When teachers break the precepts,
behaving in ways that are clearly damaging to themselves and others,
students must face the situation,
even though this can be challenging, criticize openly, that’s the only way.

how teen moon was scared because she was suddenly queen and didnt have idea what to do because she was a child facing adult responsibilities
how marco needed help from his parents and even then he wanted to see his friend and carried those sweet seeds all the way
how star cried and asked for her mom when she was trapped inside ludo
like im so happy cause i always see how in all the shows the responsibility is put on children shoulders like they were adults or they know what they are doing and then everyone expects them to do everything right but they are just kids and they need guidance.
and that effect you could see it on ludo. asking for being loved and recognized for something in his life.
I’ve been to
an international in-house PR summit hosted by one of my clients this week and
nearly fell off my chair when one of the guest speakers was a VERY important
person from Sony Music Entertainment. Let’s call him John. I won’t disclose his
function and real name because I don’t want to reveal where I was, but based on
his title he definitely knows what he‘s saying and has a lot of industry experience.
was mainly about how to engage with a variety
of different target audiences. Of bloody course one of the first slides he
showed was a picture of 1D engaging with fans which was supposed to drive the
point home that there are some audiences who are more passionate about a brand
than others.He mentioned then that he’s worked with 1D on their albums which drove me into a bit of a freeze.
Because I’m embarrassing,
I recorded parts of his speech on my phone and wrote the most important things
down to share some interesting insights he gave about how Sony manages
their artists’ target audiences, crafts their artists’ social media actions and deals with the
fact that at the end of the day they always need
to get people to buy music.
HOW DOES SONY UNDERSTAND AND MONITOR
AUDIENCES (like fandoms for instance)?
According to John, they have
their very own data-driven digital tool that helps them identify and manage
different target groups for an artist (it’s not perfected yet but has been
rolled out a lot of countries, I think he said 50?) and see where there might
be connections to other artists, who the influencers are, what the specific
target groups are or will be interested in and to identify collaboration
Target groups are being split into four categories: Fanatics, enthusiasts,
casuals, indifferents. These segments are being broken down into even smaller
groups defined by age, genre preference, gender and country. They found that
the older you get, the less likely you’ll be a fanatic or enthusiast.
How does Sony find this stuff out? Well, they survey polled music audiences of every
age in a way that covers either nationally representatives or represent one of
the major top tier cities. People shared their music preferences, consumption
habits, lifestyle, media habits etc. Sony gathered all that information,
analysed the insights and created their
own audience understanding tool.
John, that way everyone at Sony has access to an interactive map of the world of
Sony that looks into segmentations and audiences for every artist while being searchable
in a number of different ways. The tool is pulling from real data, but they are
also adding to that „with things like analytics of platforms like Spotify where
we are able to gather lots of informations about user behaviours and reference
that against things that we do“.
STRATEGICALLY SHAPES PR STORIES
John gave the
example of Snoop Doggy Dog who had launched a new album (song? Idk) around that
time: „There was a week-long debate in parliament around the legalization of
Marihuana, so we just jumped on this conversation and did lots of social
marketing around Snoop with his rolling papers and his spliffs… so maybe that’s
bad taste, I’ll allow you to judge that for yourselves. The point is though that
you are also marketing into a wider
cultural context. [You need] an understanding how that works and where you can
have a conversation that is seamless and not fake, genuineness is quite
“The way you can get people to
connect is: You’ve got a lot of stuff that you want to say. Start under the
assumption that people actually don’t give a shit about 95 percent of it. And
then see which are the bits that might overlap. This is where the
understanding of the audience really comes into its own. It forces us to think before
we jump to execution. The quest for relevance is vitally important.”
Why are people
to connect with a brand/band though? John thinks this is one of the most
underused questions when planning an approach. Why is it that they do specific things? He gave an
example: „We would normally take a
record to radio because we always believe that radio is the thing that breaks
the record. But if my core audience,
my phase one audience – the people that are gonna give that band its first lift
– are on Spotify, what am I doing on radio??“
ENGAGEMENT AROUND ARTIST IS KEY
„The thing is
that you don’t start with a conversation around a product. The consumption of the
product is the end point of a journey where you built an engagement and a fan.
So again, for us that means that when we
sit down and do our plan around our next Robbie Williams album, we start with „How
are we gonna maximize the engagement around Robbie Williams“? because that will
then sell us albums. Not „Okay, we’ll be releasing in a week in November,
eight weeks out we need to be here, here and here“. So we’re not doing product
launches anymore unless [it is suitable for the target demographic]. We have to built a tension and an engagement
around an artist.“
ABOUT THEIR ARTISTS‘ SOCIAL MEDIA
„We run most
of our artists social media channels or at least their official pages, so we are involved in all of those conversations.“
Shocking, I know.
