ts247 is ending on Groundhog Day (Monday Feb 2nd.)! I have been broadcasting my life 24/7 since election day and have amassed over 700 clips of eviction notices, death threats, romances, dance parties, concerts, shootings, drug deals, rappers, road trips, cooking lessons, house fires, mistakes, family, friends, and everything in between.
Please tune in Monday the 2nd at the very least to catch the goodbye festivities. I will be going off air at midnight on the 2nd. It’s been a lot of fun and I will announce my next project very soon!
Hitting the Marc
Funnyman Marc Horowitz catches air to create art for ailing banks

Founding an “anonymous semi-nudist” colony. Burying a town’s problems. For self-described social crusader and one-man think tank Marc Horowitz, such antics are all in a day’s work. The 30-year-old art-school dropout recently performed those and other stunts for his Crackle.com “Signature Series”—videos that document a cross-country road trip Horowitz plotted by autographing a U.S. map and letting the lines of his signature determine the route. The mission? To “improve” 19 towns along the way. “I’m riding this line between art and comedy-entertainment, he says.
Horowitz first won fame in 2004, after a nationwide tour of dinners with strangers. While working as a photo assistant, he furtively wrote “Dinner w/ Marc” and his phone number on a whiteboard that would appear in a Crate & Barrel catalog; upon publication, he received 30,000 invites, appeared on the Today show, and even earned a spot as one of People’s 50 “Most Eligible Bachelors.”
When I met him at his Los Angeles flat, he had just finished taping a talk show in his living room with $15 VHS cameras. Similar shows may soon see air time: Repped by Ryan Seacrest’s agent, Horowitz is pitching a “meta, hidden-camera program” and a travel series in which he’ll “put unknown town’s on the map” by founding something in each one—say, a car-alarm hall of fame.
In the meantime, Horowitz aims to remedy America’s financial woes with his “Recessionator,” a paint-spraying contraption he uses to create art—a fail-proof investment—for belly-up banks. “I’m not Seacrest, and I’m not Damien Hirst,” he says. “I’m just trying to do my thing.”

I need a logo for my new project, talkshow247.com If you go here – http://www.crowdspring.com/projects/graphic_design/logo/logo_for_talkshow247 – sign up and submit your design, it just may get chosen, and you’ll get $ 450.
Alot of the submitted logos so far seem either too "wacky" or too corporate. I think it should be a hand drawn deal, organic like the show. Let me know if you have any questions and for more info visit http://is.gd/5DNK .
Thanks and I look forward to seeing your designs. The deadline is tomorrow evening, so get crackin!
