Things in pairs – and Stephen Colbert

Originally posted on PRIORHOUSE blog:

Well I am so excited for the final episode of The Profit tonight – featuring the Key West Key Lime Pie Company .  And I was excited to just realize that the pie company – which features ALL NATURAL ingredients – well they also offer an extra tart version of their key lime pie – (have a neighbor, Debbie, that would freak out for one of those) and have a gluten free key lime pie option -  now that is awesome.

I am wondering why they picked this show to be the grand finale – and I guess we shall soon find out….
Now I think I mentioned that my boys also love the CNBC show called Shark Tank – and that comes on before and after The Profit – and someone just tweeted that the shows are a “perfect pair

and while I totally agree – it made me sad to…

I thought today I would do a little flashback to April 15, 2011 when The Quotidian Hudson was but a toddler. I hope you don’t mind. Follow the link back to the childhood of this blog!

Oddly enough, given the title “Time”

Documenting the Streets: Street Photography Tips from Dominic Stafford

Originally posted on The Daily Post:

A street photographer must adapt, improvise, and blend in to any situation — and be ready to find beauty in even the dullest of scenes.

Photographing on the streets is like no other form of photography. It’s real, it’s pure luck, and most importantly it shows life as it is, in real time. A street photographer must adapt, improvise, and blend in to any situation — and be ready to find beauty in even the dullest of scenes.

When I brave the streets of South East Asia, I never really think about anything else other than: “Would that be a good shot? Would that be a good shot? Or would that be a good shot?” I’m in photo mode, and it can become quite tiring. After thirty minutes I’m sitting down, enjoying a soft drink. But even then, I think: “That would be a great shot, and that would…

The 20 Best Summer Blockbusters of All Time: ‘Top Gun’

“MTV Goes To War.” I just realized that sums up the movie quite nicely. :)

Maverick has a problem: Too. Much. Awesome.

Maverick isn’t just a pilot. He’s the best pilot there ever was or ever will be. He’s not the best of the best: He’s the best of the best…of the best. But his superiors can’t handle Maverick. He flies the way he wants to fly — awesomely. His superiors try to teach him the value of teamwork or whatever. The super-hot lady instructor with the boy’s name tries to heal him using totally sweet neon-lighted lovemaking, and also by getting him to deal with his emotionally distant father. Maverick is dangerous. He plays beach volleyball; he plays by his own rules. Maverick is the ’80s. Maverick is America.

Maverick, most of all, is Tom Cruise. Previously the up-and-coming star of Risky Business, Cruise became a superstar in the summer of 1986 with Top Gun. The…

Titanfall Weapons Made Out Of LEGO’s

Nick Brick created TitanFall replicas made out of LEGO bricks and they look badass! He made the R101C-Carbine, EVA-8 Shotgun and Smart Pistol MK5. These weapons were made before the game actually released so it makes it that much more impressive!

Here are some videos of the Eva-8 Shotgun, Smart Pistol MK5 and R-101C Assault Rifle.

I would love to see what else Nick can do with the Titanfall universe, would be awesome to see some Anti-Titan weapons next!

The TI SensorTag—Now with added iBeacon

The SensorTag is a Bluetooth Low Energy development kit targeted at iOS developers.

I’ve talked about the TI SensorTag before. It’s an interesting bit of hardware aimed squarely at simplifying smart phone developers’ lives when prototyping Bluetooth accessories. While we’re now starting to see similar and potentially more generally flexible boards arrive on the scene — like the MetaWear — the SensorTag was the first and is still a powerful bit of bit hardware, especially for the price. The SensorTag includes six different MEMS sensors — an IR temperature sensor, an accelerometer, a gyroscope, a humidity sensor, a pressure sensor, and a magnetometer. All of these sensors can be controlled individually from the the SensorTag app — or from your own code — via Bluetooth LE.

But TI isn’t standing still. Today the company announced it is adding iBeacon support to the SensorTag, along with the ability to support iBeacon functionality on all other TI…

Tag Team Top 5 for the Week of April 14th, 2014

1. Team IOU (Kerry Awful & Nick Iggy)- The NWA Southern Tag Team Champions get their record tying 3rd #1 in the Tag Team Top 5 as a boy and his dog were absolutely unstoppable over the weekend. They defeated Xion & Stanley TWICE at NWA SAW on 4/11. They then went to IWA Mid-South on 4/13 where they won a Gauntlet Match vs. The Hooligans, Alex Castle & Frank Wyatt, and The Submission Squad, eliminating every single team from the match. There really was no debate among the official voters this week. It was a clean sweep among them. #2 in the online poll with 143 votes.

2. Men of the Year (Michael Elgin & Ethan Page)-The AAW Tag Team Champions and former 2 time #1’s in the Tag Team Top 5 defeated Rich Swann & Lince Dorado…
