Wilder was initially hesitant, but finally accepted the role under one condition:
When I make my first entrance, I’d like to come out of the door carrying a cane and then walk toward the crowd with a limp. After the crowd sees Willy Wonka is a cripple, they all whisper to themselves and then become deathly quiet. As I walk toward them, my cane sinks into one of the cobblestones I’m walking on and stands straight up, by itself… but I keep on walking, until I realize that I no longer have my cane. I start to fall forward, and just before I hit the ground, I do a beautiful forward somersault and bounce back up, to great applause.
When Stuart asked why, Wilder replied, “because from that time on, no one will know if I’m lying or telling the truth.”

Genius.

Been doing a lot of traveling recently and every time I’m reminded that Virgin America is the only way to fly.

I’m kind of obsessed with watches. The time piece, in my opinion, is the only acceptable mens jewelry outside of a wedding ring, and it says a lot about a person. I can tell if someone runs, I can get a hint at someones wealth, I can tell if punctuality is something of importance. Watches tell a story.
I started a tumblr blog called, “A Watch List” where I post interesting images of wrist watches and sometimes add some color to the post with a story about the history of the piece or the person who wears it. Just a fun project, who knows where it’ll go…
Check out the blog & let me know if you have a story to tell about your watch.

Netflix brand loyalty plumets.

This chart represents a 7-week period and 15,000 people. Each respondent is asked two simple questions: Which brands have you heard positive news about recently? Which brands have you heard negative news about recently? As you can see, the day that the new pricing schemes were announced and immediately afterwards were not good for Netflix; it crashed from a consumer perception significantly higher than Redbox and DirecTV, down into the negative numbers, into the lowly depths of Blockbuster.

Really enjoyed the Mets game at Citi Field this week. Mets beat the Cards (hate the Cards) and Jose Reyes, the allstar shortstop was back off of the DL. 

Couldn’t help but to freak out every time I saw an airplane taking off from LGA soar over the ballpark. The scene with the sunset behind it was spectacular and one I won’t forget for a while.

Finally, I went to the game w/ 3 Aussies who were experiencing the MLB for the first time. It reminded me how much I love the game of baseball, how much it hurts that the Padres are sucking d!&k this year, and how awesome America and our sports are.
