Get A Grip

Finally, a worthy song to go with this dandy of a video.

One, two, three.

This.

The last week went a little like this:

Fall in love with Parks and Rec. Watch so much Parks and Rec. Become upset that there isn’t any more Parks and Rec to watch. Use the internet to look into everyone involved ’til you find this picture and realize you’ve won the internet, success! Feel better, even though it hasn’t changed the fact that you still have no more Parks and Rec to watch until Thursday.

I have all the time in the world.

I’d always wondered what would happen if I worked less at my punch-the-timeclock job. Would my art flourish? Would I spend my free hours editing film and posting new finds on Etsy? Would I find that I didn’t need that job anymore and be truly happy and successful doing what I’ve always wanted to do?

Six months after making the transition to part-time and I have the answer: Nope. I mean, sort of, but mostly nope.

We have learned a very important lesson of late here at Casa del Typo: The internet is out there, and people are looking at it.

That is to say, don’t go posting potentially secret pictures of yourself at the Daft Punk studio on Flickr or historical photographs of naked ladies on your tumblr, because someone will find them, and it’ll probably be the wrong someone.

Luckily for me, my family, friends, and bosses already know of the majority of my oddball proclivities, so there’s not much to be wary of, but still! You can never be too careful! I’ve come up with some new guidelines for myself, just in case you’re the wrong someone:

– Cuss just enough, in just the right places

– Limit oneself to drinking no more than one bottle of cheap sparkling wine when cameras are present

– Tell the internet only almost everything

Be careful out there, folks!
