Chinatown Market Collaborates With Good Charlotte

Chinatown Market has jumped into the musician merchandise category.
The Los Angeles-based streetwear brand also runs a consulting agency and has done merchandise work for Warner Music Group and Live Nation, but this is the first time it is lending the Chinatown Market name and logo to product.
Mike Cherman, founder of Chinatown Market, said he was good friends with Josh Madden, brother to Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden, and after finding out Joel was a fan of the brand, they decided to team up.
“Growing up I was a fan of Good Charlotte,” Cherman said. “And eventually we were at a dinner and just said we have to do this. It was good to work on something this scale, and it’s something to be said for Good Charlotte. They did a BAPE collaboration and now we are reintroducing them on a whole different platform.”
The first drop from the collection includes a T-shirt, hoodie and stickers that retail in different packages ranging from $ 10 to $ 105. They are available to purchase on Good Charlotte’s web site. Good Charlotte will release its seventh studio album, “Generation Rx,” on Sept. 14 and will go on a North American tour this fall. Cherman said this will

Independents’ Day: Canada’s Harry Rosen Has Owned the Men’s Market for Decades

TORONTO — Harry Rosen has a lock on the Canadian men’s wear market, but that hold hasn’t come without a lot of hard work.
The company was founded in 1954 by Harry and his brother Lou Rosen in a small storefront in Toronto to provide made-to-measure suits for men. The firm has since grown into a 300 million Canadian dollar ($ 228.3 million), 18-store chain with locations in the seven largest cities around the country and some 1,000 employees.
Although Harry stepped back from the day-to-day operation of the business in 2005, he still serves as an ambassador, often stopping by one of the stores to chat with customers. But he left the company in good hands: as chief executive officer since 2000, his son Larry Rosen has built on his father’s legacy. Waiting in the wings is Ian Rosen, Larry’s son, who is joining the family business this summer to oversee its digital marketing initiatives, and at the same time, ensure the eventual transition to the next generation will be seamless.
But Harry Rosen has also branched out beyond its core business, teaming up with Ermenegildo Zegna to open flagship stores for the luxury Italian label in Canada. In August, a 3,000-square-foot Zegna

Manny Machado trade market: Eight teams talking to Orioles, but these two are the front-runners

Given that the Orioles are terrible and that pending free agent Manny Machado is the opposite of terrible, it seems highly likely that the star infielder will be moved in advance of the non-waiver trade deadline.  Machado in his age-25 season is batting .311/.378/.565 (160 OPS+) with 21 home runs in 83 games. That's on pace to be easily a career year for Machado, and he's also proved himself capable of returning to the shortstop position in 2018. He's going to get paid this coming offseason, and he may wind up fetching a bigger contract than Bryce Harper does.  In the here and now, though, Machado is very likely on his way to a contender. Here's what CBS Sports HQ MLB analyst Jim Bowden says

Common Gender Aims to Tap Underpenetrated Men’s Market in China

SHANGHAI — It was a case of the venue determining the launch city of men’s wear label Common Gender rather than Shanghai’s burgeoning reputation as an international fashion hub.
When looking at locations for the label’s first fashion show, Lea Chan, vice president and marketing director of parent company EPO Fashion Group, searched for venues in Shanghai, Beijing and Chengdu, but settled on the former after discovering West Bund Art Center. Once an old aircraft factory, the industrial space has held onto much of its raw, urban interior, which was in keeping with the brand’s Nineties Berlin-inspired pop-up shop and edgy, angular fashion show on Tuesday.
The pop-up store and fashion show were attended by key Chinese influencers and business partners of the brand and featured a cast of international and local male models purposefully storming down the catwalk with a performance by American twin brother electro punk rock band The Garden.
EPO Fashion Group, parent company of women’s wear brands Mo & Co. and Edition 10; cosmetics brand REC, and children’s wear label Little Mo & Co. posted group sales of 3.5 billion yuan in 2017, or $ 555 million. Common Gender’s launch marks the Chinese company’s move into the domestic men’s wear market.

London-based stylists Charlotte Stockdale and Katie Lyall, co-editors in chief of brand new magazine-cum-posterbook Chaos SixtyNine, held a “teenage bachelor bedroom” themed installation in the basement. “We wanted it to be a space where you could put up all the posters from the magazine freely. That seemed naturally to be a teenage bedroom,” said Lyall.
The space was also used to launch the Chaos Bruv Club Collection, as well as special merchandise. “The Bruv Club is like men’s suiting, racer graphics, a bit skate and a bit gentleman,” said Stockdale. “It’s a nice mix of the two. Bruv Club to us is all-inclusive: boys, girls, anyone up for a bit of fun.”
While the second issue of the biannual title won’t be out until at least May of next year, Charlotte and Katie have collaborations up their sleeves — the first of which will be with Hayden Kays, a British artist influenced by Fifties pop art.

