One of the best-loved perks for the children of Turner Broadcasting employees has to be the annual Trick or Treat on Turner Street when the Techwood campus is transformed into a Halloween festival for all the kiddies. There were hundreds of kids and parents on hand for scary festivities created by Turner’s more creative types, as well as a marching parade around the circle in front of the old Mansion (seen in the background at left). Sam had a grand old time last year in his Tigger costume, and had a blast again yesterday, this time sporting his Red Sox outfit. In this photo gallery, you can see I captured some coworkers and their kids as well. Enjoy.
Yes, it’s a reference to a somewhat annoyingly catchy 80s tune – but it also refers to Chinese belief in the mystical power of music. Well, I can’t tell you much about that as we didn’t have time to hear much other than some funk emanating from the hotel bar on our arrival and the cheesy ‘zen relaxation’ CD in our Mandarin Oriental rooms, but I can say that I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Hong Kong this past week. I’m writing this post as dawn breaks over the tarmac at Seoul’s Incheon Airport, where the Korean Air 747s are lined up like pale blue birds sunning themselves in the morning light. We have a five hour layover here before the 13+ hour flight back to Atlanta – although my ticket says I leave at 10am and arrive at 10:30am. Too bad that’s just a deceitful lie! I’ll write more about the trip when I return, but for now, check out the slideshow of photos I’ve uploaded so far. I have a few more from the Mong Kok market area to add as well. See you in a seven thousand or so miles.
A really nice new product was released by Turner Classic Movies TCM.com yesterday (Reuters coverage here) – the Media Room. Very slick product with lots of classic movie material for your viewing pleasure. And see below – you can embed content off their site as well, like this intro by Otto Preminger for his film ‘In Harms Way’ starring John Wayne.
