Stuck for ideas? Spin the "Wheel of Concept"

Thanks to wheel of concept I can piss off to the pub early, not only did it sort out what I should be doing for my next campaign, it even handed me a nice PDF chock-full of buzzwords that I can print out and impress people with. Really really gullable people.

Visual pun of the week: Hoovering Art Directors

We all know and love hovering Art Directors. Now there's Hoovering Art Directors! Tune in next week when the tumbr blog of time-sheets covering art directors shows up. "Worked on research for client X all Friday, was certainly not stoned in the factory gift shop for four hours."

The new and improved Copywriter Infographic. (sans typo)

It's Friday the 13th so it seems a good a time as any to giggle a little at George Ellis hilarious copywriter infographic that started the rounds on the web last week. The giggle-worthy twist here being that the word accessories was spelled with three s's until @lucalepori spoke up on Wednesday. While you're at George's site, check out his work for Shiner beer, that live band billboard idea is pretty nice. You can also follow him on twitter @thegeorgereport.

Microsoft + Skype = SkyNet?

By now you've heard of the high priced deal between Microsoft and Skype. You can consider how the Skype deal can pay off for Microsoft or look at it from the other angle and ponder how the Microsoft deal is good for Skype, or you can just be a silly little logo-geek with too many pop-culture movies references in your head and post the logos merged together. Skynet. Oh yeah.

Via @Coudal and thanks for giggling with us @LeslieBAP

Coal Cares! Free Inhalers for your child!

Coal Cares™ is a brand-new initiative from Peabody Energy says the website where you can find the Puff-Puff™ designer inhalers. Want Justin Bieber on yours? You got it - and if you order now you get a free pencil! The site also sports fun facts, like wind energy kills the poor little birdies. "Wind turbines can kill up to 70,000 birds per year, or 4.27 birds per turbine per year. Coal particulate pollution, on the other hand, kills fewer than 13,000 people per year.".

Sci-Fi Ikea Manuals - when will Ikea sell the TJARDIIS?

College Humor has created sci-fi Ikea manuals for the Dr Whos, time travelers and Jedis of the world. There's a manual for "LITSABBUR", "TJARDIIS" and of course the "DJILORRIAN". Get cracking now and you'll soon have at least two ways to go back to 1977 to buy Apple stock.

Can we get #advertisingbandnames to trend?

It's @strawberrycough's fault, as he went on a roll making up #advertisingbandnames last night, and we, of course, had to tag along. With so many creatives on twitter who have gotten wind of this hashtag by now, it's getting funnier by the minute. Join in.

Some examples from the massive hashtagflow:

April Fools: No we're not part of Starbucks Digital Network. But we even had them going.

GOTCHA! I've been playing all the news with a straight face today, and only one single piece of news was actually real, I'll leave it up to you to guess which one. The announcement that Adland joins the Starbucks Digital Network was not though. I honestly thought terrible coffee-stained background, a parodied starbucks mermaid and a misspelling of my own name, plus a Starbucks banner that leads to The Museum of Hoaxes were clues enough to set y'all straight, but apparently not.

Stephen Gillett, ( @stephengillett ) Business & Technology Leader CIO & EVP, Digital Ventures at Starbucks, drinks enough caffeine to keep track of who they're actually doing business with though, and saw right through it. He tweeted us

: @adland I would love to have you on our Digital Network, email me directly: [email protected] @adambrotman @starbucks

- and had me going for a split second there (damn, I need more coffee!) before I spotted the "yahright" in the email. Well played sir. LOLs were had, and in a few short hours, we'll be going back to the regular adland look.

P.S. My mom would like you all to know that I'm grounded forever. Apparently she had time to call half of the family with the news before I cracked. Sorry mom.

Diablo III releases Horadric Cube app for your smartphone or tablet device

Diable 3 releases the Horadric Cube app. With it you can open demonic portals to dimensions of nameless horror using your Horadric Cube. You can transform and recombine any number of other apps you drag into it. Translocation is coming soon, and full potential of the Horadric Cube app will be unlocked. Can't wait.

You know Clarke's third law: any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic. It is only logical, then, that sufficiently advanced magic would be indistinguishable from technology. For proof, look no further than the new Horadric Cube app for your smartphone or tablet device.

Hyper Island Kindergarten Opening 2012

Hyper Island, the world-leader in the field of education for interactive communication, business management and leadership, announced today it will open a kindergarten in 2012. The Hyper Island Kindergarten will aim to prepare children from the age of 5 for the later challenges of elementary school and beyond.

The Hyper Island Kindergarten will utilize the tried and tested Swedish training model for people in the interactive media, communications and advertising industries that has contributed to making Hyper Island a world- renowned education provider.
Johanna Frelin, Hyper Island’s CEO, says “We are thrilled that we can offer people an early start to their life long learning journey. It will be invaluable to the industry and its development that talent starts with the Hyper Island Way at an early age and also can choose to wrap up their education with our methodology as adults”.

The strong focus on collaboration, group-dynamics and learning-by-doing is the core of Hyper Island’s methodology and the kindergarten will follow this tradition. The Hyper Island Kindergarten will have a strong emphasis on the learning-by-failing aspect of Hyper Island’s methodology as research has proven it to be at the core of children’s personal development.
The Hyper Island Kindergarten will open in 2012 when Hyper Island will also expand its educational range into a high school. More information and the location will be announced later.
