It’s Been 30 Days….

It’s been 30 days since my last blog post and I have no one to blame, but myself.

I’ve been slacking big time and it’s not like I haven’t been doing anything in the past 30 days.

Actually, I’ve been busier than I have ever been.

My daughter’s Quinceañera took place this month and I had family in town from all over the world to celebrate this milestone!  It was a lot of fun and it’s amazing for me to think that my little Princess is no longer a little Princess.  (Truth be told, she’ll always be my little Princess no matter how old she is! ;>)

The time with the fam seemed to go by too quickly and before long the ‘noise’ of having a full house became eerily quiet once everyone left. (I miss everyone being here.)

Add to the mix, “The Rise of Sneaker Culture” sneaker exhibit, at the Brooklyn Museum, that I’ve been working on and the accompanying book (“Out of the Box: The Rise of Sneaker Culture”) opened to the public on July 10th.

So, if you’re heading to NYC, please pay a visit to the Brooklyn Museum to see the amazing exhibit!

Also, Future Focus Media Co-op has been busy with video projects and WorX Printing Co-op hired us to shoot a promo video telling the story about printing cooperatives and how beneficial they are to the economy.

You can watch “The History of the X” WorX Printing Co-op video in it’s entirety here.

I promise I’ll do a better job of posting more frequently and in the meantime, here are some photos from the Frederick Douglass communal reading that took place on the Worcester Common.

Where Is Orson? #WhereIsORSON

Photograph of Orson taken on Feb. 13, 2015.

Like many that drive on Route 290, I often know I’m close to home when I see Orson, Polar Beverages’ mascot, chillin’ on the roof of the headquarters.

Well, as of late, I noticed that Orson was nowhere to be found, this after seeing him throughout the winter and earlier this spring.

Is Orson getting a makeover or is he taking a well deserved break after this harsh winter?

Inquiring minds want to know!

Stay tuned!

Worcester Roots Project: #WeOwnIt Campaign

Photograph of Future Focus Media Co-op logo.Worcester’s newest corporation doesn’t have a management hierarchy, but it does have bi-weekly meetings in which everyone at the table is an equal.

It’s a theory known as cooperative business: Everyone is an owner. And Future Focus Media has become Worcester’s face in what some are calling the new economy.

The company, which has been an incubator under Worcester Roots for three years, recently incorporated, according to Sergio Castillo, who said he is the company president in title only. ~MassLive.com article by Michael D. Kane
