facebook and i wear leotards... together

Who knows more about you than Facebook? Who monitors your activities, reads your personal messages, views your drunk photos, and shows you the ads for the products and services that you crave most?

I'm glad to see their behavioral targeting is paying off. They've really hit the nail on the head with me.

ducks back smith

Or vice versa? Either way Gordon Smith stole the University of Oregon's Nike created "Bellotti" font.

See more green and yellow.

sigur font

Sigur Rós gets their own font. Now if only I could understand Icelandic... or better yet Hopelandic.

Because it sounds like Iceland needs some of it right now.

i'm history

Perusing the names engraved on the bricks in Pioneer Courthouse Square, I found me.

Sort of.

And let's not forget some of my close friends.

good luck charm

Last night, strolling through downtown Portland, I found a good luck charm. My all-time, #1 best good luck charm find ever. One Icelandic króna.

Things are looking up for me... while on the other hand, Iceland's got some problems of its own.

good thing i haven't voted yet...

Because Chuck Norris just weighed in. My pendulum is swinging like CRAZY.

Thanks Chuck. Like you, I'm voting for a resolution to our "economic 9/11."

brand advocacy

Coke Is Most Talked About Brand in America. Why? Because Coca-Cola has brand advocates. I bet it's the most talked about brand in the world.

Word-of-mouth is the most powerful and effective form of advertising. Now, how do you generate that kinda buzz for your brand? Make people love you, and it starts with friendship.

Then they'll do the work for you.

rockin' the myspace

Ben Folds Five reunites to play "The Unauthorized Biography Of Reinhold Messner"... on MySpace.

MySpace has always been the key to reuniting lost bands. Who else can they peer pressure into a reunion concert with fake friend requests to bolster their shattered egos and loads sex spam to revitalize their withered labidos? My top 3 choices:

1. Hammer... reunited with his parachute pants, gold jewelry, and fly back-up dancers. And disunited with faith and religion.

2. Some ABC-Dexy's Midnight Runners-Fine Young Cannibals-A Flock of Seagulls-Toto-Men At Work combination/super-group. Each could play one hit.

3. Falco, while technically not a reunion AND this would also require resurrection, just take a look below at Exhibit A, seen at Munich's Oktoberfest, to know how alive and well Falco truly is. Notice he's been keeping it real in the shadows of the bumper cars alongside other non-Austrian living and deceased rap/hip-hop/R&B greats like Brandy, Biggie, Puffy, Tupac, and of course Lord Tariq & Peter Gunz. Deja Vu, Uptown baby.

Exhibit A:

thanks for the wait. we hope it's been worth it.

AKA I guess it's about damn f*$#@!* time. After way too many glitches, Flash and technology problems, laptops getting stolen, and general procrastination... it is finally Web 2.0 ready! What is it?!?

This. Together We Embrace Human Connection.

It only took almost a year to get this one figured out. And after such a long wait, I figured the least I could do was offer you a few choices.

Watch it here in YouTube HIGH QUALITY!!! But you gotta click the high quality link under the volume.

crystal rhino

Pepsi was ahead of its time in 1991.

PS When will someone pay me to write this kind of copy? Each type change costs extra 100 bucks. That's included in my fee. Didn't read the fine print, did ya?

dream job

Had me hooked from the first line "OCP, a leading international publisher of Catholic music and worship resources..."

Application already submitted. Fingers crossed, but I can always fall back on their available Inventory Control Analyst position.
