Nice way to kick off the year. Not primarily a music blog but when something goes hard, I’m posting it. Check out this banger from the Nike Talk click:
Straight out of the movie 40-Year Old Virgin:
Bay will open a temporary “holiday store” in New York City on November 20, according to WWD.WWD says that shoppers at the popup store “will have access to the entire eBay marketplace via Internet kiosks, handheld tablets and the eBay mobile phone application.” eBay has not posted a press release about the shop and it is unclear how services at the physical retail location would differ from those offered online.
The online auctioneer/marketplace will set up shop at 3 West 57th street in a building once occupied by Phillips Auctioneers.
No word yet on whether Trish will be brought in to manage day-to-day operations. Personally speaking, I don’t see myself traveling downtown to a eBay store just to log on to their website and bid on items. Sounds completely pointless. I would imagine that internet shoppers shop online not only for the deals, but because we’re lazy when it comes to shopping.
But eBay people are smarter than me, so I’m sure they know what they’re doing!
Missed me? I’ve been busy sorting some things out, namely preparing for a move and organizing my life in general. But I’ll be back posting with regular frequency this month.
Reporting from Washington – The U.S. Chamber of Commerce fell victim to identity theft Monday when activist pranksters sent out a fake press release and staged a phony news conference to announce the organization’s endorsement of climate-change legislation.
“There is only one sound way to do business,” said prepared remarks included with the ersatz release. “That’s to support a strong climate-change bill quickly so . . . President Obama can lead the entire business world in ensuring our long-term prosperity.”
In reality, the chamber has opposed most climate-change legislation, expressing concerns that it was not sufficiently comprehensive and international and that it imposed too high a regulatory burden.
The briefing at the National Press Club — complete with the chamber’s logo on the lectern — did not last long. Within a few minutes, a real chamber official, communications director Eric Wohlschlegel, walked in and announced: “This is a fraudulent press activity, and a stunt.”
Good stuff. One thing I don’t get, though. These pranksters have staged pranks before. How come they are never recognized? Oh well!
Further proof that Obama is ruining America:
NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) – The United States is the most admired country globally thanks largely to the star power of President Barack Obama and his administration, according to a new poll.
It climbed from seventh place last year, ahead of France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Japan which completed the top five nations in the Nation Brand Index (NBI).
“What’s really remarkable is that in all my years studying national reputation, I have never seen any country experience such a dramatic change in its standing as we see for the United States for 2009,” said Simon Anholt, the founder of NBI, which measured the global image of 50 countries each year.
He believes that during the previous administration of George W. Bush the United States suffered in the world ranking with its unpopular foreign policies but since Obama was elected, and despite the recent economic turmoil, the country’s status has risen globally.
“There is no other explanation,” Anholt said in an interview, referring to the impact of Obama.
This is bad. Really bad. Somehow. Stay tuned for Republican spin.
