Pip and his Geeky Stuff

Continuing what I've been doing. Go visit GeekCubed.Tumblr.com for that site done the way I originally intended.

Job 2 has some real, non-financial value. (Taken with instagram)

I sat on this one for 3 years. I’ll miss that place and the awesome people I worked with. 

I know you know someone who loves the X-files. It is now your moral obligation to show this to them

They were really running out of ideas.

I love when crap like this happens.

This dog just wants to be forgiven.

I have part of a plan.

This shit right here pisses me off! I’m on a desktop and the captions on these gifs are too small to read. So I click on them, AND THEY STAY THE SAME SIZE!! WTF?!?! Can we stop posting these teeny tiny bullshit screen grab gifs?

Today is our birthday. We are entering the terrible twos. This year has been a whirlwind and we’ve realized that running a business is a marathon and a sprint all at the same time.

Two years ago, we sat down in our very small apartment and sent an email to everyone we knew (friends, ex-boyfriends moms, people we went to kindergarten with) and asked them to sign up for this new thing we had quit our jobs to start. We were very little on sleep but very big on adrenaline, drive, instinct, and hope.

Last year, we went out to dinner to mark our birthday. This year, we couldn’t all fit at the same table. We’re having three birthday parties — New York, Chicago, and LA. And are celebrating a very big year — big subscriber milestones, big team growth, and big plans. We’ve moved off the couch, hired our first employees, filled out our first RFP, gotten health insurance for our business, had Lena Dunham tweet about us, finished a fundraise, eaten a burger on the “Today” show, had too little desks for the first time, and enjoyed it all with a team! 

Things we learned this year:

- How to lease an office

- How to hire someone

- How to break up with someone

- The difference between an HMO and a PPO (still working on that a bit)

- When you need to be a CCorp vs. an LLC

- What to wear on camera so you don’t look bad (still accepting tips)

- How to work with an investor

- How to say No 

- How to prepare for a board meeting

- How to communicate with someone who codes

- How to make changes on the fly

- How to be managers (ongoing process)

- When to say ‘I need a break’

- When to give up trying to be good drivers and Uber

- How to make time to have lives (always a struggle)

- How you fit a couch into a room where the doorway isn’t big enough

- That building furniture is a great team bonding exercise

- How to celebrate 

When we look back on what we have started to build, it is twofold. It is a Voice and it is a Community. The enthusiasm for theSkimm Life and engagement generosity of our community is truly unprecedented.  It is because of all of you that we have come this far and on our birthday, we just want to say a very, very big THANK YOU. Now go eat some cake.

FREE SKETCHES!

I’ve had this project in mind for a while now, and there’s a few reasons I’m finally pulling the trigger on it today. For one thing, it’s my birthday, and I like to do nice things for folks on my birthday, so … free art, right? That seems nice.

The other reason is I’ve been sitting on this useless P.O.Box for a year now. When my dad died a while back, I was made the executor of his estate. I set up this box to handle all the necessary correspondence, and my trips to the post office were just the most depressing parts of my week - it was all bills, notices, legal documents, subscriptions I had to cancel, porn (my dad sure loved porn!), mail from his lawyers and accountants and such. All of these reminders twice or three times a week that my dad was dead, which kept making me miserable even months after he passed away.

That poor P.O.Box was just brimming with depressed negativity, I figure, and I wanted to do something positive to clean out all the bad juju before I gave it up and let some other poor sap have it. So now I’m inviting everyone from anywhere in the world to send a postcard to that address and get a free sketch in return! It’ll be a cleansing exercise … you know, for the post office box, y’see.

Feel free to share this post and spread it around!

I have a crap ton of old stamps, And access to a postcads to match, if you want a drawing from him, then send PM (FB, Twitter, text, email whatever) your address and I’ll get these mailed tomorrow (saturday). I only ask that you take a pic of the drawing and send it to me when you get it.

If women and minorities taking on major superhero character roles (while the main characters are still prominently featured and going on new journeys) is offensive to you: PLEASE JUST UNFOLLOW THIS BLOG. No need to reblog me just to complain about “political correctness” and “pandering” and both of them being “shoved down your throat.” Write your own post. I’m not interested in your note.

On the subject of Falcap, specifically: Were you whining when Bucky Barnes took over the job? Do you even read the comics? You loved Captain America: The Winter Soldier, though, right? So maybe there’s a reason why this particular change is getting under your skin. Sam Wilson will be the seventh person in Marvel Universe continuity to be called Captain America. And he’ll be awesome.

If you can’t like Captain America anymore because he’s black, there’s a word for that.
