Sean McCarthy

An update on Sean McCarthy ...

Hi Steve - 

I'm now with Publicis (Publicis Modem, to be specific), running the General Mills Digital business. 

I also 'bit the bullet' and moved out of Manhattan last summer after seventeen years. Anne, Catherine, and I are now living in Larchmont, up in Westchester...so far, so good...



Rich Siegel's new blog


This announcement arrived in today's email:

Hey Steve,

Just checked jayday recently.
Good to see all the ex-Chiat people up to cool things, like jumping out crashed planes.

Here's my latest:


I'm told it's funny.

But what do I know, I'm an underemployed freelance copywriter.

Thanks in advance,

Rich Siegel

[Ed. note: My favorite entry is one about the evil of Zyrtec's evil single-tablet packaging, which I have attempted to open myself. Whoever designed the packaging must have trouble during his or her own toilet-training.]

Lady Brain


From the lovely Lauren Schiller ....

Introducing Lady Brain!

My friend Steph and I have just started a rather lively podcast called Lady Brain. Think Car Talk meets Dear Abby, with touch of Cosmo Mag. Go to www.askladybrain.com to listen in!

In each 10 minute episode, we give candid advice on the stuff you think only happens to you. Don’t feel like dealing with your own drama? We’ll hash it out for you on the air! It's primarily for the ladies, but fellas, don't be shy.

Help us spread the word and listen as often as you like:
-Sign up for episode updates and ask advice on our site: www.askladybrain.com
-Join our Facebook fan page: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lady-Brain/68945161514?ref=nf
-Forward this email to all your friends (or those who you're sure won't mind a little dirty talk)
-Find us great sponsors! The karmic payoff will be amazing, and there could be a referral fee in it for you.
-Add theladies@askladybrain.com to your address books so we don't hit your spam box.

Help us keep the dream alive! And most of all, tell us what you think!

Why this site has been lonely recently

Dear Devoted JayDay visitors,

I apologize that the postings here have been so infrequently lately. I have been extraordinarily busy these last few weeks. Keep visiting.

Lost alums found


Welcome Hillary Jordan, from the class of 1989-1994.

And also Kelly Waltos, a senior producer from 84-97. She and a friend of hers run a great blog, the masthead of which is seen above. You can visit it by clicking here.

Cubicle Prank

These office workers have a jolly good time playing a prank on a colleauge which he's off on vacation. However, if you worked at Maiden Lane, it seems perfectly normal.
