Los Angeles Dodgers iPhone Wallpaper

In cel­e­bra­tion of the Dodgers win­ning 2 con­sec­u­tive games against the NL’s #1 team, the 97–64 Cubs… at Chicago’s Wrigley Field, here’s a lit­tle some­thing to show some Dodger Blue pride in you. I’m not bag­ging on or taunt­ing any Cubby Fans out there, but you have to admit, the Cub­bies are well favored going into this series. That, and they had home-field advantage.

Any­ways, I’ve had this wall­pa­per a while back on my reg­u­lar desk­top from Man­dolux (Mando Gomez—great pho­tog­ra­pher by the way)1. I have cropped it a cou­ple of weeks back when I got my iPhone. I thought I’d share it with my fel­low Dodgers everywhere:

Let’s go Dodgers! Go Blue!

Google Chrome’s Logo Inspiration from Pokemon?

As I was try­ing to con­firm my hunch about Chrome and the Poke­mon ball look­ing the same, I ran into a search result in Flickr which led me to Cole Hen­ley’s image above. Awe­some. I am not alone1.

Sweet­ness! My first offi­cial, (per­sonal) busi­ness cards. The ones that weren’t actu­ally printed via Vista Print =)

Thanks to Eric of Print100.com for help­ing me get them here quick. I just put the order on Thurs­day, May 17—and they arrived today… only 5 days! Fast indeed.

Turned out pretty well for not hav­ing any proof­ing. Those Pan­tone books totally helped get­ting it close to the right color. I’ll prob­a­bly do another run some­time soon to exper­i­ment on this. Awesome…

Note: Only $33.83 for 300 w/ Spot UV applied on my name… I need a bet­ter desk lamp.
