The Wild World of Ideas and Start-ups

Wow! Where do the weeks go? We are living in truly remarkable times. It is amazing to me that there are so many people caught up with the "misinformation" that permeates the air waves and "blogosphere". For example, "global warming", I don't believe in it and trying to dialogue with someone caught up in the hysteria is unnerving. These are the people who fume with emotion when facing the facts that number in magnitude too difficult to ignore. For example, "true scientists" don't believe it (and they come under persecution for saying so), the sun volatility is something that we can't control and is responsible for the heat everyone is afraid of, and volcanoes emit more noxious gases than we ever could. The facts are that man can't have the type of impact the "worry warts" have placed on it, and nature itself is so immensley powerful that we put ourselves in too high a place for this, and "group think" permeates this group of "World Opinion". "World opinion" carries no weight with me, it has been wrong through out history and cost many millions their lives.

Let's change subject, now that I have stirred the pot little. I think Marketers need to challenge these "nay sayers" at every turn and we welcome your input. Another quick example. As a Former Marine, I believe the battle for America is at stake. I support the war on terror and pray for a "Patton" for our time to rise up and take leadership over this war. A friend of mine was killed in the '83 barracks bombing in Beirut, Lebanon and I am finally encouraged to see our nation strike back at the radical muslim culture that created the "suicide bombers" in the first place.

Now, can we agree that Marketing is warfare. These two examples are on tops of just about "everyone's mind". I guess I could bring in immigration and I do believe we need to protect our borders, but I won't.

So now, in the "Wild World of Ideas" I am finding that the warrior mindset has helped me to break through barriers and challenge the "middle of the road" brain clog that permeates our culture. I am a doer. That has created a funnel of opportunities for me and mine. My founders met this week, to agree that we have the opportunity to change Marketing for the better and we are excited about what the future has in store. I personally am not afraid of global warming, the talk of war, the fear overpopulation, or failure. For many of us, I believe we are living in times of break-throughs. It is past time to claim yours! Make history, be the one making it and don't let the media (news will always be bad) or anyone else stop you from your progress. Remember, when everyone thinks a certain way, it is usually time to change and go the other way. If you are an idea person, you will understand this. God's speed. Get caught up in THE VORTEX!

An "Off the Cuff" Interview with Miltonio at The Gingerman

Oddly, I was wearing no cuffs for this interview with musician, Miltonio. The Gingerman (Houston, Texas) has always been a great place to enjoy a fine beer, listen to the jukebox, and hang out with friends. So, I had a chance to catch up with Miltonio as he prepares to release his new CD "Union", now available on Thank you Cisco Dowdell, for shooting this clip. How do you like the Ferrari, baseball cap?

"Kathie doesn't shave anymore" - TV Commercial Now Airing

Okay, we had fun with this commercial too! I make a cameo (you only see the back of my head), where Kathie's husband tells everyone that "Kathie" doesn't shave anymore. We are looking at carrying the story on as she and her husband plan to see the kids at college, plan for a weekend getaway, or a film shoot on a 50 foot yacht. Stay tuned and get caught up in THE VORTEX!
