And the addy goes to…

ADDY_A_Gold

Us! Grats MKTG Cincinnati for grabbing a pair of silver Addy’s. The first was for a series of webisodes for StarKist tuna’s Tunavision campaign, brought to life through Proctor & Gamble’s word-of-mouth marketing initiative, Vocalpoint.

The second came for the global Web site of Bayer HealthCare’s CONTOUR® USB meter, the first blood glucose meter with plug & play technology. BayerContourUSB.com is currently live in eight countries and will launch in additional countries soon.

Vice President of Creative Tim Engle had this to say: “It’s always rewarding to win an ADDY and these two projects in particular were very exciting for the team to create. I think the work reflects that.” He then went on to thank the academy, various higher powers and his high school gym teacher.

I was one of THOSE people.

You’ve seen them, the bedraggled and hapless folks that network news features during WEATHER EVENTS–looking all pathetic as they wade through their flooded basements carrying soaked scrapbooking albums–treasures lost forever. In our house, we lost our electricity, but we found…a FAMILY.

A few hours of it left us giddy with the novelty and full of adventure. Then it got dark. Add another 30 minutes of candles and hurricane lamp fun. Then reality hit like a bottle to the face. No tv. And it’s cold. And the food is rotting. And, “How come you didn’t call for a hotel room earlier? Now it’s too late!” You suck. No, you suck.

An hour later, a camera would have found a once tight-knit family of five huddled separately in the flickering shadows, our begrimed faces peeking warily from layers of tattered clothing, the room reeking of fear and piss. Then the power came back on and we settled in to watch Lost.

Snow Run 2010

without comments


It was brisk that day; a mixture of not only cold, but wet, with a gusting wind, and foreboding overtone. Not a day for a run. Not a day for much of anything really. We were undeterred.

Our shorts were just that. Our arms, bared. The flag? Majestic.

We’d go over six miles that day, weaving our way through city streets blanketed with course salt and freshly fallen snow. We never really felt the cold, the sleet, the stares – only the pride. GBA.

The most biggest thing you never heard of ever before

with one comment

Five years ago, my house was filled with the helium-fueled screech of some kid on YouTube. It was Fred. Just a 9 year-old with his “alcoholic” mom’s cam and his finger on the warp-voice-to-chipmunk button. My kids thought he was brilliant.

I sat through about 20 of his YouTube videos. 1 was cute, 2 was enough and 3, was ice picks through my ears brings sweet relief. Despite me, Fred became a huge hit, and bigger news, after 5 years he still is. His top vid scored 38,000,000 hits, he’s #2 all-time YouTube-subscribed and he got a hugely advertised guest spot on Nickelodeon’s highest rated show, iCarly. He’s got a freaking iPhone app.

So keep an eye on Fred. He could end up ruling the world. Or he could wind up on the cover of OK! after forfeiting a $30 trillion P&G contract when he gets caught running a string of meth labs across the corn belt. Can’t wait to find out.
