I Do Not Like This – Facebook Mystery Likes December 13th, 2012 @ 12:30 pm PST
I have been telling a friend of mine for a few weeks now that I do not “like” Zoosk, the internet dating site. He’s not the only one who questioned why that news appeared in his Facebook feed. It’s even more annoying because I’m quite happily married, which is — of course — why people […]
Amazon Kindle Commercial May 24th, 2010 @ 6:11 am PDT
Is this not theft?
How You Like Me Now? March 16th, 2010 @ 7:15 am PDT
There’s an excellent Kia Sorento commercial right now featuring a sock monkey and a monster (and some other kid toys). They go bowling and the sock monkey gets a tattoo. The best part, though, is the song. It’s How You Like Me Now, by The Heavy. You can find it on the album The House […]
Fixing Radio Advertising December 18th, 2009 @ 7:31 am PST
With the exception of NPR, I no longer listen to the radio. It might be more accurate to say that there simply is no more FM radio, because here in Los Angeles — where it seems every station claims to have 20, 30, 40, or 50-minute “rock blocks” — I invariably hear nothing but 8, […]
Deadly Side Effects October 30th, 2008 @ 10:09 pm PDT
I just saw a commercial for a new migraine medicine called Treximet. It is apparently the hottest new thing for bad headaches. The first side effect mentioned by the voice-over sounds just a little bit extreme, though. “Side effects may include sudden fatal heart attack …” Call me crazy, but I can’t imagine getting headaches […]

An excellent tutorial from G: AdSense Optimization Demo
Section Targeting February 25th, 2006 @ 1:54 am PST
Whoa. I don’t know how I haven’t seen this yet. Google lets you target specific sections of your page as more or less relevant to AdSense. This should be required reading for all bloggers and — hell — should be part of the default WP install … What is section targeting and how do I […]
Adcult USA — James Twitchell March 30th, 2004 @ 3:48 pm PST
I just gave away my last copy of Adcult USA, so I zipped over to Amazon™ to buy two more. I’ve bought eight — eight! — copies of this thing since I first read it.
HTTPADS December 20th, 2001 @ 1:18 am PST
HTTP Ads just launched. I’m very impressed with the interface and site design. I’ve been reading about its development for some time and was excited to read that the service is now available. I’m going to do some more research, but it looks like it could be the next “killer app” for bloggers. Very interesting.
