Get Your Goosebumps Ready, This Song is THE SONG OF SONGS.

Some of the most precious moments can happen at work. Just now, while researching for an upcoming presentation on Social Media and ROI, my co-worker and I tripped a song fantastic. We were listening to KCRW’s streaming audio, live from Austin…

Rockstar: Hey, talking to national builders and shit? Allow me to get all mushy for a sec.

Me: Ok

Rockstar: Because I’m majorly hungover, and just got done being very Irish for a night and Alex Chilton died, but I’m proud of you! You’re doing cool things, and it’s gonna keep going for you.

Me: Awww. Rockstar, I know your drunk right now, but that means a lot to me. Also, this remix of “Home” is making me wanna cry. This version is amazing. I like the other one too, but this is AWESOME.

Rockstar: Yeah, this is really good! I wonder who did this.  NO ONE TOLD ME THERE WERE REMIXES

Me: OH MY LORD. I want this in my ear space for all timez. If I ever get married  this is my song. I’m super cereal too.

Rockstar: It would be a perfect wedding song –  it’s a very timeless song.

Me: Fuck it’s so good

Rockstar: I’ll tell you a secret. When he says “jade, there’s something I never told you about that night…”  and talks about how he was falling in love with her…when she reacts

I believe that they didn’t rehears it

AND FURTHERMORE

that he really never did tell her that until just then!

…but I’m stupid

me: I just got goosebumps. Im serious. I love her voice.

I wish I was her.

Fuck

I hate myself

I wanna live in this song

Rockstar: Did you google it?! We need it!

Me: I’m looking, I’m looking!

Moore for Your Money: How Social Media Sold a Home in Less than a Week.

This is another post I shared on my company’s blog. I really like the story though, so I thought I would share it here as well.

*******

Many of my clients and contacts are interested in learning how Social Media can assist with home sales. It’s a question that comes with a lot of preconceived notions about social technologies—i.e. that they are only used to update friends with what you had for breakfast—as well as some deep-seated fears of transparency and the potential for negative feedback.

However, if you take the plunge and trust in the power of social networks, community and honest sales, then these new methods of sales and customer service can have an immediate and positive effect on your business. Be it small, large or even for a one-time exchange, Social Media is a powerful tool.

Need an example? Tim Moore, digital solutions specialist for the New York Times Company, recently tried a cool sales experiment that shows the kind of impact that social technologies can have. Moore set out to sell his home in 72 hours or less using only social tools—no realtors, only connections. And how did it go?

His home did not sell within 72 hours—it sold within 50.

“You’re Meme T’Me / Why Must You Be Meme T’Me” – Dean Martin

Oh man.

So me and my cell mate (who shall remain nameless for his protection – he’s a pretty famous rock star) decided that the best way to close out a hectic work week is to memeify ourselves. Below are some besties of the day.

Confused by a few? Whatever, you’ll get over it. Just laugh like you do when someone tells an inside joke you don’t understand but you wanna be accepted by them so you laugh…a little too hard. Then everyone looks at you and it’s even more awkward than if you had just nodded and waited for the next topic to come up. God, you’re sucha weirdo sometimez. FACT: Z’s at the end of words make them 45.62% funnier.

I was surprised by an edit cell mate had made. This seemed like the most natural way to express my taken abackedness.

At some point today I said "they touch lips" and I fell in love with the phrase. Hence, the most amazingly suave frog of all timez.

Somebody in our office steals our milk from the fridge. This does not make me laugh. However, this kid getting all pissed about it did make me laugh. Still outta milk though.

I am the Social Media Manager for my company. I also love the movie Jurassic Park. Laughter rumbled something awful in my belly..

Cell mate was just being a jerk with this one after he read something I had to draft for my ultra-mega-radical marketing efforts.

Girls Finally Able To Express Their Crushing Angst Through Play (Mad Men Barbies Coming Soon)

Yes, these are real and yes, they will soon be available for purchase. Here’s the original story.

He Always Haimed High: RIP COREY

Vampires, werewolves, driver licenses – you name it, he killed it. He partied hard and seemed to have no shame. He will be missed by movie geeks that make references their friends and family never get. A moment of silence for Mr. Corey Haim.
