157 - I Saw Rhett & Link



  • I saw Rhett and Link at the NC state fair. It was a musical concert, and while there songs are silly on the surface, they are quite clever. I've been listening to their songs all week.
  • Voting is your obligation. While picking candidates feels arbitrary I've made my choices. I don't vote party line, I'm not party affiliated. I vote for who gets the job done. I also think candidates should have relevant experience. Having no experience in politics isn't an asset.
  • The Fortnite halloween costume is nearing completion.
  • I will accomplish one of my goals, an actor at a haunted house.
  • Let's talk about littering.
  • We close out with the horror movies and shows I've been watching.

152 - Fortnite Costume Updates & Graphic Design Project



  • Fortnite costume update - the tac shotgu was scaled correctly. The scar was way too big.
  • The Battlehawk costume has started by cutting/taping patterns to a duct tape dummy I made.
  • Got pants, boots, and gloves in the mail for Battlehawk.
  • Designing a logo for Box Office Refund, my other podcast. 
  • A logo has to read across different mediums, scale, and transform. Does it convey the brand message?
  • Adobe Kuler is a great tool to for color selection, even if i didn't use the recommendations this time.
  • The Box Office Refund website is launching in October. Staged a photo shoot for marketing photos. I wish i could do more of this, but it's time intensive. I did a Breaking Bad photo shoot a few years ago.

151 - Back to Projects



  • Halloween costumes will be Fortnite inspired- Battlehawk and Enforcer with the tactical shotgun and scar. I've modeled the fire arms in sketchup even though they'll be the last thing I make. They're the most fun.
  • I have the hardware for the deck, just need the wood. That project has been way too long in the making.
  • I've always wanted to make a branding iron.
