Ahh, that was a nice, relaxing Thanksgiv– AUGH. It’s Black Friday! Time to go batshit bananas over stuff!
If you want to own the first ten years of Ctrl+Alt+Del in a gorgeous, hardcover, 3-volume boxed set, we’ve got that on sale this weekend over here. This is the cheapest the set has ever been offered. The sale also applies to the copies we have in Australia, though we don’t have many of those left, so act fast!
(PS: If you only want a digital copy of the books, the DVD set has higher res PDFs than the downloads, AND comes with extras like the Ctrl+Alt+Del Animated Series.)
As I mentioned earlier in the week, our friends over at SUMO are in on the action too, and if you use the code blackfriday you’ll get 25% off your order. I suppose at this point I don’t really need to tell you that I enjoy the chairs SUMO offers; I’ve had a lot of them over the years and they’ve always been big supporters of the website.
Whenever I bring them up, I tend to get questions from people asking which chair they should buy. That’s a tough call, because there are some good ones, and some good variety that makes certain chairs better for certain things. But there are a couple of things I’m sure of:
- Buy as big a chair as your budget and space allows. Nobody has ever gotten a beanbag chair and said “I wish this was smaller.”
- Stay away from the microsuede. Okay, that one is just my personal preference, but I did not like the way it collected dirt/dust, and it didn’t feel like it breathed well when it was warmer.
Otherwise, it’s pretty hard to go wrong with a high-end beanbag chair. I will say, to follow up on my last review, we got a lot of enjoyment out of the Flex we had this summer. It was one of the least “chair-like” shapes I’ve seen, but it was really, really comfortable in practice.
