"On your last trip did you discover what the Earth people eat?"

I like the sound they make when they laugh.

I haven't actually tried it yet, but . . .

Dark, disturbing, with a haunting finish. This is why coffee was invented.

"Care for a cup of Wilkins coffee?"

A rare glimpse of Kermit the Frog in his sociopathic years:

Today I learned from a friend that one of my neighbors has an unhealthy preoccupation with ordering this stuff off eBay.

"Breakfast has been taken over by the machines."

"There's a meat substitute and there's a cheese substitute. Ever think there one day might be a human substitute?"

Support non-human rights!

I'm more than happy to help out with viral marketing, provided it's good viral marketing.

I realize the whole ironic Lovecraft thing is pretty much played . . .

. . . but occasionally an exception emerges from the tenebrous mire of the collective digital unconscious to elicit big laughs.

I might as well take this opportunity to remind loyal readers that I share my birthday (Aug. 20) with Lovecraft. Neat, huh?

(Thanks again to Justin!)

"We have synthesized knowledge and created a beer for the new millennium."

Homeless robot

A humorous ad featuring a robot who probably wishes the Singularity hadn't hit.

"Come a little closer and I'll tell you my story."

Is there anything Cartrivision can't do?

They Entered Gamespace to Refill Their Neuro-Drives

No it's not a spaceship, or a game show set, or even the backdrop to a J-pop music video. It's an immersive advertisement for gaming.

Called the flatflat store, the space was created in a very long, narrow space by Sako Architects to sell game products from NHN Japan. Visitors to the store get instant access to hangame, an online games portal, and, a games portal for mobiles. Walk in and use one of the store's big-screen interfaces to the portal, or just open up your mobile device and start playing.

All well and good, but I don't see an espresso machine anywhere . . .

They just don't make commercials like this anymore.
