Everyone loves a great party. Everyone loves the chance to mix and mingle with their fellow industry mates. And that's what conference parties provide. So, serious or unserious, we consider it our job to make you aware of all the partylicious goodness that's scheduled for each conference. So, here we go.

As previously mentioned, Moss Networks, along with Advertise.com, Adknowledge and GenieKnows, will host its VIP MIX + Mingle at the Hudson Terrace Wednesday, November 4 from 10PM to close. Also on Wednesday, The Oldtimers Foundation will host an event at the Thom Bar from 7PM to 9PM. Also on Wednesday (yes, this is always the problem), Elaphant Traffic will host a VIP (is anyone not a VIP?) Launch Party at 1 Oak from 7PM to 11PM.

Also on Wednesday (get used to this), Mozes, Billboard and ad:tech will co-host the official Opening Party at the Roosevelt Hotel from 7PM to...we have no idea. Also on Wednesday (yawn...), Eyeblaster will host its 8th Annual Eyeblaster Awards party at Providence from 8PM until midnight. And, and, and also on Wednesday (WTF???), the Mother of all Parties, Money Makers III will take place at Pacha from 9PM until, well, breakfast the next morning.

That's My Billboard! No, It's Mine! No, Mine! Waa! Waa!

Pity the poor wild posting. It's under attack by New York-based Public Art Campaign. Specifically, the group is targeting NPA, a company which maintains a collection of specific wild posting locations.

Public Art Campaign representatives Sunday were seen around Manhattan with buckets of white paint covering NPA wild posting boards. According to Gothamist, less that an hour after the boards were whitewashed and non-commercial art applied, NPA had reclaimed the boards are reposted them with commercial messaging.

It's like two kids fighting over a toy (Mine! Mine! Mine!) until it breaks. Which then leads to a dueling temper tantrum of epic proportion.

According to the New York Times, five people were arrested in association with the standoff.

Honestly. All Teenagers Aren't Dropouts, Criminals, Wild Animals

"This video has attracted...a few views. Its by the RNLI and Proximity London and its just a mess. I can't work out what the hell they are promoting. The video talks about how great Apple are, hoodies and the youth.

Which would make sense if the RNLI was a children's charity, its not its a Lifeboat Charity in the UK.

It just doesn't make any sense and seems to be a case of award hunting rather than doing the charity any good.

Sending in as ANON as my friend works at Proximity and says that everyone is in a major panic over this."

OK, OK. We'll promote your video. Next time just ask.

Yawn. Hot Chick Strips in Back Seat For Samsung

yfke_sturm_samsung_allure.jpg

If you're going to shoot a "viral" of a hot chick like Yfke Sturm stripping in a limo to pimp your Samsung Allure 5 phone, the least you could do is film it so we could actually see what was going on. Especially when she's got assets like these.

Oh wait. We get it. You shot it to purposefully make us drool for more. It's viral strategy 4,745. Sorry. We should know this stuff by now. Our bad.
