Welcome to our Brand Spankin’ New Blogsite!!

That’s right! It’s a blog. It’s a website. It’s a blogsite!! And it’s been over three months in the making….or 27 years depending on when you start counting. :)

First and foremost, we just want to give a HUGE shout out and a GREAT BIG bear hug thank you to Brock & Dave over at Infinet Design for totally rockin’ our world! These guys are Ahhhhh-MAZING. A+++ plus plus plus plus plus PLUS! Seriously, we would give them such brilliant creative direction like “I dunno…could this somehow look…y’know cooler?” And they would just knock our cotton socks off everytime! They are both just such awesome guys and their customer service is CRAZY good! Honestly, even if I could round up all the gold stars from all the elementary school teachers in the WORLD it wouldn’t be enough for these guys! We love them!!!

We also wanna give a GINORMOUS thank you to our beautiful friend Shyla for training all the way down from Boston to totally rock out our header pictures and video. And also for just being such a great support through this past week and being as excited about this as we are! You bless us more than you’ll ever know!

Ok, so feel free to look around! There’s TONS to see. The header has seven rotating video clips paired with seven rotating pictures…so don’t leave until you’ve seen all 49 combinations of that. :) Make sure you check out our super fun new galleries and our new video on the “about J&M” page. And definitely, definitely, definitely don’t miss the “Stuff We Love” page. This is a page filled with…you guessed it, stuff we love! You can hover over each icon to see what it is and also click on it to link to its website. We’ll be constantly updating this with the latest movies, music, television, and simple things in life that we’re loving right now. So keep checking back!

Finally, if you’re a potential client who wants to get in touch with us, just check out the “info box” section for clients at the top of the page. That’ll get you all set up!

***But now we need your help to start spreadin’ the word about our new home on the internet!! So here’s the deal… Go and blog about our new launch with a link back to us (or if you’re a client and don’t have a blog, just tell somebody else!) and then leave a message in the comment box below telling us you did, and we’ll be picking some lucky winners at random to win some fatty B&H or iTunes gift cards!! So get blogging!

    Whoa. I am floored! I can’t wait to explore all the nooks and crannies! This baby is spectacular! Congrats!

  50. Ryan Rowell

    Once I got over the jelousy factor of my initial impression, and the design being so damn close to what I was designing for my own site. I stopped and thought, wow, you guys did this right, and the execution is wonderful. I would say this site wraps up the two of you in a nice bow, but there is only ribbon no bow here. :) all the best guys. I am off to revamp my ideas now.

  51. Wayne Toshikazu

    Love it, guys. Waaaaaaaay awesome job!

  52. Brian Khang

    Nice blog guys.. fancy fancy. Congrats and keep the good times rollin’!

  54. Mary

    Hey Bill!! Omigosh! Thanks for stopping by!

  55. Natalie & Chris

    Whoopsie, late to work today and you know what? I totally blame you both! Here’s the deal-e-o, I’m just doing my thang this morning, putting "my face" on for work…when Chris starts scoping out the new site in the background and when I see all this fun and flashy stuff going on in the mirror I became totally distracted and duh…useless! What, something new & shiny?! Admitedly yesterday we scoped it out too – & Chris quickly became side-tracked himself playing one of the linked games! =) What can I say, you guys (& your super cool blogsite) are addictive! Love it! Can’t wait to explore more of it. Work Shmork, I’m still on honeymoon mode! SMOOCHES!!

  56. erich camping

  60. Erin Harvey

    Ohmygosh, I LOVE all of this! I totally got a kick out of the "Stuff we love"… some of those things are so random, and random is totally my thing! =) Is that a wig??

  61. Mary Marantz

    hmmm….do you mean the Michael Myers mask? It’s from the movie Halloween!! You can hover over all of them to see what they are and then if you click on them they’ll link to its website. pretty cool, right?! :)
