Peeper Dee #110

by Xina

So in an effort not to clog up the front page with these, when I have four or more submitted images, I’m going to put one image on top — of my choice — and put the rest below the fold as they say. It just means that you have to click to view them on another page.

I’ve found that blog posts are most successful when there’s a lead-in featured image.

Words just don’t cut it. THE Word doesn’t cut it either, if you know what I mean.

Today, I only have 3 so far, but I’ll expect more this evening.

I have to make one note about Xina’s image above. She took that shot laying on the floor in an old mental hospital. Those were ropes to prevent patients from jumping from higher floors.

I thought you’d appreciate the back story. Biodork’s image below is a mentally disturbed coffee cup with its knees up to its chest while humming in the corner.

I’m thinking about making it so that Peeper Dees go below the fold so that they don’t take up the entire front page of the blog. They seem to be growing. There’s at least 5 or so a day.

Do you agree? I don’t want them overwhelming the blog.

Also, would you be opposed to me using the Peeper Dee on our pro site to encourage more hits there?

Did I ask this already?

Well, you didn’t respond. So let me know.

Pat Robertson, the cosmic battle rages on. You can’t see it. I can’t see it. But it’s there. Believe me.

And people wonder why other people don’t believe them when they say they have a friend and an enemy, they’re invisible, but they are there.

Well, where are they?

Ask Pat Robertson. He’ll tell you.

And if you don’t believe him, it’s because one of his invisible friends has a hold of mechanism in your head responsible for belief.






Gotta do it: What Stan is posting at TYWIKIWDBI

Stan at TYWIKIWDBI is back blogging in full swing after another short break to get some personal work completed.

The problem with Stan is that he posts so many damn interesting things that I can’t decide which to show you. So I’m going to recommend several posts.

The best thing that caught my eye was the above picture of a person holding a copy of the Quran with the word, “LIES!” next to it. In the post titled, “Lost in Translation,” Stan explains:

Muslims in Germany try to promote their religion by handing out Korans in a campaign named “Read!”

Unfortunately for those whose first language is English, the German word for “read” is “lies” (pronounced “leese”).

I think it’s a ploy. There’s no way “Lies” means anything other than “Lies.”

Pregnant seahorses is a must look, must read. 

There’s a post on Intentional Blindness that you must read and it’s totally inspiring for further discussion. If you read it, be careful not to read too far before answering the question, “How many red balls do you count?

Check this picture before clicking on the link.


The best blogs of 2012 is a good one, but I haven’t had a chance to explore them all yet.

There’s a ton of stuff to read and gush over. So go check it out. You won’t be disappointed.



A thundering Thursday absent of thunder

It’s a virtual thundering golf clap around here right now.

I’m racking my brain for something to write about. There isn’t much coming to mind.

Our work is taking its toll on us, so Tina and I have been concentrating as hard on it as possible. You should see how Tina’s stepping up and reaching out to contacts with marketing and pitches. You’d think she really loved what she did.

The weekend in NYC was great, but we hit the ground running as soon as we got back.

One highlight from NYC was a slice of pizza we got from a joint near Central Park. It had fried breaded chicken breast with tomatoes and mozzarella. Seriously, it was one of the best slices of pizza I’ve ever had.

Tonight, I’m shooting the Kaiser Chiefs. I knew who they were before taking the job, but I’m not really a fan. It’s going to be at House of Blues, which I’m anxious to shoot at.

Anyone here like them and recommend good tracks from them. I know about Ruby.

Over the weekend, I’m shooting Hair Wars, which is a pretty major Chicago event. Hair Wars is:

 The Supreme Salon Tour as Local Salons Compete for the Regional Title of Supreme Salon produced by Windy City Media.

I’ll keep racking my brain for topics and keep it interesting. I promise.

What the funny kids are posting

When you put I have seen the whole of the Internet and Tastefully Offensive together, you get distraction after distraction. Thanks, Internet!

Here are a couple highlights:

Cartoon guy’s brain exposed reads: “You should lay down and try to go to sleep so I can remind you of your problems.”

Cartoon of god creating the earth reads, “Alright the earth is finally done. Now time to put some people in it. A generous helping of generous people, a few tablespoons of compassionate people. Just a smidgen of assholes for flavor. [he spills the assholes] Oh shit. Whelp.” 

Rory Mcilroy tweets, “If anyone is having a bad day, remember that today in 1976 Ronald Wayne sold his 10% stake in Apple for $800. Now it’s worth $58,065,210,000.” 

News paper clip reads, “Burglar. An Oak Hill community couple discovered a thief in their home Saturday after a man told a joke and heard a laugh upstairs.”
