Rough start for Starbucks

Filed under: Uncategorized — sdp04 @ 8:49 am

Variety.com – Rough start for Starbucks
Starbucks said it didn’t go further and create a themed Frappuccino, for example, because it didn’t want to overly commercialize the tie-in.

Good to hear. I’d hate to be heard ordering a tall, non-fat, triple whipped, double twisted, single belched chocolate covered Arctic Tale latte.  This whole Starbucks as pusher thing kills me. I hate it at the fast food chains as well, but at least they are pushing to kids. Starbucks is pushing to grown-ups that surely can make an informed decision without having to walk into a coffee house and get assaulted by plush toys.

ABC News: Love it or Leave it — Record Number of Americans Flee to Canada

Just goes to prove my point in their taste of music.  Americans are jealous of Canada and are coming here in record numbers.

I welcome you.

This is a fantastic idea. When you consider that almost everything on your desk or around you at the office is a “to-do”, why not show what you have done!!

Did Avril Lavigne Steal “Girlfriend?”

YouTube – Did Avril Lavigne Steal “Girlfriend?”

Well, you have to admit that they are pretty similar. At the same time, though, how often are you found humming some what is thought to be random ditty in your head and then you can’t place it?  Possible here. Do you really think Avril or any of her “people” were checking out some esoteric 70s tunes and decided to steal it?  I highly doubt the track is available on itunes or Limewire…..

Somewhere in Toronto, Johnny Borodenko is either very very happy….or he is as pissed as me that a classic has been butchered.
