A big thanks to Hot or Not Designs for including us in their list and to all those that voted us into the “Hot 20” designs. It looks like there is now 695+ sites submitted. It’s so cool to be included in a list that includes Apple, Blogger, Google, and Mercedes. Update: Okay, so we’re no longer in the top 20 but it was good to be there even if it was for a short time.
If you are an avid reader of Mudsugar, you may recall an article that we ran a while back about John Hodgman coming to town supporting his book, “The Areas of My Expertise.” Or, perhaps you were lucky enough to have attended the show. If neither of those rings a bell but the dude still looks familiar to you, that’s because the comic genius of his book has propelled him to a very quick celebrity status. He’s showing up everywhere including numerous appearances on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart and many other talk shows. He has also been the influence for the 700 hoboes revolution.
Well, now’s the time to buy stock in John Hodgman. Apple just launched some extremely hilarious ads (not so funny to PC lovers) featuring Hodgman as a “PC.” I’ll let the ads explain themselves. My favorite is “Virus.”
Well, sort of. As you can see we’re not quite finished. There’s going to be quite a bit of glitches and broken links that we’ll be tying up over the next few days. Thanks for your patience while we work.
Some of the new features we’ve added:
City Guide: Our Washington DC City Guide will be fully operational on Monday and will include information and links to our favorite music venues, clubs, bars, record stores, coffee shops, free wifi spots, and other independently owned business.
MP3 Blog: Our truly unique MP3 Blog will start on Monday and will offer Free downloads of our favorite recordings from our favorite artists, and stories about the songs as told by the artists themselves.
Photo Blog: Due to the great response we’ve had from the couple of photo-posts we’ve made in the past we have started our own Photo Blog. The staff of Mudsugar and guest photographers will be showing off their DC related photos and their related stories.