Balenciaga Brings Copy Shop Concept to Dover Street Market

DO IT YOURSELF: Balenciaga is bringing its copy shop concept to London’s Dover Street Market.
The personalized T-shirt printing service, first unveiled during its takeover of Paris concept store Colette last summer, will be installed in the store from Nov. 30 to Dec. 17, the brand said.
Touch screens will allow customers to create their own designs, using a selection of Balenciaga logos and graphics, to be printed instantly. The T-shirts will be available in black, white, gray and red, in two sizes for men and women, and will feature the mention “Balenciaga Do It Yourself Ts” on the back.
The project is an offshoot of Balenciaga creative director Demna Gvasalia’s men’s wear show for fall exploring the corporate world, with items including sweatshirts bearing the slogan of the brand’s parent company Kering.
To mark the inauguration of the copy shop on Nov. 30, Balenciaga will offer an exclusive colorway of its Triple S sneaker in all Dover Street Market stores worldwide. The London installation will also feature a sculpture by Mark Jenkins and video screens.

The CurvyCon Founders on the State of the Plus-size Market

As the retail market limps toward progress, the CurvyCon founders CeCe Olisa and Chastity Garner have curated a successful annual event centered on the plus-size category.
This past September, “This is Us” actress Chrissy Metz delivered a keynote speech and activations included a runway show and panels led by Fern Mallis. Here, the cofounders examine the state of the curvy market.
WWD: In your opinion, what in the market is necessitating the focus on the plus-size market?
Chastity Garner: Retail is struggling. Brick-and-mortar locations of major retailers are closing. The offerings for straight-sized women are oversaturated. Plus-size women are the majority of the women in the U.S., but have the least clothing options. If you want to stay alive in the retail market, you have to sell more to current customers or find new ones. The plus-size woman is that new customer. 
CeCe Olisa: Social media has been key to expanding the plus-size market. Until recently, any conversations about plus[-size] bodies or fashion was dictated by the media — it was shameful and lackluster. Now consumers are taking the reins. A plus woman who expresses herself through fashion can be interesting, aspirational and accessible, which can translate easily into sales.

British Brands Converge on U.S. Men’s Market

With Brexit looming and the potential loss of commerce with other European nations, the U.K. fashion and textile industry is increasing its focus on the American market.
At the men’s trade shows in New York this week, nearly 50 designers and manufacturers of men’s wear brought their wares to the city. Among the brands showing at Project, MRket, Capsule, Liberty Fairs and Man under the tag line “Brits in New York” were Alan Paine, Austin Reed, Barbour, Edward Green, Ettinger, John Smedley, French Connection, Trickers, Derek Rose, Ted Baker London, Troubadour and Richard James.
Paul Alger, director of international business development for the U.K. Fashion & Textile Association, said, “If Brexit happens, we need to make sure we replace the business we’ll lose in continental Europe with other markets. And the U.S. is tops on that list.”
As a result, the UKFT provides grants of 1,200 pounds for brands to show internationally up to six times.
In addition to the U.S., the grants are available to manufacturers showing at Pitti Uomo in Florence, where Alger said 100 U.K. brands were represented at the latest edition in June, as well as at shows in Paris; Lyon, France; Shanghai, and Berlin.

Lingerie and Beachwear Market in Upbeat Mood for Mode City

PARIS — The mood was resilient at the recent Mode City and Interfilière intimate apparel trade shows here, reversing several years of declines in visitor numbers. Exhibitors and visitors alike were in a positive state of mind, especially as concerns the growing beachwear and ath-leisure categories.
Visitor numbers at Mode City grew 18 percent, show organizer Eurovet said, without giving numbers, with 72 percent of traffic hailing from international markets. Visitor numbers for sister fabric fair Interfilière were not disclosed. The events took place at the Porte de Versailles exhibition center from July 8-11, returning to the French capital after moving temporarily to Lyon last year because of the UEFA Euro 2016 soccer final in Paris.
“Business is performing quite well,” said Lise Charmel managing director Olivier Piquet. “The weather has been good in Europe, which is boosting the swimwear market, and even the department stores have been seeing good growth. It’s giving the market a renewed energy,” he said. Lise Charmel was seeing strong demand for its plain swimsuits with cutout motifs and its exclusive tropical prints, Piquet said.

