Tattoo ads turn people into ‘walking billboards’

Lookie here...

NEW YORK - What does Angelina Jolie have in common with Joseph Stalin and Thomas Edison as well as two out of every five Americans between the ages of 26 and 40?

They all have tattoos.

Once seen as a silent cry of rebellion, tattoos now posess a status so firmly mainstream that advertisers are using them to market everything from tires and shoes to wine and energy drinks. That has its downside, though. The more acceptable tattoos become, the more they lose their edginess — and their value as advertising.

hello again...or should i say, bonjour?

Well my friends. I'm sorry for the hiatus, but there really hasn't been a whole lotta running going on. except for the crazy reach the beach run...but that is a tale for another post.

anyway...the next marathon season is upon us, and this time the show goes to paris. paris in the springtime, now really, could there be anything more lovely?

it is also a way to get myself off my lazy butt and back to do goodin'. i've been feeling a little itchy lately...but not to mislead you. life has been really good to me. i found a great apartment, an amazing boy, and work has been busy but really rewarding. but i start feeling anxious when i'm not doing some good out there, and i haven't really been.

and so, courir fille courir it is.

more soon.
