Day 275: [SUPER BELATED 7 of 7] Canada Dry is the greatest drink ever.

17 Mar

I’ve become addicted to ginger ale. It’s my favorite type of soda. Which just says all sorts of sad things about myself.

But regardless, I wish I could sing sweet harmonies to my lovely Canada Dry because it’s just so lovely.

So, instead, I will post the greatest video to go along with my great Canada Dry. I will love you forever.

This is how I feel when I drink it. Yeah. Be jealous

Day 47: Her Morning Elegance by Oren Lavie

6 Jul

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Before I get to the actual content of this blog post, I’ve got a couple of things to point out!

First things first, I found out that WordPress.com made “Life As We Don’t Know It” the featured blog under the tag “optimism”! I appreciate all the support I’ve been getting for these past months and stuff. It’s been really neat seeing what people think of my project, and I’m glad you guys feel the same way! Check out the page here!

Second, I said in my blogpost yesterday that I’d mention more information about URBAN CRAFT UPRISING, so here it is

  • This saturday and sunday (July 10th & 11th) at the Seattle Center Exhibition Hall
  • Free admission!
  • Come look at neat projects from cool indie artists from around the nation (including Schmancy, Cake Spy, Figs & Ginger, Monkey Sock Monkey, Ugly Baby, go robot!, and many many more!)
  • Raffle, prizes, craft demos, and much more!

Come check it out! Also, I’ll be volunteering on the Saturday from 8:00am to 1:00pm! Come say hi to me!

You can check out the Urban Craft Uprising website by clicking on the picture right underneath this.

Finally, I present you with my daily dose of optimism. Now, if you like TV and you watch it a lot, I’m guessing you’ve probably seen all those “Kindle” commercials… the ones where the girls are doing things all while laying on sheets.

They’re stop motion animated, and they feature clothing and other laundry day props to tell the story of a girl with the “Kindle”.

This is not the first example of great, laundry-stop-motion… in fact, many speculate that the “Kindle” ads are directly inspired by a beautiful music video by Oren Lavie for a song called “Her Morning Elegance”

The video is accompanied by a gorgeous song, and it always puts a smile on my face. So enjoy “Her Morning Elegance” by Oren Lavie

Day 43: Old Spice Commercials

2 Jul

Hello there! If this is your first time on the site, be sure to check out the about page at the top for more info on my project! Also, sign the guestbook (also located in the top)!

Today has been a lazy day for me. As much as I’ve been trying to get myself motivated to do something, my eyes won’t budge from the tv. I guess I’m sorry? Maybe it’s the 8 months of no tv that’s making me obsessed.

Anyways, as I watch countless commercials, sifting through the crazy world of advertising, one series of commercials stand out over the rest. Old Spice.

Old Spice brand cologne, deodorant, and body wash for men has the silliest ad campaign. Every commercial features utter craziness that hooks even the females.

Being a journalism major, I love watching ads to see what draws people in… and Old Spice still makes it as my number one favorite ad campaign. They are so bizarre and silly, that they just make me happy.

So below are my favorite examples of how amazing Old Spice ads are.

Enjoy!

and, of course, the most amazing Bruce Campbell!

Which is your favorite?

P.S. here’s a bonus

Day 10: Wes Anderson American Express Card

30 May

Hello there! If this is your first time on the website, check out the about page in the top right hand corner.

How’s it going everyone?

Today, I’m a bit low on time (I’m playing Monopoly, which I’m never really optimistic about), so I will leave you with a great commercial.

Anyone who knows me knows that I’m a pretty big Wes Anderson fan. His movies are amazingly cool and the concepts are pretty sweet. Plus they feature like all of my favorite actors (like Jason Schwartzman, who is actually a cameo in this video).

This video is pretty awesome because, as Paste Magazine puts it, it’s a Wes Anderson commercial about making a Wes Anderson commercial about making a Wes Anderson movie. I love it, and I think it’s awesome. So enjoy! And wish me luck ;)
