'9/11' Producer signs to DDA

While "Fahrenheit 9/11" continues to break all records as the
hottest documentary ever. Its producer, Jim Czarnecki, has joined Dattner Dispoto and Associates (DDA) for representation by its newest division managed by Richard Caleel. Longtime collaborator of Michael Moore, Czarnecki's credits have already earned him Oscar and Emmy awards, the Palm d'Or, and now a mind-blowing $21.6 million weekend gross for "9/11", a record-breaking opening for a documentary.

Would you like a bike that writes out messages as you cruise down the street? I know I would. A Parsons student named Joshua Kinberg takes his bike on a Maiden Voyage spelling out "I love New York".


Yahoo in the UK points things out

Paypal will not be back.

OK, after testing, changing, testing testing and testing again I can now report that the Paypal payment system only upgrades about 50% of the payees, and there is no improvement. The problem is that only 50% of paypal mails "yes this user paid" are ever sent out, and that's something Paypal only - not me - can fix. I'm throwing in the towel on that now, as paypal is rather (read extremly) nasty to deal with anyway and such dismal numbers are unacceptable. The Secure Credit Card system is considerably faster and works 100% of the time so we might as well just keep that.
On another note, June is almost up and that means there will soon be a new guest writer at Coudal.com where I've been dropping links the past month. Pay them a visit, the links are mmm-mmm-goood, and their photoshop tennis games are great friday fun!


Nanner Ads - Garfield The Movie on bananas

Last weekend while doing routine grocery shopping, I stopped to get some bananas in the produce aisle. All over the bananas were stickers for Garfield: The Movie. Being an adgrunt, I took one of each version and placed them on my nanners.
This is nothing new. The Milk Board was putting "Got Milk" stickers on bananas years ago. But it seems a bit odd to put ads for this movie on the banana peels. My first thought was that they were trying to target the kids who might have banana in or with their morning cereal. But then the more I thought about it, it's really targeting the parents more, since most kids get the banana already peeled, especially if it's going in their cereal.


Cows painted with ads, become moo-ving billboards.

On the side of a herd of Norweigan cows it reads BULA, an american clothing brand. It may look like an ad agency took a "brandalism" page from Banksy, who's painted both pigs and cows, but the Norweigan cows aren't just hanging around chewing grass like walking works of art in the country, they have been painted to be the stars of an upcoming Bula commercial.

update 2005: More moo-ving billboards
