Two spectacular videos for your Thursday + Remainders and an RIP

Have you joined my incredibly non-annoying, once-in-a-while email newsletter?

Thanks to Josh Friedlander over at American Madness, I started my morning (after being bitch-slapped by my trainer for over an hour) with this, one of the funniest videos I’ve ever, ever seen. And the totally brilliant thing about this video, is that I was EASILY able to replace, in my mind, all four characters in this video with actual people I know. Brilliant. Give yourselves ten minutes to laugh. Presenting The Hipster Olympics, from Williamsburg, Brooklyn. (Strengths: Small carbon footprint. Weaknesses: Banana Bread.)

Next, we have something funny I put together last night. Lesson? Don’t jump through clouds. PR lesson analogy? Know your target and how to get to it before you start pitching. Watch to the end. It’s worth it.

RIP, Luciano Pavarotti, dead at 71. First opera I saw in NYC at age 9, was with him. I was very fortunate.

If you were U.S. Senator Sam Brownback’s (R-KAN) public relations chief, how would you handle this photo being linked off Drudge? Comments and thoughts welcome.

In what can only be described as payback for us New Yorkers giving crap to people who live in Hurricane Alley, NYC is potentially going to be hit with a Hurricane next week. No. Seriously. Karma is real.

Gonna buy an iPhone now? It’s $200 cheaper. Gotta wonder how pissed all those people who waited on line are… Greg? Mike? How pissed are you?

Bye bye, Business 2.0. Hello FortuneBusiness2.0… Otherwise known as… Fortune.

Finally, a quote on Second Life that I heard at a conference that I find truly funny as hell:

“There’s all this talk about Second Life. So I figured I’d join, and get good and host a conference in Second Life. So I joined. And I started walking across a bridge. Then I fell in the river. And there I sat, for six hours, trying to figure out how to get out of the river. As far as I know, I’m still there. And I’m thinking, “this can’t be good for business.””

With that, I bid you a good Thursday.
