Pantone Creates Minion Yellow. How About TARDIS Blue, or Red Shirt Red?

Pantone has released its first color in 3 years and they've labeled it Minion Yellow. It is bright and Minion-y and I very much approve of naming an official color after little yellow creatures bent on helping an evil overlord take over the world. It's a fantastically nerdy color, but what I want to know is why aren't there more nerd colors in the Pantone library?

Standard Baking Company in Portland, Maine is So Much Fresh-Baked Goodness

I just love freshly baked bread. It smells wonderful, looks wonderful, and tastes so much better than anything that’s been sitting on a grocery store shelf for days. We stop at bakeries everywhere we go and during a weekend trip to Maine, we found Standard Baking Company in Portland. Their selection of delicious breads and tantalizing pastries has me ready to make another road trip right now.

The NSA's Earth Day Mascot Is Terrifying

Today is Earth Day which means everyone takes an extra minute or two to consider how they treat the planet. Each year my daughter's school gets the classes outside to make everything all nice and pretty. This entails raking, picking up trash, and generally tidying up the schoolyard. Yes, I do wonder if it's just free labor to save the town a buck, but the kids love it. The NSA is getting in on the action too, but their mascot is the creepiest thing you'll see today.

Dear Once Upon a Time, Stop Trying to Make Villains Good

Once upon a time, there was a television series that took all the characters from your childhood storybooks and brought them into the real world. They were the exact same characters, but different because they'd forgotten who they were in the fairy tale world. The one thing that didn't change was that the good guys were still good and the villains were still horribly evil. Then one day, that all changed, too.