After 20 years of distributing its collection throughout Europe, the Middle East, Canada, Latin America, Australia and India, Selected Homme is making its first play into the U.S. market.
The brand is part of Bestseller, a privately owned Danish company that operates over 20 brands including Vero Moda, Only and Vila.
“There is a European trend of openness and we believe the U.S. market is poised for a change,” said Selected Homme’s country manager Brian Edgar.
The Selected Homme main line is divided into three separate collections. The heritage collection, which consists of casual sportswear; the indigo collection that’s made up of denim, and an “identity” assortment that offers a new take on tailored classics. Selected Homme also has a directional label called Homme Plus, which features on-trend clothes. The lines retail from $ 45 to $ 465.
“All three collections can sit together for optimal representation, or each collection can sit alone,” said Edgar.
While the collection is now available in the U.S. via its e-commerce site, Edgar is currently focused on targeting men’s specialty stores including Modern Anthology, Whiskey Ginger and J3 Clothing Company. Selected Homme operates 44 stores around the world, but has no current plans for building up a bricks-and-mortar presence in the U.S.

Streetwear Sizzles in Russia Amid a Tepid Men’s Market

MOSCOW — The building that will house the future, larger Kuznetskiy Most 20 store here was last week wrapped in a giant orange banner declaring “стиль” — the Russian word for style.
It’s also a subbrand of Heron Preston, feted here in grand manner by KM20 owner Olga Karput. She also wrangled Off-White’s Virgil Abloh for an event that reflected feverish interest in American designers and the burgeoning luxury streetwear category they represent.
The trendy crowd, mostly men wearing the latest urban labels and collectible sneakers, shattered the stereotype that Russian men are indifferent to trends — and possibly signaled a light at the end of the tunnel for a country that has been mired in the retail doldrums.
“I think style is universal and fashion is small,” mused Preston, whose fall collection was showcased in a pop-up boutique in the raw space, decked out with vodka bars, a DJ booth — and a full-sized bulldozer — for the occasion. “The common thinking is that if you are not into fashion, you are not into style. But style is not only about clothes. It could also be how you ride a bike. My logo was picked because everyone can be connected with style without being in fashion.”

Applied DNA Builds Recurring Revenue in Synthetic Fiber Market

Applied DNA Sciences has delivered its third shipment against continuing purchase orders for molecular tags used to protect supply chains for polyethylene terephthalate man-made fibers from master batch to finished goods.
With recurring, non-seasonal orders, this synthetics supply chain experience has accelerated contract discussions in progress with other man-made fiber segment manufacturers.
“Molecular tags can be used to track high-quality and high-performance grades of PET, where the specifications are demanding,” said James Hayward, president and chief executive officer of Applied DNA, which provides DNA-based supply-chain, anticounterfeiting and antitheft technology, product genotyping and product authentication solutions. “Unlike paper or electronic certificates, these molecular certificates carry the identifying unalterable information in or on the product, thereby providing assurances to governments and consumers alike.”
Hayward said recycled PET can be verified by the molecular certificate infused within the polymer after the recycling process and is just one of several polymer families Applied DNA expects to productize this year.

Art, Cultural Heritage and the Market

Art, Cultural Heritage and the Market


In the age of economic globalisation, do art and heritage matter? Once the domain of elitist practitioners and scholars, the governance of cultural heritage and the destiny of iconic artefacts have emerged as the new frontier of international law, making headlines and attracting the varied interests of academics and policy-makers, museum curators and collectors, human rights activists and investment lawyers and artists and economists, just to mention a few. The return of cultural artefacts to their legitimate owners, the recovery of underwater cultural heritage and the protection and promotion of artistic expressions are just some of the pressing issues addressed by this book. Contemporary intersections between art, cultural heritage and the market are complicated by a variety of ethical and legal issues, which often describe complex global relations. Should works of art be treated differently from other goods? What happens if a work of art, currently exhibited in a museum, turns out to have originally been looted? What is the relevant legal framework? What should be done with ancient shipwrecks filled with objects from former colonies? Should such objects be kept by the finders? Should they be returned to the country of origin? This book addresses these different questions while highlighting the complex interplay between legal and ethical issues in the context of cultural governance. The approach is mainly legal but interdisciplinary aspects are considered as well.

