Nike Ditches Amazon


The devil is in the details here. In a practical sense, Nike moved this resource intensive work from Nike to third party players(s)- potentially in a move to a service like a NetRush. While this is a substantial shift, the Nike brand will still have to “deal with” a significant Nike brand presence on Amazon and all that still entails. Bad or incomplete listings, whack-a-mole third party sellers, counterfeits, etc.

There is no quick fix. This may be even a longer term negotiation tactic to drive awareness of the issue(s) for brands. It got a lot of attention.

The Art of Restoration


My favorite house in Los Angeles has been fully restored!

For many years when I lived at Sunset and Normandie this incredible home was on my evening walking route in the Los Feliz hills. The home had fallen into disrepair and it was looking run down and sad.

It was featured in many films inc. Bladerunner and it was the The House on Haunted Hill.

Very happy to see the full restoration. Only 23 million, that’s all you’ll need. Love this house!
