Check Out the Tom Petty Movie

I Tivo’d Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers: Runnin’ Down a Dream Thursday, I’m about halfway through it (it’s four hours long). This is without a doubt the best music documentary I’ve ever seen. Imagine Motley Crue Behind the Music without all of the crap about drugs and chicks. This documentary is about guys making good music.

You know they have a lot of good songs, but you don’t realize how many and how great until they are all thrown at you at once. There are a few other singers/bands I’d like to see documented in this format for that same reason–Mellencamp, Springsteen, Fogerty, Prince, Stevie Wonder, U2…

Young MC, Quiet Riot, and Winger almost made the list too.

Ron Paul Gets Cute on Jay Leno

Sorry I’m just getting around to writing about Ron Paul’s appearance on Jay Leno. Just a couple of notes…

Whenever Leno mention Dr. Paul in his monologue, he got great applause. It was pretty apparent that there are quite a few people who actually know who he is now. Also, Dr. Paul got a good reaction from the crowd with most of what he said. It’s a pretty simple message that regular people can really relate to.

Whether you like it or not, there are other intangibles that are equally important in an election. Ron Paul scored big here too, at least in our household. I actually heard the phrase, “he’s sooo cute!”

I doubt anyone is saying that about Hillary Clinton.

Higher Education Marketing

Seth Godin has a great post today about what actually matters (and what doesn’t) when choosing a college.

It’s almost as if every single high school student and her parents insisted on having a $200,000 stereo because it was better than the $1,000 stereo. Sure, it might be a bit better, but is it better enough?

Take the time to read the whole thing.