Cornering the Market

Cornering the Market


In popular stereotypes, local grocers were avuncular men who spent their days in pickle-barrel conversations and checkers games; they were backward small-town merchants resistant to modernizing impulses. Cornering the Market challenges these conventions to demonstrate that nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century grocers were important but unsung innovators of business models and retail technologies that fostered the rise of contemporary retailing. Small grocery owners revolutionized business practices from the bottom by becoming the first retailers to own and operate cash registers, develop new distribution paths, and engage in transforming the grocery trade from local enterprises to a nationwide industry. Drawing on storekeepers’ diaries, business ledgers and documents, and the letters of merchants, wholesalers, traveling men, and consumers, Susan V. Spellman details the remarkable achievements of American small businessmen, and their major contributions to the making of “modern” enterprise in the United States. The development of mass production, distribution, and marketing, the growth of regional and national markets, and the introduction of new organizational and business methods fundamentally changed the structures of American capitalism. Within the walls of their stores, proprietors confronted these changes by crafting solutions centered on notions of efficiency, scale, and price control. Without abandoning local ties, they turned social concepts of community into commercial profitability. It was a powerful combination that businesses from chain stores to Walmart continue to exploit today.

On Dec. 6, Hoka will introduce a new model, the Hupana, that is designed to appeal to the more commercial market.
Hoka One One was founded in 2009 by Nicolas “Nico” Mermoud and Jean-Luc Diard, two French ultrarunners who were unhappy with the options available at that time in the running shoe market and searching for an alternative that would help them run downhill comfortably after racing up mountains.
Hoka was acquired in 2013 by Deckers Brands, which has worked for three years to expand beyond strictly a niche brand.
Ironically, Hoka One One — a Maori phrase that means “fly over the earth,” was introduced smack in the middle of the minimalistic shoe phase that was so popular several years ago.
Wendy Yang, president of Deckers’ performance lifestyle brands, said because the shoes were

South Coast Plaza Eyes Men’s Market With Debut Look Book

CUSTOM APPROACH: South Coast Plaza is showing some love to the male shopper.
The Orange County shopping center this evening will host a private event at the Berluti store to celebrate South Coast’s first men’s fall marketing book.
It’s a strategic move for the center as more chatter builds around men’s and the HENRYs consumer — high-earnings, not rich yet shoppers — or male Millennials.
“With the international growth in the men’s wear category, we wanted to shine the spotlight on our unparalleled collection of men’s boutiques, which represent some of the world’s most coveted names, from fashion-forward brands to esteemed sartorial leaders,” said South Coast executive director of marketing Debra Gunn Downing in a statement.
The book includes looks from Berluti, Boss, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Salvatore Ferragamo, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vuitton, Oliver Peoples and Ralph Lauren.
South Coast counts more than 70 boutiques that sell men’s apparel or accessories and both new and existing tenants have taken more notice of the male customer.
COS, expected to open in October, and Massimo Dutti, slated for a November opening, will both carry men’s.
Roberto Cavalli relocated this year and added men’s when it reopened its doors. Dolce & Gabbana opened at South Coast Plaza, also earlier this

Yael Sonia Entering Men’s Jewelry Market

Yael Sonia has built a strong following for her architectural fine jewelry that’s handmade in São Paulo. Now the designer is entering men’s and putting a darker spin on her core aesthetic.
“I had a lot of clients ask me about men’s jewelry and I even made some pieces for male clients in Brazil, so I thought it was time,” said Sonia, who recently closed her Madison Avenue store to open a 1,400-square-foot showroom and design workshop in SoHo.
The men’s collection includes cuff links, rings, pendant necklaces, bracelets and stud earrings made from metal, black diamonds, Tahitian pearls, smoky quartz and onyx. The gold range will retail from $ 425 to $ 14,500 while the silver collection will be priced from $ 325 to $ 1,150.
According to Sonia, this launch also signifies a bigger push into wholesale. The men’s collection will be sold at Odin in late September and Sonia is currently meeting with retailers for the women’s line.
The designer will also add eight to 10 additional stockkeeping units for men’s next season and introduce leather into the assortment.

How to Market Yourself in the Music Industry

I’m a hypocrite. At least I think I may be.

I’ve spent the better part of 30 years in sales and marketing and actually own a marketing company. Yet, I find myself annoyed by commercials and blatant brand marketing campaigns. Perhaps being an insider in the game of marketing has tainted my objectivity and sense of appreciation for the cleverness of it all. But in the end, I fast-forward through commercials on my DVR and find product placements in TV shows and movies to be a bit tacky. I have often asked myself if I have ever really been influenced to make a purchase based on advertising.

The simple answer has to be, “Yes”.

My subconscious awareness of a brand or product puzzles me. I’ve responded to discounts or low price offers in advertisements when it involves a product I’m already interested in buying, usually a commodity like food. But if I’m not already looking for or seeking a product or service, advertising just glosses right past me. At least that’s what I rationalize.

