New Strategy For Restroom Odor Abatement?

At some point they took away the robot air-freshener spritzers in the bathrooms on our floor. Some joker took matters into their own hands.

This particular bathroom is perennially grotty looking and smelly. Aside from the flourescent fixture, I doubt anything’s changed in it since the 1950s.

Clip Art Fail

So the brother of a friend of ours was killed in an auto accident yesterday morning. This is awful, but the local paper in his area thought the article on their web site needed head on collision CLIP ART as an illustration. What the fucking fuck?

Which made me curious. Is there tragedy clip art for the busy editor on the go? Is there, for example, genocide clip art? Turns out there are stock photos from various genocides, but what came up as the top Google Search result was just so bad I had to share:

This is obviously one of those sites who play tricks to show up at the top of Google search results, but maybe they should rethink this strategy.

Long lost photographs

About 5 years ago, I made a backup of the web stuff I’d had sitting around on a server at work, and promptly lost track of it. The other day I found the DVD-R, loose, in the furnace room on the floor. When it comes to backups and filing I’m the fucking king.

Be that as it may, I’ve started pushing all the photos up on Flickr. A couple of my favorites:

And from this set which I believe is from NYE 2004 when Terrence Parker played in Iowa City. This is my friend Africa, who was in rare form that night.
