classic. I bet we could keep each other entertained with design horror stories for hours, much to the chagrin of everyone here :)

I used to use a bunch of great design quotes for my email sigs, feel free to use them!

Phrases for Creatives, #4:
"Someday, we'll look back on this, laugh nervously and change the subject."

Phrases for Creatives, #6:
"The fact that no one understands you doesn't mean you're an artist."

Phrases for Creatives, #12:
"I'm not being rude. You're just insignificant."

Phrases for Creatives, #19:
"I'm really easy to get along with once you people learn to worship me."

Phrases for Creatives, #22:
"I'll try being nicer if you'll try being smarter."

Phrases for Creatives, #26:
"My toys! My toys! I can't do this job without my toys!"

Phrases for Creatives, #28:
"Chaos, panic, and disorder - my work here is done."

Phrases for Creatives, #44:
"You're just jealous because the voices only talk to me.

or a classic like this:

"I know you spent 6 months researching and designing our new logo but my daughter picked out this color blue from her crayon box last night, can we change everything to this color by this afternoon?"

When i was about 16, friends of the family stored their little Sunfish sailboat at our house and said i could use it whenever i wanted. I knew nothing about sailing since i owned a ski boat but that didn't stop me and a buddy from wheeling it down the beach and trying. It took us a few days of flipping it until we got really good at it but i wouldn't have traded a minute of it for anything.

Best part of the story, my buddy's wife was preggo at the time and he had a beeper with him at all times. we were way out into the river beached on an island having a smoke when...beeep beeeeep beeeeeep! yikes! we hauled ass to the nearest marina where he called his brother to pick him up and take him to the hospital. I sailed that little boat all the way home by myself and made it to the hospital right before the baby was born. That baby just turned 21 and got married a few weeks ago. :/

We continued sailing almost everyday that summer until the owners came and brought our toy home :(

Good times.

I bought 2 cases of 1-liter flip-tops and have used them several times with the same washers and they have been fine so far. I did also get an extra bag full of them just incase but for now i just clean and spin them.

You can always add some gelatin as soon as you get to your destination to aid in clarifying the beer.

if you do this, please notify anyone you think might be a vegetarian as some of them won't want to ingest anything made with it. My wife went veg a year ago so i'm just alittle more aware of stuff like this now.

i made about 20 of these for a client over 10 yrs ago when they were still called "animations", old-fashioned, i know.

I created them using Adobe After Effects by masking out the moving sections and laying them over a still-frame background with a bit of feathering. its not difficult, but it can be a bit tedious depending on the content.

I'm sure there is some new-fangled software that makes it much easier nowadays using multiple stills and bracketing. in my day we did it by hand, pixel by pixel, uphill! both ways!! GET OFF MY LAWN!

but i digress...

The Pub / Re: Pint of Law | A Legal Blog For The Brewing Community

Love the pint gavel, its excellent, it adds a nice light-hearted feel to starkness of the color. My only criticism is the typeface, its very cartoonish, you might want to choose something alittle more serious to reflect the law part of the site, the gavel takes care of the lighter side. Something like Trajan, Garamond, etc might fit the bill or maybe a slab serif like Unit or Chunk Five.

good luck with the site!

Tony

Thanks, Tony!  I appreciate the suggestion on the font.  I'm trying to strike a balance between: 1) legitimate legal blog; and 2) something somewhat lighthearted (the audience is brewers, after all).  I'll give a few other fonts a shot.

edit: I changed the header font to ChunkFive.  I think it looks better.  Thanks again!

My pleasure, and Chunk Five looks great!

cheers!

Went to the store to pickup a six of something yesterday on the way to a party and saw Racer 5, went to grab it until i saw the price, $13.99! I think $10 for a six is a my limit so I grabbed a Full Sail APA which was excellent, and only $9.99!
