together.
5 - Share with your friends! Put it on Facebook or Flickr
Here's a study I did a couple of weeks ago as an expansion of my Ski Boot ideas into the usability of ski boots.

Simple, but effective prototyping technique from Google.
The fact that light can only travel so fast proves the existence of time! The thought of putting a sign on a planet that is then seen 100 million years later because it takes that long for the light to reach that place... I think that proves time right? However, how fast is the universe expanding? Does it expand faster than the speed of light at some point? Is there a relative curve that speed operates on? Is it linear or exponential?

In Creative & Critical Thinking this morning our class developed mood boards and brainstormed ideas for a "secret" client. They rightly are to remain secret since they are starting a business with unique ideas. I was super excited to help them with their ideation! This is the kind of thing I want to do for a living - Consult with small innovative businesses about new ways to approach their products or services.
After some research for my Human Factors that I will post soon, I've made a new revision to my Ski Boot design. Hopefully I will have a prototype and a full concept idea by the end of the semester.
In my Reading for Ideas class we will be required to record approximately two journal entries per week. I like blogs, pictures, vidoes, links etc. and I do most of my quantitative research online, so I think it will be appropriate to record these journal entries here to be tagged as "readingforideas" so that they can be referenced together at a later date.
These journal entries will consist of thoughts provoked by our readings in class and how it might apply to our personal/professional work.
We are currently reading from Italo Calvino's "Cosmicomics"
Here's to more future documentation of my mental process! Let's figure this out!
Super overwhelmed lately. Too many classes, too many assignments, and too many engagements. I love a busy lifestyle, but I'm not totally an all-over-the-map kind of guy. I like some continuity, but that will be my challenge this semester. That's my opportunity of peril. These 18 credits are not going to be the death of me. I will make them work for me. I'm going to try my absolute hardest to make everything flow together into a grand symphony of MCAD Portfolio Progression!
That's what it's gonna take.

In other news, I went to Afton Alps yesterday and took advantage of the beautiful 40F weather. It was a glorious thing. Afton is surprisingly big, and for having such a small vertical drop (350ft.) they have a surprisingly good terrain park(s). I was surprised to find at least 6 individual park sections including some prime jumps maxing out at around 35ft. Needless to say it was good to spend some time with my feet off the ground. There was a photographer present as I sailed over the last big jump and I hope to see a picture pop up somewhere on the internet soon!
Next on this list --- I had a massage this morning! First time evAr! It was wonderful. Vanilla oil is great. I want to go back. The measly 25 minutes that I could afford was not enough. I want 120 minutes with hot rocks on my back! However, Sanctuary Spa was kind enough to give me a ticket for a free hair cut on my next visit. Thanks guys! I'll be back!
