My Cyber-Living-Room During LOST

I’m sure I’ll get ridiculed for admitting this in a public forum but I did not watch the television phenomena of LOST when it first debuted in 2001. Even more disturbing? I did not watch it…ever. I’m not sure how I missed six entire seasons of one of the most critically acclaimed television series ever produced but I’m  making up for it now.

I’ve been watching LOST religiously for the past few weeks and I am enthralled. The plot twists, the Others and the moments that used to leave Americans breathless are all new to me and what is the first thing I want to do every single time something wild happens on the show? I want to turn to Twitter, use a branded hashtag and find fellow fans experiencing the same level of exasperation when Kate frolicked into a trap. Unfortunately for me, I am twelve years late and Twitter’s users no longer care about LOST. I am just “live” tweeting into a black hole.

Could you imagine the absolute internet implosion that would occur if LOST and Twitter both hit their prime at the same time? Twitter only experienced the final two seasons of LOST, when social television was barely a thought. In 2009, Twitter had only 18M users and LOST’s season finale was seen by nearly 10M. At the end of 2012, Twitter passed 500M users; we haven’t yet been presented with a television show of LOST’s caliber to perform on Twitter.

All I’m saying is that during marathons of LOST, my Cyber-Living-Room is very lonely. If you feel like joining me, I’m on Season 2 and we can create a social strategy for the fans who showed up late to the party.


Instead of a Full-Time Position OR an Internship…Maybe I’ll Just Have a TV Show

When you read the title, you were probably like “wha- wha- what?” Don’t worry, nothing is in the works and I’m still striving to find a job. But until that happens, I heard through the grapevine that Ms. Oprah Winfrey was looking for ideas for a new television show. Who better to host a TV show than me?

But seriously, I came up with the idea of hosting a TV show called “Jobless in America.” It will draw attention to the severity of the unemployment rate while raising spirits of recent grads, those who have been laid off or those who took a job they hate. I would find CEOs and entrepreneurs who are young but amazing. I would interview only the most successful business people who do not have college degrees. I think this could be just what America needs. Click the link below to watch my video and vote if you like what you hear!
