[Redacted]: Looking Forward

by obscenealex

Greetings, [confrères], and welcome to another week of [Redacted].  I’m going to pretend most of this past week never happened. Start over.  Press the reset button.  Rage quit.  Maybe even black out to forget.  Instead of revisiting the past week, we’re going to spend this week looking ahead.  The future hasn’t happened yet (something Boring Sean Monahan may have already said at some point) and therefore offers me the hope missing from the past week.  Let’s get this over with…

Every Friday bloggers from around The Heptarchy will update us on the news and notes from their teams (with that fancy header image courtesy of Mike D; like democracy itself, it’s a perpetual work-in-progress).

Today In History

1958_Corsair_DatenFord officially discontinued its horrible Edsel line on this day in 1959.

There’s been a lot written about why the Edsel was such a colossal disaster. Some say it was the name, some say it was the weird design — vertical grills! – and some say it was just poorly marketed, with Ford execs not enthused by it and very little actual consumer research executed.

But the fact is the Edsel missed its mark. Where Conference III is a success — appealing to the sensibilities and aspirations both of Middle America, the Edsel was a failure. It was intended to be the in-between line, above the basic Ford and below the more high-end Mercury. Edsel, unfortunately, was priced all over the place — some models in line with Ford, some in line with Mercury, some between and some actually more expensive than the Mercury.

Cover Bands: III Communication’s NHL 14 Cover Vote Endorsements

by J.R.

Voting begins today for the cover dude for EA Sports NHL ’14. As per tradition, the company has called upon fans to make the choice, employing a voting system more complicated than the way the Republic of Venice chose the doge.

As a public service, III Communication is providing this voters’ guide (with helpful cover songs!) for the teams in Conference III — you have to vote for the rest of the teams, too, but we’ll let your conscience be your guide deciding between Brian Campbell and Kris Versteeg.
