VERY INTERESTING STUFF

Good Ideas - Good Stuff - Good Sh*t

The biggest single department at Domino’s headquarters is now IT, says [CMO Russell] Weiner, who notes that internally, it’s not uncommon to hear the brand referred to as a technology company that just happens to sell pizzas.

The opposite of love is not hate, it’s indifference. The opposite of art is not ugliness, it’s indifference. The opposite of faith is not heresy, it’s indifference. And the opposite of life is not death, it’s indifference.

Some of the Just Like Us I did for my Marvel Show. Big ups to Marvel for allowing these to be officially licensed Marvel products! 

APs of these will also be available in the near future. 

Confidence is about yourself, while enthusiasm is about something else. Confidence is impressive, while enthusiasm is infectious. Confidence is serious, while enthusiasm is fun. And fun wins.

Tina Roth Eisenberg, founder of Swiss Miss, on her “personal superpower” of enthusiasm in her altogether heartening 99u talk.

The three of us spend a lot of time reading about the future of our industry, struggling over strategic decisions, business contracts and windowing strategies, but you know what? Great creative has a way of solving a lot of those problems. You could solve every business problem if you could just do fantastic work on the creative front. And that’s hard. That’s hard to do consistently year in and year out and that’s the challenge of being a consumer brand - you have to make things that they really, really love.

Jamel Shabazz: Street Photographer

Charlie Ahearn’s Film Retraces a Moment in New York Style - Video 1 / / 3

As a teenage photographer in early 80s East Flatbush, Brooklyn, Jamel Shabazz set out to document the then nascent movement of hip-hop. Through the iconic style of his MCs, neighborhood kids and gang members, the unequivocal attitude of New York’s youth was recognized as the calling card of the city’s creative renaissance. Published in 2001, Shabazz’ first book Back In The Days was celebrated as an exhilarating snapshot of the times, and his visual flair has been brought to life in a new documentary by the legendary hip-hop historian and director, Charlie Ahearn.  “On the cover of Jamel’s book were two young men on 42nd Street. They were captured posing in such strong form as a kind of respectful bulwark against all the chaos that you see around them on ‘The Deuce,’” explains Ahearn, the notable filmmaker also responsible for the classic old-school movie, Wild Style. “I immediately knew that here was an original artist for our time.” [1]

I like how advertising is literally still exactly as sexist as they’re joking about in this comic from 54 years ago.
