Unhinged Magazine Born Four Years Post Mature

It looks just like you! Some projects have short gestation periods, mere months. Some take for-freakin-ever. Unhinged Magazine is one of those super slow beasts. It took over four years from concept to execution. Initially planned for a 2009 launch, here we are launching in 2013 after an economic collapse, a job loss, a divorce, an international move, learning a new language, and four books (both his and hers). Finally we can have FUN which was the whole point to begin with. And because Unhinged Magazine is a community effort, we´d like to thank those patient souls who helped us along the way, and were friends even when we were being flaky,...

The margin of error was of +/- 3.1416%, with an arithmetic mean of 3, a standard deviation of 1, a frequency distribution of 4, a cumulative distribution of 1, and a variance of 6.

You too can be an online worm watcher at Zoouniverse´s Worm Watch Lab. Here’s a pic of what the worms look like: Groovy huh? Ok, I lied. I know that isn’t very scientific of me. So here is what the worms really look like. Only you actually see them moving in the lab. This one must be dead. I...

Dog’s Wall Walking Career Comes to an End Maybe Jul17

Dog’s Wall Walking C...

My dog Chico is a Wall Walker. That’s the only way I can think of to try to explain what he does. He walks horizontally across the face of cliffs as perpendicular as a wall, especially the cliff face behind the little theater in the community where we live. The first time I saw him do this, I...

Marketing Lessons from My Little Pony™ and SimCity...

Hasbro decided a while ago to dust off their old My Little Pony franchise and update it with a new cartoon series featuring new characters, story and good animation. The show has been a tremendous success with two demographics: small girls 6 to 12-years-old and 20 to 30-year-old men. I’m not kidding. Bronies (brother + ponies) form one of the most important market audiences for the show. And more importantly from a marketing point of view, they have money and they’re not afraid to spend it on all things My Little Pony. I’m not talking about a toy or two. I’m talking about a wide-scale phenomenon. There are now such things as My Little...

A Gamer’s Guide to Starting Your Own Religio...

Are you bored with nothing to do? Would you like to increase your income in your free time? Do you find that you don’t get enough worshiping? Are you more cynical than happy? If you answered yes to any of these questions, I have the solution for you: founding your own religion. Founding your own religion is easier than you think. All it takes is pen and paper, a few loyal friends or relatives (it helps if they are willing to do anything for money), a 20-sided die, a 10-sided die and a complete lack of scruples. 1.- Choose your congregation People who start religions often forget this step, but you must not. The first thing to do is to...

Dreams on a Budget Jul03

Dreams on a Budget

With the economy in shambles (or soon to be recovered, depending on who you ask) it’s not a surprise that we have started to cut things back in order to make ends meet at the end of the month (my ends actually met last month, and they really didn’t like each other). For example, Mitt Romney...

Exoskeleton Body Art

No, this is not something new in bridal wear. Remember those clunky plaster casts you had to wear on your broken arm? The days of those dirty, itchy, smelly bone menders may soon be over. 3D Printers are now able to produce custom “casts” for broken limbs and it may not be long before these printed versions become the reality for kids who fall out of trees. But why stop there? Clearly the technology could be used for much more awesomely artistic things than as mere casts for broken arms. And while the decorative possibilities are obvious—just imagine designing your own unique exoskeleton—it has the decided advantage of being...

People who completely disagree with me are rarely evil. It’s just a difference of how they view the world. While there are many reasons for this difference, an important one is their stage on the path to enlightenment. I’ve discovered that there are several well-defined categories of beliefs...
