If you want to pay only $200 for a brand new $1800 wedding dress than this just may be what you are looking for! The Victoria Hospice fundraiser has got brides buzzing this week. There are about 85 gowns and some pretty nice bridesmaids dresses on the silent auction block and no…they didn’t fall off a truck. A local bridal boutique donated them and wants to see them go to good use.

A heartfelt tribute to Whitney by her Bodyguard co-star and dear friend. Kevin Costner hired her for the movie and also was the one who suggested she record one of his favorite Dolly Parton songs “I Will Always Love You”. The rest is history and unfortunately so is she. Very sad indeed.

What can we say. The world has lost another famous icon to alleged drugs and alcohol. Whitney Houston they say, had switched from the more unacceptable crack to a more PC prescription recipe. As many people who dismiss this as just another out of control celebrity who took one too many pills, there are some who by the tragedy, may be snapped out of their own delusion and see the error of the drug induced ways. One would hope that her loss may actually be the wake up call to those family and friends who may be struggling with their own demons. Sadly, the loss of Michael Jackson and Amy Winehouse in the span of three years did nothing to sober up this lost soul. In the end though, we will truly miss her and the joy she brought to so many. ~Forbes & Marshall

This is an example of Canadian creativity at work. This ad aired only in Canada during the Super Bowl but now has been noticed south of the 49th. Two amature hockey teams in Ontario showed up for a regular game that is always played to an empty rink. The teams had no idea what was about to happen. When the game started, the seats suddenly filled with adoring fans, jumbo screens, mascots and a TV crew complete with the play by play announcers. The players had the experience of a lifetime and some advertising agencies are calling it the “commercial of the decade” Bet you’ll have to watch to twice~ Forbes & Marshall

Madonna is back! Think what you want about her but she is a marketing genius. The vid is full of football players, sex appeal and religious imagery to make sure she pushes all the right buttons. Associate yourself with revelant artists like Niki Minaj and MIA and you may have something. ~Forbes & Marshall
