Veteran’s Day 2014

Newsletter for November 11, 2014

American FlagTake a moment to consider all the sacrifices veterans have made so the rest of us don’t have to truly worry about international threats. Through the years it has been American service men and women who have been willing to stand up and say “send me” when situations have been most crucial and when our citizens had their freedom and liberty threatened. It takes an exceptional type of bravery, beyond that which many of us possess, to put it all on the line and answer the call on behalf of their countrymen.

Beyond combat and defense, our service personnel are also sent around the world to provide disaster relief during the worst natural disasters as well as humanitarian efforts, such as the current mission fighting Ebola in Africa.

Happy Veteran’s Day and here’s to a peaceful and prosperous future for us all!

The Badlees

A Tribute to the Badlees

Tonight at Mauch Chunk Opera House in Jim Thorpe, PA will be the final performance by The Badlees of 2014 and, quite possibly, ever. After nearly a quarter century of musical excellence, dating back to 1990, the members of this Pennsylvania band are going their separate ways. Modern Rock Review has updated its career-spanning Profile of The Badlees, which offers 14 pages of stories, perspectives, images, videos, and related articles that talk about every important event from the group’s origins through the present day.

The Badlees have been a 33 Dimensions client since 2010, and we have implemented three distinctive design layouts at Badlees.com over that time period. Knowing each of the band members personally, I can also say that these are a great group of guys who have ridden the rock and roll roller-coaster from humble beginnings to national success and international tours, all while remaining personable and down-to-earth with their extremely loyal fan base. I wish them the best in their future endeavors.

Music and Freedom

Newsletter for July 4, 2014

The Declaration of Independence

The Genius of Jefferson’s Words

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness…”

As a writer and appreciator of great philosophy, I am constantly amazed by these three dozen words which lead off the Declaration of Independence. In this succinct passage written 238 years ago, Thomas Jefferson summed up the essence of freedom which has not been articulated so beautifully or accurately since.

Have a happy and safe 4th of July, everyone!

AjaIn keeping with our solid tradition of only naming dogs after Steely Dan songs from 1977, I’d like to introduce “Aja”, whom we adopted from the Harrisburg Humane Society this past Tuesday.

“Freedom Song”
Some lyrics from a brand new, yet-to-be-recorded song by Sinclair Soul © 2014

Let the people be free, let the people be free
Let them bend no more knees, let them crow no more pleas
Let them swing from no trees
Let them build their own home, let them roll their own stone
Let the people be free

When the people are free, all the people are free
They may rock or may breed, they may talk or may screed
But they’ll feed their own needs
They will decide on their own how to set their own tone
Let the people be free

May the people are free, all the people are free
Whether they draw from the seas or they sail on the breeze
Or they talk to the trees
The world is their zone the construct their own throne,
Let the people be free

Springtime

Newsletter for April 30, 2014

Springtime sceneThese Are Great Days for Web Design

As sure as these crazy April showers will soon bring the May flowers, there is good reason to be optimistic about the near future in the web design business. This may be the best time ever to be a web designer. Just consider this fact, in just a little over a decade, we’ve gone from 216 “web safe” colors to the over 16 million in the hexadecimal spectrum.

Beyond this, we also now have web-based fonts, transparency, blending, and mainstream animations along with ever-evolving tools and frameworks based on HTML5 and CSS3, which has just come of age within the past few years. What this all means is richer, more attractive, and better functioning websites at lower development and maintenance costs.

Thank you all for your support and we look forward to the future!
