Took this shot on set of the “Hold On ‘Til The Night” video shoot. I am so happy and excited for you all to see this video. It is different from anything I have ever done. I shot the video all in black and white and created something that was more artsy and uplifting! I just got the first rough cut of the video a couple days ago and freaked out! It still needs a little work, but it already looks fantastic! In this picture you can see the outlines of some lightbulbs…I don’t want to give too much away, but I can tell you this video is about lighting up a new generation. It is coming very soon everyone! Get prepared for the video of “Hold On ‘Til The Night”!!

Since no one appears to be champing at the bit for dolls of Nina Totenberg and the “Car Talk” guys, Knell must devise some other way either to “liberate public radio from untenable reliance on fed dollars” — the unexpected recommendation expressed recently by his predecessor — or persuade skeptics in Congress that the national radio network deserves taxpayer support.

I am a realtor. I do not get unemployment. Last year B of A told my clients they did not quoalify for a loan mod, so they listed with me to sell their homes. Two months later, in Nov of 2010, B of A called all of my clients without telling me promising them they could keep their homes if they paid $2500. B of A LIED and took the houses back anyway, thereby costing me $30,000 in commissions which in turn caused me to default on all of my debt- including my home. I was forced to move in with my parents at the age of 32. I am the 99%.
RIP, Steve Jobs.

Here’s why I’m so angry at Julie Moos’s unjustifiable attack on Jim Romenesko: the way that she’s so fucking certain that she’s right and he’s wrong, and the way that she hammers this home over and over again:
I now know that Jim Romenesko’s posts exhibit a pattern of incomplete attribution…
