Switching Scenes: Or, Will Fort Worth's Loss Turn Into Dallas's Gain?

Categories: Biz

Came across this interesting item on the Interwebs today: CRM Studios is being forced to move out of its longtime home on the downtown Fort Worth RadioShack Corporation campus. Which is a very big deal, even if you've never heard of CRM. Because, see, years ago it was RadioShack's in-house ad agency -- among the largest of its kind anywhere in the world. "It was built to save RadioShack tons of money," says CRM's chief marketing officer, Tom Kirkhart, who confirms the anonymous posting. ("Reads like it was written by a competitor," he says, laughing.)

And the studio did make money for RadioShack, for a long, long time. Then, a few years ago, it moved across the complex, expanded into a 48,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art production facility and morphed into CRM, which, among many other things, provides all of the in-house programming for the likes of GameStop and generates some $8 million in revenue annually. But three years after the studio was showcased in Broadcast Engineering, CRM's being kicked out to make room for a Tarrant County College District medical lab. In June, the TCCD bought the RadioShack complex for $238 million -- in cash -- and, following an $80-million redo, intends to open it as a college campus come September 2009. So CRM gets the boot. But to where? Dallas, maybe?

Maybe. It'd make sense, as Kirkhart says CRM ideally will find a more "centralized" location. "But we just don't know yet," Kirkhart says. "We're working on moving out at this point. We're still trying to sort out where to go. And it's sad. It's state-of-the-art. It doesn't get any bigger in terms of wow. And they're gong to come in and gut it and turn it into a medical lab. They bought the whole campus, and we're on it, so, ya know, there ain't much squatter's rights at thar tpoint. You can bitch all day, but you still gotta move.

"The sad part is, I don't think TCCD understands what they have," he continues. "They're looking at this as a shell they can put labs in, but they don't understand this is a state-of-the-art facility with duel floating-slab floors, soundproofing, 11 edit bays that are, if anything, overbuilt. There's nothing like this in the country, certainly not this part of the country, and they're going to tear it down after three years, when it's all brand-new stuff."

Then again, Fort Worth's loss might wind up Dallas's (or Las Colinas's) gain -- should CRM find a home here. One thing's for certain, insists Kirkhart: "We're not dead, not by a long shot." --Robert Wilonsky

In 2003 Avner Samuel and his wife Celeste opened Aurora, their opulent eatery on Oaklawn in 2003, and a lot of people thought they were nuts. Well, they may be nuts, but they are Dallas nuts in a good way and I, for one, am happy that Avner has always been a chef to push the dining envelope in Dallas.

The lease on the Aurora space is up at the end of the year and the Samuels had to make a hard decision. �Aurora was what I wanted to do for a long time,� says Avner. �I don�t have 20 floors of hotel rooms on top of me. I don�t ever want to compromise what I cook. I knew Aurora would not be for everybody.�

After a lot of �soul searching,� the couple has decided to close Aurora on July 31. �We have all been fighting this economy and I am tired,� says Avner. �I am emotionally and physically drained. I need some time off.�

�We have a hard core of 80 couples who support us,� says Celeste. �We threw a thank you party for them on Saturday night. This is really emotional for me.�

Will that be the end of Avner�s reign in Dallas? �Oh, no. I have one more good one left in me,� says Avner. �I am going to stay in Dallas and create something that will appeal to all of Dallas. I don�t know what it is yet�I seriously don�t�but it has to be something that will make me happy.�

They may stay in their location or move�they haven�t made any future decisions other than to close Aurora and take a month to re-energize and create. �I need to get that fire burning again,� says Avner. �I can�t stay around the house too long. Celeste will kick me out.�

If you have a gift certificate, use before July 31. Call 214-528-9400. Oh, and Dishers stay close. We just might need to have a party. How about a Last Supper at Aurora? Who�s in?

Penny Auction Strategy Tip #1My first penny auctions' strategy tip is extremely simple. Looking at any penny auction websites you will see how many people so not follow this easy rule and waste their $.

Do not bid before the last 10 second of the auction.

Remember, with penny auctions you want to outbid your opponent with the fewest bids possible.

Always keep your calm. If people want to bid in the last minute, 2 minutes, 10 minutes or whatever let them do it. May sites have automatic bidding systems that bid in the last 10-20 seconds. If someone has an auto bidder set it the price range you are at, it will fire anyway.

