Lawyer Blurbs: Razor Blades, Rock Bands and TV Shows
• If you're thinking about buying the hugely popular blog, How Appealing, be prepared to pay a pretty penny. According to Howard Bashman, "it would take a lot more than one million dollars to cause me to walk away from this [How Appealing] blog. Bashman made the comment in a post describing his recent audition for the television show, "So You Want to Be A Millionaire." [H/T ABA Journal.]
• Lawyers rock... really! In fact, here in Washington D.C., ten law firm bands (with names like Beats Workin and "de profundis") will compete in a Battle of the Bands to raise money for the D.C. homeless. [Source: Reading Express.com.]
• Was Perkins Coie trying to be cutting-edge with this unusual piece of law firm swag? It's an emergency flashlight/beacon to stash in your car; it comes complete with a razor blade, to cut away your seat belt if you've had an accident and are hanging upside down. It's a novel idea, but seems to me that giving away razor blades, which can easily be used for dangerous or malicious purposes, may not be the sharpest PR idea for a law firm.
