It’s not recommended and a bit anti-social, but if you do then don’t be stupid enough to Tweet about it!
This guy has now deleted his Tweet but remember your Tweets live on in Twitter Search!
I’d heard about this over the weekend via Twitter while I was in the US.
Only got around to watching it at 4.30 this morning through a jet-lagged haze!
Has to be one of the most amazing performances ever on one of these “talent” shows.
I must have heard that song sung a 1000 times while at auditions in my acting days.
None of them came anywhere near to topping that!
I’m betting she’ll be Number 1 this Christmas!
If there’s one thing that’s going to make my blood boil on a Wednesday morning, on the train, when I’ve had 3 hours sleep thanks to jet lag, it’s some berk texting away on a mobile phone that is making a high pitched beeping sound with every key stroke!
Why do phone beep like that and why is it the default setting? Is it a usability thing or is it a disabled access requirement?
Anyone in the mobile industry know?
It does raise the question of self-awareness though. How people think that beeping away like that on a train journey with hundreds of fellow passengers within earshot is ok.
It’s like the guy who gets on my train at Mortlake with – I KID YOU NOT – a ceramic bowl of cereal and a flask of milk and eats it while reading is emails!!
And then there are those thoughtless bar stewards who don’t move down the train/tube carriage because they’re newspaper reading might be impeded or they’re too feeble to use their natural sense of balance to stop them falling over and have to hold on to something!!
I know I’m a bit tired and crabby, but what is wrong with people?
Right – I’m off to Boots for some Pro Plus!
While I’m gone, let me know what gets your goat about your fellow human beings!!!
5 flights, 4 countries, 3 hotels, 2 hangovers and only 1 life!
The last couple of weeks have been madder than Mad Jack McMad!
After a pit stop in Boston to visit my mate Dom Doyle who teaches Theology at Harvard, it was onto Toronto where I spent time with the Canada team and participated in a round table with some of Canada’s finest press folk and managed an amusing dinner out with Vanessa, Danny and Andrew & Mona from www.PageZero.com
Now I’m in Seattle meeting with my team, planning the next year’s worth of excitement and doing lots of work during downtime on the wedding!
After two weeks it’s a bit odd being away from Englandshire, but travelling sure makes sure you’re busy.
It amuses me how some people seem to think it’s all glitz and glam, but believe me you yearn for your own bed and a daily dose of Radio 5 Live!
The key is to make long trips comfortable and I have some tips on how to get the most from your mileage…….but I’ll save them for another day!
BTW – If anyone can name the BBC comedy and character who says the words in the title of this post, I’ll send them a surprise!
This week is going to be awesome for all of us!
Awesome for me because on Thursday I fly with Ashley and some of the finest minds in online marketing to Reykjavik in Iceland for the Reykjavik Internet Marketing Conference.
Awesome for you, because you’re going to have the laugh of your life on Friday 20th at 5.15pm if you watch BBC 2 and catch us touring the wilds of East Sussex looking for a house to escape to with Alastair Appleton of “Cash in the Attic” fame!
You can see some of the photos of the four day shoot here and the funny thing is, because we’re at the conference, folks over here in the UK will be the first to see the show so please let us know what you think/laughed at.
To be honest it’s a little nerve-wracking as there was so much footage there could be many angles they could take – I just hope me quoting Tom Hanks in Forrest Gump by accident has made it to the cutting room floor!
As for the conference, well Kristjan Mar Hauksson has done a great job assembling the likes of Rand Fishkin, Shari Thurow, Anne Kennedy, Dixon Jones, Andy Atkins-Kruger and Adam Lasnik to inject some internet marketing know-how into the Icelandic marketing community.
I’ll be speaking on online youth marketing with Sion Portman from Nike which I’m looking forward to enormously!
Have to say, Kristjan continues to be one of the best loved, jolliest and most generous people in the industry.
He’ll be in New York for SES so say hi and buy him a beer or 5!
