Starbursts Prom Dress

April 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

Tara Frey is senior in High School Wisconsin, and is wearing a dress made completely out of starbursts wrappers to prom. Her and her mother embraked on this crazy journey six years ago after having nothing to do at her brothers hockey games. They started folding starbursts wrapping with the plan of making a dress for prom. The would by starbursts packages 20lbs at a time and hand them out to neighbours and friends who would give them back the un-ripped wrappers. After 5 failed attempts they finally had a successful finished product. Not only does she have her prom dress, but her mother made endless accessories. She has shoes, headbands, braclets, a purse and a vest for her date and boyfriend Zane Heinselman. When Kara was asked if she liked the dress she was very enthusiastic in saying that it was her idea too. When Zane was asked if he liked it he answered with “I don’t really have a choice”. The couple lucked out though because the theme of this years senior prom is candy land.

On Tuesday a Los Angeles judge granted complete custody to Charlie Sheens ex-wife Brooke Mueller of their two sons Bob and Max. This court was booked after Sheen contested custody and sought to terminate a child support agreement that totaled $55, 000 per month. Brooke isn’t the perfect parent either, she has been in rehab recently for her addicted of drugs and alcohol. Eyewitnesses say that Mueller was ‘glassy-eyed’ yesterday in court and had no response when the judge gave her custody. Brooke’s mother Moira is reportedly going to be looking after the twins until Brooke it out of Rehab.

April 20, 2011 § Leave a comment

After a very successful third season of Jersey Shore, with each cast member making a reported 100K an episode, the filming for the fourth season has been delayed. The Italian night clubs have denied the MTV cameras filming access because they do not want the controversial actions displayed on Jersey Shore to be taking place in their clubs and hotels. The group was scheduled to leave on April 18th to their destination os Florence ( the capital of Tuscany), but it has been delayed until May. An MTV insider says that the Producers of the show were having a hard time finding anywhere that would allowed the gang to party.

Apple- Adbusters

1) What aspect of your culture jam do you find most successful and why?

The most successful aspect hopefully is the humor behind the ad.

2) What aspect of your culture jam do you find least successful and why?

The least successful aspect of the ad would be the lack of detail. The picture of the iPod is clearly an iPod but is not as artistic as it could have been.

3) If you could do this project again, what changes would you make to improve it?

I would come up with some slogan to go along with the ad.

Starbucks – Adbuster

1) What aspect of your culture jam do you find most successful land why?

The most successful part of this ad in my opinion is the change of the Starbucks logo itself. Instead of the usual STARBUCKS at the top of the logo it is changed to BIGBUCKS. This is to place notice  on the fact that Starbucks coffee is insanely expensive.

2) What aspect of your culture jam do you find least successful and why?

The aspect that is the leat successful is that most of the Starbucks logo stayed the same, there was only one major change and someone who is not as familiar with the logo may not even notice the difference.

3) If you could do this project again, what changes would you make to improve it?

I would improve upon this culture jam by adding some kind of slogan to go along with the ideas of the ad itself, instead of just altering the logo.
