Praise for the Moleskine notebook

I've carried Moleskine notebooks in my pockets, backpacks, bags, glove compartment, etc. since college. I discovered them at a little store in Lawrence, KS and have since filled numerous styles and sizes with random thoughts, song lyrics, sketches, parts of ideas and phone numbers (so much classier than plugging a number into your cell phone).

One of my favorite blogs, Church of the Customer, has a great post on the beloved Moleskine and how it rose from the dead to become one of the most loyalty-commanding brands in the creative world. Sit in an ad agency brainstorm and you're sure to see a couple (more than likely different styles even) on the table. Fresh off an acquisition, I hope Moleskine will choose to stay the course and continue inspiring its artistic evangelists (and listening to their conversations).

Go get yourself a Moleskine. Keep it close to the flesh and fill it with whatever your brain commands. For inspiration, see this awesome Flickr community, devoted to the notebook and check out this blog, Moleskinerie.

Listening to - Chromeo, She's In Control. They played a funk-tastic set at Bleeding Kansas.
