NBA Fans to Decide Dunk Contest via Twitter in Most Connected All-Star Weekend Yet

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012





Tweets, applications and position updates will be a part of the normal barrage of dunks, three-pointers and no-search passes far more than at any time this weekend at the NBA’s annual All-Star celebration.

For the very first time, fans will be the sole dunk contest judges by way of Twitter, SMS and web site-based mostly voting. The league is also partnering with the social app Shaker to produce a one particular-quit discussion board for fans to interact, chat and watch distinctive content.

Updates to the NBA’s GameTime cell app carry new channels for followers to stream the ninety-in addition hours of video material the league has prepared for the weekend — ranging from on-court highlights to off-court entertaining in Orlando.

League executives say this 12 months’s will effortlessly be the most digitally and socially linked All-Star perform to date.

“All-Star Weekend has genuinely grow to be a celebration of basketball, attracting a international viewers and bringing collectively the greatest gamers from close to the league,” Melissa Rosenthal Brenner, the NBA’s vice president of marketing and advertising, told Mashable. “Given the worldwide nature of social press, it’s the best time to ramp up our efforts in the social room.”

The NBA has prolonged been at the forefront of embracing social media among professional sports activities leagues. Several of its players had been early adopters of Twitter, in distinct. Right now the NBA statements more than 240 million supporters of the league, its teams and gamers across Twitter, Facebook, and Chinese social networks. But the NBA’s social generate fits into a larger method, also.

“We are committed to offering wonderful content to our enthusiasts 24/seven. Much more and much more we’re making use of social media as the lens for that, so to communicate,” Rosenthal Brenner explained.

The tweak to the Sprite Slam Dunk event, an enduring fan favorite, is the most significant change in store this calendar year. Followers will be ready to vote by tweeting the hashtag #SpriteSlam alongside with a letter corresponding to their preferred dunker, as properly as through text message and the NBA.com web site. 1 contestant, Paul George of the Indiana Pacers, even invited fans to submit dunk ideas to him via Twitter.

The league is also brining back again its popular All-Star Pulse characteristic, which tracks trending matters on Facebook and Twitter through the saturday and sunday. And a similar, but new, social initiative this year is the Social Spotlight, which will showcase leading tweets, photographs and videos from enthusiasts on NBA.com. The spotlight is part of an additional energy to “really visualize” the NBA’s social offerings this calendar year, stated Christina Miller, who manages the league’s electronic efforts.

But the online video possibilities through the Game Time cellular app and a host of exclusive published content material on NBA.com demonstrate a electronic engagement emphasis beyond just social media.

For a league keen on new technologies, the slew of digital offerings is what Rosenthal Brenner stated will make this yr’s “the most significant All-Star Saturday and sunday still — at the very least until eventually next calendar year.”

Do you feel the NBA is carrying out a much better work than other professional sports activities leagues of leveraging social and digital technology? Let us know in the responses.

Monday, February 13th, 2012



fashion week, behind the scenes at christian siriano,

A cloud of hair spray engulfs Louise Maselis as she research her reflection in the mirror backstage at Chelsea art gallery EyeBeam Atelier, minutes ahead of the Christian Siriano runway display.

This is Maselis’ 1st New York Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, and she’s reveling in the excitement and the quick-pace naturel of it all.

At Siriano’s demonstrate, Maselis advised us about her preferred component of the previous “Venture Runway” winner’s selection.

“The entire issue, it is incredible and so interesting,” Maselis stated. “I enjoy the inspiration. I adore the makeup. It truly is based mostly close to vampires and bats. It’s very rock-chic. I love it.”

The darkish lips and pale faces served the versions embody the vampire-appear. And the garments they wore on the runway had wings, so that they really did resemble bats.

The hour prior to the runway present commences, each design is surrounded by at the very least a few makeup or hair artists who best her runway search. There is a rapid stroll by means of, so the models get a really feel for the runway. Christian Siriano even gave the group a demonstration of the ideal runway switch.

