strange day on the interwebs for schipul crew

The most exciting thing for the schipul crew today, besides being able to serve our clients who are the reason we exist, was definitely the Monster cover DrupalRap. Created by ahughes3, dstagg and bpotter in conjunction with a conspiracy to reduce productivity for the entire company last week, I think they did an awesome job. Check it here:

In other random news, one of my photos was used on Techcrunch and hit the twitters in volume. And the folks at redit got in a debate about a centaur that increased my flickr views by a few thousand for the day.

What can we take away from all of this? That the interwebs are a very strange place. And that video and photography are critically important skills for marketers to learn. Seriously.

call someone a clown and THEN you get fired?

Sure #tigerblood is funny. What isn’t funny is a history of abuse against women that is ignored until he calls someone a “clown.” THEN he gets fired? Baroo? From the post:

…if the show’s producers are going to take offense to personal verbal attacks the actor makes about them, why aren’t those same producers””as well as the network””offended by his repeated physical attacks against women? Particularly those that have occurred during the eight years he’s been on the show?

Great question. I have written about the media’s increased acceptance of violence against women in particular on the Chron. (via Clara Cobb)
