Sometimes Colbert is priceless. Well – most of the time. This one had Amy and I laughing hard today. Enjoy your five minute break from monitoring your social media and email to see if something important is going on. Matt Galligan reminded me that this is oddly reminiscent of SocialThing’s TechStars Demo Day.

Last week there was a kerfuffle over Standing Cloud’s use of the Papyrus font for their logo. It was kind of cute and endearing and my pals at Standing Cloud reacted with appropriate contrition over offending the font police.
Today I came across a brilliant McSweeney article (thanks to @daveschappell) on Comic Sans titled I’m Comic Sans, Asshole. My wife Amy is sitting next to me as I type this laughing her ass off. As a special bonus, our friend Comic Sans makes fun of Bauhaus and then goes and parties with Papyrus.
One of my favorite quotes of all times is “these are not the droid you are looking for.” The only “misdirection” line I’ve ever heard that comes close was Swordfish – actually, it wasn’t a line, it was the whole movie. Or maybe just Gabriel. Or maybe Halle Berry. I can’t remember anymore.
My partner Ryan sent this around today. Poor storm trooper. I wonder how a storm trooper commits seppuku.
I’ve always been a huge Van Gogh fan. Starry Night is one of my favorites and is also regarded as one of Van Gogh’s best (or most) important works, even though he apparently didn’t like it very much.
This morning, when cruising through my Daily folder which includes the Astronomy Picture of the Day site, I came across a new reproduction titled Starry Night Scavenger Hunt. Using Starry Night as a backdrop, it includes a bunch of stuff including a comet, a spiral galaxy, an open star cluster,a supernova remnant – well – and the rings of Supernova 1987A, the Eskimo Nebula, the Crab Nebula, Thor’s Helmut, the Carhwheel Galaxy, and the Ant Nebula. And some other stuff.
