Help Us Fund the JimOnLight.com Apps!

David and Jim

David and I have worked so hard to make JimOnLight what it is today.  We’re reaching out into the community to help us keep the JOL apps running!

From David:

If any of you know me – Fox of Jim On Light – I’m a very direct person. I’m not going to be any different here.

I am the guy who makes and keeps the mobile app running. It costs a bit of money to have this outlet available to the world. I’m but one guy with a full-time job and a full-time family to support.

I’m looking for your help in keeping the JimOnLight.com App up and running for the next 5 years. As a bonus if this campaign is fully funded, the app will remain free, become available on the iPad (natively) and become ad-free.

I’m offering you a perk if you fund over $50, of enshrining your name within the app as a supporter. One lucky person will have the opportunity of having their name right under the splash page logo – a la PBS programming thank you’s.

The funding breaks down to $600 per year of operation.

Please help keep us running!

Thank you.

ROGUE RH1 Hybrid, the Video

rogue-cap

I love programming product videos.  It is the ultimate challenge of programming specificity.

Enjoy this one, Todd Murray the video director badass was the cinematographer, Mike Graham is the product manager badass who brought this thing to market, and I designed the lighting.  It’s easy to rock when you get given such awesome fixtures to play with.  This particular bit of awesomeness is the ROGUE RH1 Hybrid.  Good work, Mikey!

Jon Stewart is Leaving The Daily Show

Jon Stewart

Oh no.  Oh.  No.

Ah, crap.

You know what, everyone needs a rest.  If anyone, maybe you Jon, you have earned it, my man.  I would love to buy you a Coke sometime.

I look forward to whatever it is you’re gonna do next, and that’s a fact.  Thanks for making me laugh so hard once I pissed myself.  Also a fact.  ask Greg Owen, I was at his house.

Some funny shit, from the article at the NYT:

Speaking of Mr. Williams, a frequent “Daily Show” guest, Mr. Stewart said, “See, I see the problem. We got us a case here of infotainment confusion syndrome. It occurs when the celebrity cortex gets its wires crossed with the medulla anchor-dala.”

Noting the widespread media coverage of Mr. Williams’s woes, Mr. Stewart wryly added, “Finally someone is being held to account for misleading America about the Iraq War.”
