Salutations Ladies and Gents!

I got so excited with all the hype
around the Super Bowl, (One of the underling components of what this blog portrays) I leaped over the post that warmly
welcomes my viewers and gives them a better understanding of the delightful
topics that will be up for discussion!

Why the name Collideascopes?

Kaleidoscopes is a Greek word which means observer of beautiful forms. Yet the actual apparatus, combines arbitrary patterns to form beautiful symmetric arrangements.

I decided to have these two aspects Collide into one: The observation and the action.

The observation is the core element of what this blog pertains to. By encompassing articles and surveys related to all of the ranges of creativity: culture, art, music, individualism, socio-economical mind frames, I hope to gain the insight of the subscriber’s likes and dislikes. -This information will therefore leverage clients’ go-to market strategies to achieve a high
return.

This brings me to the second segment of Collideascopes. –The action: Brand/ Business/ Artist development to those who need it. I’m a Marketing Major and when I envision how organizations/ individuals can cultivate and execute plans that support a specific objective, an indescribable euphoric
feeling engulfs my spirit!  Between the savvy wordplay to the clever implementations, it is never a dull day incorporating different techniques to different brands, events, ideas- you get the point!

We as people, sometimes tend to magnify things of trivial substance and disregard the simple things that have the potential to bloom into something of large magnificence. In hopes to surprise, challenge, and amuse the viewer, Collide-A-Scopes is the doorway to the “Fun House” of the world. Collide-A-Scopes is a passage where ideas
collide
together to then create a refined
scope
of innovation. Hence the name, CollideaScopes.

Many Thanks for taking the time out to read my blog. *Special* thanks for your patience as I get all of my preliminary material on here along with my site, www.collideascopes.com and Twitter account, @collideascopes. Your opinion does matter. So PLEASE provide as much feedback as you can! I want to make this a fun
and
interactive
experience not only for myself, but for you as well.

Yours Truly,

Lady London

Super Bowl 2013 – An “Electrifying” Surprise

With Ray Lewis playing his last game, the Harbough sibling rivalry for the Lombardi Trophy, and the electrifying performance by Beyonce Knowles, there was a lot of excitement with this year’s Super Bowl. There was, however, one surprise that no one was prepared for -The 35 minute Blackout. Yes, half of the Superdome went without power towards the end of the third quarter preventing the game to continue.

As technicians frantically scrambled around trying to resolve this issue, the anxiety of the players and coaches heightened. They were only a few commercials during this unforeseen incident (all CBS in house promos) while the rest of the time was filled with commentary about the players stats and uncertain updates regarding the power failure with the occasional pause for the commentators to collect their thoughts on what they would say next. Clearly, nobody was prepared for something so unexpected. –Especially the owners of CBS. After all, marketers make enormous investments for a 30 second commercial slot. If we were to estimate 4 million dollars per 30 second slot during the duration of the blackout, CBS would have made a womping total of 4.2 billion dollars!

I’m sure next year CBS will be better prepared for any unplanned situations. One thing I would suggest is upselling their advertising slots for any potential delays in the game. If there are no incidents, with the technological advances dealing with the World Wide Web, CBS and the Marketers should create an agreement where the ads that were not featured on television, would be features on the Live Stream for a discounted price.