Based on the
situation we face in this fandom,with this band, feel free to draw your own
conclusions about what this information means.
HERE ARE MY KEY TAKEAWAYS:
It’s not news at all, but the existence of their
own audience understandig tool confirms it: the 1D fandom is being monitored, segmented and analyzed. Sony’s strategies
are tightly tied to that fact. Collaborations or artist interactions such as
Louis/James Arthur or One Direction/ Little Mix are most likely the result of a
data-driven analysis of whose fan groups are similar and whose are likely to be
open towards that particular other artist too.
Again no news, but the example of Snoop Doggy
Dog shows that there are strategies behind even the most random photos. Often placements of specific
pictures or stories serve a wider purpose. Hello pap walks, hello
b**ygate, hello Louis Twitter, hello
Liam visibly being linked to L.A.‘s cool singer/songwriter crowd before his
first album drop.
decision to not promote Louis‘ song could very well have been a logical outcome
of the team asking themselves the question „Why?“: Why should we promote
his song with huge effort when we KNOW his own fans are going to do it passionately,
especially if they think we don’t give a
shit? Why not playing that game in order to make them promo it the hardest way
they can?“ Why indeed??
is a huge deal for Sony. John was talking about a lot of bands during his
speech but whenever he was talking about major acts, he always listed One
Direction amongst them (along with gems like Beyonce, David Bowie, Adele). He name-dropped
them at least 5 -6 times in a 60 minute speech. He really didn’t have to
because the audience was in no way whatsoever a target audience. So yes, they clearly
have been and are a very huge deal for them.
Something I noticed when watching the scene with Eclipsa and Moon...
Moon: “I can’t even decide which boy I like!”
Eclipsa: “I know how you feel”
Perhaps Eclipsa faced a situation where she had to pick between the monster who she loved, or a mewman. Maybe she also couldn’t deal with the stress of being queen so she decided to run away with the monster, which would also save her from people hating her for loving a monster
Smithsonian’s National Air & Space Museum Udvar-Hazy Center in Chantilly, Virginia, offers the unique sight of a complete Mercury spacecraft. Many of these spacecraft are available for viewing all over the United States, but this one is special because it did not fly.
During the course of a Mercury flight, several parts of the spacecraft are jettisoned and not recovered, including the retro package. This piece of equipment is visible here in my photos as the striped metal object strapped to the bottom of the heat shield. This small cluster of solid rocket motors was responsible for the safe return of the astronaut from space, making just enough thrust to change the shape of the orbit so that it would meet the atmosphere and use aerobraking for a ballistic reentry.
If this package had not fired properly, the astronaut would be faced with the dire situation of being stuck in orbit. Fortunately, this never happened in real life, but it was captured in the fanciful novel “Marooned” by Martin Cardin, in which a NASA astronaut was stranded on orbit after his retro rockets failed. When the book was released in 1964, it was so influential that it actually changed procedures for Mercury’s follow on program Project Gemini, adding more redundancy to the spacecraft’s reentry flight profile.
Alan Shepard, the first American in space and later Apollo 14 moonwalker, didn’t fail to notice that there was a leftover spacecraft at the end of the Mercury program. He lobbied for a second Mercury flight in this ship, speaking personally to both NASA Administrator James Webb and President John Kennedy about this flight. He told them his idea of an “open ended” mission in which they would keep him in orbit indefinitely until there was a malfunction or consumables began to run out. Webb stated (and Kennedy agreed) that it was more important to shelve the Mercury spacecraft in order to jump start the more capable Gemini Program. Thus, we now have this whole Mercury on display for future generations to appreciate.
The greatest thing about the Power Rangers movie is that it has a black kid, a nerd, a lesbian, an asian, a cheerleader, a quarterback, and an autistic kid, but it doesn’t have The Black Kid™, The Nerd™, The Lesbian™, The Asian Kid™, The Cheerleader™, The Quarterback™ and The Autistic Kid™. They’ve normalized these pieces of their characters where most films exploit the stereotypes. Appropriate representation matters. They didn’t shy away from having their characters face real teenager situations, too. Would any other superhero have one of their characters sharing nudes around the school? Probably not. Lionsgate set a serious standard for superhero movies with this movie.
Alabama just became the third state to provide parents with baby boxes, starter kits that not only contain essentials but double as a bed for newborns.
