So, I was sick one week…and last week was a holiday. Time to start the work week off with another jam. This one is from Tom Tom Club, and it’s called Genius of Love.

One of the things I love about this song is that it get’s the party started no matter where you are. It’s got a little something for everyone. My indie-rock friends and hip-hop friends alike are fans of this tune. This is one of those everybody will lose their mind if you play this kinda songs; just ask any DJ.

Additionally, the art and animation in this video appeals to many of my graphic design colleagues. My wife, Stacey actually found this vinyl album at a thrift store here in DC. We have the album cover framed and hanging above my desk as a matter of fact.

As many of you probably know, I am a fan of hand drawn typography and I enjoy seeing design work down entirely by hand. So enjoy this video & music, as it pleases on many levels.


I am reminded just how limited the English language can be. I just had a tasty gyro from this new Mediterranean joint in Alexandria, but nothing could express my emotion after taking a bite.

I mean, come on, do grown-ups really show just how excited they truly are about something? When was the last time someone really knew how excited you were about something?

This video pretty much sums up “awesomeness.” Next time you want someone to know how excited you are, nothing says pumped like a giant red pitcher bursting through a wall.

The Kool-Aid Man is a cultural institution! So I bow before thee Kool-Aid Man, as your image has officially replaced the word: excitement!

That’s an enthusiasm gap if I ever saw one! Oh yeah!
