Attention, shoppers: What the f*ck is wrong with YOU?

Posted by stylebitch on December 1, 2008

A man trampled to death in a WalMart store on Black Friday – at first I simply couldn’t believe it. Has the world gone completely insane? Is a bargain already worth more than a human life? Read the depressing story in its entirety here:

NEW YORK — Police are reviewing surveillance videos of a
post-Thanksgiving shopper stampede that trampled a suburban Wal-Mart
worker to death, but they acknowledge it may be difficult to bring
criminal charges.

Nassau County police and Wal-Mart Stores Inc. said no new
information was available Saturday on the employee’s brutal death,
which rattled shoppers even as they flocked to the Valley Stream store
a day later.

“It felt a little freakish,” customer
Ellie Berhun, 48, told the Daily News. “Some man lost his life because
a VCR was on sale? Please. It’s just too sad for words.”

Police said the temporary worker, Jdimytai Damour, was mowed down as
about 2,000 bargain-hunters surged into the store at Friday’s 5 a.m.
opening, leaving a metal portion of the door frame crumpled like an
accordion.

Other workers were knocked to the ground as they tried to rescue
Damour, and customers simply stepped over him and kept shopping even as
the store announced it was closing because of the death, police and
witnesses said.

At least four other people, including a woman eight months pregnant,
were taken to hospitals for observation or treatment for minor
injuries. The store, about 20 miles east of Manhattan, closed for
several hours but reopened Friday afternoon.

The day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday because it has
traditionally marked the point when a throng of shoppers pushes stores
into profitability for the year.

Bentonville, Ark.-based Wal-Mart said it added staffers and outside
security workers and put up barricades to try to prepare for the crush.
But police spokesman Detective Lt. Michael Fleming said Friday that
security was inadequate for a scene he called “utter chaos.”

Criminal charges are possible, but identifying anyone in the store’s videos may prove difficult, Fleming said.

Damour, 34, came from a temporary agency and was doing maintenance work at the store, Wal-Mart said.

A woman reported being trampled by overeager customers at a Wal-Mart
opening Friday in Farmingdale, about 15 miles east of Valley Stream,
Suffolk County police said. She suffered minor injuries but finished
shopping before filling the report, police said.

Items on sale at the Valley Stream Wal-Mart included a Samsung
50-inch Plasma HDTV for $798, a Bissel Compact Upright Vacuum for $28,
a Samsung 10.2 megapixel digital camera for $69 and DVDs such as “The
Incredible Hulk” for $9. (Source)

Als Werbung noch mutig war :-)

Posted by stylebitch on October 28, 2008

Ich sag da mal lieber nix dazu …

Gefunden hab’ ich das hier. Wer Lust auf eine TV-Serie hat, die in der guten alten Zeit der Werbung spielt, sollte sich mal “Mad Men” anschauen. Allein das geile Sixties-Styling ist ein Grund zum Dranbleiben!

Und hier meine Lieblings-Ads von damals:

Update: Show-Line-up des Schwulensenders TIMM

Posted by stylebitch on October 28, 2008

Ab 1. November (stylebitch berichtete) wird’s kuschlig warm im TV, dann geht Deutschlands erster Huschen-Sender TIMM ans Netz. Ob er so gut und innovativ wird – und so lange around sein wird – wie LOGO (powered by MTV) weiß natürlich noch niemand, die erste Programmbroschüre, die mir aus diesem Heftchen entgegenflatterte, las sich aber recht vielversprechend.

Neben den bereits in diesem Beitrag erwähnten Serien geht (yesyesyesyes!!!) Miss Kathy Griffin an den Start, wer ihr “Life on the D-List” verpasst ist selbst schuld! Außerdem dabei: “Noah’s Arc” (mit diesem Schnuckel), “Queer as Folk” (leider die etwas flachere US-Version), die Airline-Comedy “Mile High” sowie “Blondes Gift” (als Babsi Schöneberger noch originell und witzig war) und “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” (luvit). Filme wie “The Line of Beauty” und “Beautiful Boxer” (schluchz!) runden den ersten Programmwurf ab, wie gut und sehenswert die eigenproduzierten News-Formate sind, well we’ll see.

Ich drücke den Machern jedenfalls alle manikürten Däumchen!
