Apparently today is National Cleavage Day! How have I not heard of this before? It’s probably a guy’s response to Sweetest Day. And why isn’t National Cleavage Day during the summer? There’s no one really out “celebrating” on this cold March day. Anyways, in honor of this new found holiday, here are some photos of the greatest cleavage the world has ever known…Jayne Mansfield.
During the 50s and 60s, Jayne took a back seat to another blonde bombshell, a certain girl named Marilyn. She did have a real talent for acting though. She just couldn’t “bust out” of the dumb blonde roles that she was cast into. It was even known that Jayne had an IQ of 163! But boy, those boobs. So today on National Cleavage Day, I say we celebrate only one woman, the glorious pre-boob job era, Jayne Mansfield. To quote Jerry Seinfeld, “You know that Jayne Mansfield, she had some big breasts.”
Ok, this might be one of the coolest and greatest things I have ever come across. Jean Mosambi is a french graphic designer who is also behind the way too cool ‘Ten Songs A Week’ blog. Each week he compiles a different selection of tuneage, and then adds a vintage-style design sleeve. Well, f. Another thing that I wish I had thought of. I absolutely love the idea behind the blog AND the album art!
I’ve never cared for MGD 64 (now called Miller 64). It tastes like water. BUT, with the new redesign by Soulsight, I almost bought a 6-pack the other night. It’s pretty sleek looking. Design can affect me quite a bit on purchases. I love High Life, PBR, and Schlitz, and it just so happens that I love their designs and packaging. An easy buy for me. On the other side of that, Spotted Cow is a really good beer, but the labels and everything are so plain and ugly that I rarely carry it to the register. Weird. Anyways, this redesign is nice.
Here are some pretty cool/funny/sexy ads for Playboy from Y&R. I wonder what magazines these ran in, because they seem almost too risque for anything but Playboy, but why advertise about your articles in your own magazine? I don’t know. Nevertheless, they are right…deforestation is a b*tch.
The Madison Addy Awards were a couple weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to come away with a few winners. I even managed to grab a few Gold’s this year! My Rock and Roll Daydream self-promo box, Fall Classic wedding collateral, and On Wisconsin acoustic recording were all among the winners. This makes me almost as proud as winning back to back coloring contests in 1987 and 1988.
April 20: The ‘Rock and Roll Daydream Box Set’ and ‘Wedding Collateral’ ended up winning Silver Addy Awards at District! Very cool.
…and by request, here are the pics of an award winning 5 and 6 year old Josh.
Ha! Here are some pretty funny ads from Goodby, Silverstein & Partners. The campaign was to get knowledge out that the calcium in milk really does help when it’s “that time of the month.” Apparently women everywhere were getting pissed by these though, because they portray them as raging lunatics. But you know what? These don’t exactly paint the men in a great light either. And for every commercial or ad out there that is deemed sexist towards women, there’s an ad with a bumbling and inept buffoon of a man to match. We can’t throw the sexist or racist card every time feathers get a little ruffled, unless of course it’s deserving. Everyone’s just gotta loosen up. These are pretty funny. Not the greatest ads ever, but still funny.
I got married four months ago to a wonderful little lady and had a baseball themed wedding. I was surprised she went for the idea when I brought it up originally. She’s not a HUGE baseball fan like everyone else in my family, but she does like Continue reading
I came across these awesome photos recently on Abduzeedo. Vintage neon signs are great. Especially the old run-down ones. These were taken by Debra Jane Seltzer. She has a TON of images on her flickr account and some cool sets. The best is a set of roadside photos for every state. Check it out!
I love really cool packaging and well put together kits. This is a great looking repackaging concept from Alex Sophocles for Higgins India Ink. The stained wood case and old looking typography make it.
