Rewind with Julie S.

What time is it? It’s Rewind time, where one of our team recaps his or her favorite news from the week before. Julie S. is our director of client services – she can also program a website, cook a 5 course French-inspired dinner with dessert, get around a foreign country by herself with only a map and her backpack, teach you how to moonwalk (although, you’re on your own when it comes to the “Dougie”) and tell corny jokes. What did the number Zero say to the number Eight? Nice belt.

My hometown favorite NBA Lakers opened this week – and they published a neat infographic to highlight some stats of All-Star Pau Gasol. I hope they continue to show illustrative numbers and figures like this, aside from a static table like the boring times in days of yore. And an actual ballgame WIN or two wouldn’t hurt, either. Let’s go Lakers!

I don’t know why it took so long to reach me, with it having over 3.7 million views already, but I am a fan of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos and thusly a fan of this home-brewed music video. Surprisingly, it’s well produced, the music beat is catchy and the lyrics are in good fun. Why my parents didn’t have me rapping at the tender age of 12, I do not know. I could’ve been famous by now. BTW – Frito–Lay, you need to capitalize on this and use it to your advantage. Flamin’ Hot Cheetos for everyone!

Speaking of everyone – you know, you, me and the 1 billion other people on Facebook – Zuck&Co. has decided to leave us in the dust! That’s right. In. The. Dust. – unless we fork over some dough, of course. Facebook, you’ve failed us. Yea, I said it. And so did Neicole Crepeau in her article. MySpace isn’t looking so bad anymore – glad I still remember my old username and password. Har har.

I still hope to be able to teleport in my lifetime. All you genius scientists need to work on that ASAP. In the meantime, I guess X-Ray vision will do for now. Especially if it can thwart intruders from entering special government buildings. I guess that’ll do.

So much happened last week – Halloween shenanigans, hurricane Sandy’s shenanigans and last-minute-election shenanigans all around! With so many stories to be told, might as well hear the news unscripted, short and sweet and raw from Jan Murphy News. Can you imagine if all prime-time news followed her reporting style? It would be a brilliant feat and would give the 11pm news hour a run for its money.
