Jordan 11s release causes riot at mall.

Some mace, a few f-bombs and a bunch or rowdy shoppers all come together for some holiday cheer in Dallas. The new Nike Air Jordan Retro 11s are the hottest holiday shopping item. That's if you don't mind a little mace in da face!

Funny Hockey Commercials

Check out this great batch of TV spots for the Boston Bruins. I'm not a Bruins fan but you gotta love the insightful work that Mullen put into these spots.
My favorite one is "Respect the jersey".

Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Launches CBTL Single serve coffee makers

It's the coolest looking single serve coffee maker, ever. It's designed by the Italians who not only know alot about coffee -- but they are pretty stylish when it comes to product design, fashion, and cars. According to our friends at Coffee Bean, the new CBTL™ is an easy to use, single serve beverage system that combines the handcrafted taste and quality that is the hallmark of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. One capsule is all you need to create a single serving. One touch is all it takes to brew fresh espresso, brewed coffee or tea. So I can get rid of my espresso maker -- and my coffee maker? I think this is going under our Xmas tree.

Robots Read your Resume!

The 24-Step Modern Resume
According to this article put out by the Ladders, if you don't follow these rules, your resume will end up in a black hole! That's right. Unreadable by the "robot" recruiter and therefore invisible. YOU ARE INVISIBLE. And don't even get started with abbreviations, misspellings and other faux pas.

Google Images can be useful

Photo credit: Nik Daum
On a recent assignment, I was looking for an image related to shipping and sending packages. I Googled those words and came across this picture of a guy in Shanghai hauling a mountain of styrofoam on his bike. I used it for our presentation and got a great response. Now, I'm either going to have to purchase it from the bolgger I borrowed it from — or recreate it! Thanks Google Images! I could never have found this from a Stock Photo source and I had never seen anything like this before. Kinda makes me want to go to Shanghai and see more inventive, craziness like this.
