A Long-Exposure Proposal


@aronaltmark over on Twitter posted this really sweet video a week or so ago, and I just had to post it.

This guy Derick Childress proposed to his girlfriend Emily Kern in a very, very unique way – through a series of 10-second long exposure photographs put into video form.  The process is captured in the video below – I can only imagine how much planning went into mapping out the font characters on the ground from the window’s vantage point.

If you’re wondering, Emily said yes!  Congratulations, Derick!

Derick also has a page dedicated to this process and to the story.  It’s a neat, quick read!

Congratulations, Cat West and Joe Cabrera!


This weekend two excellent people, Cat West and Joe Cabrera (@consolecat and @hisbgait on Twitter respectively), tied that special knot in Vegas.  You know the knot – the one that can only be untied with a lawyer, a judge, and hurt feelings.  Two of the coolest people I have ever met get to officially cover each other on their respective health insurance plans, take a deduction on their IRS 1040 form, and blame the dog for those random Sunday morning barking spiders.

Congratulations, Cat and Joe!  Welcome to the club!
