Week in Review

This week, I have caught up on my posting schedule with the following:

Preview for the week of 6 July 2009

Next week’s photography will be images I took several years ago at various furniture markets. I found looking through those photos that I was experimenting with macro photography long before I knew the official term for it.

Next week, in continuation of the Benefits of Blogging series, I will cover how blogging gives you the ability to become an authority on a particular topic.

New Moon Parody

Thanks to the upcoming movie, G-force, guinea pigs are becoming quite popular. Here is a parody of the New Moon trailer… you’ll love the guinea pig cameo.

*Warning* If you’re sensitive to fake blood scenes, there is a part in here that over-dramaticizes the papercut in the New Moon trailer.

    Hi Kristi,

    I think Dragos said it well it the first comment. You seem to have created a bit of a phenomenon with Fetching Friday. Lots of people compile resources, but there is something holistic and synergistic about the way you do it. Anyway, I would rather enjoy it than analyze it. Thanks for another great edition and for the link love.

    I better get it in gear. The last comment sorry I had walked away for a sec to just
    seconds on the edit thingy got me.
    You have such a great round up I went to an excellent post listed and saw the person had no comments. I hope to never take comments for granted and I will go off to leave them one but not out of sympathy but it was a great post :)
    I have this weird method where I will PUSH IT and get the results I had hoped then step back. I don’t get it .I need to ride the wave and create more.
    Glad to see your site on FIRE :)
    thanks for all your support and friendship :)

    Those typography portraits are simply amazing, especially Thom Yorke. The guinea pig commercial is quite funny and interesting but I seriously doubt the movie will be also. Well, maybe for the kids :).

    Hey Kristi!! I just returned from my meditation retreat – gosh, there’s so many posts I need to catch up on at kikolani! Thanks so much for sharing the parody for New Moon – that’s hilarious!!! :D

    I’m starting a blog with a few friends. We would need multiple account access, ability to bring in custom graphics and art and monetization/adsense. I’ve looked at typepad a bit, but am concerned that it may not allow for much custom design look-and-feel. I really want the blog to look unique. At the same time, we are not all that techie, so an easty-to-use solution is important too. Also, when I try the trial it looks like it only supports one account? (I’d need multiple accounts). Thanks in advance for any and all help!