Maselis wore a daring black sparkly piece for the duration of rehearsal. Right here she strikes a pose for us.





Yet another design gets her hair accomplished. Most of the ladies had prolonged hair in the demonstrate.





We’re speaking genuinely long.

The Cut

NFL Wildcard Weekend Sonnet Picks

Monday, January 9th, 2012

Saturday, January 7

At Houston -3 Cincinnati 38.5

The Texans have finally won the South
Mostly because Peyton Manning is out.
And their quarterback is now injured, too.
Leaving their offense completely askew.
Receiver Andre Johnson is healthy.
Running back Arian Foster’s stealthy.
But who will be their starting quarterback?
Rookie T. J. Yates will lead the attack.
The Bengals turn to a rookie as well
And Andy Dalton has been pretty swell.
Rookie A.J. Green is a Pro Bowler
But the Bengals play kind of bi-polar.
They tend to be their own worst enemy
And three points just isn’t enough for me.
PICK: TEXANS, THE UNDER

At New Orleans -10.5 Detroit 59

The Lions are back in the playoff rounds
And optimism in Detroit abounds.
But the Saints team is totally complete
Their offense will be very tough to beat.
And their defense is underrated
They get penetration unabated.
The Lions do well coming from behind
And the score may be ugly at halftime.
But redemption from Ndamukong Suh
May leave Drew Brees feeling terribly blue.
The Superdome is a tough place to play
The Lions must keep Jimmy Graham at bay.
Throw early and often to Megatron
And maybe it will be them who march on.
PICK: LIONS, THE OVER

Sunday, January 8

At NY Giants -3 Atlanta 47.5

Who can say which Giants team will show up?
Was their late-season swoon a small hiccup?
Their defensive line is quite impressive.
Jason Pierre-Paul is so aggressive!
Also Justin Tuck is healthy for once!
But Antrel Rolle is such a giant ponce!
Their secondary is intensely weak.
They rank 29th when teams do pass deep.
And but for one bad play in overtime
The Falcons might have had a first-round bye.
Matt Ryan and his strong passing assault
Might be fit to expose the G-Men’s faults.
The wind may howl at Met Life Stadium
Can Manning get Cruz to tango for him?
PICK: FALCONS, THE UNDER

Pittsburgh -8.5 At Denver 33.5

The story of the year has been Tebow.
He has been the savior of the Broncos.
They will only go as far as he goes,
Depending on him for more miracles.
But the Steelers are battle-tested,
and their injured players should be rested.
They are without Rashard Mendenhall,
Will they be able to run the football?
Roethlisberger is an elusive guy.
In the pocket he is profoundly spry.
There’s almost zero chance he’ll take a sack
And he can always bring the Steelers back.
The Steel Curtain D is great but old.
Will they want to chase Tebow in the cold?
PICK: BRONCOS, THE UNDER

Haiku Picks went 126-127-7 in the regular season.

The Awl

Stage Dive: The Weekend Off Broadway Review

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

It’s finally cold outside, the big holiday openings are behind us, and the time has come to hunker down in theater’s root cellar, where weird, dark, delicious things are growing. The midwinter experimental festivals are cranking up: Under the Radar (headquartered at the Public) and COIL (from P.S. 122). But beyond the precincts of festival programming, other small, worthy shows are stirring: One in particular, Samuel and Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War — imported to the subterranean New Ohio Theatre from the Brick in Williamsburg — is a masterful lo-fi goof on sci-fi doom, slyly combining postapocalyptic cold-war kitsch and cracker-barrel nostalgia with a beautiful, bleak, bare-bones love story.

More on it in a bit. First, let’s talk Goodbar, the staged concept album that’s kicking off the Under the Radar Festival. Concocted by the playful glam-punk outfit Bambï (umlaut noted!) and the conspicuously un-umlauted theater troupe Waterwell (Tom Ridgely and Bengal Tiger Tony nominee Arian Moayed), this video-assisted, costume-bedecked concert musical is freely adapted from Judith Rossner’s sexual-revolution docu-horror novel Looking for Mr. Goodbar, itself based on the real-life tabloid-perfect murder of a beloved young female schoolteacher with a risky double life in the rough-and-tumble seventies singles scene. (The infamous 1977 film version starring Diane Keaton and Richard Gere makes no appearance, nor does its disco-infected soundtrack.)

