saw this on vonbrandis’s photo stream and it brought barbie streisand alive in my mind singing that song ‘Memories’:
the OK bazaar reminds me of a simpler time:
Like that one time we stopped off in that small town
on the way to/from a holiday
We realized that towns in South Africa are not like the cities
Nobody is ‘deadline-driven’
Most people are ‘dop-system’ driven,
Hanging around on the pavements
Outside the OK Bazaars.
Long before Mr Price,
And a little before the glory-days of Game
(5 chocolates for the price of 2),
We could sit around on pavements, ‘dreaming of London’,
Buying Blush magazine, crème-soda and candied almonds
From the OK Bazaars.
You’d go there to get your new school shoes
And your pressed polyester school dress / shirt / shorts
They offered not only Tough-ees,
But also a cheaper alternative with nicer tear-drops
And thicker soles,
There, at the OK Bazaars.
Then along came Hyper-Rama
With their hey-days and their black-and-white knockouts,
Zany Charlie Chaplin vibes,
And then their hey-day would come back again,
And then there was Game,
So pink, so black,
And everybody just forgot
About the OK Bazaars.
this frikkin rad ghost towel. you can buy it here. don’t be afraid of shopping online, it’s all going to be okay.
the nintendo wii will buy you my unconditional loyalty for about 6 months. includes me picking up your phonecalls every single time you call. you can get it at Musica, Look & Listen, those types of places. If you’re looking to add2 months to that deal you can throw in a game (Wario Ware, Harry Potter).
a pair of these Ray Ban Wayfarers will get you a place on my facebook friends list, with at least 1 wall post a month that somehow glorifies me and makes you look cool. white frames also accepted.
any kind of artwork from kronk.
The world’s most expensive Christmas cocktail, called ‘The Flawless’ which comes at a mere £35,000 a glass from Modiva nightclub in London. Described as “warming and refreshing, but that is not the main reason for the exorbitant cost: at the bottom of the crystal glass is an 11-carat white diamond ring.”
Sounds good to me.
Next on the list is Pleo. See post above for more details.
To be continued.
every friday we get a half day off and every second friday we spend a few hours out of that half day discussing how can do our jobs better. one person has to give a talk / workshop, and last friday it was jason’s turn. he got us to play this Client-Agency game, which goes something like this:
you have 2 teams. in each team one person is a client, one person is the agency, and one person is the fairy godmother. the client has to perform a task (in this instance, blow up a balloon) but they are unable to use their arms – the Agency has to stand behind them and tell them what needs to be done. see exhibit A:
once they’ve performed the task, thefairy godmother, placed on the other side of the room,has to direct both blindfolded client and agency to where they are. then client-agency teamhas to pull the fairy godmother (identified as the person wearing the hat) back to their ‘office’, see exhibit B:
then the faiy godmother has to throw marshmellows at the client-agency team. first team to finish the marshmellows wins. please note that while this looks frivolous and just plain awesome it is the closest reinactment to life in advertising as it’s possible to get with a bunch of masks and balloons and is not to be taken lightly. then we got down to our meeting, presided over by well known and respected Ian Calvert (see below):
