Chow is an online food and lifestyle site that thinks of itself as the Rolling Stone Magazine of food sites. They do profiles on the marriage of bacon and chocolate, they have cheeky shows with names like "You're doing it all wrong" and offer provocative how-to's like how to make sexy drinks for Valentine's Day.

I have this blog post that I want everyone's opinion on. And I'm wondering if we can all just get around a table and take a look at it. That way we can treat it like a group exercise where everyone gets to feel valued and important and we walk... Continue reading

This spot was originally created to run all over Times Square in NYC. Obviously, it needed to be visually arresting to catch the attention of tourists walking around in one of the most visually stimulating places on earth. So I came up with this idea of a woman physically getting... Continue reading

TRX is a dynamic functional training company started by a former Navy SEAL Squadron Leader Randy Hetrick. While he was in the field fooling around with some parachute webbing and rubber boat tools in an effort to figure out how keep his body fit, he stumbled on what has now become one of the premier training products in sports, the US military and gym chains all over the world: The TRX Suspension Trainer.

Many businesses, designers, and marketers often take a, “type goes here,” approach to their communications. And when they’re done with a piece, it certainly does look and sound done. Sometimes it’s even flawless. But the question is, “Does it work as well as it should?” Nope. Continue reading

Hey Jason. I understood the word to mean a smaller group of people with a belief system that's outside of the mainstream. Not that I think the mainstream is all that great either, frankly. but I wonder why the word would irritate you if it's meaning truly is so generic and all encompassing. I guess what I'm saying is that to organize your life around a bunch of things that some guy wrote down over a hundred years ago relating to some things that other people wrote down over two thousand years ago is just wacko. It's fine with me though as long as you keep your beliefs to yourself, but you don't. Or at least your church doesn't. And that is not OK. See Prop 8 in California - which your church funded to impose its belief system on the populace. It's a bunch of over-moralizing arrogant power mongers riding white horses under the banner of some arrogant overly-judgmental god that they invented. Typical.

Your competition. There's an interesting notion as an umemployee. As you cop a squat at your computer and battle the odds for a shot at the coveted interview, how much time do you actually spend thinking about the other people who are going to score the interview for that same... Continue reading

I've been pondering life's lessons lately. Namely that we do need to stop and take stock in the lessons that we've learned or else we run the risk of not really conciously learning them. Opportunities for growth happen all the time (especially as an unemployee), and yet we might just... Continue reading

I simply can't stress enough how vital fitness is for the unemployee. Hence, I'll be hammering it into this blog over and over again. I just stumbled on an interesting site called Random Abs that concocts a daily workout for you that uses NO equipment. You can do it anywhere... Continue reading

I used to pride myself in asking screwball interview questions that would take people off guard. I wanted to see how they would be able to think under pressure. Posing standard questions doesn't usually test that because a lot of people have their responses to those ready to go in... Continue reading

It's important to stop sometimes during your adventures as an unemployee and pose a few questions to yourself to help you stay on track. Here are my top ten: 1) Am I spending enough time on my job hunt? If you're spending less than 20 hours a week, you might... Continue reading

THAT is the Triple Murder Burger from The Haven Brother's Diner in Providence, Rhode Island. I did some research and was unable to find out exactly what is in this killing spree of a meal. But I did find that it falls in the triple cheeseburger genus of the species... Continue reading

In 2010, I interviewed down at Palm for the Global Director of Brand Strategy job the day the company was bought by Hewlett Packard. Poor timing, but whatareyagoannado? I'm actually not quite sure if they ended up hiring anyone for the job. What I do know is that the recruiter... Continue reading

Hey Always Chris, I do understand the historical reference, I just chose to make fun of the other meaning and ignore that reference. Regarding your regurgitation of the US Constitution, thanks for that. Speaking of ignoring, the point you're making ignores the fact that the various meanings and intents are wide open to interpretation. And that's a good thing - so that we can interpret it in a way that's relevant to our times. It's part of what makes the thing a living document - not just that it can be amended, but also that it can be applied to different contexts easily and still provide guidance. And guidance is the operative word. I don't think strict constructionism would work for any 230 year old document. It's too brittle, too inflexible, too, I don't know, Koran-like. I will grant you that getting government OUT of our lives is a good thing. But I do not want government to leave me all alone with Corporate America, because those fuckers want to suck me dry.

We stand for hope. But since hope isn’t a viable business strategy, we also stand for careful research, planning, attention to detail and follow through. That said, it’s hope that keeps us on track, makes us competitive and keeps fuel in the tank of our self-esteem. We believe in the... Continue reading

When the last day of school was over, and we went to bed, the next morning i woke up at 6:00! I read, I wondered what to do, and finally, when mom woke up i told her i could not wait like this every single summer day. Dad came in, suggested i could write a book. I said sure. He said he was going to get some coffee and when he gets back have three story ideas. When he came back, I had three story ideas (including the poem book). A kid who is trying to find his long-lost father,... Continue reading
