Things We Saw Today: The Umbrella Corporation Cleans Up Their Act


Maybe zombies just need a good scrub. Umbrella soap, “Rainy, salty mist green notes made up of basil, green leaf and ozone notes.” Sounds about right. (via Luxury Lane Soap

  • Speaking of zombies, Philadelphia students recently did a flash mob performance of Michael Jackson’s Thriller to protest the district’s plan of closing 37 public schools. (via Yahoo)
  • Newark Mayor Cory Booker has a new jewelry line. Wait for it. He has bracelets made from confiscated weapons which are then melted down and etched with the serial number of the old gun. Check them out at The Frisky.

    Such a beautiful message in the sea of misery and contempt of what was written on that bathroom stall. I’ve stopped reading what was written on bathroom stalls because when I did read them, it has always been about “trashy/gossipy things,” not “personal diary/testimonial” ones. Of course, ‘this’ doesn’t necessarily take out the ‘negative nature’ of the “bathroom stall graffiti,” but how sad that women can’t tell these truths to people in person. They obviously want some ‘help.’

    Shouldn’t Cory Booker be governing the city of Newark? I’m fairly certain that’s a full time job. Between his many media appearances and his jewelry line, I’m surprised if he can squeeze in a few hours a week to do his real job. I like him, but Newark isn’t exactly in good shape right now.
