Pardon the redirection

March 3, 2010

It’s an I. T. world we’re living in. Face it, I. T. people control how we communicate, shop, be entertained, learn. So do what your I.T. person tells you to do. Don’t try to understand it. Just do it. My I.T. Guru tells me to move this blog to a new place. I’m doing it. He’s a helluva lot smarter than me.

So now, if you will, please click HERE. And Voila. You will be whisked to www.someadchick.com

Bookmark The Chick. Please visit regularly and comment often. I need contact with the outside advertising world.

It can get lonely here in Hooterville.

How to meet men…uh-huh

March 2, 2010

Adchick is moving to a new site soon, so in the meantime, take good notes on The Art of Meeting Men. Yes, a good conversation starter might indeed be a “small stuffed animal”. “Oh, pardon me, but I couldn’t help noticing…Is that a  Tickle Me Elmo you have there?” Also, I love the set. It’s so…eighties.  Hilarious.

As Seen on TV…HAT?

Yes, it comes in camo….for all the Hootervillians.

The Bud Parody

I sense a theme coming in this blog. Parodies…hmmm. Yes, let’s continue. Thanks to Designer Extraordinaire, Tim, for the find.

95 Years of Cool

February 22, 2010

In 1915, my Grandmother Nellie Lee was born. This past weekend we celebrated her 95th birthday with a little shopping and too much to eat. Many say it’s amazing how, “at her age”, she is so sharp. And it’s true. She met my Grandfather, Paul, when she went to work for his parents at their farm. She was only 16 years old. They fell in love. Nellie Lee had twin daughters (born on the farm in the house where they lived their entire lives) when  she was 20 and she and Paul were married over 50 years. She’s always been a farmers wife. She knows how to get fifty cents out of a quarter.

A life long Democrat, she’s quite sure that Obama could get things done if he didn’t have to deal with all those “other” people. When she found out her daughter was a Republican, she said, “Well, she wasn’t raised to be that way.” (Doncha love that?) Nellie Lee is witty, honest and observant and will strike up a conversation with any one at any time, putting everyone instantly at ease. Doing the right thing is what she’s all about. We could all take a lesson.

Happy Birthday, Nellie Lee!

All Things Avatar

February 20, 2010

Avatar. I haven’t seen it yet, but is it good enough to warrant this? And does Will Smith know he’s blue now?

Then there are these people, who truly do need to get a life. In Hooterville, you’ll see more camo than blue.

The Google Parody

February 18, 2010

My cynical spot was more than satisfied with this parody on Googles Superbowl commercial. Sarah’s quest for fame and riches continues to inspire! Thanks to Prostituted Thoughts for this little gem. I loved it.

The Voice of Flatulance

February 18, 2010

I do a bit of voice work via an on-line talent web site.  They send an invitation to audition to hundreds of us who “fit” the profile.  But exactly how do I fit this job description?

The Flatulence Awareness Respect and Trust Society.

One of the copy lines was: Fourteen farts a day keeps the gastroenterologist away!

Yes, it was for a humorous project, but it’s not going on my demo reel.

The Client/Vendor Relationship

February 16, 2010

Chances are very good you have this relationship with at least some of your clients. And if you do, send them to your competition.

Thank you Kathie, the best female announcer ever, for the find.
