Guy Kawasaki’s “10-20-30” Presentation Rule

3 very insightful yet simple guidelines to a sales presentation. Great way to mould what you  have on offer. It could really be applicable to any presentation you ever make! I'll let the video do all the talking.

Love at first sight

Great outfit!

Great outfit!

I couldn't get over how perfect this entire get-up was; from her hair down to her shoes! And I think with her face, only she could pull this off. <3<3<3

The Useless Cafe Whiteboard

Useless Cafe Whiteboard

I was in Canberra for a short stint a few months ago. Desperate for a coffee, I went to check a local cafe's 'specials' board to see what they had on offer. They didn't have what I wanted, damnit! But I was sold on the PSYCHIC JAGUAR SPIRIT.

Tropfest 2009

Hmmm...

Hmmm...

Is it exploitative if you use a ridiculously charming yet mentally-disabled person to win a short film festival?

The winner's video is nowhere to be found except in the coming weekend paper, but this was shown after the final film of the night was shown. Then everyone continued to walk pass the Big Issue vendors and the homeless guys without a second look.

Strategic Buying During An Economic Downturn

I'm preparing and finalising some buying within a few minutes and hoping that the best choices were made. Is it something that needs serious qualifications and training, or just experience and knowing your market, their buying patterns and such? I guess it depends on the scale (buying for Myer as opposed to buying for a tiny boutique shop).

During an economic downturn, people tend to have less to spend and will start looking at cheaper alternatives and/ or dropping luxury goods. Therefore, choice of buying should be based on:

  • Following basic buying principles (matches your business product mix, ability to complement across the store, ease of merchandising and branding, etc.)
  • Higher affordability for both the consumers and the retailer
  • Higher in value (getting more out of their dollar)
  • Lower in absolute price terms (more…)

Skins Season 3 underway

Skins Season 3 Promo Group Shot

Skins Season 3 Promo Group Shot

Season 3 of Skins started mid-January and I completely missed it! Caught up really quick (was only behind 4 episodes?). It's ridiculously trashy yet lovable teenage angst.

  • Completely new cast to seasons 1 & 2 (with the exception of Effie and Pandora)
  • Always wicked music (they played a Boards of Canada track in Episode 5 of all things, and a bit of Pink Floyd in Episode 3 or 4)
  • From what I have gathered so far, plot-lines include: a fucked-up guy without a sense of responsibility, a ridiculously pretty skater boy who is obviously in the show for more then just his looks, lesbians, loads of promiscuity and a lovely romance between a virgin outcast and a lovely African boy

The Presets – If I Know You

Recently released promo video for "If I Know You" from The Preset's Apocalypso.

Is it just me, or does the style really reek of something an Australian choreographer/ music video director would do?

Kidrobot Dunnys: March Release Jaguar Warrior & S5 Favourites

Kidrobot announced its March line-up, amongst them new 8-inch dunny Jaguar Warrior by Jesse Hernandez.

When you're broke, you can't afford to buy Dunnys in case quantities to find the small handful that you REALLY want. So you should just pinpoint the particular ones you want.
