BANK WARS: Social Media done right

BANK WARS: Social Media done right

So a lot of corporates are out there in the social media space making tools of themselves. It’s embarrassing to watch. However sometimes corporates get it spot on.

Nobody takes ponies seriously anymore. Not even you. I saw you chuckle just then.

I for one welcome our new robot overlords

Bring it back: Technology

I was born in 1979, during the decline of technology. I’m not saying today’s technology is dead, but it bores me to tears.

Bring it back: Labour Party

Boy. Things are getting serious. As an American living in Australia, I feel arrogant enough to tell you the NZ Labour Party is over. Finito. Long gone are the Frasers and Kirks and Clarks.

I hate facial hair on guys. Hitler moustaches however, can be sexy, depending on the context*.

Bring It Back: Sexy

Sexy is dead. It died sometime in the 1980s after the rise of giant shoulder pads, Kenny Rogers and corporate America.

Bring It Back: Useful Dogs

Bring It Back: Useful Dogs

Dogs is an anagram of gods. This is no coincidence. Dogs ARE gods. Well, at least they were, until around the 1960s when they started becoming as lazy and useless as their human owners.

I’m an opinionated man. Anyone who knows me personally will tell you that I have an opinion on everything. Everything.

Bring it back: Queues

I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know I know. Queues suck. Can you really think of anything worse than standing behind another person who’s standing behind another person?

Bring it back: Daphne Lingerie

Bring it back: Daphne Lingerie

Victoria’s Secret dominates the lingerie market.  They’re a multi-cajillion dollar business that, as far as I can tell, targets its ads primarily at the eyeballs and regular balls of pubescent and post-pubescent men.

Yeesh, things certainly have become rather serious on The Ruminator.  Other writers have been talking about racism, sexism, anxiety disorders, and techno-annoyance (of this and this).  It’s enough to cramp your furrowed brows.

Even though his disguise was lacking, Jarrod Doubtfire was still able to fool his family

Saving television

Television is dying. I don’t mean my television specifically – rather ALL television. The medium of television.

I am very competitive.  Very.  I’m only writing this blog post because I’m not currently winning this blog.  I don’t even know what that means.

The greatest song of all

The greatest song of all

When it’s 2am and the only people left at a party are the ones you’re not entirely comfortable talking to, conversation often lurches around trying to find common ground. Something you can all relate to. One such topic is “what’s the greatest song of all time?”

Bring it back: Creepy window displays

Bring it back: Creepy window displays

Sometimes I see a picture of something from the past, and I get jealous to the point of becoming angry.  I’m jealous that the thing I saw and its sheer awesomeness no longer exists in modern day society.

Uniball Power Tank: A review

The Uniball Power Tank is just another entrant to Mitsubishi’s popular Uniball range of precision writing instruments. The model I tested featured black ink, but green, red and blue are also available.
