Try hugs not drugs button campaign – the teachers walked around putting their arms between the grades 4-5 students as they danced, abruptly nudging either sober 8-10 year old gender an arm’s length apart from each-other. Ecstasy is mainstream now. Try drugs for hugs.
Pacman – eat as many as you can
Blue and red striped bounce ball – given to school age children to play with in the early eighties. Pepsi connection?
Pepsi = is pep
People who believe that they are not succumb to advertising only need think back upon their childhood. Church, government and third generation corporations are currently commencing their forth, 20-30 year stint together. 😉
Widgets Lab played the ding ding ding N.B.C. a-ling to me. I went back and checked again and there it chimed once more. Sound pollution advertising. I won’t be returning. I don’t care who owns you. Repetitive jingles without user choice installed. Not.
UPDATE – Thank you Derek for changing the Gabbly chat window (causing the chime) to inCirles which has no sound.
While searching for this pacman widget to ad to the original post I was sent on a link chase to find this here yellow circle pill chomping man. It took 3 click through’s to FIND the pacman widget. As I am editing this paragraph, the NBC fucking ding-a-ling has rung
thrice five more times. Give your users a choice to listen Ã la ding-a-ling. And please provide a direct link to the widget download page.
UPDATE – This embedded Pacman game widget above is one Derek found without a click trail to embed into your blog. Thank you.
I went looking for you in a Pac man widget Google search because I had remembered seeing it on your blog. I was prepared to continue clicking through the search results until I recognized your name, WidgetsLab.com. And I did so.
Viral my ass. That is just gross. The widget is cool but the search and destroy after is dehumanizing. Firefox prevented 3 pop-up windows for me when I arrived to the actual code needed to download from http://www.bunchball.com/widgets.html#83366255184444991941002338794640. To get this widget one needs to find, click and then become a member of BunchBall in that order to download it on top of the previous click throughs. In total from Widgetslab to BunchBall I had to scan, read and click 6 times.
All I wanted was the pac-man widget and to throw you a thank you link. This widget would have added some irony to the suggestive conspiracies. A post can evolve into many ideas when one is researching, following the link trail.
I was still puzzled because I have never heard the notes G-E-C on handstruck Deagan chimes – they were usually C-A-F. Then I came across a recording of a remote broadcast from April 27, 1933, where the NBC chimes – high-pitched G-E-C – are manually sounded halfway through the broadcast.
