Eve's tattoo


This is the back of Ms. Eve Luppert who, under the influence of Thanksgiving spirits and egged on, no doubt, by her niece, Pauline, got herself a tattoo over the holidays.

Chris Nolan

I've been exchanging email with Chris Nolan, who has gone far since leaving C/D. (He worked in LA and then Seattle from 1977-1982.)

I ve had a commercial production company for 15 years, I also specialize in non-traditional, half-show biz/half-adland campaigns, still do some swat team creative directing and I’ve sold screenplays, had movies produced and directed episodic TV and I’m producing/directing/co-writing an Indie movie about Hendrix that the Hendrix Estate just gave their blessing to. It shoots in Seattle next spring.

Information Behavior Survey

Hi everybody, it's Eve Luppert. Do me a big favor, won't you, and help my lovely neice, Aileen, with a research project?

Dear Friends and Family,

Call it a blatant effort to take advantage of your love for me, but I’m asking for a favor. Most of you know I’m back in school to study library and information science. My first class includes the study of “information behavior” which asks questions about how we decide we need information, how we get it, how we give it, and when do we avoid it.

For this class, I am in a group assigned the task of studying the information behavior of musicians. As part of our field work, we have created a survey and I’m looking for participants. You would be doing me a tremendous favor if you would pass along this link to any musicians you know, and ask them to fill it out. Of course, for those of you who are musicians, please fill out it out too.

We are looking for both professional and non-professional musicians. There are only 11 questions and it shouldn’t take more than a few minutes. I assure anyone who takes the survey that we are not asking for any personal or identifying information. Your answers will be used for our educational purposes only. I’m happy to answer any additional questions at either this email address or my school one (aluppert@u.washington.edu).

Thank you very much! I hope everyone is happy and healthy!

It's a glass of beer

This TV commercial for Guinness took a week to film in a mountainous Argentine village, with some of the sequences having to be reshot up to 15 times.

The "M" stands for "mobile." A new pod hotel from Holland.

Good Enough is Not Enough

Bart </p>

From an article by Bart Cleveland in AdAge:

Remember that old saying attributed to Jay Chiat, "Good enough is not good enough"? It holds a very special meaning to me because my first assignment in advertising school was to hand-draw Mr. Chiat's belief in Franklin Gothic Heavy.

A bizarre TV commercial for Sylvania light bulbs from, I believe, Thailand.

If Jay were still alive and we all still worked at Chiat/Day, you can bet we'd be climbin' one of these.
