Here’s the story of a man and his Jeep from Newport Jeep and how it brought him to the beach, to a girl and then to a cookout to eat some sweet, sweet hamburgers. Read more
A construction crane fell in TriBeca early this morning tragically killing one and seriously injuring two others. The crane took some time to fall and even let out some eery sounding moans before it ultimately crashed onto Worth St. Two construction workers, Glenn Zito and Chris Andropolis were on the 46th floor of 56 Leonard Street where they noticed the crane swaying. Zito took out his phone and started recording video of the the crane in the moments leading up to its crash. Their commentary, filled with dozens of bleeped “Oh Shits” might be the most New York thing to ever happen. Read more
The Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade is a great excuse to sit on the couch with a cup of coffee and watch people sing and dance their hearts out for a few hours. It’s also a wonderful excuse to express opinions about all sorts of stuff on twitter. Read more

Ludacris is skeptical of Obama’s policies.
Ludacris is not a fan of the occult.

I work on a website called CoxHub.com and I was responsible for a lot of the creative and social marketing around the Providence College basketball team during their runs in the Big East and non-run in the NCAA Tournament.
While Cox Communications no longer has the rights to Providence College basketball (those now belong to Fox Sports 1), engagement with the fans and the program has never been greater because of a strong push to be more involved in the day to day conversation around the team. Using multiple touch points and mediums, engagement has grown tremendously over the course of the last year, culminating in this month’s activities in New York City and Columbus, Ohio.

Obviously there are bigger companies and fanbases that get more engagement, simply because of the scales they’re dealing with, but the methodology is the same.
and try to be the best.
I am so proud of this goddamned tweet.

For the uninitiated, Harrison Ford was involved in a plane crash as he was learning to fly a vintage WW2 plane, which of course would make any reasonable man think of this classic scene from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
