So a bunch of us decided to check out Glow Saturday night.
Here's what the website said: Glow will fill the hours between dusk to dawn (7p-7a) with compelling, enchanting and effervescent sights and sounds situated in spaces and times that expand possibilities for where, how and when the public experiences…Continue
After a nice walk around the PDC, it's great to sit down and have a nice lunch at this chic little joint called Red Seven. (Puck's 7th restaurant in LA.) They are definitely going with the modern style here.
Service was very good as was the food...Puck brings us his take on… Continue
I've always been really curious about that big old blue building right on Melrose called the Pacific Design Center. It's enormous and a little intimidating - I've never been sure if I could even step in.
In order to debunk some myths, I found the Director of Pacific Design Services, Lynda Brenner, who was kind enough to set aside an hour with me and Sam… Continue

I have this thing about advertising - make it entertaining - make it funny, interesting or educational! Nike is able to pull off educational really well with Nike Lab —a Beijing Games-themed site offering a look at 28 Olympic sports, the Nike-sponsored athletes who will compete and 40 game-changing technologies.
Our good friend Tony, who coincidentally told us that Gyu-Kaku was the bomb, also recommended this French restaurant named La Cachette. Now mind you, I am not a big French food fan. In fact, we went to Paris about a year ago and I almost swore it off for good. I did go to… Continue
When I first decided I would jump ship from my life of security - good pay, a great team I had helped build, a 8a-5p job that let me check out, mentally, after the day was over, some may have thought I was crazy. Somewhere deep inside of me though, I was stagnating, almost suffocating. I didn't have an outlet, I didn't feel like I was contributing to a greater good, I didn't see a career, I saw a job.
But that moment where you think you can do it, where you jump feet first into the… Continue
She is a force to be reckoned with. As an author and founder of the #1 blog, the Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington is kicking butt and taking names. She's a former right winger who now calls herself a progressive populist. Outspoken, bold, brash - she is not only embracing change she's… Continue
A new video has been uploaded to the player - about 8 min, so a little long, but so good.
A father says goodbye to his young daughter and leaves. As the wide Dutch landscapes live through their seasons so the girl lives through hers. She becomes a young woman, has a family and in time she becomes old, yet within her there is always a deep longing for her father.
Father and Daughter is a film about longing, the kind of longing which quietly, yet totally,… Continue

One of my favorite clips is on the music player, as well.
I found DJ Sleeper (aka Ken Chen on Facebook) through Alex, who found me through David Armano's twitter about one of my blog posts. His style is similar to DJ AM's or DJ Z-Trips...I love the songs he mixes together.
But more than that, there is an appreciation for his skill - the way he uses his… Continue
I shot this with my Canon camera.
I missed a few seconds in the beginning, FYI, 'cause I was fumbling around trying to find my camera. Just loved how Google used legos to convey a message to the ad industry. It's completely disarming and even kind of… Continue
So after a long day at the Beverly Hills Hotel for the Ad Age Conference I dragged my tired big booty to the BPM anniversary party. Thank God Duc took me 'cause I would not have made it there. Vic and… Continue
So yesterday, I played with my new TypePad app on my iPhone and was able to upload pictures and text updates right from the conference (that went to my Facebook status, Twitter and blog). It was so much fun! I felt like a pseudo-reporter with my handy dandy iPhone! When YouTube and Google broke the news about the new content deal with Lions Gate I typed as quick as I could to get the news out, even beating… Continue

I met Kaz through John Baumgartner, a filmmaker that I happened to sit next to at Pippin months ago. John and I started to chat it up and he told me that I had to meet this girl named Kaz. That weekend, Kaz emailed me and told me that she was not only working at a very cool… Continue
Speaking of picking yourself back up (see past blog post). According to Variety, Miss Jackson is going to star in a reality TV show on MTV, helping America find its next pop star. Janet, I really do believe that you had Justin rip off that patch during the Superbowl to take attention away from your troubled brother, Michael. Conspiracy… Continue
