AuthorUmm, I mean renting a house isn’t fun. Renting an exhibit is an entirely different situation and can really be the way to go these days…

But you must wonder, what put me on this tangent?
Just reflecting on when our refrigerator died last fall and our landlord Steve did not fix the problem immediately.

My boyfriend Neil and I have been excellent tenants who’ve taken great care of the property and paid rent on time every month for 4 years, yet Steve said it would take a whole week to get the new fridge in – WHAT?!?!?!

AuthorWith EXHIBITORLIVE a week plus in the rear view mirror, it is tempting to recap the buzz of the show floor and all the groovy emotional points of the show, but I am going to skip that as it has been done and I am going to focus on a very serious matter.

AuthorWhile I cannot speak for everyone that happened upon the giant bubble gum machine in the sky that stuck out like a… well like a… well like a giant bubble gum machine in the sky, I can speak for the attendees that I did get the chance to talk to.

To summarize, let’s just say that if they did not believe the pre-show marketing blasts, or were on the “bubble” as to the validity of those announcements, they partook in the Kool-Aid, so to speak, saw the light and truly left as believers in what 4K Print Technology could achieve.

AuthorSitting at gate A10 this morning in STL, I was watching the world and interesting people walk by and started thinking about the Dollar Shave Club Guy and when TWA ruled the St. Louis airport and airspace.

See, the DSCG came out of a marketing and ad agency background and from what I understand, had an ah-ha moment a few years back about getting shaving tools and advice and realized that 4 out of 5 dentists agree that most men have no clue as to what they are buying and why. Read more…
