Politics got you down? Drink beer!

Here's one for all the #ink lovers. Tattoo Ranch, in the #FortWorthStockyards, is as #Texas as it sounds, but probably not in the ways you're thinking. Unless "warm and welcoming" are the first thing you think of when you hear Texas. In which case, it's exactly that.

I'm no +Anthony Bourdain, but I set out to see how much Memphis I could fit into 18 hours, and a small budget.

A new, old school RPG from Square Enix? What's not to love? Except the hours of sleep you'll probably miss, trying to complete just...one...more...quest. Because, "without...you...this world...is...lost." Or something like that. But that's every Final Fantasy game, on the addictive gameplay and engaging storyline, fronts.

I probably shouldn't admit this in public, but Brave Exvius is my first foray into the world of free-to-play mobile RPGs. Or any RPG for Android. I hope it doesn't turn out to be a pay-to-win thing, but even if it does, the FF series is so cool, I'll probably be okay with it.

This isn't exactly surprising information; the "fat-burn zone" is not high intensity, whixh means it doesn't burn tons of calories. If you're not that into heart rate training, and have been relying on gym cardio machines to let you know what "zone" you're in, this article gives a decent overview of what to aim for in a workout routine, instead.

And this is why no one will complain when +Google​​ takes over the world. They just keep making it better.

And maybe being a kid just got cooler?

"Advertising is based on one thing: happiness. And you know what happiness is? Happiness is the smell of a new car. It's freedom from fear. It's a billboard, on the side of the road that screams with reassurance that whatever you're doing, is okay. You are okay." -- Don Draper, Man Men ep.1

Mysogyny, corruption, and great quotes, oh my.
Yes, I'm very late to the Mad Men party. It was influencing the latest styles when I was just getting into #copywriting, much of it for #fashion brands. And I do find the clothes exquisite. But I was busy, and trendy shows are many.

If I'd had any idea what a trove of quotable passages, not to mention marketing and advertising insights the show had to offer, I'd have dived in sooner.

For a #copywriter, the job is to communicate why and how a company or product will make customers happy. How it will improve their life, and somehow give them more freedom. This can sound manipulative, but in the best case, it's about the same as anyone telling their friend about an awesome new thing they like. Maybe a craft beer they just "have" to try, a brand of motorcycle gear that's super cool and functional, or a refrigerator with cameras and an LCD screen.

At its best, that's what marketing is; sharing something with a lot of friends, that you genuinely believe will add some amount of happiness to their lives.

And while you're thinking about that, check out these totally Mad Men-esque shoes. Aren’t they awesomely retro?

Simple? Yes. The best advice usually is. Easy to implement? Probably not.
