    We used to have a love/hate relationship with McDonald’s. Now, it’s just hate.

    The Starz Film Festival has come and gone this year, but the good news is that we had a chance to attend the closing night movie. See what we thought of Last Chance Harvey here.

  • "Hey Man, What'd You Do For Lunch?"

    / Comments (0)

    “Oh, you know. Ran a couple of errands. Grabbed a sandwich. Read the paper. Oh and I strapped on a freaking jet pack and launched myself 1,500 feet over the Royal Gorge. You?”

    Here’s video of Eric Scott, the Go Fast! Rocket Man, successfully flying over the Royal Gorge in Canon City, Colorado. The stunt took place at noon today. What this video fails to show is the 1,100 foot deep chasm that opens to the Arkansas River below.

    Funny, whenever we drink Go Fast! we usually just get real chatty and end up at some half-sketchy house party in the wee hours. We’ll try this rocket thing next time.

  • Spy On Section 45

    Local ad shop, Section 45, has set up a webcam broadcasting – you guessed it – their local ad shop. If you’re feeling a bit lonely working out of grandma’s knick knack-invested basement today, stop on in for a virtual look and chat.

    As a pre-warning to all employees, watch out where that thing’s pointing. Wouldn’t want the world to see what really goes on in ad offices, now would you?

  • Might Be Time To Take His Name Off The Door

    According to AdWeek, the $1.5 million Exclusive Resorts account went out-of-town for their new campaign, bringing their work to Leo Burnett, Chicago.

    That’s right, Leo Burnett reached into Denver and picked up a $1.5 million account. This move shows little to no regard for the best way to spend a small marketing budget. Just a meeting at Burnett has got to ring the cash register at more than the majority of a campaign here in Denver.

    But at least the executives at Exclusive get to say they are working with Leo Burnett at their cocktail parties.

    The people we’ve got to question here are the leadership at what was once the pride of the midwest, Burnett. With their big building on the river, they were once the shining light of sensible, benefit-driven advertising doing memorable campaigns for McDonald’s, United and Altoids.

    Now they find themselves creating propaganda for the US Army and pitching $1.5 million dollar accounts.

    That’s not really reaching for the stars, now is it?

  • JCVD Trailer: Van Damme Is Back!

    / Comments (1)

    When the life of Jean-Claude Van Damme collides with the reality of a hold-up in Brussels, Belgium, suddenly the huge movie star turns into an ordinary guy, filled with fears, contradictions and hopes. How can he be up to the legend he has built? What can a film hero do when the gun pointed to his temple isn’t charged with blanks? JCVD finds himself at the turning point of his “hero” life. Check out the trailer.

    Looks so damn good. Best line by far: “They took someone else. Steven Segal. He promised to cut off his pony tail.”
