Clicking “no” exits the installer. Is it just me or is this complete gibberish?

Birthday card from Grandma

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

My 90 year old grandmother sent me one of the coolest birthday cards I’ve ever received this year. It is a hand-made card with a funny picture of her on her own birthday on the front. Inside in a voice that sounds like she’s trapped she writes, “We’re making cards these days. (Can’t you tell?)”. That cracks me up. It’s even signed on the back. Go grandma!

Oklahoma City NBA Logo Update

Thursday, July 31st, 2008

As I wrote previously, ESPN page 2 writer, Paul Lukas, recently proposed a contest to design the uniforms for Oklahoma City’s yet unnamed NBA basketball franchise. I immedially whipped up a concept based on a little spoof piece I had done a few days earlier. The results were posted to today along with a nice mention of my entry. You can see it and the full list here in Lukas’s column:

I love this video showing a League of Justice-style gathering a various typefaces personified.

Bonus points for Comic Sans represented by a tight-wearing, dandy super hero and Arial Narrow as a southern redneck.

So, my previous post about the new Toby Keith inspired Oklahoma City NBA logo has been pretty popular with visitors coming from all 50 states and several countries.

ESPN page 2 writer, Paul Lukas, has posted a Design contest: Oklahoma City needs name, logo, unis. So I’ve put the big guy on a home and away jersey and submitted it. Hopefully it’ll end up on for all to enjoy.

Here’s the graphic for those who are curious

The NBA Comes to Oklahoma City

Thursday, July 3rd, 2008

Oklahoma City is a buzz this morning with the news that we’ve finally landed our own NBA franchise. Within hours of the announcement this leaked image showing the new team name and mascot was discovered:

That’s right the new team will be called the “Oklahoma City I Love this Basketball Team!”s. In a snippet from the press release leaked with the image, I Love this Basketball Team owner, Clay Bennett commented on the selection of Oklahoma celebrity Toby Keith as the team’s mascot:

“Toby is a local legend. With his love of chest hair and barbeque, Toby represents the hopes and dreams of Oklahomans and, indeed all Americans. I can’t think of a more meaty face to represent what is sure to be America’s team.”Clay Bennett, owner, Oklahoma City I Love this Basketball Team!
