Inspiration @ Home

03/19/2020

If you have interest in seeing a truly remarkable Goo Goo Dolls live performance, watch this if you love #music.

Not my favorite pop song of all time…however, playing a lot of shows in the midwest “back in the day” I always heard from other musicians in the clubs that the #GooGooDolls were one of the hardest working bands on the circuit. They paid their dues straight up and this performance proves the awesome payoff.

This video is reminiscent of Prince’s Super Bowl in the rain except, this time with a way heavier – Buffalo New York worthy – summer downpour; their hometown by the way.

Unapologetic Advertising Remembrance

03/06/2020

Never gets old – “defiant in its performance” and “the most advanced production car on the planet” – I miss #advertising that was unapologetic and unabashedly advertising. View this 1984 master class here – https://youtu.be/CP7ijUkgc-4

Nike Ditches Amazon

11/18/2019

The devil is in the details here. In a practical sense, Nike moved this resource intensive work from Nike to third party players(s)- potentially in a move to a service like a NetRush. While this is a substantial shift, the Nike brand will still have to “deal with” a significant Nike brand presence on Amazon and all that still entails. Bad or incomplete listings, whack-a-mole third party sellers, counterfeits, etc.

There is no quick fix. This may be even a longer term negotiation tactic to drive awareness of the issue(s) for brands. It got a lot of attention.

The Art of Restoration

06/13/2019

My favorite house in Los Angeles has been fully restored!

For many years when I lived at Sunset and Normandie this incredible home was on my evening walking route in the Los Feliz hills. The home had fallen into disrepair and it was looking run down and sad.

It was featured in many films inc. Bladerunner and it was the The House on Haunted Hill.

Very happy to see the full restoration. Only 23 million, that’s all you’ll need. Love this house!
