We Interrupt This Program to Bring You...Self Promotion

Self-promotion is for losers unless, of course, it's yourself you're promoting so we, unabashedly, will share with you that Adrants has received a complimentary nod from MediaPost's MEDIA magazine along with Adjab, Adverblog, AdPulp and Freshglue. We like to noteriety and the company and love what author Liz Tascio had to write about Adrants.

"Written by marketing expert Steve Hall, this blog ranks as one of the superpowers, lauded by Forbes, Advertising Age, and the Wall Street Journal. Hall sets the tone with a kitschy martini glass in the banner and cheeky posts, and offers brief, savvy hits on innovative campaigns, industry news and research, and a little dish. You always feel like you've learned something, and that it was fun. Hall also collects weird marketing arcana - like the fact that Clark, Texas, changed its name to 'Dish' in exchange for free cable."

We're just going to bask in all that adoration with a mid-morning martini. Why don't you all grab one too because without you, there'd be no Adrants martini glass in the first place. Many thanks to all.

Hey, congratulations! Actually, I thought this was going to be about the CNN Pipeline "stories" they've been airing on Headline News all week.

Darling(s):
I love your newsletter. Read it every day. LOVE, love, love the content and the tone of it. But, would you please -- pretty, pretty please -- use your spelling/grammar checker? Some days (like today), it's almost painful to read...

Martinis are soooo 5 years ago....
How about a Moscow Mule?

You deserve the praise, Steve. Your work on AdRants is tremendously pleasing to all your readers! Thanks for the inside edge. It keeps me 'cutting edge' around the water cooler.

I'll raise a Martini glass to you for 2006.

Why does my martini only have an olive?
