Summer Movies 2013
By Ed Peters I imagine that most of my peers, who have built and maintained careers in the entertainment industry, spent the summers of their formative years inside a movie theater. If the 1970’s was the last golden age of American cinema, then June 20, 1975 marked the beginning of the modern movie blockbuster era. That’s when Steven Spielberg’s [...]Continue Reading →
My First Time.
By Luis Camacho I remember my first time like it was yesterday. I was really nervous, my stomach was in knots and I was sweating profusely. I also remember being really excited. My senses were in overdrive. I really wanted my first time to be great! I worked hard to get to that point and I was now at the moment of truth, the [...]Continue Reading →

Lunch Meeting at Ballona Creek
By: Melinda Giordano SPPR, Inc. moved to its new work space almost a year and a half ago. One of the first things I noticed about our building was that it was painted a bright yellow. This, in itself, was exceptional. But another thing of note was that we were located by a creek. It was girdled by concrete, true, but it was [...]Continue Reading →

“It’s Our Time”
By Our Own Scott Barton In 1984 I was a fledgling independent publicist with clients as disparate as actress/Playmate of the Year Shannon Tweed, Showtime’s series of Gallagher specials (yes, lunatic-smashing-watermelons Gallagher), Olympic champion diver Greg Louganis and chef Roy Yamaguchi (who went on to establish the Roy’s [...]Continue Reading →
Welcome Back, Kotter! …Or Ummm, Julie!
By Alex McDougald If you’re looking for clever Passover, Easter or April Fool’s Day references here, you’re not going to find any. You stopped by for a dose of that quintessential SPPR sarcasm? Well, it doesn’t live here. Nope. Not today. I’m foregoing all of those fun, perhaps predictable, tropes to give a straightforward [...]Continue Reading →
To #Hashtag or Not To Hashtag…Is that the question?
From our PR and Social Media Coordinator — Jarred Hopkins Starting in 2009, Twitter made the hashtag ever so popular. The system was used as a search mechanism on the site to link users who were discussing the same topics.

St. Daniel’s Day???
By Alex McDougald St. Patrick’s Day is around the corner, and because clearly I descend directly from the sweet land of Erin (check the last name on the byline folks) electing me to author this week’s SPPR Blog post was the only natural thing to do. Come this Sunday, you’ll no doubt find me at a bar, dressed in green from head to [...]Continue Reading →
