C.C. Chapman: Two Truths and a Lie

cc-chapman_intrepid

Have you ever played the game Two Truths and a Lie? The rules are quite simple, the players of the game must make 3 statements, 2 of these statements are truth and one (you guessed it) is a lie. Today, boys and girls, we are going to start the game of Two Truths and Lie with C.C. Chapman, the next speaker of SMCDallas. And so here goes: C.C. lives in a constant state of wanderlust, but has only been on 2 continents. Content Rules is not C.C.'s first published work. Years ago he was published in a poetry anthology. C.C.'s status as a "good guy" started when he was younger by becoming a proud Eagle Scout. There is a catch to our version of the game. You have to attend this Thursday's event to find out the answer! A little bit about … [Read more...]

Amber Naslund Promises to Bring Down the House

Have you heard, Amber Naslund (aka @ambercadabra), will be in Dallas in November?! November 18th to be exact. If for some off chance you don't know who Amber is (are you sure you're at the right place?) her twitter sized bio tells us that she's VP of Social Strategy for Radian6. Constructive heretic. Pragmatist. Musician. Intellectual adventurer. Bibliophile. Word nerd. If that's not enough information for you, she has a more in-depth bio here. I am excited to hear Amber because a) she's awesome AND b) a little birdie told me (ok her blog) that, because of our dear friend Scott Stratten, Amber is pulling out all the stops in her speaking gigs these days. In fact, here's a promise from Amber (except from How Scott Stratten Kicked My … [Read more...]

If you haven't already seen the movie trailer, or just want to watch it again, here it be: As with each of our events the club is honored to have a fabulous sponsor (and no I'm not just saying that because I'm the Dallas Community Manager for Bizzy).
