How the @CrownPlaza Anaheim completely failed during my stay there. Twice. 0

How the @CrownPlaza Anaheim completely failed during my stay there. Twice.

I’m sitting on Virgin Airlines flight 312 from LAX to MCO after an insanely productive weekend in Los Angeles.  Seriously insanely totally mega productive. It was great. The low point, though, is sticking in my brain and annoying the hell out of me –  so here I am writing about...

QUESTION: How long can a company keep your credit card info? RE: Mossimo’s Pizza in Vero Beach

Methinks it may be time to pick up a phone and call the Better Business Bureau.  Before I left for Japan last month, I ordered pizza from a Mossimo’s Pizza in Vero Beach, Florida (formerly Vitorrio’s II) and experienced one of the worst customer service experiences ever. You can read...

Why are small businesses failing? Just ask Mossimo’s Pizza in Vero Beach, Florida! #Service #FAIL

Everyone makes mistakes. It’s going to happen and sometimes you just have to go with the flow.  So when the delivery guy showed up at my front door tonight without my complete pizza order, I kept that in mind.  The actions that took place afterwards, though… Let’s start at the...

This quote from @OceanDeepSea proves that, even after, he STILL doesn’t get it. #PennyArcade

I just stumbled across the MSNBC story where they interviewed Ocean Marketing’s Paul Christoforo – the man responsible for the ultimate public relations failure in the history of the Internet. (For some back story, read this: http://penny-arcade.com/resources/just-wow1.html) So after getting his ass handed to him on the Internet, he decided...

I don’t know what my percentage is.  I’m not the 1% since I drive a Ford and not a Ferrari.  I’m not in the 99% because I don’t feel entitled to my “fair share” based on my years spent in college which (for the record) are few, scattered and involved...

College Website Spelling FAIL

Tonight I was getting some work done on uploading some old anime convention photos to the Wasabizilla Facebook page.  One set was from Anime Express in 2002. Anime Express took place at Embry-Riddle.  I checked the spelling of “Embry” by Googling it.  Here’s what I found. (click on the image...

The Battle of BotCon 2010 (Continued)

For those of you just joining us, read this – and then pick up with the conversation here. For everyone else, I took the time this morning to read the flood of replies from yesterday.  I will give BotCon’s supporters some credit; they are VERY passionate about their event… which...

The BotCon Chronicles… 94

The BotCon Chronicles…

The story to far… 1. Around the end of last year, I got word that BotCon, the Hasbro sponsored official Transformers convention, would be coming to Orlando, Florida. My friend Joey Snackpants and I became as giddy as schoolgirls at a Twilight movie premiere. 2. We contacted the convention offering...

Ford FAIL when it comes to my 2008 Mustang GT…

I bought my 2008 Mustang GT about a year and a half ago with the intent of keeping it on the road for as long as I had done with my old ’91 Trans Am (which lasted to almost 250,000 miles.)  The first sign against it, though, happened over the...

Pundits, Postings, Bloggers and "Bad Sushi"

First off – Anime Festival Orlando X was a blast, and congrats to the convention organizers for another successful year! (Check WasabiAnime.com later this morning for some video of our events there.) It seems that while we were out and about for the weekend, the folks at Anime Sushi wrote...

MegaCon + Anime Sushi = FOLLOW UP!

So it seems my blog post this morning raised a few eyebrows – and I got an email (and then phone call) from Beth Widera, the owner of MegaCon. After a lengthy discussion, I agreed to clarify a few facts and we agreed to disagree on others. FIRST OFF –...

EDIT! BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE FOLLOW UP TO THIS POST BY READING HERE!!! There is a great book by John C. Maxwell called “There’s No Such Thing As Business Ethics.” The idea that the book proposes, in short, is that ethics are ethics regardless of whether they have...
