Link to Someone New, Part 3

Time is short and it’s been a while since I’ve done this, so here are three posts from blogs I’ve never linked before:

  • Domino Computation: A computer is basically a series of switches. Granted, they’re very small switches, and there are millions of them in most computers, but the basic theory of the linked post is that you can do some computation using primitive means – in this case, dominoes. It’s a pretty amazing post if you’re interested in this sort of thing, and the author has lots of pictures and even videos of how he set up his domino calculator.
  • pdb Vs Matlock Jr.: pdb owns a video game and movie store and likes to make fun of his customers, as in the linked post which has a very Acts of Gord type feel to it..
  • Dreary Queen: This blog focuses on the corporate logo niche. In the linked post, they tackle Dairy Queen’s new logo, which is very lame. “Dairy Queen’s ellipse is one of the most highly recognizable marks, it is (was) unique, memorable and impactful. Despite this equity, Dairy Queen considered it was time to change and make the wrong moves in all the wrong places”

That’s all for now.

  1. Somehow I find that it makes no sense in blogging about a series before it ends, unless it’s something truly spectacular (e.g. all the noise I make about Manabi Straight). The whole impression can change as the ending approaches and is seen.

    Some folks blog per-episode, but the whole thing rides on immediacy in such case.

    So, although I’m almost done with Vandread the 2nd Stage, I haven’t posted anything. I can tell you that the eventual post is going to have a segment “Was Steven Right?” and “Vandread vs. Stellvia”.

  2. Part of the reason I posted the initial thoughts was because I knew I wasn’t going to have that much time to write this week (busy week at work, plus travelling this weekend (just got back now)) and I wanted to get something out there. I did manage to finish watching the first series on Thursday, but I had to do laundry, pack, and tidy up some work stuff before I left on Friday.

    Anyway, I’m back now and will indeed make another post about the first series (but at this point, I’m rather looking forward to how some of the story elements are completed in the Second Stage, and I even have the first disk, which I’ll probably start tonight).
