Admit it: you missed me posting these little video games. Try this wonderful Flash version of the original Super Mario Bros., complete with the little music that will probably play too loud on your speakers - instantly alerting any authority/cute girls at your office, which will probably come running and take down (or participate in) your procrastination/marketing research/creative inspiration.



Flash Games

Funky, powerfully explicit and vibrant colors, images filled with life and almost vibrating elements, social statements and opinionated imagery - sometimes just feelings, sometimes more figurative - and masterpieces you could see gracing the inside of any self-respecting bar in Shibuya, Tokyo - this describes (in surface) the art of Drew Flaherty.



Drew points to this link in his F.A.Q. : Lucid Dreaming - this state of dreaming while knowing you are dreaming - which I found to be most interesting. I take it he inspires himself from lucid dreams (funny, because I had one last night...crazy how we are all connected somehow) to create his highly expressive art - and it truly pays off. I like how he mingles with different media, and how his creations are easy on the eyes, and absorb you inside different little universes.

Drew is available for hire, and he sure is a name I'll keep in my little black book. Check out Drew's website here.

Daily Color Scheme proposes just what the title says: A Daily Color Scheme. You can bookmark the scheme, and also consult the past scheme archive. This might seem unoriginal to most, but to me, it's not. That's how I stay krispy.

Stuff You Don't Want To See 1

Skip this post. Don't say I didn't warn you. It's highly annoying. I'm just posting this because I Stumbled it earlier, and I thought I would relieve my much irritated psyche by sharing this absurdity with you, the unwilling world.

And unwilling as you are, you know you will click this link, because you just HAVE to SEE.

Curiosity is not a human feature, it's a funny experiment created by God.

Microsoft Zune (0)

Most respectable commercial for Microsoft Zune, Bill Gates' answer to Apple's iPod series. The Zune series will be new "it" thing in terms of stealing what's left of your social life - becoming your new "digital lifestyle companion".

Besides the initial Zune mp3/video player, we might be plagued with a microsoft portable gaming console (kind of a portable Xbox), a cellphone, a system resembling Itunes that will actually ease your transition from iTunes to Zune, and proprietary software. The whole Zune system will be made to be a complete, vertically-integrated solution, and not a iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Mini, iPod This and that, iTunes, and iStore multiple combo scheme - which might actually make you feel like you have value for your dollar. Coming soon.



I hate Apple. I hate Windows. SONY, HELP ME!!! Just kidding.

Hot Wheels (0)

From Ogilvy & Mather Costa Rica . While I salute the cool executions and how they never show the trademark cars themselves, I'm wondering how these ads will even interest kids anymore. But it might be truly naive of me to believe that only kids play with Hot Wheels these days, or Barbie dolls, for that matter... (Thanks, Brief blog!)

The Quebec Milk Producers Federation (FPLQ) presents three new :45 seconds spots in its longlasting campaign "Un verre de lait c'est bien, mais deux, c'est mieux" ("one glass of milk is good, but two, better"), apparently a new format for the announcer, registers Infopresse. While the execution can be strongly linked to the campaign visually, I fear that BBDO Montreal fell into a pit of rather expected and tacky storytelling, trying to reach for our little hearties.

I liked where the old lady's spot was going, but then it all ends in a less-than-original stint (I'm not telling you, I'm leaving it up to you to be umm, surprised - for lack of a better word (but disappointed might do fine)), The two other spots are just badly directed, feature boring and unoriginal stories, and clearly look like bad movie theaters-to-TV adaptations.

Music is also ordinary. I liked it more when Studio Apollo did the score.

In conclusion: blah. Sorry guys, this campaign's a miss. Milk always had something aspirational about it, and a touch of imagination, original or absurd - people don't want to be told another bunch of "reality stories". (Thanks, Infopresse)

Simple and inspired guerilla campaign for this rock n' roll radio station in Oslo. Two stickers on a rock and BAM! It's becomes a speaker. Powerful. (Thanks, Marketing Alternatif!)




Ah, ah, ah, rock-solid. Ahem. Sorry about that.
