Book Cover Illustration Idea


Comments (73)


Yeah, next time your at the home improvement center, or auto parts store; notice how many guys have bandages.


I have several things to say this evening/morning:

(1) Cool cover.

(2) GF: it says "Self Help", not "DIY" (just funnin').

(3) Most people view "self help" as "how to change the behavior of everyone else."

(4) I caught the rerun tonight of Glenn Beck's address at CPAC (& Newt's, & Coulter's). Given that we're experiencing a charismatic "ambitious booby" in the White House now, I think Newt could actually stand a chance of becoming president. I've never thought he had the charisma to pull it off, but America is already burnt out on Obama's brand of charisma--by the time 2012 gets here...

(5) The moment I checked in to John's page & saw this illustration, a pretty darned good definition of "a progressive" popped in my head:

Progressive:(n) A myopic cyclops with an eye in the back of its head.

Think about it.

Dr. Bob:

John - the cover looks like my son hitting it out of a sandtrap when he was in elementary school.

Terwiliger - love your comments.

For what it's worth - many times when I have worked on a DIY project, I have found myself needing a self help book - it's much cheaper than a padded cell.


Thanks, Dr. Bob.

I must say that I enjoy reading 95% + of what's written here--a small handful of regular & semi-regular posters, & both fun & pointed content that isn't overrun by a cacophony of idjits.

Thanks to John & all posters (apammers excepted)... even Minimus.

Outstanding! Ahmadinejad did us a big favor! Each of us frantically delude our self into considering he (and others who applaud him) are fit to get treated as reasonable people, he spits in our face to remind us that individuals are (once again) fooling our own selves.

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

Amazing freakin blog here. I almost cried while reading it!

Thanks for all the info, your blog is extremely helpful.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

Ok ive made my decision, im subscribing, this is awesome, keep it comin.
