I am probably not gaining many new friends by making fun of all of the sunshine and rainbows memes about creatives that are flooding the internet these days, but I seriously cannot stop. That is why in this installment we look at the best ways to manage creatives in real life.
Following in the giant-ish footsteps of The 7 Real Signs of Creative Peoples and 8 Business Adages For Better Businessing, may I present to you: 6 Key Tactics To Managing Creatives In Real Life. Continue reading
Since no one actually pays attention to me on Twitter, I started posting Random Snippets of Dialogue from stories that I will never write. That morphed a bit over that initial 10 posts to something slightly more interesting to me – Twitter-sized character studies. In effect, short stories of 140 characters or less. This is the fourth bunch of 10 that I have posted so far.

While attending CES in 2011 for work, I tweeted my adventures, but since I am fundamentally a very boring person in real life, I figured it made sense to tweet my fake adventures too, just to make it interesting to others. Here are my #FakeCES tweets (my real #CES tweets are super boring). Continue reading
I have a bad habit of summing up complex professional situations with made up on the spot business adages that we all then groan about. In an effort to keep track of those sayings and create easy and semi-empty content for my blog so that I have something to post to my different social networks (especially LinkedIn – because that is the biggest pain in the butt of them all to manage), I thought it would be fun to post some of them here.

For the longest time I have wanted to program a monthly film series. I got kinda close with Channel 801, the short film showcase I did with Jamie Maxfield and Andrew Jensen at Brewvies in SLC, Utah, until the venue became too difficult to work with.
What I think would be very cool to do, is a monthly Dream Double Feature – program two movies back to back that are related in theme, or plot, or location, etc. Here are my first 10 suggestions for something like that, which were originally posted on my Twitter feed. Continue reading
I have been tweeting short 140 character Movie Reviews since I got on Twitter. I have alternated between taking great pride in boiling down a complex opinion about something to a short, but thoughtful tweet and feeling lamely self-important about it.
This third set of reviews (the first set can be found here and the second set can be found here) span the period from September 1, 2013 to April 10, 2014. There are 52 of them and they are all in chronological order (rather, the order in which I tweeted them).
And now, may I present to you… A Bunch Of Twitter Movie Reviews – Part 3: Continue reading
After I posted my review of Muppets Most Wanted (as a series of Bullet Points) here, I shared it on FB and it created some great conversation on how the new generation of Muppet Movies compare to our childhood love of the Muppets. Since we are all old, that basically dates back to the original movies and TV series, as well as their premier on Sesame Street.
I thought it would be fun to just post the thread here for posterity’s sake. Continue reading
