This month, due to other peculiarities, I ended up with two pieces in the magazine, so yay! Double shot for everyone!
The first piece is about how it’s getting tougher and tougher to meet “the one”? There’s an interesting solution I look at and ironically, it involves not looking at all.

The second piece is all about getting in shape for the new year. Some new and interesting workouts for you, right in the Las Vegas Valley!

This is really a phenomenal piece. The awkwardness and passion, the downright humanity on display, is enough to make me really happy today.
There’s a part of me that wants to know the follow up story, did the pairings become couples, become friends, but I guess that’s the writer, the storyteller in me. I want to know the rest of their story. But then there’s another part which thinks this is perfect the way it is. We don’t need to know what happens because the only that matters, in this case, is the present.
The fact they all had a connection seems to me to be the most wonderful thing of all.
UPDATE: Turns out this is a clothing ad. Not sure how I feel about that. As a marketing bit, great. it gets everyone talking. And it’s certainly not the first time viral marketing has been used to sell a product. But then I guess this is what everything has become – there is no are anymore, it’s all commerce. I still like the piece for what it represents, but no longer for what it shows. They say the people (all of whom are “personalities” of some sort) really didn’t know each other and the reactions are genuine, but at the same time, as performers, there’s a certain amount of expectation they’re bringing to the project so I can no longer trust them.
Ah well… until the next time we’re all taken in by something which tugs at our heartstrings only to get at our wallets.
