Not acne related, but it was so much fun. It was part of a flash mob put on by Flash Mob America, a group that puts on flash mobs all across the country. This particular mob was sponsored by Urthecast, which takes HD video of the earth from space. They had a helicopter and a film crew there filming everything. Have a look if you want!
Orders for Acne.org products have remained strong and I was able to give another $2000 to Power Over Prejudice, an organization that helps middle school students dispell stereotypes and celebrate diversity. I gave them $2000 last year as well. May the world keep getting better and better!
Hilarity. A member of the boards contacted me a few months ago because he had bought one day of “shirt wearing” at IwearYourShirt.com, a web site where a couple of guys sell the privilige of wearing your company logo for a day. The member offered the day to Acne.org, and after looking at the website, I gladly accepted the offer. He asked for a Regimen kit in return, which I sent out to him.
If you’re in the Jacksonville, FL, or Los Angeles, CA area you might see these guys. I think it’s a great idea, and I love being part of home grown stuff like this 🙂
I’m working on seeing if there’s an automated way I can let you guys order a t-shirt/hoodie/sweatshirt from somewhere. I’ll let you know if I find a good option.
It’s been another awesome year. You’ve all contributed a ton to the site with your reviews, blogs, galleries, forum posts, success stories, and emails. Even those of you who just come to hang out and read, I want to thank you for being here and becoming more educated so that you can spread the word amongst your family and friends should the time arise.
I have a sneaking suspicion that 2010 is going to be even more exciting. The scientific community is producing some very interesting research into acne. I’ll share it all with you as I discover it myself. In the meantime, I hope you have a joyous holiday and enjoy the love that surrounds you.
I put up a page about visualizing clear skin a few months ago and asked for some feedback from you guys on whether or not it worked for you. You responded with some comments which are now on the visualization and acne page. I know trying this stuff can be a stretch, but if the mind and body really are one, which when you think about it…they really are to some extent…then perhaps it’s worth a shot. I personally enjoy and employ the whole concept of visualizing what I want to create, and it seems to work well in most areas of my life. Medical conditions are one area where I’m a little less convinced, but I remain open. If you decide to try this, please keep submitting your comments on the visualization page.
There’s a paint-your-own-pottery store in my neighborhood called Terra Mia, and we go down there from time to time just to have fun. Well, guess who got design of the week!? Truth be told, I kinda asked the owner if I could be design of the week. I know, that’s totally cheating. Oh well. I still got it! 🙂 Here’s my bowl:
