Objectified Trailer on line + Hello to Scott!

The trailer of Gary Hustwit's new film Objectified is online. From these first 100 seconds it looks to be up to the standard of his first fantastic documentary Helvetica.
I've shown a screen grab from the trailer which shows MUJI on Broadway: a favorite shop of my sweet friend Scott in Manhattan.
Hi Scott!

Hi there how are you? I was looking through your blog and found it interesting and wanted to leave you a comment.

I have an invitation for you to come and visit my art blog here in San Diego, and comment if you will.

I think that you may enjoy the various labels and music videos I design for my art blog, hope to see you here soon and take care :)

Hi Alanna! Thanks for the shout-out! Muji is marvelous, but I have to admit that the first time I went in, I was unimpressed. I think it was the sheer lack of COLOR! I love color, and Muji is filled with well-designed objects that are very, very neutral. That said, I have come to appreciate the fine and simple products they sell - products that aren't plagued by tokenism or branding, and things that are useful and practical (while still remaining beautiful)! I guess the lesson is: what you don't like at first, give another chance. Step back. Take a second look. I believe everything in life has some redeeming value.
