Art(work) Is So UnpredictableMarcia MDoxie-Cornucopia

Mon, 25 Jul 2011 16:27:15 +0000

Was it the fact that I’d been seriously neglecting my art development (sounds so corporate, eh?), or was it stupidity? Maybe it was both. I started with the greatest of intentions. I’d spend ten minutes working on this one project before moving on to the dozen other, hot projects that needed my attention. Six hours […]

Making Sense of Wine…or NotMarcia MWhite Wine in Glass

Wed, 29 Jun 2011 04:05:34 +0000

It’s been awhile since my last blog post due to the workload of posts I’ve been writing for other sites and my own newsletter (which isn’t yet linked into the blog). But the post below is also cross-post at Women for WineSense. I just thought for those not reading about wine, this would make a […]

The Creativity Factor, Part 2Marcia M

Fri, 29 Apr 2011 18:54:00 +0000

Have you ever wondered how many tries some caveman made before he got the wheel right? Did he (or she) need to invent fire first in order to make the wheel? Or did a stone wheel in motion provide enough friction to create fire? I guess I should leave that one alone. The chicken or […]

The Creativity Factor, Part 1Marcia MCreativity is Boundless by Pixelnase

Wed, 06 Apr 2011 23:49:50 +0000

“I’m not creative.” I hate to hear that. Everyone is creative. Usually folks who say that claim they aren’t artistically bent or have no musicality, can’t dance, can’t paint or draw, etc. That is such a small frame of reference! Creativity is a state of mind. Thinking of a new way to solve a puzzle […]

What Exactly is an Ad?Marcia MThe Witches by GoyaThe Colussus by GoyaHell by H. Bosch

Mon, 21 Mar 2011 18:04:52 +0000

I don’t know about anyone else, but the last week or so has felt very unsettling, very strange. I’m sure it’s related to the disaster in Japan. It is so overwhelming, tragic and sad. I just can’t seem to  digest what seems to be incomprehensible cruelty upon the lovely people of this island nation. (And […]

Should Wine Have Three “S’s” or Three “G’s”?Marcia M

Mon, 07 Mar 2011 06:30:48 +0000

Just when I thought it wasn’t possible to have another wine commercial released so soon, Moët & Chandon introduce their latest campaign, starring Scarlett Johansson as their new celebrity ambassador. The video below isn’t so much a traditional, storytelling TV commercial as it is a compilation of their photoshoot and planned print ad campaign. Moët […]

Old Spice Meets Old VinesMarcia M

It’s rare to stumble upon fun and clever commercials. It’s even rare to see one for the wine industry. Since this one is both, I thought I’d share. I originally found this on Dr. Vino’s site, but for our purposes I’ve provided the link to the commercial on You Tube: It is a wonderful parody […]

Tue, 01 Mar 2011 20:53:16 +0000

It wouldn’t be the Olympics without some controversy. “What Olympics are you talking about?” you might say because there’s nothin’ goin’ on now! 2012. London. Summer Games. Amazingly enough when various national teams have threatened to boycott the games in the past (the usual stirring of the pot for sports controversy in these international games) […]

Commercials: Monday’s Quarterbacking the SuperBowl AdsMarcia MSuperBowl Logo

Mon, 07 Feb 2011 20:22:33 +0000

The game may be over, but the points are still being scored on the SuperBowl’s famous TV ads. As always there were thrills (VW’s Passat: Young Vader) to head scratchers (Mini: Cram It in the Boot). The SuperBowl is, well, the super bowl for commercials, too. This is the one time of year advertisers pull […]

Ah, the beauty of social media and instant everything! Just as soon as I get an e-newsletter off the launch pad and into inboxes (soon hopefully once the server’s back online) on this very topic (but not this specific commercial), I see yet another fabulous commercial from folks at Volkswagen (via my stepbrother’s Facebook post). Check out […]
