End of the experiment

A few new items around here, but dat­ed back to Sep­tem­ber. That is when I start­ed an exper­i­ment in mov­ing this blog to anoth­er ser­vice. I want­ed sim­plic­i­ty, and Pos­ter­ous cer­tain­ly gave me that, but it wasn’t what I need­ed. Yes, I still crave sim­plic­i­ty, but Pos­ter­ous works one way: post to Pos­ter­ous, and it will put your stuff every­where else (Flickr, Twit­ter, Face­book, this blog, etc.). I tried, but I couldn’t work that way. I need to be able to post with what­ev­er tool I have on hand, my phone, my blog, iPho­to, email… and have it show up every­where.

Plus, and this was the kick­er, I couldn’t fig­ure out how to keep my email and keep my Pos­ter­ous account both at this address, dannynovo.com.

Maybe if they pro­vide a super easy solu­tion for that, I might be back.

In the mean­time, here we are, still.

Now back to your reg­u­lar silence. Man, I should update this blog more.

Order Yourself an Offbeat Soda Pop

I saw this a year ago, and thought the basic idea of this store was so cool that I went ahead and ordered a case of weird sodas. They sell stuff you can find at your local organic/specialty store, but they also car­ry nano-brew sodas I’ve nev­er seen before (or since). Super expen­sive, all things con­sid­ered, but you should real­ly try a cucum­ber soda before you die.


See­ing this on kottke.org today made me think about order­ing from them again. Also, while cucum­ber is super fas­ci­nat­ing, rose-fla­vored was most­ly good smelling, but I wouldn’t get it again.  Also-also, if you’ve had one local brew sarsaparilla/root beer, you’ve had them all, so don’t waste your expen­sive case slots on one of them.

Order some­thing, and sup­port the small guy: http://sodapopstop.com/. I’ll join you.
