Books and movies

Four new books on my shelf that I can’t wait to dive into. Some of them may be of interest to you:

The New Rules of Marketing & PR by David Meerman Scott
(see Scott’s blog on which he basically blogged his entire book)

What No One Ever Tells You About Blogging and Podcasting by Ted Demopoulos

Creatively Self-Employed by Kristen Fischer (recommended by Cynthia Morris)

The Art World Dream by Eric Rudd

In the meantime, two DVDs are waiting for me to watch:

New York Stories (Nick Nolte as artist)

Sketches of Frank Gehry

An all-day publishing workshop tomorrow means a very busy weekend.

Optimize Your Online Marketing

This program emphasizes your limited capacity. It’s not about balance. 

It’s about being fulfilled—about enjoying the life of an artist. To do that, you seek to optimize how you spend your precious time.

It’s not a social media course and it’s not about posting more!

  1. Ted Demopoulos, Blogging for Business

    Alyson, Nice to see my book on your list! And I can highly recommend David Meerman Scott’s “The New Rules of Marketing and PR.” A somewhat similar book on my reading list is Paul Gillin’s “The New Influencers” If interested, I’m glad to send you a copy of my latest “booklet”, “Secrets of Successful Blogging” — just email me your address. Going to Amazon now to look at “Creatively Self-Employed”

  2. One of my friends recently suggested Life, Paint, and Passion by Cassou and Cubley. I started it yesterday. I’ll take the summer to slowly read it, and, if my initial instincts are right, I’ll be re-reading it for years.

  3. A really good art movie I just watched is “Who the @#$% is Jackson Pollock?” – it gives an interesting look into the art world as a retired truck driver in Kansas tries to find out if her $5 thrift shop find is a genuine Pollock. Interesting how some experts refuse to accept it because it doesn’t have the ‘soul’ of a Pollock, even though it does have his fingerprints!