Jesus Christ, can you at least update the employee section? You have at least one person online who is not there anymore. You also need to add an editor and Steve's new slave. Is your head permanently lodged in your ass? What kind of BS do you feed Rand Falbaum every meeting to ensure another month of employment there? Maybe Rand doesn't give a shit. Maybe he likes losing money. You're a fraud, a doormat, and a totally incompetent moron. Why don't you update SOMETHING on the web site? I learn more about what's going on with CRM via Facebook posts from CRM employees than the old, outdated STALE news on CRM's web site! Good grief! Get a clue!

Compression faucet repairsIf a compression faucet leaks from the handle, tighten the packing nut or replace the packing, which may be a washer, an O-ring, or twine wound around the compression stem. If water drips from the spout, you�ll need to replace a washer or replace a corroded valve seat. Turn off the shutoff valve for that fixture, take off the faucet handle, remove the stem, and replace the worn part with one that is the same size. While you're at it, take this opportunity to lubricate the threads of the stem with silicone grease. If you have these kinds of faucets, it pays to have on hand an inexpensive faucet repair kit, which is essentially a little box of assorted washers and O-rings.

Disc faucet repairsDisc faucets leak when the inlet and outlet seals wear out or when sediment builds up in the faucet inlets. Disc assemblies don�t often wear out, but sometimes the inlet and outlet seals fail. Turn off the shutoff valve for the fixture and replace the worn seals with duplicates of the original ones. Be sure to realign the seals on the bottom of the cartridge with the holes in the faucet.

Cartridge faucet repairsCartridge faucets leak when the O-ring cushioning the cartridge stem wears out or breaks. When they drip it might mean the cartridge needs replacing. You can buy replacements at plumbing supply retailers, major home improvement centers, and some hardware stores. In some cases, they may need to be special ordered. Be sure the replacement matches the original.

Ball faucet repairsBall faucets such as those made by Delta and Price Pfister drip when the inlet seals wear out and leak when the O-rings wear out or break. If the handle leaks, tighten the adjusting ring after lifting the handle off the assembly. If the handle continues to leak, replace the cap; if the spout drips, the inlet seals and springs or the ball need replacing.

General faucet repair tipsAt the first sign of a drip, don�t torque down on a faucet in an effort to stop the drip�in most cases this will just damage the faucet. Instead, replace the washers or seals that are failing to seal off the faucet�s flow. If you have an older faucet that is chronically leaky, consider replacing it with a new, high-quality model

Soupy Sales was an American pie-throwing comedian, born in 1926 in North Carolina. After a few short-lived TV shows, in 1953 he started Lunch with Soupy Sales, which became The Soupy Sales Show, shown on ABC after 1959. It was a children's program with significant adult viewership whose high point was Sales receiving a shaving-cream pie in the face. At some point Frank Sinatra asked to be victimized, and soon all manner of celebrities were scheduling guest appearances to achieve rapid dignity loss by means of pie. Sales became known almost exclusively for that act, a typecast which both enhanced and damaged his career. Sales claims to have thrown 19,000 pies and received 25,000 over a span of more than forty years. His show faded with the rise of cartoons, though it was revived briefly in 1978 as The New Soupy Sales Show. In later years he was a panelist on What's My Line?, hosted a WNBC radio show, appeared at clubs into his 70s, and continued to perfect the fine art of pie throwing. He died from cancer in 2009 at a hospital in the Bronx, also suffering other undisclosed illnesses.

You know what, jackass? You still have not updated the employee section. You've added an editor, but he is not on the site, and one graphics guru is gone, yet he is still listed as being there (can you spell "lawsuit"?) Exactly what do you do all day? You would agree that the website is the face of the studio for those who cannot visit it physically, yes? So, that is a responsibility of MARKETING. Oh, and fix your endless copy errors. Jesus Christ. You're a buffoon on a massive scale. Why does Rand Falbaum still employ you? Seriously.

So many steps are involved in the preparation of a really splendid lobster Thermidor, no wonder it costs a fortune in any restaurant! But it is not a particularly difficult dish to execute, and everything may be prepared in advance and heated up just before serving. This is an especially attractive recipe for lobster Thermidor because the meat is stirred in hot butter before it is sauced, and turns a rosy red. Buy lobsters weighing a good 2 pounds each, so the shells will be large enough to hold the filling.

A Note on Dealing with Live Lobsters: If you object to steaming or splitting a live lobster, it may be killed almost instantly just before cooking if you plunge the point of a knife into the head between the eyes, or sever the spinal cord by making a small incision in the back of the shell at the juncture of the chest and the tail.

