Several of the dead Presidents of the United States tweet in character on Twitter including Abraham Lincoln, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Harry Truman, John F. Kennedy, Lyndon Baines Johnson, and Richard Nixon (previously). As I write this, Lincoln is about to live-tweet the Gettysburg address. Your mileage may vary, as some accounts are updated more than others.
Says the profane GrojLart on Philaphilia:
If I were in charge, I’d go balls to the walls with [the Philadelphia History Museum]. I would display every beer can and bottle from every brewery Philly has ever had, a set of artifacts from every neighborhood, a product from every old factory, models of all the coolest lost buildings, an exhibit of all the different urban revitalization plans over the years, a diagram of showing the growth of the street grid, shit about the different indian tribes from the region, models of all the different kinds of rowhouses, a timeline of city government corruption, an exhibit of all the Philadelphia Firsts, the actual paintings that were Saturday Evening Post covers instead of reprints, a Mummers section that’s better than the Mummers Museum, Moses King’s books/photos, Frank G. Taylor’s books/drawings/photos, to name a few. You don’t need some garbage brand consulting firm con-artists to tell you that. You need a Philaphile.
A short clip (previously):
Yet another example (previously) as to why LBJ was awesome. When the man needed pants, he got himself pants. In the above, LBJ contacts Bill Haggar, the son of the Texas-based pants company patriarch, to order new pants. The audio is presumably from the same audio recording system, that would later take down Nixon. The animation was commisioned by the folks at Put this on.
Listen to it, at the very least to hear Johnson reference his “nuts” and “bunghole”. Via Guy Kawasaki.
