Getting Beamed to the Convention

It’s a little surprising how much support I’ve received from my Twitter community for my Jim Beam Me Up campaign. I’m trying to get Jim Beam to send me to the convention and at the same time, entertain my tweeps.

What would YOU do?

Asking Jim Beam to send me to Vegas is much more than just needing the money. I want to do something different, exciting, and bold.

Mr. Scott, energize.

Over the weekend, my mom asked my daughter the question, “What would you do, if you KNEW you couldn’t fail?” That question really bothered me because I know exactly what I would do. I wouldn’t change anything I’ve already done; the decisions I’ve made (and haven’t made) have brought me to this place and made me the man I am today. But, it’s time to start making bold choices and show the world what I’m really capable of.

Bold Choice – Send me to the Star Trek Convention

Jim Beam’s commercial featuring Willem Dafoe explains that all decisions lead you somewhere, bold choice take you where you’re supposed to be. As a forty year-old amateur filmmaker, I feel like I’ve got to start making some bold decisions. For so long I’ve spent my life doing what other people wanted (or what I thought they wanted) and it’s time to start going after the things that are important to me.

I’ve started working on an outline for a documentary (just in case Jim Beam decides to do this)¬†exploring choices that led people there and the choices they wished they had made, or want to make. This would be such a great opportunity for everyone involved. I’ve got my fingers crossed.

Jim Beam on Federation Ships?

I was being interviewed on last night about the Jim Beam Me Up campaign. It was the first time I’d ever been interviewed and it was a lot of fun. We talked about Star Trek and cocktails… It just doesn’t get any better. The radio station is aimed at the players of the Star Trek Online game and when I jokingly asked if you could get Jim Beam in the replicators, I was surprised to hear that you actually COULD! How cool is that?