Having said that, I do appreciate clever creative advertising. Watching the Super Bowl for the best commercials is like a holiday event. So I can admit that I am at least marginally affected by advertising.

In the entertainment business, it’s all about advertising and promotion. In fact, the industry doesn’t exist or renew apart from P & A (promotion and advertising).

An artist, actor, model, or perhaps anyone in the public eye will typically need to manage their brand and image with the public and industry. It’s part of the process. It just is.

When I consider all the ways advertisers use to promote their product, service or cause, I am overwhelmed by the conditioning we, a free market society, have been subjected to over the past 100 years or so. Think about it. Nearly everything we experience each day has some promotion or advertising connected with it. Even the most human characteristic has a form of promotion. The outfit we choose to wear, how we do our hair, the personal hygiene products we use are all simply ways we tell the world who we are in the most basic way.

In the music industry, everything an artist does, says, looks like, sounds like, etc. is a direct or indirect form of advertising. The exception being that in the entertainment industry, it is advertising on steroids. It is an industry based on the senses and emotion. Promoting an artist involves engaging the potential consumer with a sensual or intellectual appeal. Guys like me in marketing understand this nuance and we do our best to enter the psyche of the targeted consumer to create a campaign that will attract them to the product, service or cause we assist promoting.

The hardest part of advertising is knowing how to calculate investment of funds and other resources (like time, creativity, etc) versus the measurement of the payback. For business newbies, the term is called ROI, Return On Investment. The magic or silver bullet in marketing is to find the best ROI campaign.

Measuring ROI in the music business can be difficult. Some would look for direct financial returns as the best measurement. Record labels, especially, are concerned about ROI because they function more like a bank now than in the past. They are looking for their investment to make a return in literal revenues. But as a new artist trying to make your way, some marketing investments won’t have a financial ROI, but more of a branding ROI. What this means is that you are investing in spreading your name, talent and creativity to as many people as possible. You’re selling yourself, not just your CD or downloadable music, or concert tickets, or merchandise. A branding campaign is likely the most expensive and most difficult one of all because it doesn’t have a direct measurable ROI at first.

There have been many gigs, media interviews, songs, TV appearances, or just meet and greets that Spencer Kane (my 18 year old artist / actor son) has done the past three years that give him public visibility, but there has been no financial upside in the short term. It’s all been part of the branding campaign. Even having a sponsor for shoes and clothes has often been simply a branding campaign for the sponsor and Spencer at the same time. There’s no real financial upside to it.

One of the more frustrating parts of P&A in the music business involves touring and live events. There’s not really an easy formula for how to fill seats at a venue when you’re just starting out. There’s the whole friends and family angle when you’re just an infant in the process, but that gets old. Promoting your music and brand well enough to get a consumer to pay for a ticket to see you live is simply difficult. There’s no short cut, no secret method. There’s always co-branding where you attach yourself to an existing product or brand that the public already knows (think being an opener for a major headliner), but even that can cost money for a new artist (pay-to-play).

Refining your approach to marketing in the music industry is an ever evolving process. What works for one season, may not work the next. Redefining your image and brand may involve new music styles, new wardrobe or appearance, or even migrating to a different area in the entertainment business. Madonna has always inspired me regarding her ability to reinvent herself for different seasons and audiences. She is still Madonna, but somehow creates a new sound, image, or controversy to get the public to pay attention. Miley Cyrus does it all the time. It’s the nature of the industry.

People’s attention span, especially teens, only lasts so long. The “flavor of the day” mindset is very realistic for younger audiences. However, once they attach their emotions to that flavor, it stays with them for years. I recall my personal emotional tie to songs and bands from my youth. That is why the entertainment industry is so built around youth. It’s the ability to connect emotionally and sensually with your audience that creates business. This is fact.

So here’s a few quick tips about how to market yourself and measure the ROI to some degree.

1) PERFORM LIVE OFTEN

Sadly, with the advent of the internet age, artists think churning out mix-tapes or youtube videos is going to give them their big break. They offer free music for download in an effort to build their brand. While offering “samples” of the product is smart, giving away your product long-term just looks desparate. It creates the image that you don’t value your brand. Beyond that, it’s eventually costing a lot of resources that could be spent elsewhere. Once an artist has a lot of product built up, they need to focus on giving the public a live experience of the product. This is important because it does many things for your career. It helps you learn how to respond to audiences, but also allows audiences to experience more than just the music of an artist. It’s a way to build an emotional connection that is deeper than the melody or lyrics. You’re investing in your brand and building fans that will ultimately pay for your music. Sadly, social media fans don’t easily convert to buyers of your product because they have been trained to expect everything for free. When you’re trying to build a career and earn a living, free doesn’t cut it. So taking every opportunity to perform will eventually create an ROI of product sales in merch at the event or new music you release later on. Performing live may involve a lot of free shows, non-paying gigs, travel expenses, and even some pay-to-play performances. The investment may be costly up front, but it will pay off down the road in revenues.

