{Rules of PR no. 21} When PR offends PR: Porn, Cocaine & Celebrity

UPDATE February 17, 2010
The new reality show is called SPINdustry (which I find insulting to true PR pros), it’ll be on E! television network and will premiere after the upcoming season finale of Keeping Up With the Kardashians

If all you need is a sex tape filled with some golden showers, a mock radio-drug saddler and a good makeup artist to make yourself famous, proving to the world you are “somebody,” then I guess the Kardashian household is full of “superstars.”

Didn’t you hear? Kimmie wants to produce a reality television show with Command PR about….wait for it….public relations! [Read more…]

Music Monday – But you make me sing like a guitar hummin’

While, you might listen to it and think it’s about some woman of the night, “Cracklin’ Rosie” is actually about a Canadian wine. I’m not a huge fan of 1970s music unless you count ABBA and some random left overs from the 60s, but I do love this song.

Oh, I love my Rosie child —
You got the way to make me happy.
You and me, we go in style …
Cracklin’ Rose, you’re a store bought woman
You make me sing like a guitar hummin’ …

It reminds of the autumn for some reason. This song was Neil Diamond’s first number one hit in the United States in 1970 and it was his breakthrough track into the UK mainstream music market.

Enjoy! 🙂
