Katy vs. Miley, Katy and Kanye

By Roni Brunn | July 31, 2008 | News

Okay, so Miley Cyrus was rude about Katy Perry’s suggestion they kiss at the MTV VMAs. I’d expect more from Miley/her team. Sure. But is that reason enough to take Katy’s side?

Why is everyone cool with a 23 year old leering at a 15 year old? If Katy were a guy, we’d be disgusted. I am.

Also, today Kanye blogged that “I Kissed a Girl” is the shit (see it here). I liked her better as a punchline to regurgitated jokes about the mainstream, but I think we’ll be seeing much much more pro-Katy stuff from people who should know better.

My vote’s for Rihanna, if anyone’s scoring.

80s McDonald’s ad w/ Jason Alexander

By Roni Brunn | July 31, 2008 | News

Remember Styrofoam? Everything was packaged in Styrofoam in the 80s. McDonald’s thought it best to keep the tomatoes off the meat and created a special container to achieve this culinary feat:

Also, the dancing/singing/enthusiasm is as curious as the sandwich.

Google ads as graffiti

By Roni Brunn | July 30, 2008 | News

This ad was posted on Columbia Records’ corporate site:

Major Labels Are Obsolete
R.I.P. or learn and thrive.
Music. Tech. The New Music Business
Hypebot.com

See, not all ads are consumerist.

I love Gossip Girl, so…

By Roni Brunn | July 30, 2008 | News

I was disappointed that Lucky would render Leighton Meester so um static:

There’s no way she needed all those touch ups.  Get it together, Lucky.

most adorable credit card

By Roni Brunn | July 29, 2008 | News

This card is adorable and also lets you connect to friends, pass money around, and donate to charity.  It needs cute little Facebook/MySpace apps.  The geek in me loves it.
