Growing up I loved eating cereal. Lots of cereal! Cereal brought me tremendous joy, especially, the brands that my parents forbid me to eat. Many of these cereals have left the planet and are now only a memory. Here is one of my old faves, the curious Pink Panther Flakes and Nerds cereal because, it’s such a ridiculous tribute to a candy – which most cereal resembles anyway!
As more and more companies layoff employees, the flotsam of past marketing efforts like t-shirt schwag heads for the local thrift shop. When a previous Santa Cruz company I worked for imploded, they donated their marketing t-shirts a local shelter. For months I would see street characters wearing their Lutris shirts on Pacific Ave in downtown Santa Cruz.
Now as Microsoft lays off thousands, their shirts are appearing in the Seattle area thrifts.
I was wondering if this was going to happen in SF. A lot of Gaza protesters were riding BART to SF on Saturday morning. Seeing the two groups together would have been interesting. I was taking BART from Oakland to SF on this morning so Dru could pick me up at the Balboa station so we could get the heck out of town. Everyone had pants.
