This is unbelievable.
Saw this last night on Iron Chef countdown of the Top 10 most memorable moments. Isn't it so neat?? It's sushi by Morimoto, with the special ingredient being asparagus which is in the center and then white asparagus in the corners designed to look like a stained glass window.
It was brought to my attention yesterday that I had left some of the best commercials off my list of good liquor/beer commercials... one reader even calling it a fatal flaw not to include these Kettle One commercials:
Kettle One- "Bar"
Kettle One "Table"
But, I personally think as long as we are going to be putting the focus so intently on gentlemen, my biggest flaw was not to include these:
Dos Equis-# 1
Dos Equis- #2
Because who doesn't wish their personality was so magnetic they were unable to carry credit cards?
I'll stay thirsty.
You know what bothers me? That Chase commercial where the husband and wife are talking about what you can spend your Chase points on. Well, really it's the husband telling the wife all the fun things you could do, like taking a trip to here or there and riding on a boat and yadda yadda. And then she says "we can't use the points on a vacation." And he says, "yes we can, we can use them on anything." And then she says "I know" and like opens up her arms to show him the lame dress she has on. And he smiles, but I know he doesn't mean it. And it really just bothers me that she would just go by that dress and use up allll those points that could have taken them on a trip just to buy a lame dress. A) it would be one thing if the dress was amazing and B) it's just so selfish. Don't you think? And then, to top it all off, the Chase voice comes in and says "Chase what matters." And I just think they got it all backwards. Or, I get the point they're making and I'm sure it's effective for some people, but I just think it's rude. And I had to tell someone.
But, you know what are so great these days?? Liquor and beer commercials. The Jack Daniels commercial about the No. 7, the Blue Moon commercial about Artistically Crafted beer with that yummy juicy orange slice (of which I now am acutely craving in addition to a milkshake) and the Johnnie Walker- Walk On commercials... They're so awesome. Oh and that Grey Goose commercial that I posted somewhere on my blog a couple of weeks ago where they're playing golf. Those people did not get anything backwards, they win.
Here are links to some:
Jack Daniels- No. 7
Johnnie Walker Keep Walking
Thirsty anyone? Thought so.
So looking forward to seeing A Single Man, and maybe picking up a copy of the book.
Read the NYTimes article, it's pretty good and will get you excited to see the movie.
Regardless of content it will no doubt be as stylish and fun to watch as Mr. Ripley.
