You Can’t Beat the Tweet

As a lover of social media, I’ve always been a really big advocate of Twitter. A lot of my less-then-savvy friends taunt and chide me for using it, thinking it’s nothing but “Facebook Status Updates”. I always tell them that there is so much more to it! Twitter is quite possibly one of the most … Continue reading

These Ads Are Anything But Cheesy.

Ahh Cheetos, the delightfull snack I used to munch upon in my childhood. All I can really remember though are the ads with the tag-line “Dangerously Cheesy”, a slogan I’ve never been fond of. On a side-note though, for years I’ve been trying to find a willing person to down a copious amount of Cheetos … Continue reading

Parents Just Don’t Understand

Now I know I said I was devoting this week to be all about me, but this was just too good to pass up. As I’ve said previously I’m really interested in advertising and marketing (I do intend to get a job in it after all), and while drinking my Perfectly Pumpkin cup of coffee … Continue reading

Week of Connell Day One

One thing I really enjoy, and have for a very long time is film. So much so that years back I was inspired to create my own (albeit amateur) films for some creative fulfillment. I would say I’m a lover of classic film genres such as westerns and filme noir, much to the disdain of … Continue reading