Ingredients:Serves 6

Kitchen Supplies:

* Covered, enameled or stainless steel kettle with tight-fitting cover * Covered, enameled or stainless steel saucepan * enameled or 4-cup stainless steel saucepan * 1/2-quart enameled or stainless steel saucepan * Wooden spoon * Wire whip * 3-quart mixing bowl * 12-inch enameled or stainless steel skillet * Shallow roasting pan or fireproof serving platter

Steaming the Lobster:

* 3 cups dry white wine or 2 cups dry white vermouth * 2 cups water * 1 large onion , thinly sliced * 1 medium carrot , thinly sliced * 1 stalk celery , thinly sliced * 6 sprigs parsley * 1 bay leaf * 1/4 tsp. thyme * 6 peppercorns * 1 Tbsp. fresh or dried tarragon * 3 live lobsters , 2 pounds each * 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms * 1 Tbsp. butter * 1 tsp. lemon juice * 1/4 tsp. salt

Sauce:

* 5 Tbsp. butter * 6 Tbsp. flour * 1 Tbsp. cream * 1 Tbsp. dry mustard * 2 egg yolks * 1/2 cup whipping cream * 4 to 6 Tbsp. more whipping cream * Pinch cayenne pepper

Saut� Lobster Meat:

* 4 Tbsp. butter * 1/3 cup cognac

Final Assembly:

* 1/2 cup grated Parmesan or Swiss cheese * 2 Tbsp. butter , cut into bits

Steaming the lobsters: Simmer wine, water, vegetables, herbs, and seasonings in the kettle for 15 minutes. Then bring to a rollingboil and add the live lobsters. Cover and boil for about 20 minutes. The lobsters are done when they are bright red and the long head-feelers can be pulled from the sockets fairly easily.

While the lobsters are steaming, stew the mushrooms slowly in the covered saucepan with the butter, lemon juice, and salt for 10 minutes.

The sauce: When the lobsters are done, remove them from the kettle. Pour the mushroom cooking juices into the lobster steaming juices in the kettle and boil down rapidly until liquid has reduced to about 2 1/4 cups. Strain into the 4-cup enameled or stainless steel saucepan and bring to the simmer.

Cook the butter and flour slowly together in the 1 1/2-quart saucepan for 2 minutes without browning. Off heat, beat in the simmering lobster-cooking liquid. Boil, stirring, for 1 minute. Set aside. Film top of sauce with the cream.

Split the lobsters in half lengthwise, keeping the shell halves intact. Discard sand sacks in the heads, and the intestinal tubes. Rub lobster coral and green matter through a fine sieve into the mixing bowl, and blend into it the mustard, egg yolks, cream, and pepper. Beat the sauce into this mixture by driblets.

Return the sauce to the pan, and stirring with a wooden spoon, bring it to the boil and boil slowly for 2 minutes. Thin out with tablespoons of cream. Sauce should be thick enough to coat a spoon fairly heavily. Taste carefully for seasoning. Set aside, top filmed with a spoonful of cream.

Saut�g the lobster meat: Remove the meat from the lobster tails and claws, and cut it into 3/8-inch cubes. Set the skillet with the butter over moderate heat. When the butter foam begins to subside, stir in the lobster meat and saut�stirring slowly, for about 5 minutes until the meat has turned a rosy color. Pour in the cognac and boil for a minute or two, shaking the skillet, until the liquid has reduced by half.

Final assembly: Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Fold the cooked mushrooms and two thirds of the sauce into the skillet with the lobster meat. Arrange the split lobster shells in the roasting pan. Heap the lobster mixture into the shells; cover with the remaining sauce. Sprinkle with cheese and dot with butter. The recipe may be prepared ahead up to this point and refrigerated.

Place in upper third of 425-degree oven for 10 to 15 minutes, until lobster is bubbling and the top of the sauce is nicely browned. Serve immediately on a platter or serving plates.

Preparation:Heat oven to 300�. Sprinkle grill seasoning or salt and pepper all over the roast.

In a large Dutch oven or oven safe pot over medium-high heat, heat the oil. Sear the roast on all sides until browned, about 2 minutes on each side. Remove the roast to a plate and set aside.

