Call Max!! Max Clifford gets his pants pulled down on camera

Looks like someone has finally turned to tables on “PR-guru” and “arsehole extraordinaire” Max Clifford.

The makers on the new film called Star Suckers have released a viral to promote the film. Here’s the blurb:

“We were worried that by catching Max Clifford on undercover camera boasting about the things he does to protect his clients, we might have lost him some business. When the film was released back in October, we wrote to Max telling him what we had done, and his immediate response was to call infamous law firm Carter Ruck and threaten us with an injunction. But if his clients like Simon Cowell found out their their publicist was mouthing off about them like this, it might hit Max’s bottom line. So we made a little advert for Max to help him drum up some more business.”

I’m going to try write something about Starsuckers soon, but you can see the trailer here. Looks like it’s one to watch –

Unlink Your Feeds – A Manifesto


You need to unlink your feeds.

I understand why you did it. I’ve made the same mistake myself. But it’s hurting your friends, it’s hurting you, and it’s hurting the Internet. You need to stop.

You need to stop automatically dumping your feeds from one account into another.

Look, I know it’s tempting. New service, not sure how you’ll keep up with the ever demanding maw and there’s the “import your content” button, right there in the sign-up process. A quick trip through a login screen or an OAuth link and there you are: All your stuff automatically aggregated into a new one-stop-shop of the genius things that pop out of your head.

No muss, no fuss, right?

This is an illusory solution. It’s a false idol. It’s contributing to noise pollution on the Internet and the only people it helps are company execs who want to make spurious claims about “user engagement”. It’s diminishing the quality of your output and of others’ experiences.

You need to unlink your feeds and put a tiny bit more effort into using each service for what it is.

Awesome “Big Head” Gaming Mode Self Portrait

This Papercraft Self Portrait was made by Eric Testroete as his Halloween costume last weekend.

Eric is a 3D artist in the Vancouver game industry and he was inspired by the big-head mode seen in videogames. You can find more photos in this Flickr set.

Have a look at the whole project here.

This thing has lit Twitter up today. People love it.

Fellow gluer Dom blogged about it too but found this cool ‘low res’ halloween costume. Extra points.


Fifty People, One Question

I’ve was watching a few short films last night, but these from Crush + Lovely really grabbed my attention.

The idea is simple.

Go to a place. Ask fifty people the same question. Film their responses.

New Orleans
Fifty People, One Question: New Orleans from Benjamin Reece on Vimeo.

Fifty People, One Question: Brooklyn from Crush + Lovely on Vimeo.

New York
Fifty People, One Question: New York from Crush + Lovely on Vimeo.

Fifty People, One Question: London from Crush + Lovely on Vimeo.

I could get all deep about how different we all are, what it says about aspirations, cultural differences, and all that gubbins but you’ll know all that if you’ve watched them.
