Link roundup

1. Roger Ebert says, "'The Green Hornet is an almost unendurable demonstration of a movie with nothing to be about."

2. Promotional video for Thomas Allen's paper cuts.

3. An assertion that Starbuck's new logo, with its softer, rounder shapes, will be "more acceptable in interdependent and collectivist cultures--often found in Asian countries, such as India and China--than in Western countries, which tend to have a more independent or individualistic culture." (The article doesn't actually show any logos from companies popular in those countries.) Via.

*Buy Thomas Allen: Uncovered at Amazon.

  1. Thanks for the information about Starbuck's new logo. It's actually pretty related to what I studied in my MA thesis - I was pleasantly surprised to see it here :)

  2. We saw the Green Hornet yesterday, and it was an unbelievably AWESOME movie -- very entertaining, both for comedy and action. We really cannot understand what the critics saw, but surely it was not the same movie.

  3. No kidding? The ads looked terrible to me, and I'm not a Seth Rogen fan.
