Random Thoughts For A Switcharoo Friday November 6, 2009

So next week, we’ve decided to do a bit of an experiment. A little bloggy, blog switcharoo.

My fiancee and myself have decided to guest blog on each other’s web site for the week. Yes, I’ll be writing on Glutastic and Caitlin will be taking the reigns of the old c.t.overdrive, granting her the distinguished honor of becoming the first person to ever guest blog on the site in it’s four years of existence.

The idea is to a) expose people to different content and b) try and get out of our typical blogging routines. So if things seem a little different on Monday, don’t worry, you’ll survive.

First – Hey-ho! It looks like the NHL is finally the first in something… and I don’t mean in line for the H1N1 shot (don’t even get me started on how ridiculous this controversy is).

But in all seriousness, the NHL is the first Sport League to embrace Twitter Lists for thier fans.

Second – In conjunction with the release of Raditude, Weezer has released customized Snuggies. Which will ironically come in handy as you cry your self to sleep with the realization that one of you beloved adolescent idols has officially lost his touch.

Third – Some Type fiend is going to lose their shit because of this … Helvetica in Comic Sans – (via DarcyBross)

Fourth – Another killer T-shirt From Threadless, make sure you click on the link and zoom in on the actual shirt. Pure Genius!

They're Real - Threadless, Best T-shirts Ever

FifthThese are the companies in your neighbourhood.

I’ve been spending a lot of time at Etsy.com recently and although it is not a Calgary based company, it really is turning out to be an amazing online space for retailers. Especially for retailers looking to reach out to a larger market. I bring this up, because I’ve recently made purchases with two awesome Calgary retailers Broken English Leather and Falice Emo (who no longer seems to be selling work at the moment). These are retailers in my own city, that I would never have come across if it wasn’t for Etsy and for that I’m thankful. So, if you’re bored and looking for something to do this afternoon, you might want to see what other Calgary based Entrepreneurs are on the site and see what you find.

Sixth – I think I might just join this solely to volley clutter back at everyone who plays Farmville and MafiaWars on Facebook … But either way, EA has released a Facebook version of their popular SPORES game. Create a monster, tell it how to eat and the take over an island … Now isn’t that genius.

Seventh – I know I’m talking about hockey a lot this week, but somethings are too golden not to link to. Like for examples an introduction sequence, involving a Coca-Cola Polar Bear, rocket packs and the Destruction of a motha f$%%king planet … All to the tune of Kenny Logins. (via cpuck)

Eighth – And since I’m still ranting about Farmville and MafiaWars, here’s an interesting little article on the big money making machines that they are. In addition. It also brings to light of the accusations of ‘Scamville’ that are being levied at both Farmville & MafiaWars.

Ninth – I can’t get enough of the pixelated eBoy web site. This one is for Mr. Miller

TenthAdded Bonus And here’s one more reason why James Franco (The single greatest actor to take on James Dean) is a God. He’s now doing a two week stint on Legendary Day-time soap General Hospital for shits and giggles.
