Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 2

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 2

Continued from my previous post….. Did you read it? You should right here. The next interesting issue from my previous post is about social media influencers turning celebrity. Not like Brad Pitt celeb status but more like a Tila Tequila celeb status. Usually these C-D-listers, so called celebs are so entitled that they are here one day and gone the next. Out faster than onesies for the holidays. In this case, these people are usually managed or have agents like the guy I met a while back and is now feeling “holier than thou” trying to sign “digital” talent. He… Continue Reading

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

Not All Influencers Are Created Equal: Celebrity vs. Influencer Part 1

This post was written a few months back while visiting Los Angeles (I got out for good this time because I served two full sentences there and have not looked back since) and I have been so busy that I did not get around to sharing then but am making time right now! This is an important post and describes the difference between a celebrity and influencer in snarky terms, of course. Ahh Hollywood. You never cease to provide me with ample amounts of snarky material to address on this here blog. I love you for that (and just that)…. Continue Reading

Melany’s Mantra: Repeat, Rinse And Repeat

Melany's Mantra

Every morning I swear to repeat this mantra. I am going to print it out and hang on my mirror. It is the summer and I want to take some time for myself while still being able to do the things I WANT to do. This means not feeling obligated to do things others think I SHOULD be doing. Here we go. Cue the chanting music and theme lighting. Add a candle and throw in some incense but please spare me the Nag Champa. I think I left that scent back in San Francisco on Haight Street when I was… Continue Reading

Beverly Hills Ain’t So 9021-OHHH!

Beverly Hills Ain't So 9021-oh

I am in Beverly Hills right now doing one of the most dreaded task a person has to do…..pack a house and move! So, while I am traveling my mom and I thought it would be fun to treat ourselves to a suite at the SLS Hotel. WRONG! This has been anything but relaxing and I would have been better off sleeping on the hardwood floor of my house with no bedding, no electricity, and curled up next to piles of cardboard boxes (which roaches love to breed in- BTW). This hotel charges a lot of money for us to… Continue Reading

NFL Fall Fashion Picks: Cheering The Cardinals To The Playoffs

I am a fan of a lot of things but some of my most passionate fanaticisms come in the form of favorite sporting teams and fashion! Sports and fashion go together for me like peanut butter & jelly, snarky & Melanysguydlines and Teddy Brewski & Melany Berger, and…well, you get it. I am a sporty chick, but just because I can throw and catch a ball better than most men, does not mean I don’t know how to dress for a sporting event. Trust me. There is a right and wrong way to dress for a football game and you… Continue Reading

Hollywood (Hollyweird): So Cliché, But This Is LA

Hollywood (Hollyweird): So Cliché, But This Is LA

I am in Los Angeles for the week and thought I would revisit a post that describes how living in Los Angeles is not like what you see on TV. There are some great parts about living in Southern California (including the weather and the shopping) but there are some other reasons that make it challenging to live and navigate this harsh environment (they could probably film an episode of Naked and Afraid in some parts of LA). So, while I am in Beverly Hills, I thought I would share one of my favorite snarky posts and see if you… Continue Reading

“Thank You” Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon For Talking New Album & Tour With Me

“Thank You” Sevendust’s Lajon Witherspoon For Talking New Album & Tour With Me

By now, we all know that I am a rocker and in my past life I worked in the music business doing marketing for rock bands. I bleed rock n’ roll. Music is truly the soundtrack of our lives and I remember every concert I have been to, what song was playing in good times and bad. It has helped me through tough times and is always there for me when I need it. So, when I had the opportunity to meet Lajon Witherspoon from Sevendust I hopped on a plane and took a flight to Los Angeles. I was… Continue Reading

I’m On An Influencer Tour With Cox Business Supporting Startups

Get Started 757 with cox business and Inc magazine

As most of you know I spend the better part of my life on a plane or traveling in a car with my boyfriend a.k.a. my suitcase. He is great but I just wish he would carry his own stuff because I am tired of pushing him around. What’s the fun in that? While working in the music business I always thought I would be on tour with a rock band but find myself 10 years later touring cities I have never been to while representing Cox Business and Inc. Magazine at stellar events around the country. I support and… Continue Reading

Let’s Play Ball: Live With SF Giants Bryan Srabian at AT&T Park Friday 5/7/15 for Social Hangout

Let’s Play Ball: Live With SF Giants Bryan Srabian at AT&T Park Friday 5/7/15 for Social Hangout

I have Matt Williams rookie card in mint condition. My sister was the only girl invited to Barry Bonds birthday party when she was 7. My mom bowled with some of the wives from the SF Giants team circa 70’s and I learned how to fire a softball from the hot corner when I was just a little, snarky one. I grew up playing every sport under the sun. By the time I was in high school, I was an annoying date for any baseball game since I had the ability (and still do) to call pitch location before the… Continue Reading

Video Did Not Kill The Radio Star: 16 Times I Wish I Had Video Proof

recording my life because weird things are attracted to me like flies to shit

I am going to tell you something that might not surprise you. People don’t love to read. I would totally look at pretty pictures and funny videos if I could learn everything I needed to know by doing just that. Wouldn’t you? I am so ADD and OCD that sometimes I can’t even re-read my own blog posts. But, don’t tell anyone because that could be a bad look for someone who blogs full time. HA! Anyway, watching a video is so much fun. I wish I had my camera on me for so many experiences I have had along… Continue Reading

32 Snarky Relationships Tips from My Dog Teddy Brewski- PART 2

32 snarky relationship tips from my dog Teddy brewski - part 2

There are so many posts on this site that sometimes I forget snarky nuggets I have written. Thankfully, there are sites that help me get content to you without it being lost in the blogosphere forever such as StumbleUpon. If you don’t know it, you should. You could spend the rest of your life on that site and never get up to go to the bathroom. I don’t recommend it because I dated a guy that did things like that and I think he is still sitting in front of his computer, but I do recommend allotting a certain amount… Continue Reading