“Theresa,” our lost and lovelorn heroine, is played by Bambï front woman Hanna Cheek: She wears bruises on her upper arms like stripes of rank, and suffers body-image issues from a scar along her spine, which was twisted at birth. (“We’ve got to open you up / To straighten you out” is the best lyrical motif Goodbar has going for it.)  Cheek’s co-rocker, Kevin Townley, supplies voices, growls, and hip thrusts for the many men who enter Theresa’s life after she invents “Terry,” her bed-hopping, bar-cruising alter ego. Today, the Goodbar story has been reduced to a metonym for seventies sexual masochism, a reactionary bedtime story. Bambï and Waterwell respond by converting all emotional content to style and strut: Todd Solondz meets Todd Haynes meets Sweeney Todd. Which sounds fun, and is: The propulsive songs throw off sparks, and it’s a great live spectacle, in the vein of last fall’s Karen O-vaganza Stop the Virgens.

But, like that show, this one suffers from a hole in the heart. When the tempo slows, so does our interest: There’s very little human contact or content here. What, exactly, is Goodbar saying, with its dazzling costume changes (courtesy of the talented Erik Bergrin) and telethons worth of celebrity video-cameos (from Kelli O’Hara, Bobby Cannavale, and Moby, among others)? Ira Glass, in a potentially image-shifting pivot, shows up as a college-prof Lothario who, with some help from the Catholic Church, puts Theresa on the path to degradation. The cumulative effect of all his close-up lip-licking and suggestive pencil-sharpening is 100 percent ridiculous. What’s the attitude toward the source material? Mere Millennial contempt? Voyeuristic interest? It’s hard to get close enough to this show to tell. Goodbar is surprisingly sanitary and sexless, and despite all the onstage grope-miming and pelvic-popping and corset-of-dinosaur-vertebrae-wearing, Cheek and Townley come off as the safest, chastest twosome this side of Will and Grace. After a harrowing prologue — Theresa’s killer’s excruciatingly detailed confession — Goodbar keeps us at a decorous distance, neither seduced nor repelled: We’re watching Lady Gaga’s punk-infused grad thesis. If she can’t be somebody’s someone, Theresa sings, she’ll be “nobody’s everything instead.” That’s the kind of thinking that lands you in a big nowhere. Goodbar lights that nowhere up, but illuminates only vacuity.

Contrast that with The Mad Ones’ Samuel and Alasdair: A Personal History of the Robot War, a show that’s in absolute control of its own irony knob. Set in the musty studios of “Soviet Free Radio” in Irkutsk, Samuel — we slowly come to realize — is set not in the communist past, but in an alternate present: North America was destroyed decades before, in a surprise robot invasion. (The details are scant, muddled by propaganda, and totally unimportant.) The Soviet Union, last superpower standing, made common cause with other surviving nations and staved off the attackers, but only temporarily. Now four broadcast veterans — host (co-creator Joe Curnette), pundit/expert (co-creator Marc Bovino), chanteuse (Stephanie Wright Thompson), and one-man house band (Michael Dalto) — put on their weekly hour of golden-age American nostalgia while putting up with power outages, bizarre intruding transmissions, and the unmistakable sense of something massive and maleficent coming closer and closer.

