Idea: a chain of popup stores. (I don't know what it even means, but it seems like everything is now either a chain or a popup store.)
I have never heard of Skins, but apparently it's a British teen drama on Channel 4. Somehow, they licensed Radiohead's "Nude" for the trailer, which makes it look like a teen Caligula, which in turn makes you wish you were in London. [via]
A couple days ago I found out about it because I'm subscribed to idents.tv. http://idents.tv/blog/2008/01/07/sbs-and-e4-show-some-skins/ has a higher resolution version as well as a completely different promo for it.

Funny, I just had an image of two screenplays... your prep school and my middle-of-North-Dakota high school... you'd get an Oscar, but I'd get a Spirit Award!

That's a cool trailer. I've seen a few episodes and it's more amusing than anything else. There's sex in it of course, but I'd actually class it as a comedy.

good lord if this stuff was on publicly-funded tv in the us, people would freak.
