Losing your data from your computer can be a big pain, but I read an article on data recovery, and it explained the types of data recovery options out there. Hard drives fail all the time, and there are quite a few warning signs that should be watched. If you have an older computer this is particularly important. Don’t lose your precious and valuable files!

Google Street Road Trip Footage
A lot of people have asked me how I created that background footage of Google Street View whizzing by in this most recent College Humor cartoon. The answer is simple: Hundreds and hundreds of Google Street screenshots. You’re probably wondering if that took a long time. Yes it did… and yet somehow I gathered even more “footage” than I ended up using. So instead of letting it go to waste, I made this fun little music video. Take us away, Chuck…
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim, because it was grassy and…
“A latticed warehouse door at Corby House on Curtain Road in London provides the ideal setting for lenticular graffiti, and by far the best use of it (so far) was this rabbit by ROA [one of the Geyser of Awesome’s favourite street artists]. From one angle, you can see a fairly realistic rendering of a furry rabbit, and from the other you get a black silhouette with the rabbit’s veins and arteries showing in bright red.”

Last summer my bestie and I took a road trip to CO to see the Avett Brothers in concert in Boulder and Red Rocks. It was one of the most awesome and beautiful trips I’ve ever taken. While in Denver we thought we might get a tattoo commemorate the trip, but not knowing any local artists, and not having a whole lot of extra time to do the tattoos we put it off til later.
This last January we finally made our appointment. Mel D of Inkjunkies in Tulsa, OK has done work on both of us before, and he is always great. She got a birdcage on her arm (to match the lyrics in Head Full of Doubt/Road Full of Promise), and I got this bit of lyrics from Laundry Room.
Also, yes, tattoos on your feet fucking hurt.
Erudition meet bitchiness. Love it.
