Seth Kills it Again

"Many people in the United States purchase one or fewer books every year.

Many of those people have seen every single episode of American Idol. There is clearly a correlation here."

Deliberately Uninformed.

the Vinyl Conflict

still looking for some of those elusive SLAYER records that have been out of print? Yeah me too - I'm missing a couple. Anyway SLAYER is repressing all of them from Reign in Blood to now as a special box set. Thanks for the tip Colin!

Chipotle Ditched Ad Agencies

Mr. Crumpacker(Chief Marketing Officer) points out that the chain hasn't added a menu item in 17 years and it also does not have a regular cadence of pricing promotions. For those reasons, he said, agencies' experience with other fast food chains is irrelevant.

"We've looked at TV; we've looked at it all," Mr. Crumpacker said. "Chipotle was built on word-of-mouth marketing. We're focused on reigniting word-of-mouth marketing, rather than big advertising campaigns."

Love this kind of attitude, and I still love Chipotle.

Facebook to Become Bigger than Google in 5 Years

Pretty cool read if you're into this kind of stuff.....

FTA:"Even if every single Facebook user performs just as many searches with Google as ever—including Google Instant, mobile search, and YouTube—Facebook will inexorably grow as big as Google is today and maybe bigger, because Madison Avenue’s brands are less interested in targeting than they are in broadcasting to vast mother-loving buckets of demographically correct eyeballs, and Facebook has become the perfect platform for that."

Why Are Records 12 Inches Across?

Around the same time that Thomas Edison was working on recording and playing back sound on cylinders, Berliner was doing similar experiments with flat discs.
