Long Live the Website: The Essential Source of Vital Information
Huffington Post - 5 months
Far from being an artifact of the early years of the Internet, and despite several claims to the contrary, a website is still a necessity for a variety of organizations, from start-ups to health care companies to government agencies. And yet, based on this report from a business-to-business research firm, 46% of small businesses do not have a website for their respective brands. Notwithstanding this rather negative piece from Forbes, the corporate website—indeed, the vast majority of websites—should not die; because any such site contains vital information that is too expansive for Twitter, too separate for Facebook, and too different for Instagram. One need only read this post entitled "Why Every Small Business Should Have A Website," to understand the power of a website to make an impression—and attract impressions, too—while articulating a message that captures the essence of this or that company. Consider, too, this column from a fellow contributor to The Huffin ...

Margo Martindale Knows Her Way Around Southern Stereotypes, But Here's Where She Draws The Line
Huffington Post - 10 months
Character Actress Margo Martindale will play a bank-robbing animated version of herself, she'll look Meryl Streep in the eyes and reveal she slept with her husband, and she'll seek revenge by serving a dude poisonous moonshine. So where does Character Actress Margo Martindale draw the line when choosing roles? Recently, it was with a particular slur.  In "Mother's Day," Martindale plays a racist, homophobic, redneck grandmother named Flo. The movie, which opens Friday, marks the third holiday-centered omnibus in which "Pretty Woman" and "Princess Diaries" director Garry Marshall gives us the chance to gaze at A-listers who only had to work for a few days because these ensembles are so massive. (Marshall's first two holiday confections were 2010's "Valentine's Day" and 2011's "New Year's Eve.")  Sporting patriotic T-shirts and a bucket of fried chicken, Flo and her husband (Robert Pine) load up their RV and travel from Texas to Atlanta to visit their two children (Kate Hudson an ...

Online Dating is Dead. Long Live Online Dating
Huffington Post - about 1 year
Last summer, a number of people forwarded me the Vanity Fair article about Tinder and the "Dating Apocalypse," a think piece loaded with dire predictions for the future of online dating culture. Then came stories about the Ashley Madison hacking debacle. Pearls were clutched with a feverish schadenfreude as unfaithful men panicked that their personal information had been leaked on the Internet. (The embarrassment that nearly all of the women on the site were spambots just added insult to injury.) * * * * * On social media, the chorus that meets grim news about online dating is as predictable as it is jaded. "Ugh. Online dating is horrible." And yet...we all do it. Search for dating apps, and you'll find thousands beyond the ones you already know. One app alerts you the moment your Facebook crush breaks up with their current relationship partner. (Yeah...that's not creepy at all.) There is an app that matches you based on your "candy flavors." Another casts you as ...

Spring Studio Is Dead, Long Live Spring Studio
Huffington Post - about 1 year
the entrance to Spring Studio, 64 Spring St. Some years ago, I lived in one of those artsy little towns which freckle the South. There was a main road in this town, and off to one side of it, a fenced-off bare lot. Walking past, one would notice slow changes in the lot: the digging of a foundation, laying in of beams, the start of a building. But only one person was ever there, a sunburned guy in muddy clothes who was always lugging supplies, or operating a heavy machine, or pushing a full wheelbarrow. This went on for a couple years, until one day there appeared, as if from nowhere, a complete, fairly large building, in glass, steel, and brick, adorned with beautiful carved wooden details. On the day it opened, we filed in, gawping at this apparition of a building. Inside were an atrium, and a balcony, and a second floor divided into studios. It turned out it was a new arts center, and that one guy we'd been seeing all that time had built it single-handed. Every day we'd seen h ...

The King Is Dead, Long Live the King
Huffington Post - over 1 year
The late folksinger Phil Ochs, sang these words: There's no place in this world where I'll belong when I'm gone And I won't know the right from the wrong when I'm gone And you won't find me singin' on this song when I'm gone So I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here I attended a funeral this week of a friend. I was not his best friend, his oldest friend, his dearest friend, but I was fortunate to call him a friend. And the family asked me to deliver the Kaddish prayer. And I was honored. But I'm pretty pissed off and it ain't pretty. As Phil Ochs said,"I guess I'll have to do it while I'm here." Life is funny..and cruel. We give in our lifetime because that's who we are. But what we often give, is seen as a stepping stone to some, where they want to be. Don't get me wrong: Ambition with soul and purpose is good. Ambition for the sake of ambition is ugly. And funerals can be ugly. The friends and lovers of the person who passed are pure. This person has left ...
