Over the past few years, Selfridges, the iconic London department store, has kicked off the New Year with a campaign that showcases young artists and designers.
This year, they decided to showcase artists and designers who range in age from late 40s to 80s.
The campaign is called Bright Old Things.
All 14 of the creative types featured in the Bright Old Things campaign "embraced a new vocation later in life." For example, Sue Kreitzman, whose Selfridge's store window is above, is a food writer turned artist.
According to Gawker, one of the actors who portrayed McGruff the Crime Dog, John Morales, has been sentenced to 16 years in prison after pleading guilty to possession of a lot of things he shouldn't have had lying around his house:
[P]olice seized 1,000 marijuana plants, 27 weapons – including a grenade launcher, and 9,000 rounds of ammunition from [Morales'] home.
That cold hard fact comes from a very nice Consumerist article about how Betty Crocker and its Minnesota-based owner General Mills are providing free wedding cakes to the first three couples to get gay married in Minnesota once it becomes legal at midnight tonight.
James Andrews, a VP at PR giant Ketchum, went to Memphis and didn't like what he saw. So he posted his opinion on Twitter:
Trouble is, Andrews was in Memphis to visit his client FedEx. Memphis is home to FedEx's headquarters. His comment on Twitter came to the attention of FedEx and Ketchum executives who are understandably angry.
No word yet as to whether Andrews is the dumbest PR guy in America or the dumbest ex-PR guy in America.
