WAR Against the Pop-ups!

Posted by Dalene on Tuesday, November 9, 2010, In : Opinion 
Someone must've slotted their dirty little flash drive into my USB port and left a lovely steamy deposit of piranha style virus on my PC.

Needless to say, a week later my computer was beaching itself like a sad whale giving up for no apparent reason.

My bro, being the doctor of everything that opens and shuts, beeps and clicks, took a look at my sick computer.

Drew: "Why did you turn your anti-virus off?".

Me:  "What? I didn't touch the anti-virus thingy. I wouldn't even know where to find it if...

Advertisements: The good, the bad and the ugly!

Posted by Dalene on Tuesday, November 9, 2010, In : Opinion 
Everyday there's a new company trying to convince a group of people that they need something that they've done quite well so far without.

How on earth are you supposed to choose from such an enormous range of washing powders which are only playing with a 10 to 50 cents competitive mark? I would love to see every company getting creative, being a little daring, pushing the envelope, exploring the reactions of the public and watching society blossom into a creative mess of free-flow edgeyness!

Posted by Dalene on Sunday, August 8, 2010, In : Opinion 

“Rock journalism is people who can’t write interviewing people who can’t talk for people who can’t read” – Frank Zappa.

“Rock journalism is people who can’t write…” Its not that they can’t write, it’s just that it is a waste of time to write about something that doesn’t really matter. Unless you’re exposing great evils of the earth to society in the name of public interest, can you really call yourself a journalist? Ozzy’s insights into his latest drug binge getti...

After running an errand, don’t you hate coming back to your car to find that where you chose to park, a gaggle of very annoying, super lazy promotions company employees has plastered your car with an array of flyers promoting parties you won’t go to and muti recipies you aren’t going to try?

Julius ‘Douche-bag’ Malema

Posted by Dalene on Thursday, May 13, 2010, In : Opinion 
Meet Julius Malema. Claim to Fame: The World’s Biggest Douche Bag.

I visited Malema’s website (yes he has his own website *roles eyes*) and have taken these two paragraphs off of his homepage.

"It is widely know that woodwork is not one of my strengths. Call me controversial or arrogant, but my view of my personality is that of a confident African child who is not ashamed of who he is.

Posted by Dalene on Sunday, April 25, 2010, In : Opinion 

"Maybe you’re impressing your investors. Maybe you’re impressing Wall Street. You’re not impressing us." - No. 69 The Cluetrain Manifesto thesis.

An organisation’s first priority? The bottom line. The more investors they get, the more money they make. It's pure greed.

They are ignoring the market by only aiming to impress investors. One message, one mission, one tactic.

What is the Colour of the Wind?

Posted by Dalene on Thursday, March 4, 2010, In : Opinion 
Any Disney fan would know that Pocahontas seems to know what the colour of the wind is. However, for those of us that aren’t moving 2D images, we have don’t see wind as having colour, unless you’re under the influence of narcotics.

Ask someone taking the ‘dye’ drug what colour they are and they’ll tell you that they are blue. Ask someone taking LSD what colour their submarine...
