Yes yes, the celebrity hugging forces of (RED) are trying to besmirch a perfectly good colour. But I couldn’t help send in a piece for the World AIDS Day 24 hour Dazed Digital broadcast. They are accepting video, stills and stuff. If guys like Rankin and Helena Christensen, among others, can send in a self-promoting piece of flotsam, why can’t you? The above is my poor effort.
Go here. Get famous.
And by the way, Dazed Digital looks pretty good and is worth a visit anyways.

The Tokyoflash website describes the 1000100101:
Straight off the wrist of a Moon Base Commander from a 1960’s Sci-Fi classic, this watch features all the things that you’d expect. Flat metal panel, cryptic flashing lights, carbon fibre style strap and display that looks like it’s gauging your oxygen level.
All I can say is I want one. Right now. And I thought the Nooka Zen-H was cool.
The Ad Feed is inspired by popURLs.com, a site that really does nothing more than pull in feeds from the most popular sites on the web. Ad Feeds aggregates the best of the Advertising blogs, sites, videos, print, and outdoor. It’s a convenient one-stop-ad-chop if you’re into that kind of thing, and we’re into that kind of thing.
Here’s a list of some of the sites they’ve pulled in:
NY Times Business-Media
Media Buyer Planner
MIT Advertising Lab
Logic + Emotion
Beyond Madison Avenue
plus: Quotes, TV Spots, and Print Ads.
They neglect, however, to include a few of my favourites:
Advertising Ourselves to Death
If any of you have the time to read all of these sites on a regular basis, you obviously don’t work in advertising.
