David Attenborough Narrates Women's Curling

This is good, this is very good. David Attenborough narrates women's curling ... as if he discovered a new species.


A Bacteria Named After Frank Zappa? WTF?

The scientists named it P. Zappae. Quite an honor, is it? The bacteria causes a form of acne in humans. Mm mm. And they found it in a vineyard. It's getting weirder and weirder.

But now I've read the whole article it makes sense:

"“This bacteria is so unconventional in its behavior, and its new habitat is so unexpected that we thought of Frank Zappa. Indeed, at the time we were discovering it, we were both playing a Zappa album in our cars,” Campisano and co-author Omar Rota-Stabelli said."

Just Thinking ...

I was on an event yesterday 'Bladen In De Balie' (Magazines in De Balie) in Amsterdam. The future of magazines. Content - Context. Ofcourse a GoogleGlass talk. A talk by a publisher who said that every printed title has something that works, it can be an event, a website, an app, GoogleGlass et cetera. Nice. And a talk by the publishers of a specialized dutch car magazine.

Suddenly it hits me. Probably not original, but I couldn't get it out of my head.

1. Remember in the 'past' you would buy for example a magazine about history, gossip, gadgets, fashion. You bought a title. Fashion ---> Elle. But now with the 'pay per article', websites, blogs, you buy / read an article from a journalist, writer. The person is getting more important nowadays.

2. Why do we still need a car showroom? Last week I saw a pop-up store and I was thinking why don't they get rid of car showrooms and use pop-up stores? Yesterday I listened to the research they did, the facts, the statistics. Roughly put. 99% of the time people spend looking for a new (used) car is checking internet, finally 1%: car dealer. The dutch magazine Autoweek is going to organize an event with all car brands. 3 days, you buy a ticket online and if you're interested in a certain car you can reserve a time to test the specific car. Drive it. Very good idea. Bye bye very costly showrooms.

Ah well, as I said ... just thinking ...

Confide - Self-Destructing Messages

Can't wait till I can download this app on Google Play. Android version plse! Confide let you send messages that self destruct after these have been read. How cool! Real 'private' messages.

Hello, My Name Is Vladimir

Up till now the best Olympic related ad I've seen. Hello, My Name Is Vladimir by BrewDog. Using the brand Putin.

"Hello, my name is Vladimir. I am a beer for uber hetero men who ride horses while topless and carrying knives. I am a beer to mark the 2014 Winter Olympics. But I am not for gays. Love wrestling burly men on the Judo mat or fishing in your Speedos? Then this is the beer for you!"

Tweet about this beer using #NotForGays.
