You know your guilty of it. Every time the Holiday’s roll around the big questions gets asked, “What do you want this year”… and you reply with some stupid passive response like “I need some work clothes”, “Gift cards are great” or roll the dice with “I don’t know”.
The reality is you couldn’t possibly tell Nana you really want a gift card to the Mustang Ranch in Nevada, One of those life-size silicone sex dolls or a year prescription to doublesideddildos.com. Well, during our last WGUB meeting we did a quick round-table discussing all of the gifts we really want this ChristHannakwanza.
Let’s just say it how it is, Jimmy Fallon may be the funniest host of the Tonight Show ever! Okay, okay… we may get some flack for that comment, but in my opinion home-skillet is totally destroying it (in a good way)!!! He’s consistently going viral with his funny-as-hell skits, interviews and set clips… renewing the Tonight Show franchise as something relevant for the new generation of TV (or in our case, Hulu) watchers… and bottom line, making an interview show cool again. Whether you’re 20 or 55 he creates laugh-out-loud (real mean don’t “LOL”) moments in nearly every show… and for those reasons we’re calling Jimmy Fallon the man who saved Late Night!
Which, of course, earns him the highlighted feature:

As if you thought we would forget, please let us be the first to wish you a very happy Dewey Decimal Day! We hope that you got the invitation to our party celebrating the birthday of Melvil Dewey, who invented the Dewey Decimal system that is used by libraries. What’s a library? Back in the day city governments set up large meccas to printed books. I know kids, seems so old-fashioned right? All the dust, the books smelling like your grandma, and that bitchy librarian telling you to be quiet all the time.
So in honor of the day, put down the Kindle or Ipad and pick up one of those things with two covers and a bunch of paper in them.
“The only true equalisers in the world are books; the only treasure-house open to all comers is a library; the only wealth which will not decay is knowledge; the only jewel which you can carry beyond the grave is wisdom.” (J.A. Langford)
Whether you’re trying to land the perfect job for your skill-set or are 25yrs into a lifer career, we have what may be considered the resume booster of a life-time! Yes, it’s a promotional gimmick… but it just may be the best promotional gimmick we have EVER seen.
The video below explains it all, but the elevator pitch version is this… Grand Prize is Liam Frickin Neeson creating a video detailing YOUR unique set of special skills to share with the world. I want to make sure you understood that. LIAM NEESON WILL RECORD A VIDEO FOR YOU, TELLING THE WORLD ABOUT YOUR SKILLS. I’m beyond words at this point. Just Watch (and then get your ass over to the page and enter):
It’s hard to know just how this piece of cinematic brilliance came into being… but my Christmas just got a whole hell of a lot better after seeing it! Hell, I want to re-watch every classic Christmas TV special now and imagine what I can mix… Die Hard and Rudolph? Goonies and Jack Frost? The opportunities are endless! For the time being though… enjoy “Elf Boot Camp” (sound from full metal jacket set to elf video)
Not going to lie… the first time I saw this trailer I was a little “Meh”. That being said, the more I see and learn about “Kingsman: The Secret Service” the more I’m drawn in. Awesome marketing or a great movie? That is yet to be seen. I am cautiously optimistic with this one. You thoughts?
(PS – this is a Red Band trailer… so headphones on at work!)
