I will watch any and all news-related videos we post on Phillyist, from start to finish, to prevent such an unfortunate incident from happening again.
Our 14th episode of Fork You is you, and this time we answer some egg related questions submitted via Ask Fork You. If you have a question, please ask us and we might answer it!
Hurrah for commerce! I have earned enough both this month and last to cover the cost of running this blog, using only money generated from the blog itself. It isn't much, but it is a start.
I like to think of myself as a quiet guy, but it would seem that I must have a lot to say, otherwise why would I be starting yet another blog?
Your guess is as good as mine (my guess? Keeping myself busy keeps my inner demons a peace, and doesn't give me time to reflect on my life) but another blog I have. Stalking the Bard is all about me and Shakespeare (Willy Shakespeare that is). It might not be for everyone, but I think I'll have a blast writing it. Check out my first post over there to find out what the heck it is all about.
But I think I am looking pretty darned good today!
And speaking of lookin' good, I made some tweaks to Blankbaby's CSS (that's the file that controls what the blog looks like). You might have to force a reload to see the new look (or empty your cache).
HEY! YOU! Don't forget that the Philly Blogger's Meetup is this Saturday. I'll be there in all my glory (clothed glory, that is), and I hope to see you there as well!
Whatever could this be?
I know Feedburner stats are more art than science, but 281 subscribers? I am not even all that interesting to myself, so why the heck are you people reading this?
Make no mistake, I love you all as if you were my own children. I am giving you a big old virtual hug right now, but in the words of William Shatner, 'Get a life!'
What say ye all? Should I start posting at The Daily Scott once more?
It never fails, I get a little sleepy and than BAM! Out of no where I get this burst of creative energy. I was chatting with Marisa earlier, and she said, 'I have to go to bed.' And go to bed she did (I assume), and I thought that was a good idea. So I was preparing to go to bed when I said to myself, 'Oh, I'll just take a look at some of that Fork You footage I have for this week's episode.' An hour and a half later I am now encoding the episode and I am not tired in the least.
What up with that?
I haven't exactly been a bloggin' machine over the last week or so, and don't expect that to change too much this week. At the moment I'm sitting in bucolic Terminal D of Philadelphia International Airport awaiting the boarding call for my 8:30 flight to San Francisco. That's right, kids and kiddies, I'm off to yet another Macworld (check out last year's pictures).
Ahh, I just heard that this flight is oversold. Woo! That's just great. Luckily, I upgraded to 'Economy Plus' at check-in though sadly I still have a middle seat (and that isn't just said for me but sad for the two other people in my row, but what can you do. At least I have lost some weight, so it shouldn't be too bad for those folks).
I'm glad I went to theCenter City Philadelphia Macintosh Users Group meeting. Not only did I get to meet some Mac users but the topic being presented was 'Using Final Cut Express,' which is what I use to edit Fork You! I learned a bunch of stuff that is going to make my life much, much easier.
I might even present at a future meeting.
I have been a bad meetup organizer, it is true. Not only did I miss the last two Philly Blogger Meetups, but I neglected to remind folks that they were even happening.
I'm a jackass.
When: Saturday, December 16, 2006, 3:00 PM

We'll be in the back giggling and trackbacking. You won't be able to miss us.
Soon I will have a Lifestream. Then I will get a life, and I'll be all set!
This is pretty much what I do at work all day.
That's how many words I have written about Apple on TUAW. 300,811 on 2137 posts. That means that each post averages 141 words. I'm good at keeping it brief, it would seem.
Not so impressive considering that there are only 4 lists that one can be on (A, B, C, and D).
Fork You isn't the only new thing in the Blankbaby Media Empire today. That's right, I finally got off my duff and did something with Blankbaby.com.
The major features include a custom Google search bar that only searches my blogs (sweet, huh?) and one place that links to all the blogs I am involved with. Comments are welcome.
This is a long time coming, but Fork You is alive! What the heck is Fork You? Why, it is a cooking video podcast that I am doing with Marisa, Thad, and Angie. The first episode is up, and I want you all to watch it. The audio needs some work (and it'll be better in the second episode, which we have already shot).
Let us know what you think in the comments.
It pleases me to no end when I see 'old media' companies blogging. The White House Photo of the Day from Time is a great idea. Have your White House photographer post a photo a day from the stack of shots that she takes but aren't used. What a great idea!
Too bad it isn't really a blog. Why not? Well, it is missing two things that most people take as the baseline for something being considered a blog:
- Comments (this one is debatable, since many blogs don't have comments. Gruber, I'm looking at you).
- No feed. This one, I'm afraid, I will not budge on. If you don't have a feed, you have a website not a blog.
So says Frank Barnako, and you wouldn't disagree with MarketWatch, would you?
Sadly, it seems that my TUAW post that is getting the most attention as of late was the one about my MacBook randomly shutting down. Sad for Apple, not so sad for me since they fixed it so quickly.
God bless girl nerds. Keep it up, ladies.
This post isn't creepy, is it?
