Mashable and AdWeek are running the announcement that the 10/5 issue of EW will feature an ad for the CW which will include a small LCD screen running live (monitored) Tweets as well as video clips. Kinda interested to see how it plays out - its the most interesting thing the CW or EW have done in a long time!
Check out The American Made Awards at Martha Stewart - established as a celebration of creative small businesses, but ultimately honoring those who follow their dreams. Today’s “Maker’s of the Day” are Brooklyn’s Enormous Champion, a couple-owned shop specializing in stationery and gifts. Take the time to check out their Sailing Knot collection as well as their tea towels - can’t get enough of either (also have a handy addiction to their wooden squirrels!!). It’s all good stuff!
Iconic, groundbreaking marketing, Americana. Happy Birthday Coke!

Gorgeous video of skaters reclaiming the cracked and destroyed terrain of Christchurch NZ after the Feb earthquake. Touching, exhilarating and a testament to the unshakable nature of humanity.
I have a well-documented LOVE of mayonnaise. I nearly lost my best friend at the age of 7 because of it (she swears to this day she was allergic until she turned 8. Yet she still won’t eat it), my husband actually threatened to “TURN THIS CAR AROUND” on a roadtrip because I wouldn’t stop talking about it, and my father-in-law has walked out of the room in disgust while I made a sandwich dressed with Delouis Fils. Enter Empire Mayo. As one friend noted, it’s time to get in on the ground floor of mayo, ‘cuz that shit is trending. And for good reason, it’s DELICIOUS! EO Opened this Sunday at the Williamsburg branch of the Brooklyn Flea, and despite gale force winds and the unseasonable ccccccccold, they sold out of all seven flavors half-way through the day! The clear winners were smoked paprika, Lemon EVOO (my favorite), lime pickle and black olive. Sprouted like a tumor from the brain of Elizabeth Valleau and under the mad-scientist influence of Sam Mason (late of Tailor), it’s a supremely beautiful and entirely tasty indulgence. The coda here would be that my guy, the one who was going to pull over to the side of the road and send me walking, is now a convert and even purchased his OWN jar (the last of the smoked paprika!!) Please catch them every Sunday (until Nov.!) and you’ll totally be a believer!
Song 4. Man—could not WAIT for this record to come out! I remember picking it up at Sound Exchange in Wayne NJ on Xmas break, freshman year of college. Just close your eyes (no pun intended!) and turn it up SUPER loud. Jangly guitars, plaintive vocals and those drums. Jeez louise. Then there are the lyrics. Enough.
