This week, I opted out of Facebook’s (and a lot of other site’s) target advertising. You can visit this website built by the Digital Advertising Alliance to tell Facebook and other companies that you don’t want to receive specially targeted ads.
I read a bit about Father’s Day this morning. In 1916, President Woodrow Wilson wanted to make it an official holiday, but congress resisted, fearing it would become too commercialized. It wasn’t until 1972 that it was made a permanent national holiday when President Richard Nixon signed it into law.
Congress was right to be concerned. If my inbox is any indication as to the commercialization of the holiday, I have plenty of coupon codes for everywhere you can think of. Although, it appears that everywhere thinks that Dads are most interested in beer, bacon, fishing and zombies. So, Dads are basically a handlebar mustache away from being hipsters? Here are some photos of gifts being advertised that would make any father wish for a time machine and a vasectomy.

This week on Wasp & Pear on Tumblr, I posted vintage photographs of Seattle, New York and Hollywood; the art of Roy Lichtenstein, Paul Klee, Butcher Billy, Andy Warhol, and a few pictures of abandoned places.
