Dance, iPod Man, Dance!

You know those single colored people that are always dancing in the iPod commercials? Well, why don't you ever see those people in real life? Well now you can… I especially like the smooth way he recovers after realizes that they super glue those iPods to the dancers for the commercials.

Pimp My Cart?

Taking a page from MTV (what did that M stand for again?), Lex & Terry Pimped a shopping cart and awarded it to a lucky homeless person (well if you can be lucky and homeless at the same time). Some of the features on this cart include

  • Video screen w/ TV tuner
  • GPS Tracking
  • Refridgerator/warmer
  • and a Solar Powered battery charging system to run it all…

The pics are great, but seriously — I have to wonder if this is just going get this guy mugged for his "ride".

Voodoo Knife Set

"The theme was fortune, magic and lucky charms but with his project, Raffaele Iannello chose to probe the world of black magic with this knife set and distinctive holder. The striking result has gone through several iterations and is now to be produced in commercial form by Viceversa." All I can say is that I have to get one of these!

Tom Delay And Such

So Tom Delay has been in the news lately for putting his family on staff and -gasp- paying them for it. Now while many find this "unethical" it is a common practice in Washington… and I would argue in business as well. Everyone knows some shmoe working for a fortune 500 company because his uncle was a big wig with the company. I think it's more envy than ethics that we feel in those cases (why isn't MY uncle someone important…). Small businesses often employ family members, I know I do. In fact studies have show that family business have harder working employees because they are not just employees — their family. A concept not lost to big business as they try to build "team", "group", or "family" cohesion. Anyway, I digress. The irony is that the two people pointing the finger at Delay have done more and worse… Harry Reid not only has family working for him but has sponsored legislasion that gave kickbacks to a lawfirm that employs 5 family members. Nancy Pelosi was slapped with a $21,000 fine by the Federal Election Commission for funnelling more than $100,000 in illegal contributions to Democratic candidates in late 2002 as she was vying to become Democratic leader. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black.
