Best Spam Ever.

Hello Dear,

Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out and endures through every circumstance.

Thank you, inbox, for the nice surprise : )

New Trend: Musicians making Short Films

Generally, if something happens more than once I assume it is a trend. Suddenly “everyone” is doing it and it doesn’t even take 3 people haha.

Right now, everyone in the music industry is making short films. Kinda interesting. I’m glad they are bring attention to this medium, however, as one of the people in the videos above pointed out to me (guess who? BEST DAY EVER), “I’m a musician, not an actor.” I guess sometimes skills such as acting and skills such as being able to reach a large audience hold different value. If those videos featured random local actors I doubt they would have the thousands of views they have acquired… and then I would have seen them : )

Adbusters Digital Detox Week

I’ve just learned that Adbusters Digital Detox Week runs from April 19th to 25th, 2010. I’m not sure if I will participate yet (or what form that participation may take) but i’ve noticed these technological rebellions are trending. It’s a little ironic that they have all spread via the internet but a few recent examples that I recall include:

I really admire Adbusters for their clever campaigns and novel way of thinking but this campaign (like others) is quite vague and I am not sure exactly what they are encouraging people to do. Maybe they want folks to get creative ; )
