6 of the Best: Body and Soulless TV edition
A few bibs and bobs that rocked my world this week. Come join me.
1. "Why intelligent women are obsessed with trashy reality TV shows" - by me
Now, (try to) stop me if you've heard this story (like for instance here, here or here) but just to recap:
In the first episode I was really disappointed by the Americanised bastardisation of the movie. Two days later I finished watching all 10 episodes in season one. Bring on season 2!
3. It's funny because it's true.
Oh yes. While reading this article by Mark Perkins, at first I had trouble remembering all the trannies I had to deal with, but eventually, memory served and a thousand images came flashing back :) Looking back, I can't believe we used to hire out rooms in 5-star hotels for morning software product launches (and serve wine at them!) Ah, good times.
6. Mumbrella post: Woolies - home of the best-worst product slogans
Mumbrella brings to our attention the somewhat lackadaisical slogans of this supermarket's home brand products. Why do I get the impression that rather than a creative department, a member of the overworked executive team usually puts it to his 4 year old for some input and each suggestion is met by a cry of "yeah, that'll do"?
Stay classy and a bit bad assy!
