The Porn Industry Wants a Bailout?

I’m feeling a bit cheeky from attending CES while there are adult film stars walking around all over the place.  (For those of you who don’t know, CES is held in Vegas the same time the Adult Video Convention occurs at the same location.  Egads).  That being said… I know that you can’t believe everything…

Happy Holidays

From my family to yours… Send your own ElfYourself eCards   Starring Bob Mendelson, Jessica Mendelson, Paul Mendelson, Sydney the Dog and Sammie the Cat.  Conspicuously absent is yours truly.  Call it creative license.

Holiday Cards

I generally dislike holiday card season.  I get dozens of cards that all basically look the same.  They’re bad for the environment and are a bad use of company funds because nobody remembers anything about them or who they’re from.  I did, however, get a great card this year from one of the companies I…

Lawyers Having Fun While the World Craters

Alright, it is a bit melodramatic, but this is funny stuff.  My friend Sarah Reed of Lowenstein Sandler PC. has a sardonic sense of humor and guest posted on Brad’s blog about the ABC’s of everything falling apart.  Sick, but very, very funny.  Two of my favorites are letters N and P.  Here’s a teaser:…

Going Back To School

This past weekend, I went back to Ann Arbor, Mi to attend my 10th law school reunion.  Normally, I get hives when I’m around too many lawyers, but it was a fun event and reconnecting with old friends was pleasant.   There were three big takeaways from the weekend: 1.  Ten years out, it was surprising…

Fill Out Your Brackets For September Madness!

In all the upheaval of the financial markets, it’s nice to see someone with a sense of humor.  My friend, Eric Jensen sent this to me today.  Get your picks into me.  The winner will receive Lehman or WAMU, your choice.      Also interesting, is this this document on the "vanishing act" of investment…

Armageddon?

Amid the craziness of Wall Street, the U.S. auto industry, and Matt Millen finally being fired by the Lions, I received the most bizarre gift today.  EVER.  Clearly this is a sign that the world is ending.   In case you can’t tell, it’s a Barry F’in Manilow Pillow Case.  I mean, who really needs…

Glenn, You Might Want To Talk To Your Pilots

It’s been no secret that United Airlines pilots want CEO Glenn Tilton to step down.  However, when they are passing out wrist bracelets to passengers, you might have a problem.  I now have my first bracelet.  After my week of many United induced travel problems, I might not take it off.

A Little Trippin’ On A Road Trip

I was up in Healdsburg, California this weekend for my good friend, Jason Doren’s wedding.  I rented a car from Hertz (who don’t try harder) and was presented a lovely 2008 Toyota Rav4.  On the dashboard was a button that I was most intrigued by: It was all I could to not to touch it,…

Sweet Bathroom Music

My friend, Carl Rosendahl, has created a very cool video while hanging out in his Los Angeles hotel bathroom the other day.  For those of you who don’t know Carl, he is quite the photographer as well.  He recently completed a goal of taking a picture a day for an entire year.  He took some…
