I have been flooded with work this past week, and haven’t found anytime to write anything of importance, instead I found some good reading elsewhere. Please excuse the rather lazy post, but I hope the links below provide you with some entertainment. Hey it is friday after all.
I can’t believe I haven’t found this site before. PSDTuts is FreelanceSwitch‘s sister site and brings you some quality photoshop tutorials, presented beautifully.

I can’t stand Harry Potter but this video is pretty funny, probably because I appreciate the ending so much.
