Trying out some potential new glass frames from Warby Parker. Thoughts?

I posted this for work a while back. I think it may be one of my favorites so far this year! #tf

I still can't believe smartphones are capable of creating images this clear and mine isn't particularly new (gs3). What phone out right now do you think has the best camera? I don't get to upgrade until September, but the camera will be a big factor in what I get.

#autoawesome #throwbackthursday  

I uploaded all my old photos to Google Plus and this set of photos from a day trip to Chicago got the motion treatment. I love the little things that pop up with G+ when you least expect it.

I found this article much more measured and factual than the stuff on the big news channels. #ukraine #t

It seems like everyone on TV has gotten into the fear mongering business.

Curious what an out of character Stephen Colbert sounds like? #tf

 He's terrific in this extended interview he gave at Google HQ last year. His comedy is more subdued and intelligent than the character he plays on Comedy Central. I don't know how well this will translate to a late night talk show format, but I'll at least check it out.

+Evan Donovan  This is about as out of character as he'll ever get, I think. You gotta remember as much as the Colbert Report character is, well, a character...it's still built around Stephen Colbert's actual personality and comic sensibilities. It's entirely likely that while he won't be a constant arrogant blowhard out of character on The Late Show...he'll still be this sort of silly, often intentionally oblivious, and sardonic individual. He'll be able to make dumb jokes about smart subjects and etc.

Personally seeing this video gives me a lot of faith in Colbert's version of Late Show, and I was already on board for that quite frankly.

*Ranting about the How I Met Your Mother finale a couple days late. * #spoilers #t

I wouldn't have minded Ted getting together with Robin at the end if they didn't have to destroy Barney's character to do it. To me, he has been the most interesting character on the show for a long time because he actually went through a character arc. 

Ted starts the show as someone who believes in love and destiny and he never changes. He spends 10 seasons waiting for destiny to strike and than it finally does.

Barney starts from a completely reprehensible (but funny) place. Than they slowly start showing us the tragic things that made him this way. Absent Father. Cruel ex-girlfriend. Unbalanced mother. So we start to feel compassion for him even if we still can't approve of his behavior. Than we get a couple attempts to get better: Norah and first relationship with Robin. But in a pretty realistic move he fails at his first attempts. Than at the end of the series we finally get to see him pull it together and commit to a life with Robin. There you go. Full story arc. Cue curtain. Oh wait. No. Not only do the divorce after 3 years, he completely reverts to his past ways. And instead of being redeemed slowly over the course of several seasons, we get a 10 second conversion when he sees his daughter. 



Sorry. I guess the end lesson is that I had no idea how emotionally invested I was in How I Met Your Mother. Guess that means they did there jobs somewhere down the line.

I used Google's AutoBack Up tool to  upload my old photos into Google+, and I thought I would share a few for #throwbackthursday 

This one is from my family vacation to Hawaii back in 2006. I used the #hdrscape  filter and it gave it a real ominous, stormy look. I'm sharing the original for reference.

Which version do you like better?

I think the added detail in the rocks (in the first picture) is aesthetically pleasing, and I like that version better because of it. But it does look stormy, which seems inconsistent with what the landscape actually looked like (based on picture number two). I like the #hdrscape , yet I wonder if there's another filter that can keep the craggy details without making it look like one of the latter Harry Potter movies.
