Stuff I like:
Second-hand books,
branded utility,
word collisions,
digital augmentation of real-world interaction,
Alec Baldwin voiceovers,
pop culture mash-ups,
a lo-fi aesthetic,
the old red, white and blue ABA ball,
Leftfield video clips,
mindblowing shit on The Discovery Channel,
long-form, yellow-tinged Nike magazine ads circa. the waffle sole,
pop stars that don't have the surname Cyrus,
copy that feels like it was written by humans, not robots,
robots,
Vonnegut,
cinema,
magic,
the study of memetics and how it applies to viral advertising,
Scandinavian ad work,
social media pranking,
table tennis,
occasional instances of sleep deprivation,
economy of word, the Internets as experiment,
the utterly freaking unexplainable,
George Meyer-era Simpsons episodes,
use of the double negative,
Spike Lee joints,
new forms of interaction, &
all sorts of other interesting stuff.

Thanks.
