EARTH DAY - Is it me or... shouldn't it be everyday? You know, in a Teddy Roosevelt type of way? Like... conservation and stuff. Not just extreme left stuff or be grumpy about it like the far right... take back your cans, get the reuse bags... you know, the small stuff... Just a thought... oh, and another... you wanna know some guys who celebrate Earth Day everyday? Talk to a farmer.
EL CAMINO REPUBLICANS - So... we were the first to coin the phrase, "El Camino Republican"... and as wierd as it may seem, the QCI HQ has been getting some emails on what exactly an El Camino Republican is.... Methinks there might be a new feature around the corner... yeah... we may need to bust out a cool graphic for that... this should be fun. Thoughts? Let me know.
LET'S HANDOUT SOME HASHTAGS - So... if you are in to Twitter or follow it... you've seen this #... a hastag on a word. Basically, its the Twitter Community's way of archiving for searches and stuff... QCI-ders... feel free to use #goodjoboutofyou once in a while... so.. yeah, we're handing out a couple of hashtags to some peeps out in Waukee...
Waukee and Facebook Fan Page... you hear about this? For real? Wow.... so here's a couple of hashtag shout outs for this entire situation....
Isaiah McGee, the dude started a fan page for citizens to communicate... and God forbit, show some love to their town... great idea for one of the fastest growing communities in Iowa... #goodjoboutofyou
Waukee City Council... they voted to get rid of it... actually have the page deleted... really? Seriously? #epicfail
I could probably go on and on... with more hashtags for this... but sadly, there may be some on the Waukee City Council who might think I'm speaking Swedish or something.
CLICK HERE FOR THE PIC
I mean... the sign on the left is hilarious for obvious reasons... then there's the one on the right... it's like I got "Right Now" in my head... you remember that commercial? Holy 1992 Batman!
Probably not appropiate signs for the rally... but a hella good job out of those kids for a good laugh.
20% MORE IS GOOD - So... grabbed a bag of Chili Cheese Fritos at the store last night... you know... because that's how I roll. And noticed they give you 20% more chips. That's 20% more goodness. Good job out of YOU, Frito Lay.
HACKS... ALL GROWING UP? Whah? You ask? So yeah... a new cycle begins... and a whole group of hacks have moved on to bigger and better things. Are they growing up? What the hell? Yes they are... so, this brings the question... who will the new young guns be? There's some good prospects out there... and I'm sure every campaign will get its fair share of green college types... you know... mistakes will happen (not a bash... just saying, we'VE all been there)... so... any nominees QCI-ders? But keep 'er on the down low... no need to enflate their heads before they even get to swing a bat... we've seen that before.
ANYONE OUT THERE? Yeah, I'm talking to you. I know the lack of posting pisses off a lot of you... and some of you, are like... "yeah, shut up G$"... but really going through a new direction here... no, not like new banners... or no new graphics... but new stuff... email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know what stuff you like... what stuff sucks... I ain't scurd.
MULLET WATCH 2009 - Quick update on that. It's starting to come together... and looking bad ass... in case you were wondering. Will probably go high and tight later this fall... stay the hell tuned.
AND FINALLY... It's Friday... do yourself a favor... crank the volume on your computer speakers... and let this one rip...
TEA PARTIES - Yea... holy crap... that's a lot of people. Good job out of you kids out there... getting your right winger on. Although... I must admit... the QCI/junior high humor in me... was fighting against my better judgement.... you know.... tea bag jokes.... good thing is... (until now)... not so immature about it... haha... tea bags...
DUDE!!!! Cool show alert... dudes... Flava Flav and Public Enemy are coming to Des Moines... hell yes! "It's the Flava!!! It's the Flava!!! It's the Flava!!! It's the Flava!!! Life Sava!! Boyee!" HELL. FREAKING. YES.
LEGISLATURE - Can someone tell these guys (and gals) to just leave? For real doggs... the longer they are hear... the more damage they are doing. Do go... get! Move along! Move it!
TWEETDECK - It friggin rules... You all know, I'm all a twitter... its just good, ya know? Anyhow... tried Tweetdeck... and it is off the hizzy fo shizzy...
LENT - Holy crap! wait... can I even say that in the same sentence? Anyways.... man... I'm not gonna give up so much stuff... I can eat abnormal again.

Here's a few quick hits on New Kids On The Block in Des Moines yesterday...
- Nope, didn't go... but I don't think I've ever seen so many 30 something women, chugging Boone's Farm, tailgating with their mini vans and SUVs in the Event Center parking lot.
- Thousands of kids in Central Iowa had pizza last night.... because area Dads were in charge of dinner.
- Sources close to QCI say that woman to man ratio was 50-1... and most of the dudes were holding purses saying only 2 words... over and over, "Yes dear."
- It was reported that Wells Fargo Arena was a significant Cougar Event by the National Authorities.
- Last night, the boys over at at www.urbancougar.com reached defcon 1 levels at some points .
- QCI sources saw a homemade t-shirt that read, "Donnie, I'm Legal Now."
- Just about every girl in my high school class was there...
So yea... even though the New Kids... aren't exactly "new"... methinks these guys have a good racket going now...
