I'm in Manhattan for a few days, post-conference to visit the Google NY office and for a few meetings. It's been a few years since I've been here and I'm glad to see that the neon industry is still doing well.

I'm staying at the Ian Schrager's Paramount and it's ultra hip. Since I arrived late and was travelling during dinner I went down to the bar to order a light meal. The kitchen was closed so I turned to head out, but I made eye contact with a trucker cap wearing hipster sitting alone in the bar. Turns out it was Jamie Kennedy, star of stage and screen. I said 'Hi' before moving on, since I was doing the 'guy who looks 5 seconds past appropriate' look.

Jamie has a hidden camera show that pre-dates Ashton Kutcher's Punk'd and Ashton owns the trucker hat thing. My humble career advice for Jamie, pick new headgear. I can understand the visor not working out but just say no to the mesh trucker hat, next thing you know you'll be hitting on Demi Moore! If Jamie reads there is the remote possibility I will receive a sucker punch in the elevator tomorrow. I'll have to lay low, I'll let you know how it goes.
