COLUMN. Nico Dijkshoorn: ‘Marc Coucke is een lichtvreter en … – Sportwereld
Dolgraag zou ik Marc Coucke eens in gesprek zien met zijn nieuwe spectaculaire aankoop voor het volgende seizoen, Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Marc stelt zich voor aan Zlatan. ‘Hi, Ibra, I’m Marc Coucke, the crazy president of the Kustboys. Everybody likes me because I am a crazy guy. I sing Couckenbak and everybody says, hahaha, that’s Marc Coucke again. I dance on tables. Thats what I do.’ En daarna de reactie van Zlatan. ‘I am Zlatan. Fuck off, fatso.’

Stephen Colbert on Making The Late Show His Own | GQ
Since last winter, after laying to rest the blowhard host of The Colbert Report and inheriting Letterman’s seat on The Late Show, the most inventive comic of his generation has been consumed with one very large question: Who will he be now? Stephen Colbert—the real one—gives a sneak peek. And in revealing his truest self (and boy, does he go deep), he shows us how he might just reinvent late-night, too

Kim Jong Un Guides Emergency Enlarged Meeting of WPK Central Military Commission
The situation of the country is now inching close to the brink of a war due to the continued anti-DPRK political and military provocations by the U.S. imperialists and the south Korean puppet forces. The broadcasting for anti-DPRK psychological warfare, resumed by the south Korean puppet military gangsters in all sectors of the front under the pretext of doubtful "mine explosion" case which occurred in the demilitarized zone of the western sector of the front on August 4, is still going on day and night. And the leaflet-scattering operation against the DPRK, kicked off with mobilization of die-hard reactionary organizations, has gone beyond a tolerance limit. Psychological warfare against the DPRK is, in essence, an open act of war against it. In this regard, the General Staff of the Korean People's Army on August 20 sent an ultimatum to the south Korean puppet Ministry of Defense that a strong military action would be launched at once unless it stops the anti-DPRK broadcasting for psychological warfare and removes all psywar means within 48 hours.

The Real Story Behind Apple’s ‘Think Different’ Campaign – Forbes
In writing this story, I’ve drawn from handwritten, dated creative journals I’ve diligently chronicled throughout my agency career as well as files I saved from the 1997 Apple time period (being a packrat often proves useful). In these journals are countless pages of notes and concepts I jotted down during the process of trying to bring Apple back to prominence. I also found the original “To the crazy ones” television script I presented to Jobs, as well as a plethora of rough drafts.

While I’ve seen a few inaccurate articles and comments floating around the Internet about how the legendary “Think Different” campaign was conceived, what prompted me to share this inside account was Walter Isaacson’s recent, best-selling biography on Steve Jobs. In his book, Isaacson incorrectly suggests Jobs created and wrote much of the “To the crazy ones” launch commercial. To me, this is a case of revisionist history.

Being a Dude Is a Good Thing by @TMatlack — The Good Men Project
Here’s my theory, and it’s nothing but a theory. Men and women are different. Quite different in fact. But women would really like men to be more like them.
