Lookalikes and Déjà Vu
...and other things that are hard to spell form the topic of this page.
Does this page ring a bell? Anything that seems familiar, something that you recognize, but can't quite place?
Reluctant Replay. Brand-new, out now, available soon… sound familiar? Killer slogans promote products as the never-seen-before and better-than-ever, groundbreaking, next best thing since the ingenious invention of the wheel (and the book). At second glance, the most mind-blowing innovation may reveal itself as ruthless repetition of been-there-before ideas in a new outfit, old wine in new skins. What matters is the unprecedented application of the creative variation.
Regular Repetition. History is said to repeat itself and also we do similar things once in a while. To highlight similarities is the purpose of this page. Showing what is paralleling each other, possibly years later. One of the most difficult spelling words at schools as a catch phrase for pictures that belong together, just as some people do. It all started with a picture of my daughter pulling a wagon in the middle of these endlessly wide open spaces overseas.
