It’s revenge of the filmstrip people today. Actual advise from the boss in an email forwarding me their latest request for a change to the site they approved yesterday: “Can you see what you can do here. One thought I had was to make a really horrible looking mockup and hope they see the light. Kind of like… if you don’t want to do the dishes anymore, break a few. Of course, knowing these people, you will make something hideous and they’ll love it. Let me know.”

Of course, it wasn’t the final final approval. It was just the preliminary final approval. The penultimate approval, perhaps. Except, it went down like this. “We love this! Cut it and put it live!” Which we did. Today, it went like this: “Say, can we just take that little piece of film that’s coming off the roll and make it all twisty and twist right off the page.”

I tried to explain that we are using “stock images” — photographs of film canisters that someone else took, and apparently no one has ever considered photographing a film canister that starts out close up enough to see the photos on the film, but has a long twisty piece that goes off into oblivion in just the way you envision. Perhaps if we could get ahold of a film canister and try taking our own pictures, but of course we might have to start charging you for that time…

Oh wait.. this is a “freebie”.


PS. I love this Chris icon. I used to have this as the wallpaper on my computer back in early college days, and I distinctly remember my Dad asking me who the very angry man on my computer was. Funny memory for me.

Anywho… wedding invitations for Marc and Jenny apparently went out last night. I’ve been on the phone with her off and on several times today. She finally convinced Marc to fly to Florida for their honeymoon cruise instead of leaving at 11pm on their wedding day and driving all night to stand in line to board a cruise ship. Of course, by now… airfare is scary for that week. Seems it falls over prime spring-break travel dates and, as luck would have it, their cruise departs from Ft. Lauderdale.

Hey look.. I managed time on the elliptical machine AND for a post without the phone ringing! Woohoo!

    I wish I could generate 1/1000th of the appeal that good ‘ole Chris does in the opposite sex. I’ve heard so many females talk about Chris that it prompts me to shout “Man FUCK Chris!!” and then they look at me all scared and slowly back away.
