NxtUp...WTF?!

Starbucks Logo

"A Christian group based in San Diego found grounds for outrage over the new retro-style logo for Starbucks Coffee. The Resistance says the new image "has a naked woman on it with her legs spread like a prostitute".

Instead of worrying about other things going on in the world. This is the sort of thing
'The Reisitance' is concerned about?

NxtUp...Satire

Wonder Woman vs. Superman
"
Vedeze is a Belgian cartoonist who uses existing photographs to create his satirical and topical imagery. Most of his work is focused on the current Belgian socio-political situation (Vedeze is also a supporter of the “Save Solidarity” movement, which aims at saving the bonds between Flemings and Walloons). Some, as this example proves, will probably also be understood by viewers from other countries."

Whatever that means...I am sure my Belgian 'work husband' knows. Hugo is the Apple IT guy. Those IT folks know everything.

Of All Things to Worry About...

"Dunkin' Donuts has pulled an online ad starring Rachael Ray after conservative bloggers suggested the scarf she wore in the ad looked like a keffiyeh, a traditional headdress worn by Arab men that some associate with jihad. Margie Myers, senior VP-communications for Dunkin' Brands, said in a statement, 'Absolutely no symbolism was intended.'

NxtUp...Orange Crush

My Signature Color

"Orange is a vibrant color that brings out energy, stimulates emotion, conversation and even hunger. When I visualize orange I see nature; the sunset, flowers in bloom and turning leaves. When I taste orange, it tastes like sweet citrus or spices. It is a color that is alive, fun loving and expressive. The Color Orange is inspired by what the painter Kandinsky said when he stated that the color orange is in fact red that has been made more human by the color yellow" as written by a fellow blogger Daniellw Hirsch.
