Please look at One Little World because I’m really obsessed. This amazing man has people call a voicemail and talk about their secrets. He then adds music to it and posts it on his website. I secretly wish I had something to call about. But alas, I don’t think eating too much peanut butter (my guiltiest of guilty pleasures) is really a problem.

Curtis Johnson has some pretty phenomenal photography for ad campaigns. My favorite is the image of the hand holding the rain cloud. There aren’t any descriptions for the pictures which made it hard to figure out what each image was and ad for, but it was kind of fun to try and figure out what message he was trying to get across in each ad.

I very, very rarely hear an ad on the radio that I like. That’s why when I stumbled on this page on Luke Sullivan’s blog I was so relieved to finally hear some decent radio campaigns!
Every time an ad comes on the radio I immediately change the channel or turn the volume down. If more ads were like this though, I wouldn’t have to!
What makes these ads so much better than all the other ads we hear on the radio every day? Well, sound effects for one thing. The first one has the best sound effects I’ve heard in an ad. But also, the ads manage to tell a story. For example, “The Fast Food Guy” spot tells the whole story of the fast food worker’s education and the listener is able to create a story based on the fact that he is now working a drive through. The ability for these ads to tell stories help captivate the listeners so that they listen for the whole ad, instead of changing the station or turning the volume down.

I’ve been teased before for having a bucket list so early in my life. People always ask me why I have a bucket list at age 20 if I don’t plan on dying for at least another 60 years. I’ve never really understood why one has to be towards the end of their life in order to create a bucket list. I believe that now is the best time to for me to start doing things that matter to me.
That’s why, when I was mindlessly clicking away on StumbleUpon one night, I was so excited to find this Before I die wall. It is the perfect way to get people to start thinking about things that are important to them and setting goals for themselves.
Candy Chang, the creator of the wall, has some really cool artwork. I’m really impressed with her website. All of her work is so simple but has such a big impact. Her New Orleans project killed me too. New Orleans is easily my favorite city in America, and she perfectly captured how I feel whenever I visit!
And now, just for you guys, I will share my own personal bucket list:
1. Visit Auschwitz
2. Attend the World Cup
3. Watch the New York City Ballet’s Nutcracker
4. Wear a big hat to a horse race
5. Compete in a Triathlon/run a marathon
Take a minute and think about what you would put on your bucket list. It always puts a lot of things into perspective.
