Happy Hour 2/4/11 5

And a happy Friday to you too. I woke up this morning to a package from an unknown sender. Turns out it was a free laptop from Google! I’ll take it.

Apparently I was accepted in to their pilot program where I will be reporting bugs as I find them with the laptop and it’s OS. Sounds good to me. Happy day.

Now on to my contest.

“Nailed-It” Blog Post:
Ian Daniel Stewart wrote a blog post stressing advice that never gets old. I was just reminded of it’s brilliance yesterday when working on a new writing project (an ebook).

Ian is the guy who helped me create this theme indirectly through his wordpress tutorial.

“Nailed-It” Blog Post:
If you’ve ever taken Gary Halbert’s advice and read his list of books, twice, taking notes the second time… then you remember that he also had a set of ads you should get your hands on and read. Well, I admit, I skipped this step when I couldn’t find them all.

Well apparently THE Ryan McGrath has found them all. And he made a blog post linking to them all. Thank you RYAN.

From My Life:
What is there to say other than I got a free laptop!? Actually I’m excited about something else. If you follow me on twitter you may have seen me linking to Tyler Fortier’s new album, “.​.​.​And They Rode Like Wildfire Snaking Through The Hills ‘Neath The Scarlet Sun.”

Tyler went to my high school a couple years behind me and has apparently gone on to make awesome music. Love this concept album that consists of songs from characters in the wild west. It’s unique and awesome.

He’s also got some other great music at his Myspace Page.

Song To Start Your Weekend
Check out October 26th, 1881 from Tyler’s concept album above or She Ain’t Your Girl at his Myspace page. They’re great.

    Wow, you wouldn’t believe how long I was looking for that Rolls Royce ad. Awesome.

    Ya that must have taken a lot of work. I only found a few myself.

    Time to copy those adds in a blitzkrieg fashion.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    Thanks Andy. We got to bring the real kudos to copywriter Ryan Mcgrath.

    Not a huge amount of work. Just two years of constantly looking, and burning out my eyeballs with Google searches. πŸ™‚

    Thanks for the mention!
