It’s scary accurate.

E-Mail from my old boss:
Jon should teach history class like this.

Tada! New layout!
As much as I’m a fan of Google, I was not 100% happy with the Blogger platform. The rich text composer frequently messed up the alignment of my posts, especially when I quoted other text or added images, and the template layouts were generic and difficult (for an amateur) to customize.
WordPress certainly has its drawbacks: it requires you to pay a month-to-month third-party hosting service if you want to make significant customizations to your site (including integration of google analytics, or any other plug-ins such as feedburner). But the ease of composition and the overall aesthetic more than make up for these minor inconveniences (which I can remedy later if I decide it’s worthwhile).
The banner doesn’t really fit well with the new layout so I’ll be making some more changes later on, but for now I’m pretty happy with the change and migration, which was relatively painless. My hope is that the subscription feed stays current. What do you all think?

Tony, or by his Flickr sobriquet manmadepants, submitted this amazing photo to our Featured Photos Pool. In his own words…
“I swear on my life this is 100% real. I was walking down the street looking for stuff to photograph and this guy is just sitting outside a coffee shop with this 80 year old woman and he is taking these little sofa things out of a bag. Then he opens another compartment in the bag and there are about five lizards like this guy. Then he would pose them and they would just sit there like this. Don’t really know why.
He didn’t really explain much but he did say they take about three months to train them to do this. I didn’t bother asking if he only trained his lizards to sit in relaxing human posses or if there were other ones too. The whole thing was just to oddly perfect, I really didn’t need him to go in to detail.”
Also I like the surprising detailed craftsmanship of the sofa. Now I can say I’ve truly seen it all!
