Tags: blog, blogging, cookie monster, PR, public relations, sesame street
B is for Blogging, that’s good enough for me
Blogging, blogging, blogging starts with B!

You won’t admit it publicly, but it’s OK. I’ll take care of it.
You LOVE Rick Astley.
No shame in it. Great pop artist from the 1980s who, despite being the punchline for countless jokes has always seemed like an easy-going, play-along-with-it kinda guy.
His most famous song, of course, is “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Here is [...]

A few weeks ago, our cable and Internet went out for a few days. We usually watch some TV before bed, so with TV not an option, I popped in a Seinfeld DVD. Then another. And another. And another.
Over the past 14 nights, I’ve seen about 35-40 episodes of one of [...]

For the past few months, I’ve tweeted “Stuck In Your Head” songs of the day. These are the tunes that somehow get stuck between your ears and hang out there for an eternity. You may HATE the song, but it’s there. Nothing you can do about it. So just enjoy the music and let is [...]

The final act of the Vancouver Olympics captivated a continent. In a thrilling contest, perhaps the best game possible on the biggest stage in sport, Canada’s hockey team withstood the challenge of the surprising Team USA. Despite a last-minute regulation USA goal, Sydney Crosby’s overtime tally sealed the gold medal for the red-and-white.
And the buzz [...]

SPINdustry: Viewer Discretion Is Advised
A few days ago, E! premiered SPINdustry, a “reality” show that was supposed to show life as an entertainment PR professional. I have a
background in entertainment and sports public relations so I was excited to watch it.

Some days I listen to the radio, others I listen to my iPod. I’m sure you do the same thing.
A few days ago, I enjoyed the mix as I got off the DC Metro and walked through the streets of Chinatown.
[Confession – I used to be a Bar Mitzvah DJ, so I’ve got a weird [...]

Tags: DVR, LOST, Sports, tivo
For the past few years, I’ve done something that many of my friends think is insane: I’ve recorded football games in order to spend quality time with my family.
