We Feel Fine


Today I received my complimentary copy of the new book “We Feel Fine” in the mail.  The book is “An Almanac of Human Emotion” created by by Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar, and is a combination of photos and sentences that contain the words “I feel” or “I am feeling.”  Their basic summary of the project is “In 2005, we wrote a program that scans all blogs every few minutes for sentences that contain the words “I feel” or “I am feeling”. Four years and 12 million feelings later, we decided to write a book on what we’ve found.”

The reason that I received a complimentary copy is because stuff from my blog was featured.  They emailed me a while back asking for permission to use some stuff and I agreed.  Then they stayed in contact letting me know the status of the book and even invited me to the book launch in New York, which of course I was not able to attend, but still thought it was pretty cool to be invited.  Then today, my free copy of the book came in.  It is a pretty cool book, I would recommend checking it out!  You can check out the interactive online version of the book here.  And you can view the book here.


Have I Told You…

...how much I love Zach Galifianakis?  No… well I do, so now you know.  You can watch the rest of Zach’s utterly awkward, yet fantastically funny “Between Two Ferns” interviews here.

Happy Earth Day 2009!

Earth Day

Virginia Beach does a pretty good job of recognizing and celebrating Earth Day every year.  If you live in the area, above is the flyer for all that will be going on at Mt. Trashmore on May 3rd.  It’s worth a trip up there with your kids!!!  Hope that everyone made an effort today to keep lights off, etc in an effort to recognize this important day.  Kaiden was real big on keeping lights off in the house tonight, Ashton pretty much did not care as long as he could keep watching Alvin and the Chipmunks.

Surfrider Foundation sent out the above email, which I thought I would share:

Earth Day: Be part of the wave of change.

Here are 5 simple things you can do:

  1. Conserve energy to help slow climate change. Global warming will dramatically affect our coastlines.
  2. Avoid using single use plastics. They often end up on our beaches and harm sea life. Instead, use refillable and reusable bottles and containers.
  3. Plant an ocean friendly garden. Native plants use less water, reduce runoff and help keep our beaches clean.
  4. Don’t hose down your driveways. It wastes water and causes oils and other pollutants to end up in the ocean. Use a broom and dustpan instead.
  5. Make a donation in honor of Earth Day to the Surfrider Foundation. It’s never been a better time to be part of the wave of change.

Happy Earth Day!!!
