Gorkana Group US, which “offers a more effective way for PR and marketing professionals to access customised media intelligence,” released a post-CES analysis of social media influencers at CES 2014, or International CES (or the dreaded name they hate, “Consumer Electronics Show”), and found that my blog, Zennie62.com, or Zennie62blog.com, was...

Google hates blogs and bloggers and it’s found two new ways to show that it does. Google quietly removed the long-standing “blogs” option in the top menu. In the past, and for most of Google’s history, one had a choice between “news” and “blogs” in the top menu. But, and as of Tuesday evening January 21st, that’s...

MaiWorld.com says its the “leader in affinity USB flash drives” but I question that because the company that sought out Zennie62Media to assist in its CES 2014 promotion of its products does not honor agreements. MaiWorld.com owes Zennie62Media $350, of a total $850 job, and while that’s not a lot of money to some, it’s the principle of the situation...

Courtney Stodden, the 19-year-old starlet, was recently seen out with this blogger’s friend and famed Hollywood and Beverly Hills Publicist, Edward Lozzi. If you’re a regular visitor to this space, you know that Edward Lozzi is also the publicist and, with Norby Waters, one of the producers of The Night Of 100 Stars Oscar Party that this vlogger annually...

Martin Bashir resigned from MSNBC because he suggested that someone crap down Sarah Palin’s mouth. While some of you think that Sarah Palin had it coming to her, what bugs me about the whole deal about Martin Bashir resigning from MSNBC is that he really didn’t have to say a thing about her. I’m really sick and tired of hearing about Sarah Palin....

Damon Bruce is a previously pretty-much not-well-known sports broadcaster who toiled with pleasure for KNBR Radio until being reportedly suspended, indefinitely, for saying that a woman’s place is not in the sports broadcasting room.   Then Keith Olbermann made him famous. Here’s what he said in audio, peppered with my rather heated response in this video: There...

There’s a lot of Oakland News out there, so let’s get to it. First, I have it from several sources that Oakland City Councilmember Libby Schaaf (District Four) is considering a run for Mayor of Oakland. This is a fresh rumor that come up on Tuesday while this blogger was at two different events. It flies in the face of her original claim that she wasn’t...

Cory Booker tweeted with stripper Lynsie Lee for a politically calculated reason. Cory Booker’s got a gay problem that some in his camp think is a kind of weight around his campaign for Senate. And no, it’s not making the ones concerned happy. It’s not that they have anything against any homosexual in politics, and many of the people I’m blogging...

Zennie62Media will return as blogger press for the 2014 2014 CES Las Vegas. It marks the 5th straight year that Zennie62Media has been approved to cover the giant consumer electronic show.

Mike Silver, my friend from Cal days past and present and future, has finally landed at the NFL Network, and in the process gone fully from old to new media. Mike previously spent six glorious years at Yahoo! Sports, and before that was the legendary Senior Writer with Sports Illustrated. Here’s a talk with Mike, or “Sil,” at the NFL Draft lunch at...

TMZ, the entertainment blog ran by Harvey Levin, is a genius work that’s served to redefine media and elevate the status and power of blogs – let’s get that out of the way. But TMZ’ got a Justin Bieber issue like no one’s business. It seems they’re trying to find negative stuff about him, and they serve it up on what seems to be a...

Google has teamed with Netflix and Amazon to produce “Google Chromecast,” a device that this blogger says will disrupt mainstream media. And I’ll go a step further and says that Google Chromecast will kill mainstream media as we know it in just two years. Why? First, understand what Google Chromecast does. It allows you to put your YouTube videos...

Comic Con 2013 is full of surprises, like the way I met Tom Kenny, the voice of SpongeBob SquarePants. I left the NERD HQ Party at Petco Park, and was just walking past The Omni Hotel, and toward The Hard Rock Cafe, en route to Nobu for a bit. On the way, I passed a group of three people, one of which a man who was looking up, shielding his face, and the other two,...

The Chicago Sun-Times, facing ever declining revenues in an age of camera-equipped smartphones, camcorders, and bloggers and vloggers, held a meeting with its photography staff to announce they’ve been fired. And, according to AdAge, that means 20 people will lose their jobs, but including freelancers, the number comes to about 30 people. The Chicago Sun-Times released...

Roger Ebert. Wben I saw the words “RIP Roger Ebert” on Twitter, I knew I’d grown older at just that moment. Because, you see, I grew up with Mr. Ebert and Gene Siskel, and tuned in religiously to their TV show “At The Movies.” That was Siskel and Ebert. When Gene Siskel died of cancer in 1999, I felt as if a part me of passed on. ...

“Lil Wayne Dying” It’s the current number one search term associated with the rapper and Hip Hop artist Lil Wayne. Friday evening Lil Wayne had a seizure and was reportedly checked in to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. The appearance of Lil Wayne at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center was neither confirmed or denied by hospital staff as per their policy. But...

Paul Ryan’s a man that, as a Democrat, I firmly believed could be a formidable candidate for President of The United States in 2016 after I met him. Now, with this attack, er new attack, on Obamacare by the Wisconsin Representative from Janesville, I’m firmly convinced Ryan’s not only not interested in being POTUS, but has lost his mind, and has ignored...

Want proof that Twitter’s become the World’s information source? Read on. So this blogger, me, took his common several time a day look at Google Trends for Monday, March 11th and found that sitting right at number one position was “Mother’s Day.” A click on the link for that Google “hot search” revealed content, blogs, and...

Google News is the World’s number one news aggregation service, and it’s gets much of its respect because it sits literally atop Google’s search platform, who’s market share is still unchallenged at 67 percent (and while a Russian search platform Yanex has moved past Bing for the number two spot, but I digress.) Google News has guidelines that...

The Rand Paul Filibuster has catapulted the Kentucky Senator into American History forever. It’s also served to rip the Republican Party apart. Senator Rand Paul’s 13 hours of filibuster on drones and with respect to the CIA nomination of John Brennan drew praise from staunch liberals and progressives like Amy Goodman of Democracy Now, and at the same time...

Hollywood, CA – As this blog’s originating from the Loews Hollywood Hotel, the story of how this blogger got to this place, less than a day from the start of the 85th Academy Awards, is summed up in this embed produced by my Zennie62 On Vidoco page (I’m on the Vidoco Advisory Board): As you can see, the day started with a BART ride to SFO from Oakland,...

Posterous has announced it’s shutting down its platform April 30th, as it’s Founder and CEO Sachin Agarwal said that they’re focusing their efforts 100 percent on Twitter. That’s a massive mistake – not focusing on Twitter, but that they have to give up 4 million content producers in the process. In fact, the more I think about it, the madder...

As of this writing, Google-YouTube is doing evil. It’s preventing any blog related post that has YouTube in its title from showing up in the blog search section of Google’s search engine. That’s right. If you do a search for “YouTube” and then press the “blog” link to see what blogs are writing, all you’re going to get...

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. You know the story about that special reindeer that had “the very shiny nose,” who grew up and learned to like who he was and to face his problems head on? Well, as this blogger blogs, the cartoon TV version of the 1939 children’s book by Robert May is on the CBS Television Network. So, I did a quick search and learned...