2) SOCIAL MEDIA

Not to contradict myself, but social media does have a ROI. The investment is the babysitting of posting and upload of content, responding to fans and engaging with them, and the managing of multiple platforms and software. Hiring a social media manager may escalate the ROI, but also may cost you finances to do. The viral effects of social media are proven when the right content or post is made available. But it is important to know that it is more a marketing tool of necessity than one of financial return. It builds a long-term snapshot of the artist and their life, which will give new converts a chance to get to know the artist and their music in short order. The ROI is usually the initial exposure of your music to new fans who may eventually come see you in concert or pay for your music.

3) IMAGING

Please take the time to hire a professional photographer, graphic designer, web developer, producer for music, etc. Many artists fail to realize that their image goes beyond the music they create. It is their wardrobe, the photos they post online, the album artwork, the press photos they furnish, the music videos they create, and even their merch booth display. For a few hundred dollars, for example, you can create a very visually stimulating merch booth at a live venue. It will easily impress fans and even industry folks who attend that you’re serious about your career. Many think spending $ 100 on home printed paper CD label will save them money, but it may be costing them. Take the same $ 100 and spend it on a 5 or 8 foot banner. That visual will attract people to stop by your booth. This is especially true when performing at a large festival where you’re not alone as an artist. A good photographer can be found about anywhere nowadays. Camera gear is relatively inexpensive. Even phones have great cameras. It’s the little things you do with your image in marketing materials that make a good ROI.

4) CO-BRANDING

I mentioned this before, but any chance you get to be a feature on an established artist’s project, or have them featured on yours is brilliant marketing. Appearing at an event with an established brand is also important. This may seem basic, but it is important. The real challenge is that established artists don’t like having parasites around. They don’t want to use their fame and popularity to give you a freebie. Most will want some investment from you in exchange. Don’t be offended. They have spent years and resources building their brand. Imagine being a wannabe chef and asking a national restaurant if you can offer your gourmet recipe to their clients and potentially taking away orders from their own menu. This is the reality of co-branding. It costs money most times but the ROI can be instant popularity. Just listen to radio. Rihanna has done something no other artist has done in history. She has more number one songs on Billboard than anyone. She hasn’t done so alone, she has co-branded the majority of them by being featured or having a proven artist featured on her project. It has created a successful business ROI for her career.

5) PRESS RELEASE

It may seem trivial, but the power of a press release as it relates to marketing is very important. Having media tell your pre-planned news story can be very helpful. Writing a press release properly is very important and paying someone to do that can make a difference in first impressions with the media. You may not have the ability to craft words together or may think you’re a lyrical assassin with words, but having a professional press release writer tell your story is an important investment. Many can also help distribute the press release to the right outlets to cover your story. Sadly, the local newspaper only builds local awareness, and in the music industry, you need to have a regional impact to build serious momentum. The ROI isn’t an immediate financial one in most cases, but more of a brand awareness and can really build strong alliances with media outlets that will likely want to follow your progress over time.

Even though marketing (P&A) is essential, be careful not to get caught up in investing so much in P&A that you lose sight of measuring the ROI. At some point you will look at your bank account and music sales and scratch your head wondering why it isn’t what you expected. Being careful in your investment of P&A and deliberate about measuring the ROI along the way will help you prevent going bankrupt in resources or emotion. The other balance to this is to avoid believing your own P&A and ignoring the reality that your brand or music may just not be desirable by the masses and it may be time to pack it in and focus on another way to earn a living. Sad reality, but one that can save you and those around you some frustration.

The Politics of Provisions: Food Riots, Moral Economy, and Market Transition in England, c. 1550-1850

The Politics of Provisions: Food Riots, Moral Economy, and Market Transition in England, c. 1550-1850


The ‘politics of provisions’ – forceful negotiations over sustenance – has created surprising contests in world history, particularly in times of market transition. In England a ‘politics of provisions’ evolved in a dialogue between popular riots and paternalist subsistence policies from Tudor dearths to the Victorian embrace of free-market doctrines. Hence provision politics was a core ingredient of both state-formation and of the emergence of the first market economy and society in England. This book is the first full-scale critical revision of E.P. Thompson’s seminal model of the ‘moral economy of the crowd’, which has had huge influence across the social sciences. It is the first synthesis of the many dispersed studies of three centuries of marketing and negotiations by riot over subsistence. By explaining such long-term shifts in patterns of political negotiation from parish-pump to Privy Council, this study offers a new view of why food riots were a more compelling and lasting bone of contention than enclosures, wages or votes.

