The effort and recovery are repeated 10 times, for a total of 20 minutes.” […]

Can You Help Me Help My Wife With Her Website?

February 9, 2012

My wife needs my help, but I don’t think I can do this for her by myself. Although through our @TweetSmarter account I’ve helped thousands of people over the last 5 years on Twitter, now I need some help myself. And I’d like to have my work for her done by Valentines day 🙂 Here’s the […]

Life Needs More LOL, Less LQTM

January 19, 2012

I’m watching the TV show Lost for the first time, thanks to Netflix. I’ve rarely owned a TV, and although I’ve sometimes “inherited” old ones, I usually get rid of them, because I find it such a huge time and energy drain. But my wife Sarah and I like to do things together, so we search for […]

How to Hear Yourself As You Record Home Voice Over

January 17, 2012

While we set up the new Voice Results website, I’m posting this information here for students who need it. If you’ve taken the “Secrets of Voiceover” class from Voice Results in Minneapolis recently, your updated Home Studio handout (Word doc) explained why we recommend an external audio mixer and a condenser microphone with at least a 1-inch […]

You know the photo below, right? the earth in space? Well actually, the image above is a photo of a water droplet, superimposed on a night sky background, cleverly reflecting a 2-d photo map of the earth from space.

New Logo: Your Suggestions?

November 17, 2011

UPDATE: Could you comment here instead? I had to make some changes 🙂 Would love to hear any and all suggestions: I’m creating a new logo for my wife’s (upcoming) new website at voiceresults.com (just the old one there now). We’ll also be using the logo on jackets, e.g.: I like the middle variation below as […]

Unbounce – The DIY Landing Page Platform

Moving on from mystery ailment

November 7, 2011

You may have noticed I haven’t been very responsive for a bit. I’ve been mostly offline for about a week, as I’ve had a bit of an on-again, off-again health issue that stymied me, but got a lot worse about a week ago. Turned out to be a mold allergy problem. A steel file cabinet […]

How lack of convenience turned a generation into thieves

August 30, 2011

Yup, some people will disagree with this. First, think about that button on the microwave that automatically sets a common time and starts the microwave. On mine, it’s one minute. Just press it, it automatically starts and runs for a minute. Everyone I’ve ever asked almost exclusively uses the “instant time” button on their microwave […]
