Travis Smith: my resume, bio and photos back to the main blog page
Tracker Pixel for Entry

Today, I woke up with a new employee in my house.

Matt Gardner, Susie’s brother, has joined us at Hop Studios.  He’s going to be a great addition to the company, I can already tell.  For instance, he brought a Nintendo Game Cube with him.

He’s in our house for about a month, to be trained and set up and to find out about all our current projects and so forth.  He’ll meet some of the folks in our industry, too, and some of our other contractors like Mike and James.

Matt has a Masters degree in Graphic Design, and a Web site that should have a blog, but doesn’t.  Cut him some slack, it’s Day 1.  He’ll have a Web site by Day 3, I’m sure.

What’s a Busy Weekend?


“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?







Have you told Matt his new work nickname yet?

And...holy crap! He and Susie look so much alike.

Matt has a nickname that's not Poo-Head? Why didn't someone tell me?!
