Tuesday Dudesday: Books books books.

Physical Books … how old fashioned.
Being a steward of all things digital as I am it is a little weird that when it comes to books I really prefer the physical copy rather than the electronic version.
(Gasp)
I’m not sure what it is – maybe it’s because I stare at a computer screen for at least 8 hours in a day or maybe it’s nice to have something tangible in this world of digital relationships and text based conversations.
Too much?
Anyway there is this cool site I found a while ago called PaperBack Swap:
paperback_swap

PaperBack Swap allows you to post your books and trade other users for their books. How it works is you post your books and when someone wants it – you send it to them (pay the 2 dollars in postage) and they get your book. Once this transaction occurs you get a credit which allows you to request a book from a user and they in turn send it to you. I think when you first start you get one credit for free but I could be wrong.

I have used this service quite a few times and it is awesome for those who enjoy physical copies of books and don’t mind waiting a few days to receive them. Plus it’s basically free (minus postage).

They also have a CD Swap and a DVD Swap.

Check ’em out.

Tuesday Dudesday: Art of Manliness

Hi. My name is Jeremy and I’m a Google addict … there I said it.

Seriously I Google EVERYTHING. Anyway I was looking up how to stop wasting time on Facebook and actually get some work done (I tried to just not do it and that didn’t work) – Soooo my search brought me to an awesome article on an awesome site.

The site is called The Art of Manliness.

What’s it about you may ask?  Google it.  Just kidding.

“The Art of Manliness is authored by husband and wife team, Brett and Kate McKay… In our search to uncover the lost art of manliness, we’ll look to the past to find examples of manliness in action. We’ll analyze the lives of great men who knew what it meant to “man up” and hopefully learn from them. And we’ll talk about the skills, manners, and principles that every man should know.” (About page)

Tuesday Dudesday: Google Alerts.

Google Stuff Yourself? Who has time for that?

Is that phrase still going on? “I ain’t got time for that” – I don’t know. I don’t really keep up with the latest pop culture references but my Facebook friends sure do – thanks for keeping me in the loop guys – what would I do without you.

Anywho.

Google Alerts. Heard of em?

Well if you haven’t they are pretty sweeeeeeeeet.  They basically search the internet for whatever phrase you indicate and give you the latest back to your inbox. That might not seem that awesome but that’s because I haven’t show you what’s behind door number 3 …

Say I am a band and I want to know when my band is mentioned on the web o sphere.  I would just go to: http://www.google.com/alerts enter in my band name, fill out the other criteria (see above), and viola – alerts sent to my inbox containing any mentions about my band. You can even search a specific site for a phrase – like Craigslist for the term “photographer”.  You would use a query like this: “photography OR photographer site:http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/ OR site:http://washingtondc.craigslist.org/nva/”

Hope this can be useful for you!

PS for my narcissists out there you can also Google your own name to make an alert about yourself
