The Three. Le Trois. El Tres

Happy Thursday!

Here are the three articles (and bonus ones, because it’s almost Memorial Day and you’ll need something to read) that caught my eye!

I love you all!



P.S. Optimism > pessimism (that’s why optimists see more opportunities)


1) Learn something new

A) paint by numbers is the new “cool” thing to do. Why? It can be custom made to suit your needs (eg: a paint by numbers picture of you). The article is behind a paywall:

Paint-by-Number Sets Are Back, Better and Even Customizable

B) who says you can’t create a sitcom from tweets?

An executive in Hollywood is thinking of a way to turn this into a real sitcom:

This TV writer is bringing your fake sitcom ideas to life on Twitter, and it’s hilarious

C) Maskne skin care

If you’re an essential worker (thanks for keeping everyone safe during this pandemic!), you’re probably wearing a PPE (personal protection equipment) and a N95/medical mask.

Maskne is skin irritation from wearing these objects.

It was a matter of time before someone found a way to make money from this:

The rise of ‘maskne’ skin-care marketing

2) Your favorite brand – on a face mask?

Linked to item 1C, you knew brands were going to find a way to make money from this:

Why big brands are jumping on the face mask bandwagon

P.S. If you can find a way to have a company sponsor your face mask, you would make a lot of money.

3) Look, a cloud

Technology’s impact on the entertainment world?

Moving to the cloud so the team can access the tools they need to finish their project.

A case study on how ABC’s own and operated (O&O) tv stations did this when the pandemic broke out (take notes to see if you can use them at work):

Early Cloud Migration Helped ABC O&Os Pivot


Stay at work workout

If it’s sunny, go outside for a walk. Or to do some gardening 🙂




Author: Research King

My real name is Nick but my clients call me the Research King. Why? Because I love researching and finding information. And they’re literally amazed when I find the information for them. I love analyzing how technology influences the media and entertainment world. Because the media and entertainment industry is constantly changing. And technology is playing a big role in changing it (from CD’s to live-streaming). Finally, I love coffee, going to the gym/working out and anything to do with athletic leisure clothing (I’m a big Lululemon fan). P.S.
