     Previously I said I was going to start up the links page but as of now nothing was ever put up. Attempting to go through all the Absolut sites at once turned out to be a bit boring and I never got through the amount of sites I wanted to. Now, the new plan is to add sites whenever I find them and have time to review them. There are three categories of sites: Featured Sites, Information Based Sites, and Fan Sites. Featured Sites are ones I consider to be unique and very useful to Absolut Collectors. Information Based Sites are sites similar to my own, who's main focus is to provide a resource for Absolut collectors to find information on Absolut Ads. Fan Based Sites are sites who's main goal is to generate trades with other users.

     Absolut is running a digital art contest of sorts with Shift and Vice magazines.

Unfortunetly this contest is only open to Canadian citizens 19 years of age or older. For more information check out the Absolut Digital Art website at

     While checking out the TBWA website I noticed an Absolut Case Study section. When the section first loads there is an interesting game where you are suppose to match the name of the ad with the picture shown. Who ever made it must not have been that familiar with the ad campaign though, the Absolut Au Kurant hair ad is simply labeled "Absolut Kurant". There are some ads I have'nt seen in a while on there though, so I thought it was pretty neat and worth a mention. Also, each time you play the game it loads new ads.
