The First Ultimate David Letterman Article

david letterman scholarship tom gulley
Well, the big announcement came down last week and everyone’s still getting used to the idea. David Letterman’s closing down the circus in 2015.

So like most people across this great big beautiful land of ours, you’re probably asking yourself the crucial, intruguing question about this milestone titanic shift in the entertainment landscape:

“How will all this affect Tom Gulley?”

As the first recipient of the David Letterman Scholarship--I, too, have been wrestling with this question since the stomach-churning, world-shattering annoucement that Dave would no longer be doing his hugely successful show. Which was also the simultaneous moment of realization that my three decade long coat-tail ride was nearing an abrupt end.

But don’t worry. I’ll be OK. I just have a few things to get over.

WAY less undeserved instant notoriety. Don’t know if you’ve ever spent 30 years getting a major boost at parties and group gatherings from being associated with a famous entertainer, but if you ever get the chance you should do it. It’s a rush. Even the most successful insurance salesman, plumbing supply rep, or blind proctologist at the party will fall by the wayside after a Dave mention.

No more trips to NYC to see the show. Actually, I’ve only been to the show once. Way back in ’86. And I LIVED 45 minutes away from the Ed Sullivan Theater for a year. But the notion that I could rip myself away from marathons of The Rifleman and Due South to visit the show and impress my girlfriend du jour was always comforting in a procrastinatory way.

Having to say “David Letterman. He was a talk show host” to the help in whatever nursing home I end up in. Increasingly, the younger and less aware population in this country has lost touch with the awesomeness of Mr. Dave Letterman. It’s like watching Wilt Chamberlain in his last game. He’s still the best ever, but because he’s been doing it forever and he was so incredible at the start, his brilliance and longevity start to seem blasé to some in the World Of Snark circa 2014. I’m sure I’ll have to explain this to someone feeding me oatmeal in the 2030’s.

No more invitations to party with the first Paul Shaffer Scholarship winner. Little known fact: All the first scholarship winners of famous entertainers have a secret society. The first Bruce Willis, Huey Lewis, Madonna, Katie Couric, and Howie Mandel scholarship winners and I are not known as The Brat Pack Lite any more, but we still manage to get together and talk about how far short of our benefactors’ accomplishments we’ve all fallen.

Not being able to watch my idol & benefactor any damn night of the week. I imagine that, inside the home of the guy who owns the company that makes the finest caviar in the known world, they don’t have caviar very often. Kinda how I view the Letterman show. Took it for granted. Now, I only got a year’s more caviar there in the fridge Monday thru Friday any time I please. And, I’m sorry, Jimmy Fallon ain’t caviar. He’s more of a really good Hot Pocket.

Very little time left to become famous enough to be ON Letterman. (And forget any chances of getting on the writing staff because I didn’t go to Harvard.) OK, I realize I could do something actually worthy of being on Letterman. I could be the subject of an internet meme, or I could marry Julia Roberts, or I could learn to make shadow puppets of Abe Lincoln with my tongue. But we all know Thomas Gulley miraculously being endowed with the skills to achieve those uberlofty heights is a big laugh. A big, sooty, smoky, sarcastic laugh from your aunt who inhales Camels and talks like she's gargling a loogey. So, unless there’s a “March Of The Letterman Scholars” on The Late Show, it’s kinda moot.

Becoming more of a relic at Ball State University. Ever been to a small town when they roll out the oldest surviving veteran of WWII? Yeah, that’s how I feel sometimes when I return to the Harvard Of The Midwest. I have socks older than those kids.

There’ll be articles to follow on all the aspects of The Letterman Thing. After all, I’ve got a year or so. Which doesn’t sound that great considering it took me 30 years to graduate from college.

Tom Gulley (recipient of the David Letterman Scholarship) is an award-winning writer, broadcaster, and journalist who regularly creates brilliant communications for some of the world’s biggest companies. Especially the ones you admire. He’s available for writing, creative strategy, digital communications, talk show hosting, voice talent work, kid’s birthday parties, and free 24-hour Martinizing. And his name never fails to get a big laugh when mentioned in small groups at parties.

