timeline & mad men

Ok, so Lionsgate took down Eric Leist's video I posted comparing the selling of the Carousel for slides in the 60's to the new Facebook timeline. Obviously they were not happy he had used a past clip from Mad Men to make the video of Don Drapers timeline. So this video is of the new Timeline that will be rolling out on Facebook profiles soon. You can still see the original Mad Men clip here with Don Draper amazing sales pitch using nostalgia to sell the Carousel. This has got to be one or my favorite clips from all their shows! Eric's comments as to why he compared the carousel episode on Mad Men to the new timeline in Facebook are below.

Who knew that Facebook's newest feature timeline was originally conceived by the Mad Men of the 1960s? In all seriousness, the most compelling elements of Facebook's Timeline are the ones that made Kodak's Carousel popular. Reminiscing is a social activity. It always has been, and now Facebook is bringing that activity online.    Eric Leist

Friday was the first day of Fall. That means I'll be wearing one of my favorite things all the time now.....Cardigan's.

But I think it's very healthy to spend time alone. You need to know how to be alone and not be defined by another person.    Olivia Wilde

danielle's homecoming

I put this on Facebook but wanted it here on my blog too because Facebook scrolls into oblivion and this is too huge to not document! This is a picture of Danielle her first time living away from home after we dropped her off to start college at UC Santa Cruz. Little did I know that she would be living far away from us for 14 YEARS! All the way from Florida to South Africa to Japan to Washington DC. We are super happy because after all these years she will be moving back near us to Santa Barbara. Her boyfriend is starting graduate school at UCSB {the reason for the move, lucky us}. Danielle will be able to keep her same job. A lot of it is travel which she will continue to do and the rest she will telecommute from home. She arrives on Friday night and then the next morning we are heading out to Britt's. I got Matt to break away from his friends and he will be meeting us there too. Danielle has not even seen Emeri yet, so we will be having a ton of fun with everyone back together. I'm sure Noah will be the life of the party though because he is at the funniest stage right now. Just as an example the other day when Britt was in line at Target with him he started talking to the little girl in front of him. After talking for a few minutes he said to her "that is a pretty cute dress you are wearing." He is quite the little smoozer and he just turned 3! So excited, only 2 more days!
