I Love… Whaaa?

by San Diego Shooter

I’m not an expert on the history of advertising, but I think it’s pretty safe to say that the I♥NY campaign is one of the most memorable and effective tourist campaigns ever created. Conceived in 1977, the imagery is still used today to promote the city and the state.

LederHOTTT!

Living in Thüringen, one is not exposed to either Lederhosen or Dirndl, the image of clothing that the world has of Germany.

Random Tuesday Today Thoughts

I know that Snooker in Berlin participates in the weekly Random Tuesday Thoughts—and to be different, I’m doing it on Wednesday—but only because I have a crap load of thoughts to get out. I could try and break down the thoughts into more complete individual blog posts, but none of these thoughts really deserve that […]
