Let Someone Else Remember For You

Let Someone Else Remember For You

You look at your calendar and realize you’ve forgotten your mother-in-law’s birthday. You jump online and send her a crappy e-card that she won’t be able to open anyway because she still uses dial-up. And even if she can get to it, it’s going...

How the West Was Drooled All Over

Now that cowboys have emerged as the hot subculture du jour, marketers are jumping all over it. (“Ballad of High Noon” ring tone, anyone?) But the most appropriate use of the cowboy motif as far as we’re concerned is on gifts for little boys. Check...

Svanity Fair

Snap On, Snap Off

Why is it when you finally get around to buying clothes and room duds that support your kids’ interests (read: feed their obsessions), they have already moved onto something else? You end up being out countless dollars, and up about 14 Winnie-the-Pooh shirts and...
