Tuesday August 17… I was all pumped to watch Judo on the Bravo Channel from 11pm-12 midnight. They wound up covering Sailing from 11-11:30. Now I’m a big fan of the lesser known sports in the Olympics. But Sailing was incredibly boring to watch. (And I used to watch Home Shopping Network as a kid […]

Monday August 16… Judo! Judo! Judo! I love Judo. It is my new, favorite Olympic event. They look like brothers fighting. They don’t want to throw full swings and put the other one in the hospital, but they want to knock the other one down and show dominance. It kinda reminds me of bears fighting, […]
Sunday August 15… There’s only so much of gymnastics that I can take. And it’s only day 3 of the Olympics. Though there is one fun thing you can do while watching. Make different swoosh sounds for each event. I find that pummel horse is the best. Whoooooosh. Whooosh. swoosh. shwoosh. shooooooosh.
Saturday August 14… Andrea came up with a nice cheer when an American (or your favorite country) does something good. You pump your fist in the air ala Tiger Woods and say “Good Fun”.
Every day of the Olympics I will post a comment or two. I’m already a few days behind, but I’ve been keeping notes. It’s just a matter of uploading them. Enjoy. Go Estonia. (The cartoons you see in the header are Pheros and Athena, the mascots of the 2004 Summer Olympics… weird, but better than […]
monkey art is cool. Fling monkeys are molded monkeys that artists customize. I came across this link today. And last night I made two monkey paintings. The second of which is perhaps the ugliest painting I have ever made, but you can’t go wrong when monkeys are your subject matter.

OLYMPICS FUNErki Nool (Estonian) won the decathalon gold in the 2000 olympics in Sydney. DECATHALON! That made him the world’s greatest athlete! When the news broke, I put up a sign in my apartment window. Looks like Erki’s only event in the 2004 Olympics is the Men’s “10-n”. Whatever that is. Looks like it’s some […]
In honor of the opening ceremony of Olympics, I am wearing my shirt with the Estonian colors. Be on the lookout for the entrance of Estonia during the ceremony tonight. Though freakin’ NBC always cuts to commercial when Estonia enters the stadium.
I love the illustration on the masthead for postcardmailer.com. He is an angry, old man who needed his postcards yesterday. And it’s a nice touch how they integrated him into the design. The background is a clean, subtle, almost slick graphic and then you have this wild cartoon character jumping around; all of which is […]
