It’s also a savvy attempt to build hype (hey, we’re writing about it right now!) as well as a means of ensuring that visitors return to K’naan’s web HQ again and again.K’naan’s no stranger to remixing himself: the track If Rap Gets Jealous originally appeared on his Dusty Foot Philosopher debut, but he included a revamped version on Troubadour, likely because he knew that incorporating massive guitar riffs from Metallica’s Kirk Hammett might help score a crossover hit. There’s certainly an opening there to throw in some other depressing anecdotes from regular folks, and the lyrics are lacklustre enough to assuage quality control concerns (“Damn, no magic from David Blaine, no painter to paint this pain/no Morgan Freeman to narrate the shame”).But the Toronto based hip hop MC has made a name for himself as an original voice based on his dense, descriptive rhymes. That’s largely because he mines his rich autobiography (a childhood spent surviving violence and civil war in Somalia; a brief adolescent flirtation with gangs in the GTA suburb of Scarborough) to present snapshots of real life experiences that are as honest as they are vividly, poetically detailed.
My point of view on CONVERSUASION is that great brands resolve cultural tensions, sparking conversations, but it all about creating tribal ideas, ideas that people are inspired to rapidly mobilise around. Another dimension is collaborative creativiety, in that brands need to be far more open source in their ideas, and let the community help shape the outcomes of those ideas in real time. Conversuasion is not about beginning and ends of campaigns, they are either about digital platforms that deliver amazing utility eg: Nike + Football or they are about the community shaping the outcome of the ideas in ongoing narratives.
Even worse than gag clothing gifts for dads are some of the clothes that givers actually expect dad to wear that cause him extraordinary discomfort as a result. Sure, traditional dad fashion may be embarrassing (black socks and sandals anyone?), but it even more embarrassing to see a blissfully uncool, out of it dad try to pull off donning the latest trends, be it skinny jeans, floral prints, or whatever else someone deems as at the moment. Or rather, to see a dad being forced to wear such clothing because one of his children decides it in his best interest..
It so easy to give up after being defeated. But what isn easy, is getting back up and trying again whether it may take a day or a year. Betterforit encourages women to active, take on new challenges and conquer personal goals. Good judge must be an umpire, a neutral and impartial arbiter who favours no litigant or policy, Kavanaugh said in prepared opening remarks. Am not a pro plaintiff or pro defendant judge. I am not a pro prosecution or pro defence judge.
