Almost giving up on Google + ‘s Photos
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 8 January 2014, 1:37 pm
I think I give up on being able to edit/arrange/title large batches of folders using Google + photos. The problem is that if you have more than, well, like 80 in a folder and need to arrange it… you can DRAG AND DROP batches or individual pics to arrange. The problem is that if you […]


About freelance writing and crowdsourcing your paycheck
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 6 January 2014, 10:24 am
A funny thing has happened over the last few years, and I’m still not sure what to think about it. It’s the popularization of crowdfunding as a source of income, not just as a way to fund the making of something. We’re all familiar with Kickstarter and its various, promising projects (in my case, it’s […]


Steam Black Friday sales lead me to glorious gaming
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 1 December 2013, 10:32 pm
I was NOT a fan of Steam for the longest time. At all. I hated how you had to run the damned thing just to play a game, it felt intrusive and silly. Now, however, I see how handy Steam is but more importantly I can see how handy it is for independent gaming. It’s […]


Mmmmmm, delicious!

I’ve really been enjoying Defiance lately. It’s great to jump into, sure, but it’s also great to kill several hours with. That is, if my arm doesn’t fall off. I bought a lot of inventory expansions and can go out into the field with a mostly empty inventory and come back with it packed with […]


..even State of Decay doesn’t sound fun because I have been up all night doing some life organizing. If you don’t know what that is, it’s basically my attempt to catalog most everything in my life with a date and time. That way when I am 90 I can look back and also be able […]


6 Amazing female-fronted songs that make me go bonkers
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 16 October 2013, 10:49 pm
I might or might not be in love with all of these ladies. Of course, my heart is reserved but you get my point. Sprawl II by Arcade Fire: Good golly, there’s something so powerful about this song. I adore upbeat, bittersweet songs. It takes a lot of cues from Cyndi Lauper as well, one [...]

Dear god, what did @UPS do to my package?!
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 28 June 2013, 8:39 pm
So I come home to find a package on my doorstep. I was expecting some very large paintings and found this: (click for larger pic) Then, after opening the package I found that the deliveryperson had broken not only the frames in a few places but also tore open the backing paper. The actual canvases [...]


Well, I sent my loaner Chromebook Pixel back to Google today. I did it with a heavy heart, simply because the device is such a pleasure to look at. The Pixel is named for its amazing screen, a 12.85 “, 2560 x 1700, 239 PPI, 400 nit brightness screen with 4.3 million pixels. It’s also [...]











Stuff I Like: Gundam Model Kits

I’ve been loaned a Chromebook Pixel for the next several weeks, (from Google) so I am going to be giving it the same treatment I did with the Samsung model. For a month I used the Samsung almost exclusively (or at least for a great deal of work) and reported on what I found. If [...]

Is disabling comments a good idea?
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 2 May 2013, 2:10 pm
I wanted to fire off a quick vlog to ask if comments sections/official forums really serve much of a purpose? Do they just create drama to pull in hits? I ramble a lot but I have an excuse: I’m not a smart man. Anita Sarkeesian TED talk with comments disabled/explanation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZAxwsg9J9Q Years-old blog about my [...]


More memories for the digital life collection
Posted by [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 29 April 2013, 10:36 am
I plan on filming a quick video about the digital life collection obsession I have, but basically it’s just a collection of most of my life — or the important bits of it anyway — collected together in one big digital package that I can keep track of and organize. The idea is that by [...]


Hipster or monster?

If you follow George Takei on Facebook, you’ll know that when he posts something it gets a lot of comments and coverage. It’s been pretty fun to see him grow into an internet sensation, and watching him use that position to spread messages of tolerance and inclusion has been thrilling. The fact is that the [...]

My name is Beau Hindman, freelance writer, artist, podcast and vidcast host, drummer and animal lover. I tend to talk a lot, live with moderate Ulcerative Colitis (holler with any questions) and work out of my house with my wife, two dogs, two cats and one crazy bearded dragon.

How to be 38 and dress up as Finn the Adventurer
Posted by Beau Hindman [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 7 March 2013, 7:28 pm
1) Be 38. Man, woman or whatever you’d like. (Just be too old to dress up as Finn.) 2) Dress up like an older Finn:   I made the sword, we paid for the crochet BMO from a con. Leala made the backpack and hat — check her tumblr for details — and we bought..
