Blippy

Until recently, I was a social media skeptic. I thought Twitter was over-sharing and foursquare an invasion of privacy, but I gave in and have a not-so-secret crush on both. I love how they have different ways of helping you connect with people.

I’m addicted to Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, A Small World and Four Square, but that doesn’t mean I’ll jump into any webpage that requires me adding friends or followers. Daily Booth was a bit too narcissistic for me but Blippy takes the award for the most ridiculous.

Blippy is a fun and easy way to see and discuss the things people are buying

I might as wells start giving out copies of my debit card statement to all that walk by. I don’t think it’s necessary, fun, smart or safe to tell the world how much money you decide to spend. That’s your business only. Will it make me cooler or a better person if my old high school friend or ex coworker knows how much I spend on a daily basis? Definitely no.

This goes under the category of Extreme and Unnecessary Oversharing.

I wonder if brands will try to market themselves on Blippy and how that would happen.

Rush Ridiculousness

One of the first image results when you search for 'sorority' on google

I don’t know much about sororities. All I know I’ve learned about TV shows and movies that portray what I thought was a ridiculous sorority stereotype. It’s nice to know they got the stereotype from somewhere, apparently the girls at Cornell’s Phi Phi sorority. They sent out a 7 pagI e list of dress requirements for rush week and here are some favorite of my favorite requirements:

CLOTHING

  • No muffin tops or extreme low rise!!
  • No Cropped pants. Ugh
  • If wearing a skirt tights are necessary!
  • No summer pattern/colors
  • No frumpy
  • No Satin: No one looks good in satin dresses unless it’s from Betsey Johnson or Dolce and Gabbana, you weigh less than 130 pounds, have 3 pairs of spanx on and it’s New Years Eve.

SHOES

  • Nice flats: Tory Burch, etc. More evening-ish understated
  • No sky-high hooker heels!
  • Boots worn OVER pants
  • NO white
  • If you’re wearing cheapo shoes amke sure they don’t look it.
  • No “Fuck-me-pumps”
  • No Tacky/cheapo/pleather. Don’t mess with me.

ACCESSORIES

  • No obnoxious piercings.
  • No chokers
  • No ribbon overkill
  • No plastic
  • No charm. we aren’t 5. unless I say it’s beautiful
  • No forever21 rings
  • I will not tolerate any gross plastic shizz

OTHER NOTES

  • Shaved legs
  • If you don’t know if something is appropriate/works, email me.
  • Blush. This is not optional.
  • No mustaches
  • No chapped lips
  • No sultry. It’s noon people. And these are girls, not laxers. No need to seduce them with caked on black eye makeup.
  • Nails: you best have a mani pedi when you get to Ithaca.
  • Wear perfume
  • Wear deodorant
  • Get waxed, cut, colored and groomed!!! Mani and pedi prior to Ithaca.

I though sororities were about sisterhood, not a ridiculous fashion police. If you must see the full list. They’re all here.

Where There’s a Bark, There’s a Bite

Not even 'Edward' should go around biting.

I think Twilight fans are a bit much. I’m not against them– I’ve read all the books and seen the movies. I do see why they like it, but I think the obsession can get a little extreme.

I thought they were creepy but never THIS creepy. A girl watching New Moon in Michigan was actually bitten this weekend while watching New Moon. It wasn’t a sexy nibble gone wrong or a hungry moviegoer who mistook her for a snack but a 45 year old pervert sitting in the seat behind her.

He didn’t break the skin, and he hasn’t been caught yet. I assume she’ll be too creeped out to go to the movies anytime soon. I’m sure I would be too (after being disinfected, sanitized and had my tetanus shot)

more about “Where There’s a Bark, There’s a Bite“, posted with vodpod

Though it might seem that most of the girls are into vampires with the Twilight, True Blood and Vampire Diaries craze I hope biting doesn’t become the new pick up line. Unless you’re Robert Pattison  and she has a Twilight tattoo, I’m pretty sure it won’t work.

Rejection Hotline

woman on phone

I thought it was really mean when I found out about The Rejection Hotline (Click here for your local number), but now I know why it exists.

So here’s how the story goes. A guy approached a girl at the bar, she gave him her business card and he left these:

Horrible VoiceMail

Too funny! talk about being full of himself. He’s the perfect example of the kind of guy that deserves to be given the Rejection Hotline number.

Expense-a-Steak

Fraud-o-matic

Expenseasteak.com is a genius micro site for Maloney & Porcelli’s a NYC steakhouse that has found an interesting way to get you to eat there: make the company pay for it.

This stunt from NYC agency Walrus goes beyond digital marketing in a page that’s both clever and charming. You simply have to enter the total of your Maloney & Porcelli’s bill and it will give you a pdf with a series of realistic looking receipts that add up to the exact amount you spent.

What better way to break through the mold then to have a humorous approach to the recession.

It’s advertising at it’s best, but I wonder if anyone has dared to use the fake receipts, especially with the amount of buzz the web page has gotten.
