Tylenol Hydration Tracker -- Program to help track 8 glasses of water daily

I personally have a problem drinking 8 glasses of water a day, and I know I get cranky if I don't, so this helpful little reminder is going to be nice. It is the Tylenol Hydration Tracker. It is a little program that runs on your computer and has a reminder (with optional sound) that pops up when you need another fill up. I just downloaded it and I am curious to see if it is going to help. And sorry mac users, its only for windows xp and vista.

Check out "Urination" on Wikipedia

Don't ask how I found this, but check out this picture on the Wikipedia page for Urination titled "A man urinating in Copacabana beach".

I don't know if that is a joke or not, but I sure got a good laugh out of if. Looks like the greatest place to pee.

Redesigned "Head East" Album Cover -- Digital Letterform assignment

The assignment was to redesign an album cover from the 60's to 80's in Swiss Style. So me and my buddy Ryan went down to a local record store and picked out some jewels. Below is the record I picked out, Head East - Flat As A Pancake, with the hit single Never Been Any Reason. This album cover is just funny.

One week and about 7 designs later, I landed on the one below.

Burt's Bees Natural -- My new cologne

Yes that's what I said "Burt's Bees has a cologne?!". I was at a Market of Choice drifting up and down the aisles on a regular Sunday evening when what did my wandering eyes did appear but a tester bottle for a "Natural Cologne". So I took a whiff. It smelled amazing. "Fresh citrus oils of Lemon and Orange and energizing Bergamot are enveloped in the warm, spicy depth of Cypress and Fir". Its a woodsy manly like sent, but not overly manly like "Hey I'm all sweaty from chopping up a cord of cedar". Its more like "hey I just chopped some wood. Now come on baby light my fire". That's the best way I can describe the scent. So I went online and bought a bottle. So if you see me around, go ahead and give me a whiff (no, don't do that, that's weird. I mean you can if you want, just make sure I don't catch you).

Passion Pit/Mayer Hawthorne/Bear Hands Concert Recap

I had a superb time at the concert on Saturday. Bear Hands was a great opening band. Passion Pit was also great live. They have great performance skills, they sounded as good as on their album if not better, which I was surprised because the lead singer has such a high voice.
BUT what I really want to get to was the second band of the night Mayer Hawthorne. THIS BAND FUCKING ROCKED IT. They had such a classic sound. Watch the video below to know what I'm talking about. Man I had the best time watching them. I am not that big of a dancer at live shows, mostly because I am usually one of the tallest guys in the concert and I have no idea how to properly move my gangly appendages to any sort of musical rhythm, but when this band came on whoooweee I didn't care, they hit some sort of chord inside of me because I was vibeing all over the place! That soul music just gets to me. But this band wasn't just soul, they laid down some great love makin' music, but they also had some great dance tunes that just got the crowd movin'. I would love to see these guys again for sure!

Einstein's Riddle -- Yea I solved that shit

My roommate picked up the book "Einstein's Riddle: Riddles, Paradoxes, and Conundrums to stretch your mind" by Jeremy Stangroom. It makes the brain hurt. My roommate and I completed the hardest puzzle in the book. It says only 2% of the population can complete the puzzle (I don't believe that though, it's not that hard).
Try it

Comment me if you want the solution. Good Luck!