Dear Market Researcher, I’m Gay — Stop Sending Playboy Subscription Offers!

This offer arrived in the mail the other day from Playboy‘s Market Research Department:

2014-06-20-playboy.JPG

Dear Domenick Scudera,

To attract readers with preferred demographics, you have been selected to receive this courtesy. As a special incentive, the price is reduced down as low as we are allowed, giving you a full year of Playboy for a token $ 12.

A sampling of my friends’ responses:

  • “I hear the articles are good.”
  • “Wasn’t this on your wedding registry?”
  • “I think the label has a misprint — it should read ‘…to a token,12.'”
  • “Oh, c’mon. Everyone knows gay men love women.”
  • “Did u forget to tell us something?”

Gay acceptance has reached new heights if 49-year-old, recently married gay men are one of Playboy‘s “preferred demographics.” I feel blessed that Playboy has extended me this courtesy, one that I never would have received back in the days when gays were being denied equality.

The offer says that I will get the “beyond-beautiful women, obviously.” In addition, they believe that I will “appreciate the award-winning journalism and no-holds-barred interviews” in every “smoking hot issue.” The fine print includes this guarantee: “Playboy always guarantees that if you are ever dissatisfied for any reason whatsoever you get a full refund on all unmailed issues.”

Dear Playboy,

I am somewhat dissatisfied with my subscription. Don’t get me wrong. There is a lot to admire in your magazine: The articles and interviews are terrific, and the women are, obviously, beyond beautiful. However, I would enjoy more male nudity in my magazines. Please refund me the amount of my unmailed issues, until you are prepared to give me some smoking-hot maleness.

Thanks,
Domenick

This is not the first time I have received an offer for heterosexual porn. When I was 7 years old, I innocently opened up a plain, white envelope addressed to me. There was a series of pictures of naked women with their legs spread wide, and before I knew what was happening, my mother leaped across the room, wrestled the envelope out of my hands and appeared to have some trouble breathing. The next thing I knew, she was on the phone, complaining to someone, trying to make sure I never received offers like this again. Who did she call? The Post Office? The Better Business Bureau? President Nixon? I have no idea, but whoever it was, she was ineffective. I received more offers for years. She carefully monitored my mail until I was well into my college years.

Were 7-year-old gay boys one of the “preferred demographics” for Screw?

Most likely, these marketing departments have misidentified me. This is a problem I encounter often. For instance, when I watch television, the advertisers assume that I am a heavyset, single female on her period. I gather this from the fact that most of the commercials are for weight-loss supplements, dating sites and tampons.

About an hour after I received the Playboy offer, a pleasant young woman knocked on our front door with an offer for educational books for our children. When I explained that we have dogs, not kids, she showed me the books anyway. Did I know that flamingos are pink because they eat shrimp, and that they would be white if they did not? No, I did not. This is educational, but my nonexistent children will not learn this, because I did not order any of the books.

Am I missing out? There might be other interesting factoids in those books, and Playboy‘s “no-holds-barred interviews” might offer some insights. But for now, I think I will hold on to my gay dollars for another day.

Woman Who Says She Bought Renoir At Flea Market For $7 Challenged In Court

The question of who owns a tiny Renoir landscape of the River Seine may rest on a four-page handwritten letter penned 78 years ago by a middle-aged woman in a bad mood.

The letter, by the Baltimore art collector Saidie A. May, is reprinted verbatim as part of a 154-page motion for summary judgment filed late Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Eastern Virginia by attorney Marla Diaz on behalf of the Baltimore Museum of Art.

In effect, the motion asks federal Judge Leonie M. Brinkema to determine that the 1879 oil painting “Paysage Bords de Seine” belongs to the Baltimore museum and not to the 51-year-old Virginia woman who says she bought it at a flea market in 2009 for $ 7 as part of a box of odds and ends.

The letter by the then-56-year-old May is dated Oct. 14, 1935. It’s key to the case because it indicates that the heiress owns the tiny painting (framed, it is about the size of a piece of notebook paper) and planned to lend it to her hometown museum. May later bequeathed her art collection — including the Renoir painting — to the Baltimore museum, according to the motion.

May’s missive, replete with underlinings and multiple exclamation points, was written to Roland McKinney, who at the time was the museum’s director. The heiress — one of the art institution’s major benefactors — seems primarily interested in scolding McKinney about the sorry condition of a religious painting in the museum’s possession. (“It was never in such a bad shape and I’m sick about it,” she writes.)

