Many members, and spectators, of the fashion industry have been quite vocal about bloggers like Tavi, Jane, and BryanBoy. It all began with a video of Tavi Gevinson reporting on Rodarte for Target along with the announcement that she would write a column in the January issue of Harpers Bazaar. Elle editor Anne Slowey and fashion writer Lesley Blume had a thing or two to say about the situation. Blume repeatedly called Gevinson a novelty, and Slowey implied that the young fashionista couldn’t be capable of writing her own material, that she must have a “Team Tavi” of support, since Gevinson didn’t maintain the same voice in [Read more…]

{Rules of PR no.32} Humility, Voltaire and Tim Tebow

Voltaire said, “Tears are the silent language of grief” and it’s safe to say Tim Tebow grieved.

When Harry Potter fought against Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter series, he fought for equality and the ability to live harmoniously between wizard and non-wizard alike.

In the BBC sci-fi drama, Being Human, the plot, in its simplest form, is about the three main characters (a vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost) aiming to live life normally, dealing with all the  struggles and emotions of an everyday human beings.
