Animated gapingvoid Yuletide Log

[We have another Holiday treat for you, which we sent out in yesterday’s newsletter:]

Ho Ho Hope you are having a great Holiday season so far!

Back in the day, in New York, before we moved our minds online, the cool background for the holidays was the “Yule Log” – an endless video reel of a crackling fireplace with a soundtrack of holiday music. One of the local NY TV stations would play this “Yule Log” for hours at at time so that you could turn on the television and tune in to a virtual fireplace to warm up your holiday living room (at least visually).

To help you get into the holiday spirit the gapingvoid team made a couple of our own “Yule Logs” as animated GIFs. We did two versions and you can download them FOR FREE at the links below. Share them with your friends and give the gift that keeps on giving (or at least the faux flames that keep on burning…)




Ho Ho Ho. Exactly.

Hugh MacLeod is a genius.  Genius.

His work acknowledges the absurdity of workaday life, while also encouraging employees to respond with passion, creativity, and non-conformity...   MacLeod’s work is undeniably an improvement over the office schlock of yore. At its best, it’s more honest, and more cognizant of the entrepreneurial psyche, while still retaining some idealism.

Last year my State of the College address was 76 slides loaded with data. This year it was 14 cartoons that were substantially more memorable.

"There are only two daily newsletters that I look forward to opening and reading every time they show up to my inbox: Seth Godin's and gapingvoid."

In moments of indecision I glance at the wall [to Hugh's work] for guidance.