No show could be better suited to the subterranean bomb shelter that is the New Ohio’s new home. The Mad Ones have dressed the space with faded Constructivist poster art and looming towers of cardboard boxes, and equipped it with every cobbled-together obsolescence of Golden Age Radio, from chunky ribbon microphones  to vacuum tubes. But Samuel is more than the sum of these parts: Unlike a great many shows that make use of these same elements (genre fiction, retro nostalgia, etc.), this production is built primarily on the remarkable chemistry of its ensemble. Their grim looks bespeak long personal histories that never need to be explained or belabored; they rarely break the frame of the radio show itself, and when they do, the effect is sensational. Their exaggerated situation is funny and fatal all at once, with no need for any extra underlining. If the show’s metaphors sound like an ad hoc hipster play chest, I assure you: This is one of the most smoothly functional theatrical metaphors you’ll have seen in a while, a great, small play about decline and denial and the subtler, unspoken bonds of devotion. Without a crumb of optimism, Samuel & Alasdair is still a spot of warmth in a cold world.

Goodbar is at the Public Theater through January 15.

Samuel & Alasdair is at the New Ohio Theatre through January 21.

Low-Budget ‘Devil Inside’ Opens With Big $35M Weekend To Start 2012 Defying Slump

Sunday, January 8th, 2012

What It Means To Get An ‘F’ CinemaScore…

SATURDAY PM, 4TH UPDATE: Not since before Halloween has a horror picture overperformed at the North American box office on Date Night, and a long while before then as well. So where did all the scary movie fans go? Well, even rival studios Friday night were saying hooray for a Hollywood genre winner. But not without some snark. “The industry starts out the year with a big number — and a people pleasing ‘F’ CinemaScore,” one rival studio exec snorted. But there’s no arguing that Paramount may have another Paranormal Activity mega-profit project in theaters this weekend. (FYI, Steven Schneider from the Paranormal Activity team is exec producer on this pic as well.) The studio’s low-budget Insurge label made a $ 1M acquisition of The Devil Inside and scored a big $ 16.8 million Friday and $ 12.2M Saturday, including $ 2M midnights from 1,400 theaters. Now the question is how much that ‘F’ word-of-mouth for this genre film playing very young and very ethnic will be frontloaded. But it’s rare for a studio to recoup its cost from just the midnight shows. This ‘found-footage’ exorcism surging in 2,285 runs for the normally slow post-holiday weekend was a great start for 2012. This weekend could gross $ 130M for overall moviegoing, +20% from last year (when the opening was Season Of The Witch with a mere $ 10.6M).

The win pushed down into 2nd place Paramount’s Christmas and New Year’s topper M:I4 co-funded by David Ellison’s Skydance Prods. Meanwhile Sony Pictures’ The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo had the smallest drop of top pictures all week, demonstrating its adult audience is still out there after a slow start. Among Oscar-buzzed films, DreamWorks/Disney’s War Horse holds for the Top 5 while Focus Features’ Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy expanded into 809 locations and snuck into the Top 10 for the first time since its limited release five weeks ago:

1. The Devil Inside (Paramount) NEW [2,285 Theaters]
Friday $ 16.8M, Saturday $ 12.2M, Estimated Weekend $ 35M

It’s the second film for Paramount’s low-budget Insurge label. And much like the studio’s Paranormal Activity franchise, the studio focused on marketing designed to trick audiences into believing this nonsense. So the campaign made the low production values The Devil Inside into the film that “The Vatican Doesn’t Want You To See”. (At what point do naifs wise up? Maybe now because audiences gave this crapfest an ‘F’ CinemaScore and single digit Rotten Tomatoes kudo.) It was a no-brainer for the studio to debut the trailer on October 21st with Paranormal Activity. The Halloween time period also proved key online, with viral scare videos and 911 calls pushed to fans. Since the film was acquired for just $ 1m, Paramount also kept the marketing cheap, cheap, cheap. The TV ads kicked off during AMC’s The Walking Dead finale November 27th. There was a big ethnic push. The Hispanic campaign included English and Spanish language nets, wild posting, digital boards, and radio in the top 12 Hispanic markets. Branded horror programming roadblocks were placed on  Sify, Chiller, AMC’s Fear Friday, and IFC Fright Night. Select targets for high-profile finales included Terra Nova and American Horror Story. And getting into the holiday spirit, the studio made a red band trailer as well as 10-sec scary radio spots to counter-program Christmas and New Year’s Eve across all 6 live network and cable late night shows covering festivities. (No wonder the heartland hates Hollywood…) There was Viacom’s usual MTV synergy, this time featuring  reactions to the film from Jersey Shore numbskulls Deena and Vinnie. The spot also aired on the show’s premiere the day before the film’s opening. ”The Devil Inside iPad and iPhone application served as another opportunity to scare unsuspecting fans,” an exec tells me. “The application is presented as a test to find out how possessed you are, that in turn surprises fans with a scare from the film. Since its launch in late December, the app continues to see 4-star rating on iTunes from a global user base.” As for the midnight shows, Paramount organized radio DJs, food trucks, and prize giveaways to make each screening seem special. Using Twitter as a tool, the studio on Friday morning sent out tweets about “an unexpected theater possession” where the film broke down and a contortionist from the film scared a packed theater of fans. The lengths to which Hollywood has to go to market horror these days. Ugh.

2. Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol (Paramount) Week 4 [3,555 Theaters]
Friday $ 5.7M (-45%), Saturday $ 8M, Weekend $ 18M, Cume $ 169.7M

Weekend project: Create a family calendar

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

Who’s picking the kids up? When’s that dinner party? When were you planning to tell me that you’re going on a month-long business trip to Asia?

Ah, the family calendar. Bring harmony to your household in 2012 by setting up a family calendar. Microsoft's Juliette Guilbert shows you how.

Except in our case, it was calendars, plural—and therein lay the problem. Our work and personal schedules were scattered across six devices and the cloud. And what with dual careers, commutes in opposite directions, and two overscheduled schoolchildren (flute! piano! choir! chess club!) we desperately needed a better way to track and communicate who was doing what, when. (I was having visions of my 9 year-old waiting forlornly under the light of a street lamp, stranded after a pickup miscue.)

To make 2012 operate more like a well-oiled machine than 2011 (or any preceding year), I decided to take control of our scheduling system. What we needed was One Calendar to Rule Them All—something that could sync lessons, appointments, work meetings, and travel plans across our phones, home computers and work computers.

Here’s what I did:

1. Created a family calendar in Hotmail and shared it with my husband using the Live ID he uses on his phone. Learn how. I made him a co-owner of the calendar, so he can update the family schedule, too. I also gave him the ability to see the To-do list (a girl can dream, right?).

Step 1: Share your Hotmail calendar.

2. Installed Outlook Hotmail Connector on both of our work PCs, and then added our Windows Live accounts to our respective Outlooks. That made our work and family calendars show up side-by-side, right in Outlook.

3. Congratulated myself for knocking off one of my New Year’s resolutions during the first week of January. If only they were all that easy.

(Bonus tip: If you don’t want mail from family and friends flooding your work inbox, set up a new Hotmail account, share the family calendar with it, and add that one to Outlook instead of your primary Hotmail account. And if by some hideous mischance the person you want to share the calendar with doesn’t have a Windows Phone, just point them here—and then give them a good talking-to about how great your phone is.)

Now—whether I’m sitting at my desk or on the bus—when a meeting request comes in I can immediately see if it conflicts with someone’s dentist appointment. And if either one of us adds something to the family schedule in Outlook, it syncs up to Hotmail in the cloud and back down to our Windows Phones automatically. No fuss, no muss, no checking multiple calendars.

And no little girls waiting alone under streetlights.

we had 2 90 minute sessions with 15 student in each (both sold out quicker than all the other sessions and we even had people sneak into the sessions because they wanted to attend)

we did a powerpoint presentation on what craftivism is, why we set up the Craftivist Collective, our manifesto and showed past project as well as ideas for future ones. we then watched our instructions video on how to make a mini protest banner then had 30 minutes to make them whilst chatting to each other around a big table. we ended with a chat about craftivism and how the session was. the feedback was awesome! and some students want to take our ideas back to their sixth forms and universities and set up craftivism sessions and projects. one girl even wants to write her Sociology degree dissertation on us!

we made 30 Mini Protest Banner kits; 15 on climate change and 15 on sweatshops.
