Whirlwind Paris Ad Tour, Part 1

My Partner-In-Crime and I spent Memorial Day weekend on a whirl-wind tour of Paris.  And while he was snapping photos of iconic landscapes and architectural structures, of course, in Media Nerd fashion, I took pics of interesting ads and media.

Random post. On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, I volunteered with the United Way to pass out door tags to lower income apartment communities in south Orlando.  All in all, the organization passed out 10,000 of these tags which will hopefully help put money back in families pockets.  I'm really glad we did it that… Continue reading Advertising that helps and advertising that made me “SMH”

Compilation of South of the Border Billboards (i.e. Getting the Parents to Play With the Cameras on Their Phones)

So I thought that it would be a great idea (a great Media Nerdy idea) to try to take as many pictures of the South of the Border billboards on our drive up to North Carolina to visit my aunt and uncle.  And I thought it would be a really funny idea (a really kid-laughing-as-parents-embrace-technology… Continue reading Compilation of South of the Border Billboards (i.e. Getting the Parents to Play With the Cameras on Their Phones)
