Podcast Review: <i>Doug Loves Movies</i>
Huffington Post - about 2 years
I'm kicking off the year reviewing one of the staples of podcasting, Doug Loves Movies, as a reminder that the adage "out with the old, in with the new" doesn't necessarily always apply. This year mark's DLM's 10th anniversary, making it one of the longest running regular shows out there in Podcastland. With this installment it's clear that the formula that host Doug Benson cooked up back in 2006 still makes for fresh laughs. The usual lineup is tweaked just a bit this show, with four guests instead of three -- Andree Vermuelen, Patton Oswalt, Bert Kreischer and Geoff Tate. Three of them are veterans of the show, while Vermuelen is making her debut. But make no mistake, she's no shrinking violet -- when the comic zingers start...zinging, she's right there in the thick of it. Most of the zingers seem to aimed Kreischer's way, starting with his outfit and harping on many of his answers to host Benson's opening questions to the guests. Maybe it's out of the desire to see how many...

Book excerpt: In defence of CEOs
Financial Post - about 5 years
Ray Fisman is Lambert Family professor of social enterprise and co-director of the Social Enterprise Program at Columbia Business School. Tim Sullivan is editorial director of Harvard Business Review Press. They are the authors of The Org: The Underlying Logic of the Office, published this month by Twelve. An excerpt: A $90,000 area rug, a pair of guest chairs that cost almost as much, a $35,000 commode and a $1,400 trash can — these are just a few of the expenses from a remodelling of John Thain’s office when he took over as Merrill Lynch’s chief executive in December 2007. The total bill came to an astonishing $1.2-million — about the price of five average single-family homes. Those same remodeling expenses contributed to Mr. Thain’s resignation just over a year later, after Bank of America bought Merrill, and helped to define the popular image of the CEO as someone who lives a life of extreme privilege: gold-plated faucets, country-club memberships and chauffeur-driven lim...

Overtones: Blackjack bringing back rock music
Blue Ridge Now - almost 6 years
‘Rock's kind of going downhill," says Blackjack bassist/guitarist Cole Laughter. "It's time to bring it back." That may seem like a lot of weight on the shoulders of a 16-year-old, but to Laughter and lead singer Johnny Blackwell, juniors at West Henderson High School, rock is a serious passion and should be done right or not at all. Laughter and Blackwell have a regular gig the first Friday of each month at South Rock Bar &amp; Grill. Sometimes they play it with the whole Blackjack band; other times they go unplugged as a duo. "Johnny and I met in the first grade, and we started making music in the fourth grade at a talent show. We've been going ever since then," Laughter says. "We're like brothers." Blackwell, 17, has been singing ever since he can remember. "Pretty much all of my family are musicians, so I kind of fell into that by osmosis," he surmises. Blackwell recalls going to a Tom Petty concert at age 4. He and Laughter are both big Kiss fans. "When we first start...
