"Need a Summer Job? Date a SUGAR DADDY."

Arrangementfinders.com have a billboard up in Los Angeles that was twice banned in Chicago. The billboard reads: "Need a Summer Job? Date a SUGAR DADDY." and depicts a cute blond girl touching up her makeup. I'm not sure how one lists sugar daddies on ones resumé, but perhaps this sort of internship is the fast track toward the stripper pole. The blond in the ad by the way, is none other than former porn star and Charlie Sheen “goddess” Bree Olson. The billboard is placed very near UCLA campus to attract young college-girls to the dating site, said Arrangementfinders marketing director AJ Perkins to ABCNews.com

Brazil has competing rock radio apps

Wow, it was barely an hour ago I was all excited about UL 89FM's Rock Snooze app, featuring the heavy metal guitar shredding of Andreas Kisser of Sepultura.

Now I come to find out 91 Rock, another rock radio station in Brazil, has a very similar idea. Instead of just using Adreas Kisser though, you can pick your playlists. And if you are a deep sleeper, as the case study says, the songs will get heavier.

Two very similar apps for rock radio stations in Brazil on the same day! It's a rock and roll miracle!

Tyler the Creator Mountain Dew Ad pulled for being racist.

I'm really surprised to hear that the third installment of Odd Future cherub Tyler the Creator was pulled.

Considering these ads are so amazing. Oh yes, in case you didn't know there is a part one and a part two. Amazingly, part one, in which the goat beats up a woman, didn't generate controversy. But the third part, the police line up, did.
