Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of the easy wind and downy flake.
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
It’s been a fun week for football fans with all the hoopla and excitement. Here are the posts from 1X57 in build-up to the big game:
The internet era
“Things have changed” – in the internet era of the Super Bowl – “It used to be about a one time hit for 30 seconds or 60 seconds in the middle of the show. And increasingly we’re trying to create a sort of two-week buzz.”
Super Bowl commercials for women
How many commercials are directed at women?
Here’s one – David Beckham 360 underwear shot
Art of the Super Bowl
It is the 46th Super Bowl and every year an artist was commissioned to create the cover for the game-day program. Here they all are – The art of the Super Bowl program cover
“For the first time ever watch the Super Bowl live online.”
Finally, the top 5 pre-game commercials:
- Ferris Bueller re-enacted by Matthew Broderick
- Chevy Sonic on a bungee chord
- Dogs bark in chorus for Star Wars, The Imperial March theme
- The dog is funnier than the Darth Vader kid
- Jerry Seinfeld really needs a car
Listen to the original, The Imperial March
Watch this super-powerful explosion-scented commercial, but only if you like having your mind blown into 1,000 smaller, better minds.
bubba-bup — bup bup — buh — power!
I must say that I am impressed with Google’s marketing efforts lately. The commercial about Search Your World/Walking on the Internet was impressive and now the Muppets!
For more on their complete campaign, including retired basketball stars:
Google accelerated advertising for its social network by showcasing Jim Henson’s The Muppets in a new commercial about the Google Plus Hangouts feature.
The Muppets performed an impromptu band session as they rocked out to a cover of ”Under Pressure” by Queen and David Bowie through a Google Plus Hangout.
Google recently released a trio of new television commercials that promote its social network by featuring Hangouts with the Muppets, NBA announcers, Steve Kerr, Spero Dedes, Bill Walton, Kenny Smith, and Jon Barry. This is not the first time Google collaborated with the The Muppets to advertise one of its products. There was another Muppets Hangout Nov. 7, and the search engine giant celebrated the 75th birthday of Muppet creator Jim Henson by forming an interactive Muppets’ logo for Google.
