Ann: How many drinks of alcohol do you consume a week?  Ron: One.  Ann: That’s it? One drink?  Ron: One shelf.  Ann: Do you exercise?  Ron: Yes. Lovemaking and woodworking.  Ann: Do you have any history of mental illness in your family?  Ron: I have an uncle who does yoga.

I’m a fan of the US TV show Parks and Recreation and am particularly fond of the character Ron Swanson. Ron is a man’s man; he likes the great outdoors, survival and making stuff with his bare hands. He dislikes bureaucracy, vegetarians and health & safety. He really is a fantastic character and so I am overjoyed to find out that Nick Offerman, the actor who plays him, is pretty similar to his character in real-life.

Click here and check out Nick Offerman’s Woodshop where you’ll find all manner of handmade wood items, designed and made by Nick and his colleagues.

I also found out that Nick is married to Megan Mullally, Karen from Will & Grace, which makes me like him even more! I bet there’s no *ahem* wooden comedy in their household. Sorry!

DC Universe Online – Cinematic Trailer

Great trailer for DC Universe Online. This game has already been released but I haven’t played it. I’m not a gamer really, but I do enjoy a good comic book movie. This little trailer made me go ‘Wheeee!’ – so many cool superhero moments. It’s just a shame that a DC movie will more than likely be a bit of a dud. Marvel get it right almost consistently, but DC seem to struggle (with the exception of a certain trilogy by Christopher Nolan). I hope Man of Steel in 2013 shakes this off, as I am giddy for a new take on Superman.

Moo

I was recently recommended by a friend to have a look at this site and consider using them to make my business cards. I’m in the process of setting up as a freelance photographer and need to get some proper cards made as opposed to the ‘printed off at home’ crappy ones I was using.

What I liked about Moo was its quirkiy design. It’s online design function is incredibly easy to use (albeit it took me ages to upload my pictures, but that was my fault as they were very big files) and the ability to customise our design is also great. There is a gallery of existing standard design s for you to choose from, or you can upload your own images, designs and graphics to make something truly unique. There’s also a load of other people’s work being showcased to give you inspiration should you need it.

My mini-cards arrive next week, and I’m excited to see what they look like.