It isn’t until the very bottom of the third page that May gets to the matter that has attracted interest throughout the art world for the past 15 months:

“The Modern Art Museum will be sending you very soon some small paintings of mine which I am willing to loan the Museum indefinitely if you insure them!!”

The second painting she lists as “Au Bord de la Seine” by Renoir next to this price: $ 1,010.

The peacefulness of the Seine scene, depicted on a linen napkin, belies its tumultuous recent history.

The artwork by the French Impressionist master surfaced publicly in September 2012 when Marcia Fuqua, 51, of Lovettsville, Va., who is also known as Martha, said that she bought the artwork from the Harpers Ferry Flea Market in 2009 without being aware that it was an original Renoir.

She said it was her mother, who went by the names Marcia Mae Fuqua and Marcia Fouquet and who had a fine-art background, who urged her to have the painting appraised. Fouqet died Sept. 9 of this year.

The painting was authenticated by The Potomack Company, a Virginia auction house, which estimated the artwork’s value at between $ 75,000 and $ 100,000. An auction was scheduled for two weeks later, and the inquiries began pouring in from potential buyers internationally.

But the day before the painting was to be sold, the Baltimore Museum of Art produced documents indicating that the work had been stolen from what was then known as the Polk Gallery after the museum closed at 6 p.m. Nov. 16, 1951, and before 1 p.m. the following day.

The auction was called off. The FBI seized the painting and has been holding it in secure storage in Manassas, Va., until Judge Brinkema can resolve the ownership question.

For a time, it appeared that the painting’s rightful owner might have been the Fireman’s Fund Insurance Co., which paid the BMA’s $ 2,500 theft claim. However, last month, the insurance company transferred its rights to the artwork to the museum.

Diaz’s motion doesn’t dispute Fuqua’s account of how she came to acquire the oil painting. Or, if any doubt is expressed, it is delicately worded.

“Notwithstanding the ‘Renoir’ plate on the frame of the painting and the paper on the back indicating that it was by Renoir and entitled ‘Paysage Bords de Seine,’ Fuqua did not realize that the painting was an original Renoir at the time of her purchase or in the following years,” the motion reads.

“Even if she did purchase the painting at a flea market without knowledge of its authorship and/or title, her claim must still fail as a matter of law because the painting was stolen from the BMA.”

In Diaz’s motion, she provides documents indicating that the Renoir landscape was exhibited at the Baltimore museum at least twice: in March 1950 as part of an exhibit of the May Collection, and again in November 1951, when it was included in a show titled “From Ingres to Gauguin.”

It was during that show that the painting disappeared.

To bolster her argument, Diaz cites the example of a Tiffany sword dating back to the Civil War that vanished from Brown University sometime between 1974 and 1977. The sword was purchased in 1992 from an Illinois antiques dealer by a couple named Donald and Toni Tharpe.

After Brown discovered the whereabouts of the missing weapon, university officials sued to have the sword returned. The lawsuit was filed in the Eastern District of Virginia — the same district where the Renoir case is pending. Though the Tharpes argued that they had purchased the artifact in good faith, earlier this summer, Magistrate Judge Douglas Miller ruled that the sword belongs to the university and ordered it returned.

In her motion, Diaz argues that the case for the museum’s ownership of the Renoir is even stronger than the winning case presented by Brown University.

Unlike the theft of the sword, which was never fully documented, the Renoir painting was reported to have been stolen within hours after the theft was discovered. Diaz’s motion includes four separate documents alluding to the theft.

She argues that under “well-settled Virginia law” good-faith purchasers of stolen goods are out of luck.

“Ms. Fuqua could not have purchased good title to the painting and does not, therefore, have a valid claim to possession and ownership of the painting,” Diaz’s motion argues. “Her claim to possession and ownership of the painting must be dismissed.”

Fuqua’s attorney, T. Wayne Biggs, declined to comment Tuesday, though he is expected to file a formal response to the motion for summary judgment this month.

A motion for a summary judgment can be granted only if the germane facts in the case aren’t in dispute, if they are so clear-cut that a jury could reach just one possible verdict under the law.

That’s a steep bar for any attorney to surmount — and Fuqua’s attorney has yet to make his client’s case.

But, at a pretrial conference last week, Judge Brinkema might have given a hint as to her thinking. She told the attorneys: “This is a relatively straightforward, simple case. It shouldn’t take much time.”

She will hear oral arguments in the motion on Jan. 10.
