CreepySanta 2012

As much as it pained my office mate, I started the process of organizing the 2012 edition of CreepySanta in October. It’s not the be-all, end-all Christmas album but it should be a good mix for you to keep your Christmas party hoppin’ or help soundtrack your tree decorating festivities.

This ain’t the first Christmas music rodeo around these parts either, feel free to hit the archives for past compilations.

New work: Feed the Hungry with Project 7

Project 7 – Feed the Hungry

I’m excited to be able to finally share a project that we’ve been working on for a bit here at eightninety headquarters. We were lucky to be able to partner with Project 7 to build a custom application to help launch/promote their newest goal – provide one million meals to those in need.

Honestly though, who wouldn’t be excited to participate in something like that? Luckily you can be a part as well – anytime you buy a Project 7 product you are automatically helping the cause (or seven causes, as it is). You can also help by heading over to the Feed campaign site, submitting your smile, applying to be a “Feedvocate” for your area, and spreading the word to anyone who will listen. Thankfully, dealing with hunger is a pretty attainable goal and one we can all work towards together.

Project 7 - Feed the Hungry - 1 million meals

You can buy Project 7 products in plenty of places including their newest retail partner (and every wife’s favorite store), Target.

EDIT: There’s a number of ‘Easter eggs’ hidden throughout the site, if you can find them all, I’ll buy you a pack of Project 7 gum.

About Project 7 – Products for Good
Project 7 is a consumer goods company that harnesses the power of everyday purchases in order to create a positive impact in American communities and abroad. In 2008 Tyler Merrick created Project 7 to give people a high quality product at a competitive price and one that gives back at the same time. The products created under the Project 7 umbrella, include mints, gum, coffee, water and tees and are distributed nationally in over 7,000 stores from coffee shops and grocery stores to mass retailers including Wal Mart and Target. For every purchase of a Project 7 product, good is done in one of the seven areas of need in the United States – Feed the Hungry, Heal the Sick, Hope for Peace, House the Homeless, Save the Earth, Quench the Thirsty and Teach them Well.

For Sale

I’m selling some things on Craigslist. I would be much appreciative if you would either buy them or tell somebody you know to buy them. I cannot confirm or deny full truth to any of the descriptions that go with the postings; I can however confirm that the pictures are real, I took them myself.

Recently overheard conversations at Mavs headquarters…

If you’re not an NBA fan or follower of the Dallas Mavericks then you’ve recently missed out on a sports equivalent of Chernobyl as a vacation destination. The start of the NBA free agent signing period began on Monday and Dallas has quickly been informed that unless roofied or held at gun point, big time players don’t actually want to come play here.

After some investigative research and chatting with some people on the inside, I was able to come across the transcripts of some recent phone calls made by Mavs GM, Donnie Nelson, to NBA players about their intentions of signing with the Mavericks.

Feel free to read along with the unedited conversations:

Deron Williams

Mavs: Deron? You’re awesome, the best player available, and a Dallas native, interested in playing for the Mavs?
D.Will: Nope /click

Dwight Howard

Mavs: Dwight, you’re the best big man in the league and you obviously want out of Orlando. We’ll put up with your crazy, get you out of Orlando, pay you Gates-money and let you wear the cape; so, how about it?
Superman: I’ll only sign with the Nets.
Mavs: But Dwight, the Nets have nothing to trade for you, no money to pay you, and your GM says there’s no chance in Hades that he’d take back the trash heap they’re willing to give for you; we’d pay four guys to carry you around on a shoulder drawn chariot everywhere you go and flatten the entire city of Garland if that’s where you decided to put your estate. How about now?
Superman: Nets
Mavs: I don’t think you understand Dwight, you have no leverage with your GM.
Superman: I’m Superman.
Mavs: Not quite following Dwight…
Superman: /click
