- There's been movies about boxing. There's been movies about wrestling. Now there's a movie about...wait for it...arm wrestling. Well at least they didn't name it Pulling Johnson.

- Ogilvy does its part for diversity.

- The AD Club is organizing their second All-Access Pass of the Year. The event will be at McCann Erickson on Tuesday March 10 from 6-8 pm, featuring a "roundtable" with Chief Technology Strategist, Faris Yakob.

I guess you don't remember "Over the Top" with Sly Stallone.

You know, right after I published I kinda remembered that movie. Not sue I ever saw it though.

Damnit. Two people beat me to an "Over the Top" reference... I doubt this movie will have the emotional pull of Sly. Seriously, what better way can truck driver win his son's love then by winning an arm wrestling contest?

btw,my 12-year-old mind appreciates the Pulling Johnson joke.

I'd be willing to bet that the joke mentioned is the only reason people will remember the movie.

BTW, May I use the image in my blog, Steve?

Best,
