Random Thoughts For Post Number 800! Friday January 29, 2010

So as c.t.overdrive enters it’s 5th year of existence, it’s time to celebrate the 800th post on this crappy little blog.

Yes, the old c.t.overdrive is at big 800, which is twice as large 400. See kids, that’s the sort of Math you learn after 6 years of university.

Anyways, like I’ve said before thanks for sticking around and I hope you enjoy the ride.

First – Interesting news from the world of Photography, an award-winning photo dubbed the lone wolf was recently revealed to be a fake (via. russic)

…. Ah … so many jokes lone wolf jokes … so little time.

Second – Have you seen Sherlock Holmes yet? If you have you probably remember the stunning Opening and Closing credits? (I haven’t seen it, so I’m not sure how stunning they really are) Anyways, are you interested in how they were made?

Well … There’s an article for that

Third – The Fantastic Four issue #26 parlayed into Donkey Kong For the Nintendo.

Fourth – There is so much wrong with this. The Las Vegas Wranglers of the ECHL are having a Girl Scout Night to celebrate, what else but girl scouts. This is only creepy, because this is the same team that had a +21 night and also has Prison Night in honour of corrupt Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich. (via. j3r3mjf).

Nice unis guys. Nice unis.

FifthThese are the companies in your neighbourhood

No feature this week, but I will let you all in on a secret. iPhone users and iPod Touch users take note!

Sixth – In a long list of nightclubs in the city that have died a quiet death, the Warehouse and Underground are no more. My memories are fuzzy, but the Wizard Beer Tap at the Underground still sends shivers down my spine.

Seventh – An amazing article by Wired on the affect (or is effect) of the Madden Football Franchise on this generation of pro football players.

Eighth – Zappos.com, finally unleashed a redesign of their web site. Which sorta, almost makes me want to buy shoes. P.S. Please don’t tell my wife about this redesign.

Ninth – c.t.o’douls and wintr at last nights yyc4Haiti event at Flames Central. (For those curious it was a fantastic tweet-up).

Tenth – Last, but not least.

I’ve started reading Julien Smith’s blog InOverYourHead.net, since his talk at Calgary’s Third Tuesday meet-up. Julien is writing some brilliant stuff about media and human relationships. His book Trust Agents is a definite pick-up for those interested in this stuff. One of his latest posts Why Twitter was Inevitable is a great look at the basic concept of the network.

Well worth the read if you’ve got a moment.
