Waful Gets Punk’d: Irony Gets the Last Laugh

Waful Gets Punk’d: Irony Gets the Last Laugh

If you follow me on social media you may be aware of my love affair with coffee and bagels. It’s part of my daily ritual and I am often tweeting whilst imbibing said caffeine and starch. For a Jew living in Brooklyn, it’s not such an odd concept.  But finding bagels or quality coffee on the road is not as easy.  In the South for example, they look at you funny if you ask for …

Brainstorming: A look into the Red Rocks promo video

Brainstorming: A look into the Red Rocks promo video

We brainstorm constantly. Day in, day out. Sometimes it takes place in the back of the bus, in the office, at a Cubs game, over email, while running, on the phone or in this case, gchat. Sometimes it takes forever to come up with an idea, sometimes it happens instantly. I thought it would be fun to share the process on this one since we rarely have a complete record from start to finish.  Jefferson …
