The Polls are Open – Adweek’s 2012 Digital Hot List

Vote for your 2012 Digital Favorites

The political debates on Facebook are getting…well…yawn…

Instead of being unfriended because you’re trying to convince people to change their vote, share your opinions on things that really matter, such as which website contributes most to time suckage (Twitter, Reddit, Pinterest), the video game forcing you to reclaim your life, your favorite app and other assortments of digital entertainment.

Adweek’s annual Hot List where consumers voted primarily on favorite print ads and magazines in order to get metrics on ad dollars, was born 32 years ago.  But it today’s digital world, the Hot List has been upgraded to include a digital media section so consumers are now asked to vote on innovations such as iPad developments, pop culture websites and new cell phone apps.

By adding digital selections Adweek made this year’s Hot List Reader Poll categories more relevant and fun while giving an opportunity for trendy digital connoisseurs to learn about something new.

 The polls are open, and results will be online and in print December 3.

Hunted Series from X-Files Writer/Producer Premieres on Cinemax Tonight

New thriller series Hunted premieres tonight on Cinemax at 10 pm/9 Central.

Former award-winning writer/producer for The X-Files, Frank Spotnitz is at it again with a smart new action series called Hunted. The series focuses on Sam Hunter, a private security operative for the elite private intelligence and security firm Byzantium. Sam is played by Melissa George (Alias, In Treatment) and portrays whatever her assignment calls for; from sexy to sullen, and clever to crazy her character is a force to be reckoned with.  She proves that during the first opening minutes of the show by kicking, punching, snapping necks and shooting a bunch of attackers.

If you’re a fan of The X-Files and the mystery and suspense of the show then you’re sure to be a fan of Hunted. Although unlike The X-Files, Hunted is more complex and needs to be watched in order as more of the plot is revealed throughout the episodes.

Spotnitz tells Wired, “In a traditional spy story, we assume our spies are the good guys,” said Spotnitz, who huddled for six months with three other writers and a story editor to make sure all the pieces fit together. “Whether or not everything the U.S. or British government does is good, I think we take it for granted that they’re trying to do the right thing. But when you enter the private world, you can make no such assumptions. Private interests are trying to accumulate wealth and power, and whether that serves the public interest or a greater good is purely incidental. I thought this was an extremely interesting subject worth exploring.”

“Middle-earth” Money and Stamps

New Zealand known as “Home of Middle-earth” Commemorates The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey with Coins and Stamps

Since the release of The Lord of The Rings in 2001, New Zealand has been known as “Home of Middle-earth,” and is excited for another leading role in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey premiering in the capital city of Wellington on November 28th.

J.R.R. Tolkien didn’t mention what currency if any was used in Middle Earth but if he did The New Zealand Post is certain Gandalf the Grey and Bilbo Baggins would’ve been featured on it. These characters are very important to New Zealand as the exposure the country gains by the books and movies naturally spikes tourist interest. Which is why they’ve created actual legal tender as well as stamps to commemorate the movie.

These collector items are available to pre-order now and in addition to Bilbo and Gandalf other characters such as wizard Radagast the Brown, dwarf king Thorin Oakenshield, Lord of Rivendell Elrond and Gollum will be featured on the coins. Coins range in denomination from a NZ$1 to a NZ$10 and retail from NZ$29.90 to NZ$3,695 for a premiere gold coin set.

So,  My Precious, My Precious clear off a shelf and make room for your new Hobbit collection with plenty of time to admire before the movie is in theaters, December 14th.
