As a guy who runs a car blog, I love this.
Messing around with a redesign of the current, ubiquitous USPS delivery van. The van in use has a very angular, sixties-looking design and I wanted something a little more rounded and charming. I imagine it as being electric, with the batteries being under the floor in the center and driving the front wheels. Of course, there’d be enough space in the front for a small, gasoline-powered engine because the electric version wouldn’t be very practical for rural locations or very long postal routes.
I also did a slight rework of the USPS logo, mostly making it circular and changing the color to a lighter blue.
Finally, I’d like to take a moment to thank all the people in the postal service for the amazingly hard work that they do on a regular basis. So many people in our government (they know who they are) have been giving the USPS a shit time and making it extremely difficult for them to operate in a successful manner and I find that to be a damn shame, especially considering how we used to hold to postal service in a kind of national reverence in the past.
And for those who want to get rid of the USPS, it is in the Constitution. You should read it sometime.

This is a remix of the song that was stuck in my head this morning. I had no idea there was a video or a remix. Go figure.
I want nothing more than to not work in a school of any kind anymore. But I sure wish I worked at this kid’s school.
"They say that you’re supposed to stand up to bullies, but there’s not much you can do when the whole class is like that."
“Why do they make fun of you?”
“Let’s see. My weight, obviously. The fact that I read for fun. Mostly sci-fi and fantasy. I watch Nova. I don’t like sports. You know those loud, obnoxious kids you see hanging out in groups, screaming at people? That’s my whole school.”
“So what do they do to you?”
“Just yell at me and throw stuff at me. But I am proud of one thing. Most kids who get picked on completely spaz out at some point, and get violent. That hasn’t happened to me yet.”
