Heineken: Freestyle Open

From March 24 starting at 2, until march 25th at 4 (Finnish time) Basso Open by Heineken will melt your face off with music. And part of that festival will include a "you choose it, we rap it," freestyle with a slew of artists.

It's all going down in Jyväskylä, which is a smallish city north of Helsinki. This event is sponsored by the beer (Heiney) , and the radio station (Basso) and brought to you by my favorite Finnish creative shop 358 Helsinki.

I can't make it but from the looks of it, I can tune in from anywhere, at least. Which is awesome.

Stockholm is your canvas

M&C Saatchi created a iPhone app with help from Sparkling Zoo and It's Showtime for Stockholm Art Week. That event is running now till February 17.

Now everyone in Stockholm can join make some art. The app captures movements in Stockholm using GPS and transfers this info to an artist who’ll paint the movements on a real canvas.

I'm thinking more than a few artists will be creating art from a lot of GPS points at the systembolaget.

That's a Swedish joke.

Never mind.

Keeping the magazine alive

An article in this week's Financial Times is describing the uphill battle single copy magazines are having at the supermarket. Seems no one is browsing at the check-out line but instead, whipping out their mobiles.

In the article David Carey President of Hearst Magazines said "Everyone that has products at checkouts has to battle for consumer attention."

And while some magazine publishers are now launching mobile efforts with promotional tie-ins, they're just not working that well.
And while the Financial Times points out this is a larger issue with all things in the check-out line (gum and candy, too) they don't neglect the biggest reason of all, at least in the states: the economy.

By now every tax payer in America realized we didn't just tax the rich. The restored payroll tax has eaten into the pockets of everybody. Those with the least amount of dosh are thinking twice about where they're spending it. That five or six dollar issue of Cosmo no longer seems worth it.
