The Blind Side

What does Catwalk's principal/owner Adie have in common with Tim Mcgraw, Sandra Bullock and Kathy Bates? A little movie with a Golden Globe nod (best actress, Sandra Bullock)and nomination for the SAG awards(female actor in a leading role, Sandra Bullock) called The Blind Side. OK, so we admit--a little stretch, but Adie had an amazing experience working on the film and is proud to have been a part of it. Catwalk loves the Phil Fulmer cameo appearances too. The Blind Side is a great story that reminds each of us that we can be extraordinary.

Popular site HARO(Help a Reporter Out) has competition!

According to PR Web (http://www.prweb.com/releases/2009/12/prweb3369714.htm) the popular site HARO might be challenged by the new kid on the block, reporterconnection.com. The new Web site launched today and it is a free service which allows journalists to announce source needs via email to up to 51,000 experts in the company’s database. From what we can tell, HARO and reporterconnection.com are similar, the latter has tweaked what worked for HARO and made it more "journalist-friendly" and will not publish the journalist's email addresses like HARO does via daily email blasts.

Check it out for yourself: www.reporterconnection.com.

Are you an expert in your field? Do you want a shot at free publicity because you can help provide information for reporters and editors? We signed up, maybe you should too!

Hard to Buy for Guy?

Dads, boyfriends, brothers, college-aged sons, coaches, teachers...we all have one or more of those hard to buy for guys!

Consider getting him a gift card or an annual pass to Liquid Highway Car Wash if you're local in Charleston or Mt. Pleasant. If not, google the car washes in your area.

An annual pass to a car wash won't be returned and you know they'll use it. Everyone likes a clean car, but some of us aren't willing to do it ourselves. Then there are the other eco-friendly folks who know washing their cars at home isn't the best idea for our environment. Annual Passes to Liquid Highway Car Wash are green and guaranteed not to lead to another "Oh, thanks honey. I needed new socks."
Suprise him this year!

It's Always a Jam Good Time

The Freeloaders head back home Saturday, December 6th for a 10pm show at the world-famous Windjammer on Isle of Palms. Charleston's premiere beach bar and club became a fixture on IOP back in 1972 when it was founded by two brothers. After surviving Hurricane Hugo and many a Budweiser Bikini Bash through the years, the Jammer is one of the best places to hear live music in Charleston. The venue has seen many great acts like John Mayer, Edwin McCain, Big Head Todd and the Monsters and Cracker grace its stage.
