LOST – Long Kiss Goodnight

Tags: abc, LOST, TV

As a loyal LOSTie, I was excited and saddened to watch the finale.  Excited to see how it would end…and sad to see how
it would end.  How can they wrap up six seasons of utter insanity in 180 minutes?
I won’t recap the show here, but I do have some insight:
The finale wasn’t about finishing the [...]

B is for Blogging, that’s good enough for me
Blogging, blogging, blogging starts with B!
If that sounds familiar, then you’ve been paying attention to Sesame Street!
(For those keeping score, this is my second Muppets-related PR/Social Media post - check out the first here)
Cookie Monster has always been one of my favorite characters.  Of course, as a kid, [...]

Twitter vs. Seinfeld

Tags: seinfeld, , soup nazi,

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 [...]

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.
When SPINdustry was first publicized, [...]

Timeshifting – Where do you draw the line?

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.  Since the Ravens usually play in the 1pm EST timeslot, timeshifting the game until later in the afternoon has given us some fantastic and productive afternoons.  [...]

While this space is generally used for adult conversation about the social media/public relations realm, every now and then, it’s important to take a step back and be a little silly.  This is one of those times.

Friday night, Conan O’Brien said goodbye to “The Tonight Show” after seven roller coaster months and NBC after an illustrious run that included a stint writing “Saturday Night Live” and a long tenure hosting “Late Night.”
The farewell was extremely classy given all the public outrage.  Let’s face it, Conan was never more popular than when [...]
