it is ahead.

My father let me have his creme colored Mustang from age 14 on. That was in Germany where driving was prohibited under age 18. That was when he took the keys from me.

Age 14, when there were still borders in Europe, I took my friends across for ski trips on Austrian slopes. Dad told me how to drive in the everglades early on. In Washington DC he let me do the driving, got out of the car and said: “Meet you at the hotel.”

Today’s Mustang looks like a toy car. Why shouldn’t it? It is a toy, now isn’t it? It would make for a desirable EV and be something to look forward to.

That one person is really like three people

  1. The person you think you are.
  2. The person that people see.
  3. The person you really are.

The first time I heard this was when Justin Townsend was kind enough to evaluate one of my propositions for a self-promotion piece.

Good advice to pay attention to, for anyone working on their blog or self-promotion.

In the absence of a new aesthetic (NA), it’s good to see Spandau Ballet with no identity crisis. Fantastic really. Helen Mirren is beautiful to look at and Tony Hadley moves like an actor playing a mafioso. No?











Well maintained, well mannered, beautiful to look at are Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Brühl, aside from Tony Hadley, at age 54 no clown on stage.

Regie: Hitoshi Matsumoto, Nao Ohmori in der Hauptrolle.

R100 directed by Hitoshi Matsumoto staring Nao Ohmori.



R100—the title a riff on the Japanese movie rating system, whose equivalent to NC-17 is R18
or the German FSK, “Ab 18 freigegeben.”



Hacker, maker, teacher, thief

Which one are you?

Having been there, done all, I’d say, I am the thief. But that space is taken by Faris Yacob.Been there did nothing (Schulz)

Due to my most recent hick-up №4, when I spilled my retirement cash into Berlin’s river Spree, I have returned to being a graphic designer and help people succeed with their businesses bottom up at the most needed level. Their website.

With a difference, I do the hacking myself. I am at my best in branding – connecting the dots – exactly as it has been said about Steve Jobs. The dots I connect are objects and hunches I follow. I aim at getting it done with the most basic of available assets, my choice of prefab, off-the-shelf templates (blog dna) and hand-picked web fonts.

I’ve had the same school of people on my radar since their discovery (me stumbling upon their digital left behinds shortly after the Berlin hick-up in 2006 mentioned earlier), and I am as excited as envious to see Ana Andjelic and Gareth Kay edit a book on the future of advertising and John V Willshire starring in the video. How refreshing!

Alas, I don’t like the book cover all too much. Here’s one I’d like to see on the market.



remake of book cover



Questions addressed in the book are:

  • What does the industry need to do today (not tomorrow) to stay valuable and relevant?
  • What the f**k do clients know about great advertising?
  • How can copying make you more original?
  • How do we ‘do’ innovation?
  • Should we make things people want rather than make people want things?
  • How do you find emotional resonance in real time marketing?
  • What’s the best way to punch procrastination in the face?
  • And why are we so excited by the next generation of advertising?

Men, Women & Children follows the story of a group of high school teenagers and their parents as they attempt to navigate the many ways the internet has changed their relationships, their communication, their self-image, and their love lives. The film attempts to stare down social issues such as video game culture, anorexia, infidelity, fame-hunting, and the proliferation of illicit material on the internet. As each character and each relationship is tested, we are shown the variety of roads people choose – some tragic, some hopeful – as it becomes clear that no one is immune to this enormous social change that has come through our phones, our tablets, and our computers.
