From someone’s (http://secretsthatsell.tumblr.com/post/97524473/via-farm1-static-flickr-com-im-doing-my-media) media (ethics?) class:

This Benetton ad was offensive to many readers. Yet its message —that race should not matter—certainly is not offensive. Why do you think the ad was so controversial and, eventually, pulled from distribution? Would you have pulled it?

Uh, no, I would not have.  And it was controversial because we are living within the confines of antiquated thinking.  Average people thinking average old thoughts questioning nothing criticizing everything and keeping things the same.

cupcakes

I have been finding so many wonderful pictures on the internet these days.  Mostly from tumblr blogs such as pocketmonsterd, lunaticpill, kari-shma, and unicornology.  To my delightful surprise many of these pictures are of cupcakes! I love cupcakes. So I’m going to post cool cupcakes from time to time.  Just because they make me smile and maybe you will too.  I also have lots of pictures of giraffes, old school stuff from my childhood, Paris ( I LOVE Paris!), nature, dogs…..  So I’ll be posting pics of stuff I like just because I like it and maybe you will too.

This is the most stunning cupcake photo yet and a good one to start with I think….

This also goes in the “old school stuff from my childhood” category.  I was really into Pac-Man and even more into Ms. Pac-Man.  And I was pretty good at it too.  Especially at one of those sit-down table-top versions.  Fun and Yum!
