Alexander: Sunday was a good day for the opponents’ fans

The world according to Jim: • Maybe it’s nothing. Maybe it’s a lot. But two scenes in greater L.A. Sunday, 12.3 miles apart, were a reminder that the NFL’s renewed presence in this country’s second largest metropolitan area remains a heavy lift. • In the afternoon, at least one-third of the fans assembled at the Coliseum wore 49ers red. By the end of the day, in the closing stages of San Francisco’s dominant 20-7 victory over the Rams, they were about 80 percent of the remaining crowd and doing ...

How hate can fuel brand love

While there are many amazing things about social media, it’s also true that there’s no getting away from hate. Social has become an arena for the normalisation of vitriol; a hotbed for trolls and ranting. Brands are not exempt from this. Community managers are often on the end of anything from complaints to death threats. As Taylor Swift said, haters gonna hate. Welcome to the internet. It’s a far cry from the concept of brand love that agency planners are obsessed with. It’s unlikely that even ...

Governance sank WeWork from the start, a VC and Stanford lecturer says. Here's what any founder can learn from Adam Neumann's cautionary tale.

WeWork has sparked many a conversation ...

Alexander: Yes, Staples Center turns 20 this month

Who knew, or could even guess, just what the impact could be when Phil Anschutz and Ed Roski first talked about building a new arena in downtown L.A. The negotiating, between the owners of the Kings and the Los Angeles City Council over what was planned, who was paying for it and what the city’s liability would be, began in earnest early in 1997. There were naysayers. Some wondered if losing the North Hall of the Convention Center, where the arena would be built, was a deal-breaker. Others worri...

Taylor Swift's Neon Green Nail Polish Proves the Trend Is Fall-Appropriate

Taylor Swift just proved that the neon green nail polish trend isn't going anywhere this Fall. The singer stepped out in New York City with her boyfriend, Joe Alwyn, and performed on Saturday Night Live with a bright green manicure we couldn't stop staring at. While the color is super vibrant, this hue is slightly cooler than other neon greens we've seen on celebrities in the past. The electric shade looked great peeking out from underneath Swift's blazer and made a strong case for wearing neon...

listening to joni: #9: don juan's reckless daughter

Don Juan's Reckless Daughter, 1977 I discovered I didn't own Don Juan's Reckless Daughter either on LP or CD -- which means I don't know the music from it, except for anything performed live or on compilations.This means I have only my current opinions and impressions, and no earlier thoughts to compare them to. I can conjecture that I wouldn't have liked this album when it was released in 1977, or in 1987 for that matter, because I wouldn't have understood it. I hope by 1997, when I was beginn...
