Finally, a therapy that worked


Take that, Big Pharma.


And?  So?  What up??  Also.

Who is Lulu Lemon?

Premium yoga-and-activewear manufacturer Lululemon has a new shopping bag design that’s proving not to be everyone’s cup (bag?) of tea:

In late October, the company began using shopping bags with the words “Who is John Galt?” a catchphrase from the 1957 novel Atlas Shrugged, which rails against government and advocates self-interest as a key ingredient of a better world.

The company also added the book to its staff reading list.

In recent years more companies have taken philosophical stands in their marketing, but most embrace charitable and community-oriented causes, rather than Rand’s every-man-for-himself point of view.

I think it’s a pretty cool bag, as bags go, but the reference to Atlas Shrugged put a tantric twist in the body, mind, emotions, spirit and panties of some of Lululemon’s more socialist-leaning customers:

“It’s a clash with yoga values,” said Sarah Kurchak, 29, who has about 15 pieces of Lululemon clothing in her wardrobe.

I could be wrong, but owning 15 pairs of $100 yoga pants and hoodies just might be the old telltale sign that the “Clashing With Yoga Values” train has already left the station.  Come to the dark side… we’ve got spandex…

Some Assembly Required


That was a shriek of ecstasy and joy, by the way.  Omigod

Ford is going to make the classic much loved 1965 Ford Mustang Convertible available again to the buying public. There is one little hitch… you provide the engine, transmission, interior, electronics, brakes, suspension, and trim. Ford just gives you the body.

That ’65 body isn’t much different from the sweet little ’66 I owned — and drove daily — for 15 years, until some savage asshole’s left turn wrote it off.  (I bought it back from ICBC for $300 and made over $1500 parting it out, but with every part I sold went a little piece of my broken heart.)  Best car I ever drove, and I’d buy another one in a hot second.  The thought of having one Brand New, even if I had to build it and paint it… AIIIIEEEEEEE!!!!  Quick, the smelling salts.  I grow faint…

(I know, the song’s about a Chev, but I still used to drive around with it playing on the tape deck, singing away, replacing “Chevy” with “Mustang”)
