May 25th, 2010 by Sean

Towel Day is an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001) who wrote the awesome book “Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy”.

On this day, fans around the universe proudly carry a towel in his honor. Do you have your towel with you today? I surely do. Remember, Don’t Panic!

The Vendor Client Relationship

May 18th, 2010 by Sean

As most of my friends know, I’m a web and graphics designer. I also do custom programming and build website applications.

With my line of work, I have ongoing vendor and client relationships which brings me to the video below:

IMHO this video pretty much describes how the typical vendor client relationship can go – worse case scenario.

I’m sure as you watched this video, you were wondering:

Has Sean had client and/or vendor relationships like this video?

In my 12+ years of consulting, I can honestly say that the answer is yes, however they are not all this way because if they were, I would have stopped consulting a long time ago.

Cinco de Mayo – 2010

May 6th, 2010 by Sean

When American students, going to American schools, are sent home on Cinco de Mayo for wearing t-shirts with U.S. flags on them, a line has been crossed.

Administrators at a California high school sent five students home on Wednesday after they refused to remove their American flag T-shirts and bandannas – garments the school officials deemed “incendiary” on Cinco de Mayo.

The actions taken seem to me like a blatant violation of the students’ First Amendment right to free speech.

After hearing about this story, I’m seriously pissed off to no end. Why is it ok for everyone but “white Americans” to be proud of their heritage? To me that’s just racist.

Ramones – Pet Sematary

January 16th, 2009 by Sean

As always, I love my Apple iPod’s shuffle feature. Having so much music, I would normally forget about classic tunes like this gem by The Romones.
