KRConnectGood to see that the modern day advertisers keep an eye on what has happened in history! And the CEO is not too busy to check his own blog.. I like that!

Wikipedia: Still There + Some New Additions

Wikipedia (later that evening!)Good, I seem to have got the level of the content right (oh, I  have more, but I don’t think they want everything on there!), as I’m still on there, and the main editor has gone in and made further changes, so that’s all good news! Welcome if you’re visiting via Wikipedia!

Meantime, another article in response to Rob Walker’s article: Signs of the Times

Wikipedia Entry: Keep Calm and Carry On

Wikipedia EntryWho knows who edits these different Wikipedia entries. I have tried a few times to add information to this site, but I think partly because so many companies are trying to sell it, they are being super-strict. However, I am the global expert on the subject, so here’s hoping they think I have something to say. If not, you can read it here!

Celebrity “Wearers” of Keep Calm and Carry On

Katie Price, Keep Calm and Carry OnCelebrities love to wear “statement t-shirts” and what could be more of a statement than “Keep Calm and Carry On”

If you want to buy one of these t-shirts, or other bits and pieces, I’ve been checking out Barter Books, and Keep Calm London, and Yes/No Maybe

Now Panic and Freak Out and other variations

Now Panic and Freak OutNow, everyone knows about the alternate slogan “Now Panic and Freak Out”, but I don’t think I’ve ever put an image of it up here, this one is taken from Threadless.

I have always loved finding subverted images of the posters that I studied:

Change Words and Be Hilarious

Who likes it/mentions it (according to Google Alerts!)?
I’m just fascinated to see how it’s been repurposed!

I have, like, over 100 Google Alerts come in – stopped at around 40ish, have other work to do today, but there’s so much information on this – SO interesting!

Freedom is in Peril: Defend it With all Your Might

Freedom is in Peril PosterNot content with “Keep Calm and Carry On”, there’s now a site for “Freedom is in Peril: Defend it with All Your Might”, one of the series of three posters published alongside KCCO!  Shame there’s no history on there, maybe I’ll find some more to put up… but I do like the fact that they are donating part of their sales to charity!

Rubber Soul: Rubber Stamp

Rubber Soul "Keep Calm and Carry On" StampRubber Soul "Keep Calm and Carry On" Stamp

After seeing these rubber stamps advertised on Barter Books, I thought I’d follow the link to Rubber Soul, and have purchased one of each. Now I just need to find a red ink pad so that I can use them, once they appear from the States!

I can then stamp all kinds of things, what a way to spend a day!

The Experts Agree also picked up on these rubber stamps. I must remember to act on their Wikipedia advice, as all the information is from my research, would like the credit for it, and of course Wikipedia is so huge (even if we don’t like seeing the students using it!)
