Just on the off chance that someone cruises through here before 11:59 pm of April 18th -- I'd say midnight of the 19th, but I know that at a glance that sounds like the end of the 19th, but it's actually the beginning of the 19th. 

Nonetheless, Jessie Huls and I creative forces to produce what is likely to be the next poster used for advertising the Chicago Public Library's website ( around town. This contest is actually kind of 2 contests for the price of one. BOGO contests if you will, except even the first one is free. So maybe it's 2 contests for the price of none! Wow, what gratuity...

Anyway, CPL's poster contest is running in conjunction with National Library week and while their panel comes up with 30 finalists and an ultimate Grand Prize winner (to be used in their next campaign), there is also a People's Choice Award to be decided by, you guessed it, people. Voting for this award is being done via

How to I take part in this event of equal parts creativity and democracy? Read on...

1. Go to and login (or register for a login)

2. Go view my (and Jessie Huls') poster design.

3. Vote for it for the People's Choice Award by adding it as a favorite (button right above the the image of the poster)

3a. or peruse the other designs and fatally vote for a different poster.

In the spirit of April Fool's Day, Rick Rolling seems to have been revived. I like it. I only wish that TRL was still around so that we Rick Roll MTV.

Hmmm... it's been a while since I've posted. I just don't have anything to say really. I won another poker tournament in Vegas last summer. Oh, and I'm planning to enter the Chicago Public Library poster contest. Gonna use some photos courtesy of my friend Eric's wife, Jessie.

I guess I could have just said "my friend Jessie". But I wanted an opportunity to mention Eric so that I could link to his blog too. Just in case he ever returns the favor.
