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 […]

Could A Folding Tablet Make Microsoft Dominate Apple…Again?

January 3, 2012

Note: You can also discuss this post at Hacker News. People are still using their desktop and laptop computers instead of only smartphones and tablets.

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 […]
