WANT: A GREATER APPRECIATION FOR THE CLASSICS
In 1963, film director Alfred Hitchcock released his thriller "The Birds", starring Tippi Hedren. The movie depicted a northern California town inexplicably attacked by birds and, in a pivotal scene, showed the blonde Hedren in a green suit dodging vicious gulls at a garden party.
In 2008, Mattel released “The Birds” Barbie Doll to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the film’s release.

WANT: A SENSIBLE HAT
"Until now, it was easy to pick out Nikolas Schiller at meetings about District oversight or voting rights: the dude in the tricorn hat.

WANT: A RIGHTEOUS TATTOO.
Recent news coverage of a gay-bashing assault included footage of one man with this biblical verse tattooed on his arm: “Thou shall not lie with a man as one does with a woman. It is an abomination. Leviticus 18:22”.
Ironically, the next chapter in Leviticus forbids tattooing: “Ye shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor print any marks upon you: I am the Lord. Leviticus 19:28”.

"The solution? A personal assistant."
