As a company, you can pay for ads and hardly get noticed. You can sponsor a show and the host might mention you, but your (product) name might not stick. Wheat Thins (a product by Nabisco) presented a show they were sponsoring with a rather absurd memo. Stephen Colbert, the host of the show, explicitly informed his audience that it was an actual memo. Nabisco might have meant what they stated in...
No disrespect. No vaseline.
I love discovering music, whether it be recent or old. Next to discovering new tunes, it’s just as awesome to rediscover music that you haven’t heard in ages. Recently, NWA’s Chin Check and Ice Cube’s Hello popped up where I did not expect it, to be honest. This lead me back to another great track. It was the funniest diss I had ever heard when I first discovered the track on a Death Row...
I recently started tweeting in English more often, so I’ve been getting more followers from the UK and US. Today @KayKayBeats (aka Kate Luo) started following me. I am thankful she did. Not because I care about the amount of followers. Screw that. I am thankful, because otherwise I wouldn’t have discovered this great beat she made. Check out the video below. Her blog...
Y u no want bag?!
Have you noticed that shops dub us as their brand-advocates simply by handing out their branded bags? It dawned on me lately that each time I told the person behind the counter that I didn’t need one of their (store-branded) bags you could see the disappointment in their face. It’s like telling a five-year-old: “You call that a drawing? I am not hanging that up on my fridge. What do you think...
On the train ride home I hear a young woman asking in a high-pitched voice: “Are those (cup)cakes?” I look behind me and I see a young man decorating cupcakes. He couldn’t have answered with a more stereotypical gayish “Yes.” Then it hit me. CUPCAKES! Women lóve them. If they can get a near orgasmic reaction from a distance out of a complete stranger, imagine what...
You go girls!
When Vanessa Hudgens says she really likes a song, it probably doesn’t really mean much… She threw me off though, with the whole ‘I like The Black Keys’-thing. Then again, I should have known that a Disney starlet who took naked pictures of herself and got them leaked on the web might have poor judgment. ‘Rack City’ doesn’t sound like a lot of effort has...
Never forget to have fun
Being a fan of skate films, I really enjoyed watching this next one. It’s nearly 40 min. long, but definitely worth the watch. A group of skaters calling themselves the Marvs released a new video featuring 10 of their members. The film is called ‘Wait For It…’, which is what you need to do after the intro. After the first three minutes I thought it was over and Vimeo...
Girl, Chocolate and Skating
[This is a re-post from my Posterous] I never took the time to learn how to skate. I kept it safe and played THPS. ;-) I’ve always loved the culture and watching skaters performing their art. Earlier this week Bram.us shared a video as he rightly calls mesmerizing. Be sure to check it out. Today I came across the trailer of a to be released skate film from Girl Skateboards and Chocolate...
