BY GRAVESHOW · PUBLISHED DECEMBER 17, 2013 · UPDATED AUGUST 26, 2016 Last week, when we laid my grandmother to rest, the minister spoke of a poem called “The Dash“. I had never heard the poem before, but it, and it’s meaning moved me so much I wanted to share it with you. Hopefully, it […]
I’ve had this joke stuck in my head for a week. And a meme is born. Too soon? Sorry not sorry.
Yup…a real live podcast that people listen to. I’ve mentioned Sidebar in the past, and if you’re not listening to this podcast, you’re hella missing out. Seriously. Recently, Swain Hunt, co-host and producer of the Sidebar podcast, contacted me about a new podcast format he was starting, where he and one guest would discuss one […]
I’ve verbally told this story a million times, and probably written it down more than once, in fact I could probably dig back and find it written here in this blog, but today I want to make the story THE STORY. Plus, it’s a testament to how awesome my mom was, and STILL is. When […]

The Preston & Steve Show is a local (AWARD WINNING!) morning show based in the Philadelphia area. Granted, if youre not from Philly, you’ve probably never heard of them…but in the age of the podcast and Twitter, you really have no excuse. Go. Now. Listen. I’ll wait. The topics they discuss change with whatever is […]
Bing (who I’m not a fan of, which is why this is news) has come out in favor of responsive design, agreeing with the rest of us that mobile is not only here to stay, but that it’s the future we all need to design for. This is very top-of-mind for me at the moment, […]
“Everything old is new again”…or so they say. The fact is, when Hollywood runs out of ideas, they have a good time rehashing old ones…or outright stealing them, but that’s another blog post.
