I was flipping through the campus newspaper, The Daily Iowan this morning when I ran across a full page add from the Motion Picture Ass. of America. They’ve really been pumping their “education” lately with this ad and promos before movies. Personally, I like this parody poster by Trevor Haldenby a little better. Yesterday’s Boondocks… Read more »
Today’s Cool Site of the Day was actually kind of cool. It’s The Picture of Everything by Howard Halis. It probably doesn’t really have everything… but it sure has a lot!
I found Green Apple and Pink Grapefruit Mentos at a grocery store up the street (I’d been tipped off they were available). They had several displays, that said “available for a limited time only.” I’ll need to stock up. Maybe they’re just test marketing them. If that’s the case… EVERYONE GO BUY GRAPEFRUIT OR APPLE… Read more »
Flickr is a really cool service that does a million and one things with your photos. You can upload them and store them and trade them and chat with them and add them to a blog and look at other people’s and… and… It has a really slick flash interface. Flickr uses “tags” to categorize… Read more »
While looking for an Egon picture for the previous post I ran across another Ghostbusters site. If you look through the fan props area there are a ton of cool props! 9+ pages of proton packs! 3 pages of ghost traps Ecto Mobiles (yes… that’s their car) There are even plans for these items. So… Read more »
There is a nice looking proton pack for sale on eBay. I’ve seen this before on eBay. I don’t know if they didn’t sell it, or this is another one. Still, it’s pretty cool! After doing a little digging, it seems to be a different seller. The previous listing is still available at the builder’s… Read more »
I was looking around at some random stuff on the web and decided to take a look at rathergood.com. They’re the people who put together that weird Quizno’s commercial w/the singing hairballs. It was actually based on this movie, which I personally like better. They’ve also got some fun singing kittens, pandas and ????’s. I… Read more »
The branding firm, Landor and Associates, did an interesting survey, asking Bush supporters, Kerry supports, and undecided folks what product brands they associated with both of the candidates. They polled people in these categories: Coffee, Magazine, Technology, Car, Retail, Fast Food, Hotels, Beer. I don’t know if these findings will make you change your vote… Read more »

Apple introduced their new G5 iMac this morning. I think I like it better than the previous (iLamp) model. The design just looks cleaner to me. It has a widescreen 17″ or 20″ display and comes in two processor flavors (1.6GHz or 1.8GHz G5). You can find all the info you need at the Apple… Read more »
Shrek Cereal is some good stuff! It’s a bit like a combination of Lucky Charms and Kix (kinda like Kix w/marshmallows). I just am a little confused by the shapes. I think I’ve got them all down but one. 1.) Donkey 2.) Gingerbread Man 3.) Princess Fiona? 4.) Farquaad 5.) ???? 6.) Shrek So what… Read more »