The 5 Life-Saving Steps To A LinkedIn Post That Will Save The Universe, Make You Better At Sex, And Keep Friends From Being Murdered Article

The 5 Life-Saving Steps To A LinkedIn Post That Will Save The Universe, Make You Better At Sex, And Keep Friends From Being Murdered Article
We’ve all seen them. We’ve all clicked on them. Those pontificate articles proffered forth from alleged uberexperts. Served up in your LinkedIn feed from some epicenter of “outsmarting the game” business utopia.

Don’t you wish YOU could write the Ultimate LinkedIn Article? Well, you’re in luck. Follow these five simple rules and you, too, could be wearing trendy black square-framed glasses in your profile picture:

1. Inflammatory, Misleading, Pandering, Overpromise Of A Headline. Kind of like the one above this article. “Why Profit Will Kill Your CEO” or “Is Death Lurking In Your Company Bathroom?” or “Turn Your Copier Into A Time Machine & Out Future The Competition” or “Get A $50,000 Raise Using Secrets Of The Post-It In 2 Easy Steps” are good examples. Business, schmizness! Follow the National Enquirer’s lead in headline generation!

2. Quirky, Hybridized, Meaningless Company Name. Never be an expert from somewhere like General Motors or Coca-Cola or Apple. No. ALWAYS be from a company with a name like Braingenuity. Or IdeaCandy. Or BikiniRocket. Or SwizzleThink. (Apologies if any of these are actual names of companies.) Basically, just take the words Rocket, Smart, Brains, Think and mix them up like refrigerator magnets. The name of your company should be like the name of a rock band you see in the trendy area of downtown. You know, where they spent three years on the name of the band and three minutes on each of the songs? Whenever possible, make it impossible to understand what business you are in.

3. Proudly Espouse The Exact Opposite Of Common Sense. This sometimes ties back into the headline. “Why You Should Burn Your Home To The Ground” can’t just be paid off with how to buy matches. One must proudly and defiantly espouse their “zig when they zag” thinking which was espoused for the sole, single, and solitary purpose of looking insightful and visionary. And getting LinkedIn article clicks. So, after writing “Why You Should Have An Affair With Your Boss’s Wife On His Desk” then just go admire yourself in the mirror for being able to turn the least applicable headline into a 180 degree rationalization for some benign common sense practice already in use for centuries like “Disagreements can actually lead to a discussion which improves understanding.”

4. Self-Glorifying Totally Unbelievable Anecdote. Name no names. Make murky, vague references to an industry or icon. Pump up your own involvement. Then, lavishly decorate your thin framework of a personal anecdote with totally unbelievable interactions and observations. I recall giving this same advice when I was working for a large cable TV conglomerate. The head of sales came to me with a request after I had increased licensing profits by over a thousand percent in just one year. “Wow. How did you manage that? We had 1000 people working on it day and night.” Smiling, I patted him on the shoulder and said, “Chum, all you needed was a more clearly visible price tag.” There he stood, mouth agape at my simple but powerful genius. Then I was promoted to Assistant Master Of The Universe…

5. End With Pollyannaesque “Belief In Self” Platitude. Bootstraps. Dreams come true. It’s OK to lose—just don’t lose to your own fears. Your attitude makes for accomplishments of magnitude. Inch by inch is a cinch. There are a billion of these out there. Just pick the one that appeals to you most. Because today is a gift, that’s why it’s called “the present.”

It’s not hard to write the Universal LinkedIn Article. All you need are these simple steps to create a veneer of pseudo-intellectual business banter and claptrap that will position you as a demi-god amongst those who worship business banter and claptrap.

You’ll find all the claptrap worshippers at a big motivational seminar. Or on your contacts list.

Tom Gulley is an award-winning writer and journalist who regularly creates brilliant communications for some of the world’s biggest companies. Especially the ones you admire. He’s available for writing, creative strategy, digital communications, talk show hosting, voice talent work, kid’s birthday parties, and free 24-hour Martinizing. And his name never fails to get a big laugh when mentioned in small groups at parties.
