    Rampant shoplifting leads to another Walgreens closing in S.F. — "No sooner had the clerk spoken than a man wearing a virus mask walked in, emptied two shelves of snacks into a bag, then headed back for the door."

    David Fincher’s House of Whoops

    David Fincher’s House of Whoops

    Opportunity: There's no "I" in "mistake."


    Let's be honest. If you had to do it all over again? Yeah, you'd probably do even worse. I mean. Look at you.


    No, seriously, it's fine. Well. It's not "fine," but it is universal, and that's ultimately where the big money is.


    So, the question becomes, what if you could do worse better? Again. You won't, but that's not the point.


    The point is, you're ready to commit to change, or at least the appearance of commitment.


    But, you won't figure that out until you land on the big balloon in Act III. But, let's not get ahead of ourselves.


    How would you feel about a face tattoo of a foot? Or a foot tattoo of a murder tear? Or a night on a futon that practically screams "hand stuff?"


    Let me start over.


    Hi. Have you ever avoided a mistake that, in retrospect, you really wish you'd made? Yeah. Also: sorry about your contact lens.


    Also, also: sorry about Austin.


    Just…sorry.

    Big Money

    Big Money

    Opportunity: Improve the quality and reliability of online ratings systems with the assistance of little Philipe and a VHS tape of the pain you've caused.


    There’s a 2½ star Popeye’s in Tracy, and a 5-star Taco Bell in Pacifica with thousands of ratings, but who’s rating the raters? Perhaps reviewers will think twice if they know that they might have to repeat those comments to the proprietor’s sad child (rental or leasing options available).


    Go ahead and unzip your wallet. Is it full of receipts? Open a Window™ and let those money ghosts fly away—you never know what ID card or student photo is waiting just around the corner.


    Your keyring: do you still have the keys to the car you drove as a toddler? Go ahead and slide those off. Sure you might break a fingernail—hold onto that, it’s a happy memory of your newfound freedom you might want to bequeath to a friend one day.


    Grab your satchel full of California quarters and your wallet full of tiny bills. Let's mint a new you.

    History Mall

    History Mall

    Opportunity: an immersive journey inside of another immersive journey.


    When Hobbes first stipulated that Man's primal instinct naturally reverts to a state of mall against mall, he probably had no idea how prescient he barely was.


    But, what if History could also be a lively if self-referential retail and fast-casual dining experience? What if, indeed, that food court were presided over by a period-appropriate "judge" who deliberately attracted fleas and never broke kayfabe to admit that Wu-Tang Clan even exists?


    Well, steel your guts and pack your butts, because your reality is about to get deeply augmented by some really upsetting contextual tableaux.


    Like it or not, you've got the music in you. At least for now.

I generally hate fun and do not “LOL” often, but these guys make me do it and it’s a very pleasant sensation.
