Here We Is!

Thursday, June 26th, 2008

I’m back in Jolly-’Ol-England. Touring with the band for the summer. If you’re trying to call me, you won’t get me. So leave a voice mail on the “answer-phone” and I ‘ll get back to you in…not so soon, it better be a funny message though.

Okay, That’s all for now. Cheers!

Coldplay’s new album Viva La Vida comes out on the 17th on the American side of the Atlantic, and the 12th in Europe.  If you want to take an early listen to the album, check out IHeartMusic. I’m a big fan of Coldplay, and am looking forward to this album.

Take a listen and let me know what you think about it.

More Ancient Japanese Wisdom

Tuesday, June 10th, 2008

A while ago I posted about a neat book called Urawaza: Secret Everyday Tips and Tricks from Japan. I recently came across a post on LifeHacker on five secret Japanese tips to make life better. My favorite, and in my mind the most helpful, is how to make a baby stop crying.

1. How to make a baby stop crying
Dilemma: Sure, the baby’s cute. But why won’t he stop crying?
Solution: The secret to stop a crying baby lies in making the sound you produce during the mouthfeel stage of wine tasting.
Why this works: When babies are still in the womb, the noises they can hear are limited to those in the 6000-8000mHz range. The sound you make when you slosh the liquid behind your lips during wine tasting takes place at about 7000mHz, reminding the baby of a time when the world around was peaceful and the whirs and stirs inside Mommy’s tummy soothed him back to a sleepy state.

Thank You Lifehacker

Elevator Pitch

Saturday, June 7th, 2008

Last Thursday I was working on an elevator pitch for a business networking organization breakfast I was to visit the next day. I decided I needed to sit down and really wrack my brains to come up with something really remarkable. I was sure that if I put my mind to it, everyone at the meeting would instantly line up to become our clients.

However, I may have been overconfident in my literary ability, because after about fifteen minutes of hard thinking, this was all I could come up with.
