Yoda Remixed (Feel the Force)

From the creator of the Symphony of Science comes this rather entertaining Yoda remix. Who would have know that Yoda was so musical?

A Slight Design Tweak

After spending several months with Twenty Eleven’s awesome out-of-the-box looks, I finally decided to drop in a few tweaks. What you see before you now is almost entirely the result of Twenty Eleven’s built-in theme options, with absolutely no CSS work, and a few custom fonts.

With the built-in options, I set the background and link color to the shade of blue that my previous themes used and “borrowed” the background image from Fruit Shake for some extra texture. I didn’t tweak any of the CSS this time, but I did add a Custom Design upgrade to utilize Snicker for the headers and Ubuntu for the body text.

New Death Star Attack Sequence

The new Death Star attack sequence from Star Wars: A New Hope has been revealed at last!

No, of course that wasn’t from the upcoming Blu-Ray release, but can you blame me? As I mentioned before, if George Lucas keeps tweaking things every few years, I’d rather see Malcolm Sutherland re-imagine the entire series.

San Francisco Road Trip

After having so much fun at WordCamp San Francisco, my wife and I decided to head out on a road trip back up to San Francisco, California. Along the way to San Francisco, we stopped for hiking in Aptos, our main hotel in Burlingame (right across the bay from SFO for some great airplane shots), Golden Gate Park (and the Conservatory of Flowers for some great close-up shots), the Automattic office, the Palace of Fine Arts, Coit Tower, and finally Solvang to see just how easy it is to turn a historic Danish community into an outdoor shopping mall.

For some reason, the auto-focus on my old camera decided that it was done with this world after the WordCamp trip, so I made this trip with my shiny new Nikon P500 and wound up with a ton of great photos to share. Feel free to also check out my roadtrip2011 tag for some more photos via my iPhone and the WordPress app’s awesome Quick Photo feature.

Well, Solvang used to be a historically preserved Danish town in California. Now, it’s basically an outdoor shopping mall. Here’s a windmill.
