Beauty: Who Is Defining It?

This ad was highlighted in the WSJ (may require subscription) as one of the best of 2007. I really like this ad. Like the content and the greater message that is delivers. As you will see, we marketers have gone overboard to lie and cheat to create the fiction that is beauty. If you’ve got […]

Chainsaw Screams Highway to Hell

Amy and I attended the Billy Joel concert with a couple of friends in Salt Lake City on November 29th, 2007.
