…St. Pauli has a new Girl, and her name is Katarina Van Derham?

St Pauli Girl Katarina Van Derham

After what must have been a very long and grueling search, St. Pauli has finally found their St. Pauli Girl for 2009, and it’s a “successful print and TV model” named Katarina Van Derham.

In case you were worried that the St. Pauli Girl was going to be anything less than perfect, just be happy to know that Katarina is 5’6” tall with blonde hair and blue-green eyes, is fluent in five languages including English, Slovak, Czech, Russian and Polish, has modeled for Vogue, Marie Claire, FHM and Iron Man, has been featured in ad campaigns for AT&T, Bicycle Casino, Rockstar Energy Drink and Dodge, is trained in Krav Maga, a military self-defense technique, enjoys kick-boxing, wrestling and playing basketball, volleyball and table tennis, and when she’s not modeling, she’s developing her own make-up line and working on architectural graphic design.

Oh, and she looks good in a Bavarian Beer Girl costume. (Holding Photoshopped beers if you look closely at the image above.)

…It’s TGI Friday: The Best Paper Airplane In The World?

Best Paper Airplane In The World

This weekend, spend a few minutes working your way through the 35 steps involved in folding the world’s most perfect paper airplane:

Once you’ve mastered the basics, you can then move on to making an alternative T-tail design, making it legal to fly in the world record paper airplane competition, making a Guinness World Records compliant tail, and more.

It’s definitely not the most advanced project, but sometimes it’s fun just to unplug from the rest of the world for a little bit and focus on the simple things in life.

…PleaseDress.Me is tee-rific?

PleaseDress.Me

PleaseDress.Me is the ultimate t-shirt search engine.

Designed by Gary Vaynerchuk (of winelibrary.tv fame), AJ Vaynerchuk, and Joe Stump (lead architect for digg.com), PleaseDress.Me allows you to sift through the vast expanse of online t-shirts using searches by keyword/tag, color, price, or even random generation if you’re feeling especially indecisive.

    PleaseDressMe is a classic example of scratching ones own itch. AJ, Gary, and Joe love finding great new tees, but finding said tees wasn’t the easiest thing in the world. Rather than sifting through multiple websites [they] figured why not just go to one website that makes searching t-shirts easy? Once [they] came to that conclusion, Joe went right to coding and after a few calculated keystrokes [they] brought in Chris to make it pretty. The result is the simple, concise t-shirt search engine.

In addition to being a tee-rific resource for shirt enthusiasts, PleaseDress.Me is also a fantastic example of how to use Web 2.0 methods of promotion to get your product into the public eye.

PleaseDress.Me has an account on Twitter, a custom Firefox search box plugin, customizable widgets, an easy vendor upload process, a Facebook page, an open API, a send to a friend feature, badges for shirt vendors to display, and a full gamut of social bookmarking options, including Facebook, Digg, Pownce, Twitter, Delicious, and StumbleUpon.

So besides being a great example of how to promote a new website, does it actually work?

To test it out, I typed in the word “Ninja”, clicked Search, and was greeted with the following results:

Ninja

A ninja playing a tuba, a teenage mutant ninja turtle in a shredder, a ninja and pirate shirt, and smurfs acting like ninjas?

I’d say it works pretty damn well.

Give it a shot:


Each result features the price, a more info button, a StumbleUpon button, a Facebook button, and a Buy Now button. Clicking on a result’s more info button gives you that shirt’s chosen tags, as well as related shirts that you can view as well.

All in all, I’d say that it’s a fantastic service that makes searching for and actually finding shirts you’re looking for a quick and easy process, and that anyone looking for that perfect shirt to complete that perfect outfit should definitely check it out.

Now PleaseDress.Me!
