Just saw this on the NYTimes site at 3am on a Sunday. Usually they'll put up off-the-major-radar stuff around this hour and time of week before hitting the American pop-news circuit around 8am. Always good material. Best part of his highly conceptual work is the fact a lot of it is "more theoretical than practical, has no assigned purpose."
I wasn't sure I'd be too excited about this year's Democratic National Convention when it was first given to Denver a year or so ago, especially because I am and always will be an indepenendent (look at the blog name, bro) as are my parents. But this year as I fully support the democratic nominee for the 2008 presidency, I am so freakin tempted to fly to my hometown to witness his speech. The cover of his site today had a beautiful illustration of Mile High Stadium (ahem... Invesco Field at Mile High) with the Obama logo on the front of it, as he's chosen not to do it in the traditional venue of a convention center, but out in front of 75,000 people. 2009 keeps getting closer and closer so let's hope like he does.
When I heard the Bulls won the lottery for the #1 pick this year, a small glimmer of hope filled my heart. That glimmer has turned into a 6-foot-3, 196 Chicagoan named Derrick Rose. At Memphis, he shot .477 from the floor, .337 from behind the arc and .712 from the line and is only the 3rd guard in 30 years of the NBA draft to be picked #1.
I rarely post commercials on here, if ever, especially for an insurance company, but this one's gotta be in the top ten best commercials I've ever seen. Talk about branding... I not only want their umbrella, I may want their insurance and I don't even know what they do.
