Crackunit is Dead

OK guys I’ve got some bad news and some good news.

I’ll leave it to you to decide which is which.

News 1 – That’s it. I’m done here. I’m no longer going to update I’ve had enough. I need something different.

News 2 – is open for business. I’m really excited about everything this could be. Come visit.

You might all think that I’m having some kind of mid-life blogging crisis – and you’re probably spot-on. But I try and explain a little bit about why I’ve decided to do this in my first post over there. I hope you’ll understand. Or at least humor me a bit.

I have no idea what this will do to search engine rankings or any of that jazz. And frankly I don’t care right now. I’m up for the challenge of getting things up and running again with a new sense of energy and enthusiasm – to heck with all this baggage. I’m freeeeeeeeeeeee. Or something like that.

Playstation ‘Dealer’ Roach Ad

I was tidying up and I came across this.

Sometime in the early 90s Sony put out this advertisement printed on perforated card. It appears to show a shady dealer offering up a Playstation controller. Upon further investigation it turns out that the size of the cardboard perforations is perfect for constructing makeshift filters for what Cannabis smokers would call ‘joints’.

What were they thinking?!?

Note that my copy of the ad is completely unripped.

Jazz & Pop Schallplattenhüllen 1978

I’ve fallen in love with this poster. But I can only find it for super ripoff prices. It’s by a Swiss dude (obviously) called Markus Bruggisser.

Polaroid Lady Gaga Launch

I don’t know about you, but this looks really bad to me. The presentation is a bloody shambles and the product looks terrible. The glasses look totally foolish:

And isn’t the printer just a bigger more handbaggy looking version of the Zink printers from a couple of years ago?
