Great… and Greater

jobs-2013-11539

Saw Jobs (the movie) final­ly. This thing is a good source of inspi­ra­tion for cre­atives. One of the monologue’s that I still remem­ber is the one that Matthew Modine said (por­tray­ing John Scul­ley in the screen­cap above):

You can make a great prod­uct, but you have to con­vince peo­ple that what you’re sell­ing is greater.

This doesn’t only deal with mate­r­i­al prod­ucts per se, but our­selves.

fun.‘s “Carry On”, and “Before Shane Went to Bangkok…”

Cause here we are
We are shin­ing stars
We are invin­ci­ble
We are who we are
On our dark­est day
When we’re miles away
Sun will come
We will find our way home

If you’re lost and alone
Or you’re sink­ing like a stone.
Car­ry on.
May your past be the sound
Of your feet upon the ground.
Car­ry on.

Under­rat­ed song from fun’s album I’d say. It’s dope. This could be an alter­nate New Year’s song, ver­sus the ole’ “Auld Lang Syne”. What you think?

Any­ways, if you haven’t yet, be sure to cop their free live EP “Before Shane Went to Bangkok…”

Down­load here.

Before Shane Went to Bangkok: FUN. Live in the USA.

Of Hamsters, and Blake Griffin?

It’s not news to most that KIA has been pro­duc­ing awe­some car com­mer­cials for the past cou­ple of years now. They have been boost­ing up their mar­ket­ing dol­lars with cre­ativ­i­ty and humor; and they have the increase in sale num­bers to prove it. Whether the star of the show are char­ac­ters from Yo Gab­ba Gab­ba, ham­sters, or a bas­ket­ball star on the rise—Blake Grif­fin.
