Thursday Miscellany

<span onclick=Timbuk2" height="325" width="500">


The folks at San Francisco bag maker
Timbuk2 have extended their custom build range with a market tote for all you yoga loving gym bunnies and a laptop messenger for all us wage slaves.

For what their worth (and Internet tracking is less advance than the industry would have you believe) netimperative have a chart of the world's 15 most trafficked web properties courtesy of comScore World Metrix.

PRMoves are having a networking event at Ping Pong, 48 Eastcastle Street, W1 on Tuesday 7th November. In their own words: It will be a chance to catch up with us plus indulge in free drinks and nibbles. Also we will be giving you the chance to grill Emma Smith, Assistant Editor of InGear/Sunday Times on the ‘mysteries of journalism’. Let us know if you can come!

I would have hoped that many of the PR people there would already have a good understanding of the mysteries of journalism - but hey ho the market must be tough so any kind of candidate will do ;-).

Defected Records have teamed up with Mark Finkelstein to resuscitate Strictly Rhythm records according to Earplug. Once one of the most cutting edge New York record labels Strictly disintegrated in creative bankruptcy around the time that Warner Music bought into the label. Where they had once broke artists like Josh Wink, George Morel and Masters at Work and Aly-Us; post Michael Moog - That Sound they ended up churning out bland me-to tracks.

Good luck to them, I met Strictly's famous A&R supremo Gladys Pizarro in a house party in Hampstead a number of years ago and she seemed suprisingly well-adjusted compared to the usual music industry casualties that I've met.
