Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

Annoying Frog Intl Superstar?

Annoying Frog is a bizarre little cartoon animal that yields crazy money in merch internationally. It made $79 million in 2005 on ringtones alone. If you check out the video at the link you'll see what a wild fusion of anime and dreamworks (the look not the comp.) can produce. While I watched I was thinking the frog was probably inspired by a friend of the guy who came up with the idea. Can't you see some annoying person with bad posture, a cheery disposition and wandering eyes inspiring annoying frog? Actually it was inspired by a viral youtube video of a Swedih teen impersonating a 2 stroke engine.
Let us know if you know any annoying frog fans. Maybe you'll embrace the frog if you check more footage of this intl phenomenon in action.
