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.
