Winner-Winner, Chicken Dinner!

white kicksAs I tend to do, I’ve fallen a bit behind on my blogging. But, as promised, here is the winner of my highly prestigious and lucrative design contest: Gaius Benbow, who incidentally is the recent fiance of my good friend and Little Me, Big You blogger, Nadia Payan. Conflict of interest you say!? Not if he was the ONLY one to submit a legitimate entry. Thanks a lot internets.

Frenzied Waters jar contents

Over the past few days, some popular movie bloggers like Victor Holtreman fromScreenRant (image cred) and Johnny Wright from YesButNoButYes received mysterious packages in the mail. The packages contained an old rusty mason jar with a bunch of objects inside like a shark tooth, a shredded bathing suit and closed beach sign. The most unsettling object however, was an obituary describing how the recipient died because of a shark attack.

Part of the campaign for the much anticipated Ford Fiesta is the Fiesta Movement, which involves 100 “agents” performing special missions and then posting content about them online.

Yes, I will be in the water with them. And yes, the water may become slightly warmer when I lay eyes on my first shark.

Laura Martinez from Mi Blog es Tu Blog never disappoints in posting the most ridiculous Hispanic news from the furthest corners of the interwebs. Today she posted a video from the cutting edge journalists at NBC’s Today show about the “emerging” Hispanic market. I laughed, I cried, I shook my head in disbelief. See the video below.

Local Girl Makes Good

I was browsing through the New Times’ Best of Miami 2009 issue, when I came across an interesting category: Best Local Girl Makes Good.  The award went to a Debbie Attias, a former rapper who is now biking across the country to raise money for the World Wildlife Fund. A worthy feat no doubt, but I recently learned of a Miami girl who’s ‘made good’ on a much larger stage.  Dr. Mireya Mayor is an anthropologist and one of the star explorers in the History Channel’s new series Expedition Africa.
