“Now one and one is two
Two and two is four
I’m heavy loaded, baby
I’m booked, I gotta go
Cryin’ baby
Honey don’t you want to go?
Back to the land of California
To my sweet home Chicago”

– Robert Johnson

It’s Pink Friday

December 21 2018

In one of our recent Essays and Yarns, the suggestion was made that some people are living under a rock. As it turns out, the space under the rock has company.


While wandering into the local Drug Store looking for a new comb, walking down the ladies isle was spotted one of the most amazing product designs ever seen. The Nicki Minaj Pink Friday Parfum. It is evident that there are things going on in the world that have completely escaped our understanding.

Just to be clear on this, the bottle design is absolutely captivating. Who would have thought that a bottle with a gold head covered in Pink hair on top of a brassiere and transparent torso filled with fragrant liquid would be anything but awkward?

We love it. As a matter of fact, we wish we had a bust of Mr. Swift that was an equally compelling product to put on a shelf somewhere.

Perhaps we’ll start working on one.
