End of the year lists

Ten best this, 99 top that…

Fifteen years ago, I was nominated for an American Film Institute Award for “Best Kid’s Entertainment/Game Video”. Flew out to California, wore a tux and everything. I was up against Kukla Fran and Ollie (actually it was Sherie Lewis and Lambchop, but you get the idea). The prize was a neat statue, awarded by the two hosts, Gary Coleman and Bruce Jenner.

No I’m not making this up.

They got to my award. The spotlights spun around.

I lost.

To a sock.

I was heartbroken. I swore never to enter anything ever again.

All, a long way to saying that John Moore picked Purple Cow as the best Marketing book of the year.

Makes up for a lot of socks. Fast Company Now
