How We Kick It

Since the inception of this blog I’ve made it a general rule to avoid the topic of work…especially the specifics. These days, maybe not so much. I’ve been happily employed by Clockwork Active Media Systems since early 2005, and our kickass little company was just named one of the “Great Places to Work” by Minneapolis/St. Paul Business Journal. Another Clockworker put together a Clockumentary video to mark the occasion. Enjoy!

How We Kick It At Clockwork

Bonus: The little man is on another impromptu overnight with grandma. I’m going to get the jetlagged husband out of the house for a night on the town. He wants to see Talladega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby. Well…why not? We’ve already seen Little Miss Sunshine (fan-freaking-tastic) and I have reservations about The Illusionist…but only because another movie about magicians, The Prestige, is coming out soon too, and I adored the book by Christopher Priest. Personally I wouldn’t mind seeing QuinceaƱera. But there is no way I’m wasting my time or money on Snakes on a Plane, and that’s final.

    What kind of a title is “Snakes on a Plane” anyway? I thought my partner was joking when he told me about it.

    Hi Sharyn!
    You work, like, 3 blocks from my office (which is in the single level strip-business-center across from Intellegent Nutrients).

  3. Georgia, a seriously silly title. Unfortunately The Ballad of Ricky Bobby wasn’t all that either. Next time I’m picking the movie.

    Hey Missy! Too funny. We’ve been in our space since last Fall and love it. I don’t eat out much for lunch, but I have ventured over to IN a couple of times. They have vegan cake (seriously dangerous).

    What about factotum? Aside from the plot, I’m tempted to see it just to see Minneapolis again. Although my husband has an issue with parts being at Augie’s … which apparently is a bar none of those characters would ever be in, according to him.

  5. Funny thing is, I happened to walk by when they were filming Factotum downtown St. Paul (outside of the courthouse) two summers ago. Seems like it took a long to be released but I would like to see it.

    Ssssnakes on a plane! You know you want to.

    I saw it with Carrie on Friday night. Believe me when I tell you that it offers nothing more, and nothing less than the promise inherent in its title. Snakes on a plane! We fortified ourselves with some drinks and shots at the neighboring drinking establishment. I must say it helped.

    C’mon, there’s even an audience participation script for your enjoyment.

    Pick any body part. Well, guess what! That body part gets bitten by a snake. Yup. That one.