Saute the bacon until almost crisp. Remove the bacon to paper towels to drain. Remove and discard all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings. Add chopped onion and celery to the drippings and cook until just softened. Add the garlic and carrots and saute for 1 minute. Stir in tomato paste, wine, and chicken broth. Put the roast and bacon back in the pot and add the bay leaves, rosemary, and pearl onions. Bring back to a simmer. Cover tightly and bake for 3 hours, turning the roast after 2 hours.

Strain juices from the roast and pour the juices into a saucepan. Cover the roast and vegetables and keep warm.

Put the saucepan with strained juices over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 5 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper, as needed. Slice the roast and serve with the vegetables and juices.Serves 6.

Well, this will be my last post ever. I have to say, it's been a fun 12+ months tormenting these idiots at CRM Studios (and by idiots, I mean only two).Here you have a marketing genius who hasn't revamped the website in over a year and a half (except for employee adds/deletes - the emphasis on DELETES). No new newsletter since summer 2008, no correction on the font errors within the archived press releases your Twitter and Facebook; your CRM Studios Twitter updates are over a month old - exactly what do you do in the area of marketing?

Goodbye, and good riddance. Your karma is coming. When you're begging for work, I will not serve as a reference - not that you're THAT STUPID. For the other folks there (non-management), I'll happily spew accolades for you. Get out while you can.

I think they're OK. Their website IS up, by the way. You must have typed www.crmstudios.tv, which does not work, but crmstudios.tv does. This is unfortunate, because whoever from CRM posted this: http://directory.leadmaverick.... well, they have all the hyperlinks to their website with the www prefix, which goes nowhere, plus the "posted by" hyperlink at the very top is REALLY jacked up, with double http prefixes. Addys and Tellys are written as possessives, and in one section, the hyperlink to one of their top clients is spelled Gamestop, not GameStop. Luckily, it's not like that later on in their marketing piece.

Nice that they're back online. The rest of the demos I hadn't seen yet look pretty decent.

While they were offline, it's too bad they didn't fix the items that the other anonymous poster pointed out, like the cryptic "Electrical (from CRM????)" bullet point, the confusion on which locations have editing, and the odd characters in the text for the press releases. Just looks shoddy and gives an impression, albeit a false one, that they don't have an eye for detail.

I went to the CRM website almost a couple months ago, just before the holidays kicked off. Pretty good stuff there as far as demos go, but I researched them a bit more because of some confusion I had after exploring more of their website. I just found this blog three search pages into Google and I hope someone can help me.

If anyone at CRM is reading this, I�m pricing out a project for a stage rental and some post, but I'm confused as to what the heck some of the information on CRM Studios' site is saying. If any of the posters can help me, please do. I don't want to call CRM and ask questions that may sound stupid - that would be an awkward phone call, so I'd like to get this clarified before calling.

Under the tab, Production and Stages, for stage A, I see a bullet point item that reads, "Electrical (from CRM????)" What does that mean? Is CRM Studios in talks with Studios of Las Colinas about who's supplying the power? If it's Studios of Las Colinas, will I be paying a double markup on power (Las Colinas markup, plus CRM's markup of Las Colinas's markup)? Please explain.

Regarding my post needs, I'll need to have post done in Dallas, but one bullet line under the Post Production tab reads, "Editing available in Fort Worth & Shreveport", and the last one reads, "Editing available in Dallas, Shreveport and Fort Worth locations." Is it two locations or three, and more importantly, is one of those locations in Dallas?

There are also a lot of lines that contain odd characters in your hyperlinks to the press releases and gibberish in the press releases themselves, under the Resources tab. Not the red tabs in the upper 1/3 of the page, but at the very top, within "About CRM". Those items don't relate to my bid, but I thought you all should know.

I started looking at different production companies before the holidays started, so this stuff has been up for well over a month now. My client looks to be starting the project around Q2. If someone can please address my questions as soon as you read this... Thank you.

Fort Worth location in the works! More information coming soon!

Wait a minute, weren't they IN Fort Worth to begin with? Why didn't they have a satellite location ready to go in FW once they moved out to Las Colinas? It comes off looking like they bailed on FW to concentrate on Las Colinas. OK, bye, Fort Worth, we'll get back to you...

Brilliant "strategy".

Who the hell wrote that press release? Why even mention negatives like "lost its lease"?

"Throughout the move, CRM Studios will continue to maintain the highest levels of service..." Why is that necessary to be in there? It's almost like they're addressing doubt that clients may have about their transition. Shouldn't it be automatically assumed that everything will go smoothly?

Is "Website" supposed to be capitalized?
