ARG, “The International” and being a viral marketing pawn


Forgive the very nasal audio summary…I’m still getting over the latest flu.  Detailed recap is captured here:

I had no idea what ARG was before today.  It means Alternate Reality Game.  I found myself taking part in one today for “The International”, a movie on its way to theatres from Sony Pictures. 

It started with a friend who saw something interesting on the unfiction forum

 

 

Participants were instructed to go the Guggenheim Museum in NYC on November 25, 2008 and find a man in a hat at 1pm. 

Next we were given our “Security Brief” which instructed us to head to the obelisk in Central Park and note the first letter of a number of words on the southernmost translation plaque (we figured out this was Cleopatra’s needle) .

That directed us to another location in the park where a phone would ring every 15 minutes and provide the next location.

From there, we went to the Bethesda Fountain to find “relief” with more clues

Finally, we found our next destination – the Central Park Zoo, more specifically, the “little dog”, where we found our cache of “blood money”.

Much fun was had, including a payoff in foreign currency.  For me, I was intrigued by the integration of live action role play and viral marketing.

K.I.S.S.


Was losing faith in the #NAPODPOMO

Recording in Midtown, NYC while I wait for the next bus to go and see family

Sounds in the moving van…in the rain

Letting go and letting myself love, kicking and screaming at the zip codes and time zones

Morning always turns the focus wheel on what's important

I Want to Defy Time and Space


 

A day in the life…
Not including when I go out after work. 
Feeling exhausted and overwhelmed.

NY state of mind


Some Brooklyn sounds as I exit the subway station and walk home.

I had been reading an article in Time Out NY on "Essential NY" on the train and thinking about what I consider being a "New Yorker"

I keep it short, which is rare.

the curious incident of the dog in the night-time


The day after the election, I've nixed political talk in favor of a book review of the one I finished tonight…

the curious incident of the dog in the night-time, by Mark Haddin

My first attempt at a book review, via audio.  I now refer to this as "book babble".

Empathy vs. Sympathy

Get's a "walking while reading" rating

and I ponder what I will read next…

Baby Powder Goodness


 

Posting Post-Shower.

What do you think about in the shower?  I think about weird things…

This is not an advertisement; this is merely a musing on baby powder, and smell, and advertising…

Is there another product like baby powder?  Something you can use from birth to old age that just feels (and smells) so good?

Marketing/Invention brilliance and I don’t even want to eat it.

Wikipedia offers no insight on the matter.

The Challenge


A  Saturday evening in my Brooklyn apartment.  Not the most auspicious start, but something about a  podcast a day breeds quantity over quality.

Dan talks about Bob Larson

@robblatt and @danpatterson put me on the spot.  I threaten to beat up Dan Patterson and well, you can hear the sounds of marbles in the background.
