Check out this great street marketing for a farmer's market in Portland Oregon:
A little more subtle than the Eddie Murphy Mobile, these ads have been attracting a lot of attention and for good reason. Bravo!

Green Roots Festival

Thanks so much to everyone who came out to the first annual Green Roots Festival in Jamaica Plain on Sunday June 8th. We had a great time educating everyone about Birdhead's practices and Michael and Lauren's venture, Chase the Rising Sun. The event, organized by Bikes Not Bombs, featured many exhibits, live music, food, speakers, and workshops to promote sustainable living and address environmental issues.

Some notable groups that were there:

ExCL (Extras for Creative Learning) is a clearinghouse that recovers tons of materials from being burned or buried and redistributes it for creative, education use with children.

The Food Project creates fertile g
round for new ideas about youth and adults partnering to create social change through sustainable agriculture.

Izzit Green is an online social network of green-conscious individuals who want to make a difference in their community through an exchange of ideas, opinions, and information.

Birdhead made a great impact with locally made shirts and bags printed with soy based inks. Our social message to change the world was well received, along with our yummy organic, vegan Birdhead cookies! Thanks Bikes Not Bombs, we look forward to next year!

I'll have a burger with a side of rock star

One of middle-America's favorite 24 hour diners, Denny's, has expanded their menu to include...brace yourself...the Rock Star Menu. Say what? No joke. Denny's has currently secured Taking Back Sunday, The All-American Rejects, Plain White T's, and Eagles of Death Metal for their monumental collaboration of signature slams and rock jams. TBS will have their first Rock Star menu launching in August on a national scale.

Denny's have also launched their "Adopt-a-band" program in which up-and-coming bands can compete for temporary sponsorship from them. Six new bands are chosen every other month and receive free food anytime they want and featured content on the Denny's microsite In return each band is expected to visit three Denny's a month and mention each of these visits on their band's homepage. The first adoptees are EndeverafteR, Saving Abel, Take The Crown, Switches, Forever The Sickest Kids, and Foxy Shazam.

This might possibly be one of the weirdest marketing campaigns I've heard to date. But, when I was 16 years old in Kokomo, Indiana and spending about 15 hours a week at Denny's smoking cigarettes and drinking coffee with the "cool kids", I probably would have been really excited about being able to choose from a menu created by The Smashing Pumpkins. So, kudos to Denny's for putting free food in the bellies of the rock stars.
