John McCain’s Debate Notepad

Exclusive photo of John McCain’s notepad from last night’s debate:

A Good ‘ol Triple Fisting

It’s no surprise to me that the very same scheming Wall Street financial engineers who masterminded such risky practices as credit default swaps and naked short selling have unveiled their latest, and perhaps most brilliant way to keep raking it in – the “triple fist”.

Out with the old, in with the Snooth

Hold on to your shoes people. Or at least tie your shoelaces very tight. Because what I’m about to tell you is going to knock your socks clean off and I don’t want your shoes flying all over the place and hitting some person in the face.

Tomorrow I’ll be leaving my post as group creative director at DCF Advertising as I transition my career trajectory from advertising into interactive and information design. So starting next Monday I’ll be settling in as the full-time web designer at my favorite website ever, Snooth.com.

I’d be remiss if I didn’t first say that the folks at DCF Advertising have been great to me for the past four and a half years. And when I told them I’d be moving on they were incredibly understanding and supportive. I’m going to miss working there. But enough with the tiny violins. Let’s talk about wine.

I’m so psyched to be working at Snooth it should be illegal. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Snooth, it’s the world’s largest online wine database wrapped in a slick interface (designed by my buddy Clint) and backed by a home-grown, extremely powerful social network and community. I could call it “Facebook for wine” but that would be a gross understatement. It’s a place where you can review wines (even if you’re a wine idiot like me), see what your friends are drinking and reviewing, and find wines close to your home. But here’s the kicker – Snooth’s magical algorithm will recommend wines for you based on what you like and dislike – automatically. So it’s a great site for people who know everything about wine and for people who know nothing about wine. Stop what you’re doing right now and create a free account and add me as a friend – my screen name is solomania9. Do it. DO IT!!!

So the bottom line is that working at Snooth will allow me to stay on the cutting edge of today’s web technology, while utilizing my passion for creating engaging and memorable experiences on the web and beyond. That’s a roundabout way of saying it’s going to be pretty fucking sweet. I’ll keep everyone posted.

Now please carry on and start picking up all the smithereens that used to be your shoes.

ID Real Estate Partners, LLC Website Launch

I just finished creating the website for ID Real Estate Partners, LLC – a New York based real estate company that offers a progressive approach to real estate mixed with boatloads of experience.

Long-time readers of this blog will remember a photoshoot I did at the top of Nelson Tower (link here). Well as you may have guessed, that shoot was for the ID Real Estate site. I’m very happy with how everything turned out, and especially glad that I didn’t die in the process.

Banksy in SoHo

Today I spotted what looks to be another Banksy painting in SoHo, on Broadway and Howard (it’s facing the green patch on this map). Click on the thumbnail to view it larger.

I wonder what he’s trying to say?

Ear Plugd

Wanna see something gross? You never realize just how dirty your earplugs are until you place them next to a brand new pair. Make sure you’re not eating anything, then click here.

Buttplugs will be covered in a separate entry. Pun intended.

Death Trap

I spotted this on Broome Street today. For whatever reason, these pieces of wood were covering an open doorway in the sidewalk outside a Chinese welding company. It’s quite possibly the funniest thing ever.
