Portal Posters (link roundup)




I don't understand the message but these portal-like posters for the International Theatre School Festival are certainly eye-catching. Ads by Arc/Leo Burnett Amsterdam.

And a few more links:

1. Well-written summary of the stupidity of Zicam and other homeopathic cures. Via.

2. North Carolina threatened to tax affiliate sales, so Amazon decided to preemptively terminate affiliate accounts for North Carolina residents. Hawaii and California may be next. (First time I've been glad that I don't make any money from Amazon sales.) Via.

3. Shockingly racist vintage ad for the New Yorker (featuring blackface).

4. Sir Francis Drake Lego minifig by Michael Jasper. Via.

*Previously: The strange history of racist spokescharacters.

*Buy Lego minifigs at eBay.

  1. I dunno what's in Zicam, but the stuff works wonders for a stuffy nose. Like Vics Vapor Rub to the max - the spray mist anyways. Can't vouch for any of their other products.

  2. Hopefully it's not destroying your sense of smell along the way.
