Spiffy $.99 Domain Deal with Godaddy

So I just picked up ErikPersson.org for $.99 thanks to this pretty sweet GoDaddy.com promo. Check out the copy below

A 1-year domain name registration for only 99 cents with coupon code BUYCOM99. This is valid for new domain registrations and transfers from other registars only, and not renewals of domains already at GoDaddy.

Register or transfer any available .COM, .US, .MOBI, .BIZ, .NET, .ORG, .CA, .CO.UK and .IN domain for just $0.99!*

Limited to one order per customer, expiring after 7,500 redemptions or on December 29, 2009 (whichever comes first).

So get cracking since at best theres only 7499 left.

And yes technically it was a buck seventeen with tax.

Wolverine Heritage Collection Boots Look Rather Spiffy

I’m liking the look of Wolverine’s new Fall line of shoes. Funny thing is they’re actually their old line of shoes. About 125 years old. They pulled a bunch of designs from the archives and are making then anew. They look pretty spiffy and are all leather among other things. Probably doesn’t help that I have a thing for the red leather and the photos are so shiny looking. Anywho check the link at the end for more shiny boot pictures and a bunch of other interesting Americana related posts

U.S. AQUA PURE DRINKING WATER

I found this U.S. AQUA water can in an antique shop in Poulsbo, Washington. On the side it talks about how it’s “IMPERVIOUS TO NUCLEAR FALLOUT” and cheap insurance. This convinced me that I had to buy it.

Then it sat on my desk for a month and a half. Besides providing life sustaining water in case of political destabilization due to the Nuclear Armageddon that we all know is coming in the near future, it also makes an awesome paper weight.

I haven’t been able to find anything about U.S. Aqua or it’s fallout impervious canned water on the internets, (other than some long dead eBay links that won’t even show the seller or the specific auction even) so this is my original content contribution. Heres the complete text from the side of the can. Below that you’ll find a gallery with a bunch more images of said water can.

This photo is also part of a project called “Geographic Composition“. A bunch of photographers in different geographic locations ranging from Seattle to Sweden are given a theme then we submit pictures of said theme a week later. The first theme is “Beginnings”, and this was my contribution. You can find everyone else’s submissions here.
