Not content with the fabulous Golf night driving, VW have extended the use of the Touareg stunts from the new Matt Damon film, the Bourne Ultimatum with a 3D stunt simulator: create your own stunts, load ’em, see if the people out there rate your stunt as cunning or not (deliberate Kenny Everett -ism there for those that remember).
I love this quote from the Sunday Times about America’s fascination with the Western as a film genre and how they are nothing less than:
the creation of national narratives
Such a wonderful evocative thought.
First Direct photography competition capturing the essence of the always-on, 24/7, crackberry addicted society.
Gossip at/about Starbucks blog. Whatever, I like their new Java chip coffee blended creme frappucino thingy.
I like the dunce hat we have at work. It seems to have got lost in the recent re-shuffle of desks.
Last time I was at Schiphol, I noticed they had a new huge screen alongside one the walkways. Unfortunately, the first user of this, Ford Mondeo, just sliced and diced the TV ad and lobbed it on the screen in a strange scrolling manner. Didn’t quite make the best use of the space and the genuine 30 seconds of attention you had. Quality from my mobile is a bit ropey but you get my point.
