A Loud (Business) Opportunity Jul31

A Loud (Business) Op...

As deep sounds of bass and building synths shake the festival grounds, a feeling of anticipation is prevalent among the masses of youth staring in one direction, waiting. The music builds like a roller coaster inching up a slope and when it hits the peak, it drops. Although the crowd knew it...

Well Done, Axe

I have always been amused by Axe commercials, but at the same time I have always argued that they lack emotional merit. Are they funny- yes. Are they mildly ridiculous- absolutely. But again, will the average viewer feel any sort of the connection to the commercial when it’s...

“Why the Mask, Bruce...

Bruce Wayne claims in The Dark Knight Rises, which premiered last weekend, that he masks himself as Batman so that he stands as a symbol; the hero could be anyone. As we all know, a simple trip to the movie theater became a tragic unfolding of events for the people of Aurora, Colorado. We do...

The constant onslaught of new tunes – and the ability to access music whenever and wherever – can make it hard to keep up. Here at Our Space, we celebrate our diverse taste in tunes and welcome one another’s contribution to the playlist of our lives. Here are three of my favorites so far this...
