25 Really Creative Floor Sticker Ads Jun 18, 2012 Below you will find a collection of creative, provocative and sometimes funny floor sticker ads that caught our eye. It’s fascinating to see the ideas ad agencies can come up with when they are not constrained by the restrictive borders of a magazine or billboard. If you know of any other really creative sidewalk, elevator or floor ads that we missed, please let us know in the comments! If there’s enough maybe a follow-up post will be in order :) If you enjoyed this post, the Sifter highly recommends: The 20 Best Cartoons Of The 90's The 90's were a golden age of cartoons. We had a blast putting together the 20 best, and we're sure this list will inspire some discussion. Our only criteria was that the cartoon had to start in the 90's, meaning a couple of very late in the decade entries were still eligible. We did make a small exception for one show, but we think you'll agree it was warranted. Enjoy! 20.

Top 8 Most Overused Horror Cliches in Movies Throughout film history certain conventions and themes are constantly reused no matter the time or place. The one genre that’s stayed consistent with the same formula throughout the years is horror. It doesn’t matter if it’s 1965 or 2007, the same stuff pops up in everything. The virgin girl will always prevail, while her slutty friend gets killed. There will never be cell phone reception when you need it, and somebody will always forget to lock the door behind them. Take a look at some of the top 8 most overused horror cliche’s of all time… 8. Perhaps I should clarify this by saying the female virgin never dies in horror movies. 7. Why don’t people lock their doors? 6. In the more suspense driven horror films and thrillers the bad guys are a lot more articulate than Jason Voorhies or Michael Myers. 5. Have you ever watched someone get stabbed or knocked the f*ck out in a movie, only to have them regain consciousness and disappear within a matter of seconds? 4. 3. 2. 1.

Top 10 British Comedy Series Movies and TV Some of the best comedy around has been British Comedy. The classic one liners, the funny stories and the bizarre slapstick. This list will not just be my opinion, although a few personal favorites will pop up. Starting from the very early moments of comedy, to some newer moments, here are the top 10 British comedy series. I think I will start this list with one of the most recent series. One of the first series that I know to have adopted the Point of View camera style. A program with very little dialogue, yet full of physical humor. Monty Python’s Flying Circus Possibly one of the most influential television series of all time, spanning four hilarious films and the only sketch show on my list. Probably the most known series on this list, and it is no surprise why. The Royle Family is one of the only programs in which nothing really happens. The perfect example of typical life in later teenage years. That’s right, The Office is the greatest British comedy of all time.

The 30 Best Films of the Decade 10. Big Fish Painting the 1980s in black and white, Tim Burton made his mark on this decade by discovering primary colors. Every corner of imagination is explored here in a film that has made me cry every single time even after 15 viewings. The magical realism and tall tales act as a mirror to how we all view life – a little more inflated, a little more fantastical than it really is. 9. Most quotable movie of the decade number two, and the movie that was the precursor to the Judd Apatow/Adam McKay takeover of great comedy that followed. 8. It’s a fortunate thing in this art form that audiences often get to see a genius at his best. 7. Despite art being completely subjective, you are wrong if you don’t like this film. 6. Back in 2000, back in the 1970s, Cameron Crowe took us all on a journey across the country in a bus. 5. He was a simple oil man. 4. You can’t argue with the facts. 3. 2. I double dog dare you to say anything negative about this film. 1. Admit it.

Fashion Inspired by The Big Bang Theory No column called Geek Chic would be complete without an inspiration post on The Big Bang Theory, which is practically television’s love letter to the geek world. It’s a show that manages to simultaneously mock and celebrate the enthusiastic obsessions that define geekiness. What more could a girl ask for? Before we begin, I just want to reiterate that my goal is not to recreate costumes but to interpret the characters’ styles into wearable looks for college girls. Know Your Geek: About The Big Bang Theory The CBS sitcom, which first aired in 2007, revolves around the lives of four socially awkward Caltech scientists and Penny, the pretty girl who lives next door.

This site is not affiliated with MarketWatch. With Steve Jobs’ passing, I first want to extend prayers and condolences to his family and loved ones. I also wanted to pause for a moment to reflect on some of his and his greatest company’s greatest hits. I often tell people in an interview when they ask me about Apple and how I bought it at and told my subscribers to buy it at $7 back in March 20003 that without that call, I’m not sure I’d even be in the studio with them. Two other notes about Steve Jobs that came into my mind as I reflected upon him and my relationship with him as such a long-term investor in Apple. Like most analysts I’m reading, this sad ending to the stewardship and chairmanship of Steve Jobs at Apple doesn’t change my overall stance or bullishness for the stock. And without further ado, here’s the Top 10 Best Apple Commercials of All Time.
