A Strange Morning

the bathroom walls
are the color of a German Shepherd
gray, white, dirty brown tiles
damp and cold
feet rest safe on an island of polyester
dog breath clouds the mirror
droplets roll down the walls
toilet paper sticks to itself
a dank smell mingles with lavender
perfume repelled and attracted
to the clean and unkempt

Agency Future

Just came back from an interesting presentation by Aaron Bateman (not related to Justine) exploring emerging business models in a changing advertising landscape. Aaron mentioned a few case studies, but one that stuck and struck was Converse Domaination, by Anomaly in NYC. Perhaps ad man Jon Bond, summarizes it best, Marketing in the future is like sex. Only the losers will have to pay for it.
Find out more about Agency Future here.

Real Like

Nation, a design studio held together with spit, sawdust and guts, created Facebook Like and Dislike stamps. I'm sure the little thumbs up will continue its insidious creep into the real world ;)

Unicorn tears & koala containers

The Museum of Unnatural History in D.C. features quirky and imaginative specimens designed by the talented Oliver Munday. (I'd like to eat some primordial soup and smell a unicorn burp). Lovely.

Super Mamika

French photographer Sacha Goldberger, formerly a creative director, turned his 91 year-old grandma into a superhero. Looking to cheer her up, Goldberg suggested they work together to create a unique persona, Super Mamika, and a series of beautifully art directed and irreverent photographs. Checkout Mamika's MySpace profile and over 2,000 friends. (The chicken sidekick photos on MySpace are also superb). Great project.

Swedish dance moves

A colleague sent me this Swedish dancing site with a winning recipe: catchy music, kitsch dancing and...your face. A perfect gift for hump day. Try it.

"Freddie is Dreaming",
"Matin is Dreaming",
"John is Dreaming"
