Are You Into Trucking? Try These Fantastic Trucking Headsets!

Trucking is an immensely tiring and tough job as you need to have quick reflexes and laser-focused concentration, as taking your eyes off the road for a mini second can cause a massive accident. Commercial trucks are quite heavy, so you need to keep both hands on the wheel so that the truck stays on the road and doesn’t get off track. Along with handling the wheel, a trucker also has to stay connected with the manager and his family over the phone, but leaving the wheel to make or…

Houston’s Cameron Symphony Explorer’s Concert

We recently went to Jones Hall to enjoy the Cameron Symphony Explorers Concerts. Since Dad plays cello and double bass and we put an emphasis on music in the home, we have been to the symphony many times in the kids’ lives. Plus, we regularly play classical music and learn about significant composers. But, we had not yet experienced the Houston Symphony’s educational outreach programs so this was a first. The verdict? If you get the chance, you must go. The first thing that struck me was the finely honed…

Three Movies You May Have Missed

Bartleby This independent film is a modern adaptation of Herman Melville’s short story, “Bartleby, the Scrivener.” Though written in the 19th century, Melville’s story has a 20th century flair, exploring the themes of human isolation and alienation in the workplace. Consequently, it translates well into the modern office setting, though one might wonder how a full-length film could be made from a short story such as this. The filmmakers, however, succeeded rather well. The movie is unusual, often interesting, and occasionally quite funny. Though hardly a masterpiece, it is a…

Leave Alec Baldwin Alone

Yet another “news” story that drives me nuts. What is the fascination with Alec Baldwin’s marital and family problems? I am all for knowing a bit about the entertainers that show up on the big small screens, but diving into their problems is not what I consider news or even remotely entertaining. Are we just so enthralled by peeking into these famous peoples’ lives? Do we get a kick out of seeing that yes, even famous people have problems? Maybe deep down (or perhaps not so deep) we want to…

Neither Shaken Nor Stirred, How Bond’s Brand Stayed True While Changing

King's Island

We’ve been on a James Bond kick recently, and with Skyfall breaking the record for biggest Bond film opening weekend, it’s worth discussing how the brand has evolved. More than once in my relatively brief advertising career, I’ve heard the words “It should be sort of… sort of James Bond-ish.” or “You know Double-O seven s%@*, man.” The iconic character that became a brand has evolved into an adjective. And this is the greater truth. After almost 60 years of being in existence, the James Bond brand is one of…
