Inspiration from a cookie

08/02/2014

Can we talk about how fucking perfect this song is by OREO of all companies?  I know its a clever way for them to be able to introduce new products but there is so much more to it. Lets break it down line by line.  Please watch the video first though as all credit goes to Kraft and Oreo.

“Wonder if we tried a new thing…”

  • You mean its possible to NOT do things the way you have always done them.  Even when those things are working well for you?  FFS Oreo alone makes Kraft 2 billion dollars a year!  And here they are going to try out some new flavors.  Wonder what would happen if that philosophy was applied to peoples lives.

“… looked inside see what we can bring…”

  • Wait, you mean we can bring about these changes from inside?  We don’t have to wait for a focus group or a boss or a teacher or a parent or a preacher or anybody else to tell us that it might be time for a change?  We really can do it on our own??

“… forget who your supposed to be…”

  • You mean I don’t have to do things like I have been told ALL the time.  Its okay to think that something needs to change and then enact that change on my own?  Strange.  According to society I am supposed to do things the way they have always been done because they say so.

“… take all your crazy flavors show them off to me…”

  • Are you fucking kidding me Kraft?  You mean to say that different might actually be good? You mean that sometimes adding variety is a good thing?  This company has CLEARLY gone mad

“… if we dare to wonder about what holds us down the fears, the doubts…”

  • Literal tears at this point.  I have always liked the question “What would you do if you knew, absolutely knew, you could not fail?”; and this is, to me, is another way to ask that question by addressing those things that hold us down and getting rid of them so we cannot fail.

“… Could we spark something, watch it grow, be more wonder filled than we know.”

  • Hope.  This is what hope fucking looks like.  The mere possibility that by doing something different than what we have always done and accepting that sometimes change IS, not only good, but the best possible thing.  We just might create a society and culture that is better than the one we were born into.

 

I never thought I would be so inspired by a damn Oreo commercial but I have been and I am glad I have seen it.  Here Oreo’s; take all my damn money.  I hope to help push your profits to double what they have ever been because if you keep coming out with messages like this… maybe, just maybe, some people will change for the better.  Their entire wonderfilled movment is fucking amazing!  Check it!

And HERE is a playlist of YouTubers making music about Oreo (:

Geek Outs of the Week

23/09/2013

What did I geek out on this week?

  1. Munchkin
  2. BBQ
  3. Real History

1. Munchkin is a card based game developed my Steve Jackson.  The games can be found HERE.  What I really like about the game is the help me hurt me nature of the game.  The over all goal is to get to a natural level 10 by defeating monsters or the ever rare “Go Up A Level” Card.  You also have curse cards that will either curse you or that you can use on another player.  You have equipment cards that allow you to boost your level so you can defeat larger monsters.

It is a great game that doesn’t take too long to learn (especially if you have played RPG’s or table top games before).  Its for 3-6 players and can be very engaging.  HERE is a video to the folks over at Geek and Sundry playing the game (:\

2. BBQ – This weekend I ended up in Kansas City, MO to celebrate my grandma’s 70th Birthday.  There is one thing that is a must do whenever I visit my home town and that is to scarf down some Barbeque.  Everybody has their favorite type of BBQ.  Some like it spicy, some sweet, some like the wet sauce, and some like the dry rub.  I am not about to bash a personal choice but for me nothing does it better than the Sweet wet sauce KC is famous for.  While I was in town for 4 days I had BBQ 3 days and it was amazing!  If BBQ is not a thing in the part of the country where you grew up I would recommend giving it a try… just once

3. Real History – This semester, in my quest to become a degree holder, I am studying American History from 1865 – Present Day.  I am really enjoying the text and teacher for this class because they don’t hold back on the dark side of history.  The facts are that America has made many mistakes in the quest to become a nation and many of those we continue to make today.  The problem with this is many of those mistakes are not taught so we don’t learn from them.   It is because those things are taught that I am kind of geeking out on history this week (:

What are some of the things you are geeking out on?
