Why I Should Be a New/Social Media Product Marketing Director

This awesome job opportunity just came right in front of my eyes! It's with this really cool company named Ringleader Digital- they made the first RLD server (Spark Leader) back in 2007. It's a 3rd party mobile ad server that tons of companies are using!

Why am I telling you this? Because to be the New/Social Media Product Marketing Director would fit the bill SO well! The person needs to be pretty computer savvy (like me) and be on the bandwagon for facebook (Bryan Campione), twitter (bcampione), youtube (bryancampione) and blogs (Camp Campi), etc.

The person also must be able to identify trends in media outlets (people, look at places like digg, hulu and stumbleupon. they've been around for awhile, I've been using them, and now they're getting huge!).

They need to be savvy with events and promotions like I had been doing with Cisco Systems, very sociable and outgoing (that's a no brainer here!), but most importantly, be business and marketing savvy. I'm using the word savvy a lot only because that's what I am. I'm savvy when it comes to all this stuff. It's always a blast playing on social and social media networks seeing the trends in progress and how to jump on a new one before it's even popular. I love it!

So, if anybody from Ringleader is reading this, get in contact with me. Let's set up a meeting, or go out for coffee, or have a Skype video chat. I'm all for applying to be your new director, and would really love the chance to show you why I'm the right guy for the job!

Go "Frick" Yourself

Picture from

What a week this has been so far! Mom, Dad and Scott came into town for a fun weekend on Friday! After a day or walking around, Saturday we went with some relatives to Billy Elliot - loved it just as much again! Sunday we had a family party and Dad and Scott left Monday after some plane delays at JFK (go figure).

Monday Mom, Soo and I rocked out shopping at Columbus Circle and Whole Foods - I'm stocked for a week or two - yay!

Today, we went not only shopping in Soho before Mom left for home, but also to the Frick Collection- a museum on the Upper East Side. It is a WONDERFUL place to go check out some cool art pieces. It was owned by Henry Clay Frick - a man known for working with the coke and steel business in the early 1900's. His residence, now this museum, is unbelievable - indoor and outdoor gardens and fountains, and extraordinary rooms filled with really cool paintings, sculptures and whatnot. A definite highlight is going into the library and seeing the collection of leather bound books he owned - I'm not an art or history nerd, and it was still awe-inspiring. Another cool note is that it is right on Central Park- so cool views of the trees, park and vegetation are there too.

Definitely go when it is warm outside. There are tons of flowering trees and plants that will look even better as spring comes nearer. Also, listen to the free audio guide - it tells neat facts about the collection and the mansion itself. Don't watch the movie- it's a snoozer and worse than the film reels we used to watch in elementary school.

Last note- BURGERS at SOHO PARK!!! Eat there, drink there, love it there - nothing is better than awesome food in a really cool part of town!

From the Slums to the Oscars to Phenomenon

When I saw this movie the first time, I was speechless. So moving. The story was written fantastically. The actors, cinematography, soundtrack, etc. were also phenomenal. It is a movie that relishes on the search for hope, love and optimism is a world of volatile uncertainty. It is the new fairytale.

Congratulations on it winning SEVEN Oscars tonite! All the winners were well deserved, and the show, I thought, for the most part, was quite good and not stale as in other years. But, it was truly a Slumdog evening.

Choo Choo, Next Stop My Thighs...

If you have not seen this website, CHECK IT OUT. While the food looks gross, it also, for some reason has a percentage of "appetizing-ness."

Why do I write about it in this blog? it reminds me of several things. Yes, America is fat. Yes America has problems with weight control and consumption. No, I do not think it will end soon, especially with a recession and Mc Donald's being a cheaper alternative to dining.
My friend Josh just got back from Europe and we were talking about the fact that you go there, eat a meal, and you are "pleasantly full" but not overstuffed as in an American meal. Why is it we eat 1 pound hamburgers when we are supposed to have 4-6 oz of meat per meal or day? Why the extra-large french fries when they are nothing but starch, fat and salt? Do we need the 4th-scoop and a 3rd-topping mega sundaes from Ben an Jerry's? NO.

Portion control and consumption are becoming ever-alarming in today's society; more so than in the past. We are seeing more and more younger children struggling with problems seen in the past with adults (high bp, obesity, diabetes setoff from dietary consumption, etc.). The question arises what to do?

I am no genius; I think hard and truly express whatever it is that I say. When it comes to this type of question, I will make people mad with my answer, but I am all for a healthier America, and a satisfied world. I think that:

1. All schools should promote ONLY healthy eating. No burgers, unless wheat buns or veggie/turkey ( baked), frozen yogurt instead of ice cream, etc. Though it may cost the schools a bit more, it is preserving the future of these children brought into a world of grease and health issues.

2. All foods not recommended in the pyramid or by nutritionists should have a higher taxation, while somehow (dunno how, but feel this way) decreasing the value of fresh produce, meats and grains.

3. Mandatory breaks in jobs for walking/excercising/even napping (for mental health). It hurts the percentage of actual hours worked minimally. Most people slack off for a certain amount of hours/day, and if they had the option of walking, etc. I bet they would take it.

I have a lot of other ideas, and forgive me if I am rambling (it's 5am and I'm having trouble sleeping), but I feel these are good ventures for not only America (mainly), but for first and secondary countries to try and implement for a healthier population.

So eat the meatloaf with mac n cheese in the middle, or the cheeseburger in a doughnut. Just remember that it shouldn't be a thing of normalcy in the diet. And if you do eat one of the things on the list, at least walk so the food coma isn't like Glenn Quagmire giving you a "ruffied-colada"......
