I am pretty sure that I have used this clip before but really, it seems appropriate for today....
I'm taking to the blog to invite you all to my session on Pop Culture at the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE) upcoming conference in Dallas. It's on Tuesday, August 14 at 10:45 in room C156...
Yes, I am going to spend at least 10 minutes putting pop culture into its relevant context in the United States as an integral part of our political, racial and economic history. Then, we are going to spend the rest of the time dissecting our own pop culture personalities and seeing what leadership and community building lessons we can derive from it.
Now - here's the best part. If you are coming to the session be sure to pack your pop culture best. If you come to the session with something that expresses your pop culture/sub culture media/TV/movie/music/internet personality, I will put your name into a drawing.
Here are some ideas but be creative -
- Concert or band t-shirt
- Your favorite Hard Rock t-shirt from your favorite city
- Concert tickets you have been hoarding for the last ten years to PROVE you were there
- 80's blinged out bracelets
- Your best RuPaul-esque drag (this will get you five entries)
- Sonic screwdrivers
- A color printout of your avatar from World of Warcraft
- An Avenged Sevenfold soup tureen
I mean whatevs. Go nuts. Let's close out ASAE 12 in our own freakish style. Nobody will care what you are wearing, sporting or dragging along behind you....it's the last day and you will be surrounded by conference zombies who are focused on getting a cab to the airport....
This is all about who you are and maybe meeting other people with secret TV obsessions just like you!
