Branding

Saw this today:

It's a makeup kit, not an iPhone. I think it's hilarious.

The Baronette and I went to a few big stores today (Target, Kohl's, Barnes & Noble), the first time I've been in a store like that for a while now, and I realized that I seem to have developed the Cayce Pollard brand allergy. Or not really an allergy, but a kind of bizarre response that mixes repulsion, amusement, and, oddly energization: it's good to be reminded of what you oppose.

I don't really have a point, I guess.

Would you recommend "Pattern Recognition"?

PR by Gibson is an AMAZING book.

Rachel, Soj isn't being emphatic enough. I wouldn't hesitate to call Pattern Recognition the best work of fiction of the past decade. Read the hell out of it is my advice.
