Morphic Resonance w/ Rupert Sheldrake

This shit is so fascinating. The idea isn’t quite as far fetched as the premise for Assassin’s Creed but the core idea of the game is based around the idea of morphic resonance. This is nanners.

I’m sure a lot of people will be skeptical and critical of this but just remember that the pseudoscience of the last generation is the common sense of the current.

FBI investigating death threats against Feminist Frequency creator Sarkeesian

This is how powerful words and ideas are… it’s disgusting that people who don’t share her ideals are so polarized on this topic they have taken to threatening her life and the lives of her family. So there goes freedom of speech and equality in one fell swoop.

The sad thing is that these presumably male losers buy into the male hero archetype even though they lack the qualities to be that in real life…and instead turn into the hideous monsters and villains they originally set out to conquer.

I have to share my country with you assholes and fucktards so how about you take it down a notch before you ruin a hobby and community I have loved since I was a child.

Videogaming is hard when you have a 130 lb English mastiff in your lap. This is Malcolm our first rescue and we got him from Mastiff Rescue Oregon. Hard to believe that when my wife and I first got him he would lay in the same room but as far away as possible, used to run away if you grabbed a broom or shovel and you could see all of his ribs because he was barely 100lbs.
When we had to put our Cane Corso down this year I’m not sure we could have coped without with lovable oaf.

Started going full nerd with Destiny and started a clan. Pretty fun and even better when playing with friends while drinking a few pints or eating a couple of brownies that put me in a state of rucked up I never though imaginable. 

I ended up selling my 360 and all the games and stuff and actually got enough out of it to get Destiny, the expansion packs, sunset overdrive and beer so all in all it’s been a pretty good couple of days.

As we started developing the brand and aesthetics I started taking a look at our collateral: tap handles, labels, hats, shirts, signage, etc.

I was super excited with the direction the labels were heading as well as the can designs but you can see with the tap handles that the brand as a whole was not particularly cohesive and I think that is where part of my frustration was coming from.

Despite laying out how the brand should look and feel people kept trying to take us in a direction that might have looked cool but didn’t fit in line with the foundation we laid and we started fragmenting pieces. As a designer it started pissing me off…as a businessman I thought it was unacceptable and it was about this time I think I realized we were trying to make things work.

After we realized that the name Three Cheers didn’t really represent who we are we started looking at different names and came up with Quintus which is latin for five. In the first renditions we decided to move away from the more industrial look.

As the look started getting realized we wanted to create something that had a few different elements that could be re-purposed and used in different ways.

One of the biggest problems I faced was the same issue with the Three Cheers work was decision by committee and fitting ten pounds of shit into a 5 pound box. We tried to placate everyone’s wants and needs instead of letting me direct the design based on our mission and goals.

Ultimately I really liked the look of the more scripty Qunitus in black with brewery in gold and the roman numeral for five as the dot to the i with the companion Q and roman numeral as a supplemental graphic.

Unfortunately…or fortunately this brewery will never see the light of day. Personalities started clashing…partly because of what a clusterfuck the design process was but also because people were taking votes too personally when their ideas were selected.

It was odd considering how much time/money/effort we put into this to not move forward but ultimately it was a healthy personal decision and business decision to not continue forward with this brewery and team.

Sooooooo originally I was contracting design for some guys that were starting a brewery. I can’t find the first and second revisions but this is sort of what they settled on.
Eventually I got brought on as a partner to do their marketing as well and we brought on two more people which then led to a change. We liked that there were three of us and how that resonated with 3 Cheers but once we brought the other guys on board it seemed like it didn’t quite fit.
