Bad Design Kills

A few years ago, Von Glitschka of, Glitshka Studios and a plethora of other sites on the web, quietly opened a unassuming little website which effectively took the design world by storm! Well kinda. The concept behind the site was simple, provide propaganda to aid in the graphic designer's fight against all things "bad design". As it happened, inexplicably the site went the way of the Dodo bird. Many speculate as to the reasons behind the website's peculiar and early demise. But until that particular book is written, you can quelch your BDK thirst and check out this link. It seems Von recently opened a Zazzle Shop to bring back his popular Bad Design Kills shirts. A great opportunity to get your hands on a mighty fine looking shirt.

I say....get 'em while you can. ;)

Tomorrow morning I'm going into surgery for a hernia that's been bothering me for a few years now.

My hernia is larger than normal, it's called an abdominal incisional hernia and has gradually gotten worse over the past few years. It's in the area I had an emergency appendectomy over ten years ago. Because my appendix had burst the doctor had to leave the wound open back then to drain properly and heal on it's own. The result of that is that the abdominal wall was never at full strength again.

I'm not asking for sympathy, just asking for prayers and positive thoughts tomorrow. For my wife especially as she's feeling a lot more anxiety over the whole ordeal than I am.

Thanks my friends.


Update: I'm home now, recovering from the surgery, which went well. Still not 100%, but getting better every day. Thanks to all of you for your concern, prayers and well-wishes. Much appreciated!
