It wouldn’t be Christmas without Lego and Star Wars. And from next Christmas we will have to add Pantone to that list whose line of holiday ornaments will be unleashed in 2012 (assuming we’re all stil around to celebrate Christmas next year what with the end of the world and all that). I’m obsessed with Pantone, I can’t deny it. On the one hand I’m impressed with their infinite brand extension, and on the other I’m like WTF? Must be fun to work there, dreaming up this stuff.
Via the New York Daily News: “Cops in Vandalia, north of Dayton, say Terry Trent, 44, was high on the designer drug when he broke into a family’s home, put up some Christmas decorations and then plopped down on a couch to watch television. ‘The candle was lit on the coffee table, the television was on and very loud,’ the homeowner told the station. An 11-year-old boy who lives in the house found the strung-out stranger. ’He had said to my son, “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I’ll get my things and go.”’ Trent was charged with burglary and held in a county lockup. Cops say he has a history of drug charges.” Now, it’s just my humble opinion, but if more people did bath salts, the world would be a happier place, don’t you think?
