Old Navy, we're through

Dear Old Navy,
I'm not going to go all John Moore on you and analyze the problems with your brands, because lord knows there are plenty, but I do want to let you know that I need to end our email relationship. I'm not sure why I fell for you in the first place to be honest. Maybe it was a late night affair with your web site for a pair of cheap jeans, maybe it was my marketing curiosity, wanting to keep track of what you're up to - I'm really not sure - but I need to end it now.

Why am I breaking up with you? Because I only wanted to be contacted by you and your hot sister (company), Banana Republic, from time to time. I didn't subscribe to receive offers from your newly adopted footwear company, hence you are technically spamming me.

I'm sure you didn't see this coming, but that's the sort of thing that happens when you ignore the risks of violating our relationship.

I wish you the best of luck and want nothing but success for you, but realistically we've grown apart and it's time for me to move on.

Charlottesville, Skinheads, White Supremacists, Trump and Idiocy

I'm having a lot of emotions about what took place in Charlottesville, Virginia this weekend. None of them are good or positive for the direction of the United States. The GOP rode a media whore, a second rate TV "star", and lifelong con artist to the White House to help advance their agenda -- of which they have no idea how to implement.

The biggest problem is, Trump is a well documented racist that tries to help legitimize FOX News and Alex Jones and every racist thing in between. What these media properties all know is that a) division works and b) some people of faith will believe anything. Trump pushed the Obama birther theory, he declined housing to African Americans and he employs employed a racist in former Breitbart employee Steve Bannon. I'm not going to get into his circus of racists on staff including Gorka and Miller, because they aren't worth the words.
I have a lot of conservative friends that voted DRUMPF with hopes he'd bust up Washington. An…

How to Rick Roll Someone

I've noticed a lot of traffic to my blog from a post I did on Rick Roll. In particular, people are looking for how to do it. So, without further adieu, here's a quick 1, 2, 3 on "How to Rick Roll Someone."

Pick your target. This should be someone not suspecting a peculiar link, email or heads up. Works great if you're the guy/girl in the office known for sending YouTube links via IM
Grab the URL. The YouTube video is probably the easiest to snag, because the URL isn't a dead giveaway. Sites that truncate URLs like SnipURL and TinyURL are handy if you want to send folks to
Pick your delivery method and send! IM, email, blog (wink!), what-have-you.

Please, feel free to get creative. Our programmers used a "Can someone test this site?" email to the office to Rick Roll the entire staff. Or better yet - send the URL along to unsuspecting family members as "Our newest family pictures!".

Another fun way is via conference or phon…
