Inbox of Immaturity: Goodbye from Here

Hey readers,

I (normally have) got 5 on it (yes, that's a Luniz shout out), but this week I've got 10 for y'all. Quite a random assortment of sites, videos, and news. But I'm giving you the extra dosage because I'm outta here today.

Yes, this was my last week at Fallon. As an unwritten rule, we really don't talk about ourselves or our agency, but I'm gonna break it since, well, what's the worst that'll happen...

As a native-New Yorker, I didn't think there was any chance I'd move to Minneapolis. Even if I'd have the chance to work in Fallon's planning department. But I visited figuring I'd at least get to see the city and the agency from where some of my favorite ads came. I knew by lunch (which was sandwiched between 10 interviews) there was no turning back; that I'd be moving if I was offered the job. Since I arrived almost two years ago I've felt supported, challenged, fulfilled, energized and inspired by this group of people—many of whom you "know" from reading their posts. To say since moving I have had no regrets is an understatement. The group I referred to as Fallon planners has become my family and helped me create a home away from home. Thank you all so much. I'll miss you.

Alright, I know, but you didn't have to read it. That's the beauty of the first amendment, free will, and a scroll bar. We all win. Here's immaturity to get you through the rest of your Friday and maintain your status as the dude or dudette who always sends funny forward's.

1. My competition
2. An Under Armor employee is excited to be on TV
3. "Flirt" Rmx by R Kelly and Broken Social Scene
4. Lawsuit for a Bad prognosis
5. Star Wars Episode 4 animated
6. An old ESPN commercial with Gheorge M. dancin'
7. USA Today's Top 25 Meltdowns
8. A letter to Gov. Arnold S. to Free Paris
9. Sweet Getaway Driver
10. Our new blog celebrity Tay Zonday singing and another song Chocolate Rain (may be better than Candy Rain - act like you don't know Soul 4 Real.)

Finally, here's where the immaturity (and some other stuff on brands, my life, pop culture/entertainment, jokes and jokes and spaghetti) will be moving. So, yes, there will be more shenanigans, more tomfoolery, more ballyhoo. Less originality.

All the best,
