To all readers of big, thick hardback books in my family: I received a copy of the Walter Isaacson’s biography of Steve Jobs from two different people, and while I am interested in reading the book, I will probably just download it onto my kindle. I would be happy to re-gift this to anyone interested in reading this hot new book. Happy Hanukah, Love, Dad
text message copywriter
Tracy: thoughts on - "im not trying to be annoying, but can you do me a favor and just let me know that you're alive please? im not sure what to make of your mia status..."
or is that too non-chalant in the event that something actually happened
me: leave out the annoying
because that invites the thought
choose a less sticky word
Tracy: the only reason i included that is that if it is me i dont want him to think im being stalker-ish
me: oh absolutely. just from a copywriting perspective im considering other word choices with a softer nuance
Tracy: okay im thesaurus-ing
Tracy: in addition to the text he has a missed call from me, so i feel like the sentiment should be there
i dont like peeve
long e's and the v are no good
and also, put the word on him
not on you
i dont mean to bug you
therefore its not you
its the act
im in work mode baby
BRAND TD: the voice of the text
Tracy: what about "sorry if im being too persistent, but..."
ha love it
except hate the current situation!
Tracy: and i feel like its okay to come off as a little insecure because guys like that they can "rescue" girls
me: "don't mean to be annoying but i want to make sure you got my previous comminiques...is everything ok
playing to the male ego
the vegetarian is an omnivore...of sorts
Bryan: So I heard the greatest quote ever. I think it describes us pretty well."I'm a pop culture omnivore."
Bryan: hipsters to other people
Bryan: but well read in modern popculture
Bryan: to us

Subject: Red Carpet Update
Date: Tuesday, December 13, 2011 7:22:25 PM ET From: Phil Darivoff To: Rachel, Sarah So far, major yenta convention, which is a step or two above a village idiots convention. Good popcorn and twizzlers. Dad
Bryan: how are your excel skills
me: fine not superstar
Bryan: can you make sense of this?
It won't even return the value fuck
Bryan: my formula is not working properly
me: well it depends on the situation, the value is constnatly changing
Bryan: take it easy einstein, this isn't relativity
me: (insert smile)
Bryan: there are no changing variables
just because you work at some super cool new age firm that somewhat resembles david bowies new romance movement in an awkward media agency parallel when compared with mine, does not mean you can poke fun at my excel power using skills
you marketing hipster
Digest it. Slowly.
TEDDY WAYNE’S UNPOPULAR PROVERBS
WRITING. A drop of ink may make a million think, though to be technically accurate, this isn’t printed, it’s just on the Internet, and with the fragmentation of modern media, I’d be surprised if it gets more than a few thousand readers and, let’s be honest, this isn’t very thought-provoking. So: An electronic display of characters may amuse a few thousand. Except the number of people actually...
Dear Rachel Good luck on your new start next week. I spent a lot of time looking at the Gyro website and wandering across the various links. If it is not just the hype it looks like a really neat organization and would be an exciting place to work. I felt it would be a nice fit for my beautiful granddaughter in its approach and philosophy. Of course I am probably just easy bait for a marketing...

Guy Beringer’s article, aptly titled “Brunch: A Plea,” extolled the virtues of brunch, principally because it would allow you to stay up later and get drunker on Saturday night and not be required to wake up early for breakfast. In his “Plea” he writes: Instead of England’s early Sunday dinner, a post-church ordeal of heavy meats and savory pies, why not a new meal,...
Things You Probably Won't Hear Me Say
1. Meet you for breakfast at 8? Could we make it 7:15? It’s just that it’s my day off and I have a ton of stuff to cross off of my to-do list. 2. I can’t even believe I’m saying this but, reggaeton is actually not that bad. I mean, it’s just that … it’s just way ahead of its time, is all. 3. Well, just between us astronauts… 4.
