Hey friends,

We all know that in this brave new digital world, there is only one true test of friendship and loyalty: the Facebook "Like" button.

In that spirit, I'm hear to announce some great new Facebook pages that we hope you will "like" over and over again:

Build Conference in Belfast with Jesse

| 0 comments

As long as I'm announcing conferences I'll be a part of, I should mention that I'll also be "compering" the Build Conference in Belfast this November. I'm pretty sure "compere" is European for "host." It will be my daunting responsibility to make sense of the proceedings during the conference's Big Presentation Day, drawing out themes and making off-color jokes. (OK, I added that last responsibility.) My stepmother's from Belfast, and I haven't been since I was 10 to see her ten thousand brothers and sisters, so I'm looking forward to the trip. If you're a designer on the other side of the pond, I hope I'll see you there.

Gamewave Commercial Parody

Terrific commercial parody from Jordan, Jesse and friends.

Some language may be NSFW. Depending on whether your workplace is vagina-friendly.

Jesse on Sklarbro Country

Jesse recently visited Sklarbro Country (the podcast of Jason and Randy Sklar) to deliver a very funny fantasy report that does not discuss any aspect of the upcoming NFL season. You can find the episode, "Twitter King Me", here.


Jesse Dissects "Watch the Throne"

| 1 comment

Jensen Karp of The Hype Men was kind enough to invite me on his new Kevin Smith-affiliated podcast Get Up On This to talk about Jay-Z and Kanye West's new album Watch the Throne. It's a solid ninety minutes of rap nerdery, and features not just Jensen and me, but also 88 Keys (who produced a track on the record) and hip-hop legend slash past TSOYA guest Bun B of UGK. I had a lot of fun getting in deep on a very interesting record, and I hope you'll give the show a listen.

Mail Order Mysteries

| 0 comments

I contributed an afterword to this really cool book - Mail Order Mysteries. It's a great-looking collection of ads from old comics for things like Ray Gun plans and X-Ray Specs. Each is presented alongside the actual item you received if you ordered it. I'm guessing they asked me to write the afterword because they thought it would be fun, but what I wrote turned out to be a kind of sad meditation on growing up.

Anyway, it'll hit book stores September 10th, but you can pre-order it now. Great leafing-through book, a great gift, fun stuff. Except for my afterword. That's sad.
