Bloggers vs. Bailout, 'Human' Ice Cream, Digital Marketers Wrist-Slapped ... by Eyeblaster?!

- Last night Steve Hall hit Nokia Theater for Adobe's Battle of the Bands (photos here). Later he ran into Barbarian Group, which brought him a-frolicking to a hip hop club. Steve has all the fun.

- Guinness World Records taps greenfield media to manage its 3D book campaign. You'll need 3D specs to get the full experience from the ads, which run from Oct. 6 to Dec. 25 in the United Kingdom and United States.

- Blogging taxpayers aren't keen on this whole "Wall Street bailout" thing: "[We] have yet to see any online evidence of organic support for the Paulson proposal. Instead, what's going on may be the largest flowering of civic dissent since the antiwar protests of 2002-2003, but with a [bipartisan] twist." Our own online digging corroborates that (HuffPo! Michelle Malkin! YouTube junkies!), but Pew says 57 percent of the public favors the bailout. Confusing.

- Dara and Sara: Barbie for Iranian patri-tots. (You know, like teeny little patriots.) Via.

- If that pint of Cherry Garcia tastes uncomfortably intimate, maybe it's because there's breastmilk in it. Just another fun idea from PETA.

- 4mations.tv: YouTube for animators? Lupus Films and Aardman Animations are behind it.

- Gawker takes the liberty of repositioning Goldman Sachs.

- Brandable cursors. What, shocked?

- Faith Popcorn on the Recession Culture.

- "World of Office Sports" -- new web series by Twix. Part of its "Need a Moment?" campaign. Men 18-34 are the target. It's stupid. Much preferred the Choose Your Own Adventure thing.

- Rich media firm Eyeblaster is running an irony-soaked effort, "Tough Love," to encourage digital marketers to act more responsibly. Ad work by Mortar, which agreed "digital is ready to grow up" and "rowdy campaigns" must be "tamed." Walk the talk! Eyeblaster's spin on rich media can be cool, but there have been times when I couldn't get to my content because of some unsolicited, um, eye-blasting.

We've recently introduced TH!NKS which allow anyone to make an animation in a matter of minutes. Chuckle potion in the making.
