RedBall Remedies (RRx) surface as Perschke's Globe hits the Streets of Chicago. Day #7 unfolds, America.

Chicago, IL USA: "If the Weather cooperates, anything is possible." Although that wasn't a Segmented Quote in the Annals of Modern Philosophies, it definitely holds true for everything that happens. It holds true also for the Studies on SDD: Seasonal Deficit Disorders. When enough Sun is not present for Creatures, whether they walk on 2 feet; 4 paws; are furry, feathered or scaled, the Effects are negatively felt.

After 3.5 Days of tumultuous Weather, Chicago has now returned to a glorious State with blue skies as far as the naked eye can see, low humidity and favorable temperatures . And, added to that Landscape will be the long awaited:

Damen & North Avenue UnVeiling of the RedBall Project,

Kurt Perschke's Brainstorm that has taken 'Sweet Home Chicago' by storm...regardless of the last-past weeekend's Antixx.

Catch (The Ball) if you can in this trendy, upscale N'Hood which to those Individuals who don't know the geography of Chicago is:

1600 North & 2000 West.

THE STROLL: It's drivable; it's bike-able; it's a long-walk; a shorter roller-blading 'over' and it's right on the North Av. CTA #72 Bus Route. In a nutshell: There's no reason why you can't 'be there.' Enculturate yourself.

As I think of the last few days when Mother Nature was not too kind to Chicagoans and Kurt's Project had to be called off due to excessive Rain & Flooding, an Idea enfolded which I will share with you next...for more national and international RedBall Events. That is:

Hold the Event (The Inflation & Deflation) inside a local Target (who is the Sponsor). What would or could be a better eye catcher than to stroll into the Store (in your area) and found blatantly in the middle of one of your favorite aisles is the 15 foot - 250 lb. Ball. It certainly would make People stop.

Kurt & his Crew would have a built-in 'Crowd' and the usual Interaction could and would happen. As a matter of fact, I would guess that for those who do not have a Cell-Phone with the Camera attachment, more Cameras would be sold (@ Target) that Day than at any given time in Target History.

And you read that Idea here first on KOOPERSMITHin, The Blog that puts the Pop into Pop Culture, whether (or weather) it calls for it or not!

ASK, ADRIENNE SIOUX KOOPERSMITH, a long-time Chicago Resident, emitted an extremely enthusiastic response for Cameraman/Director of Photography/Filmmaker, TONY GADDIS of St. Louis, Missouri who asked her to say a few words about her initial Reaction to Kurt Perschke’s Redball Project that was stationed in front of the Restaurant called Wishbone-on-Washington (merely a stone’s throw from Harpo Studio – Home of the Oprah Winfrey Show) on Friday, September 5, 2008. Being an Artist, Writer, Lifestyle Conceptualist and hailed as: ‘America’s Premier Eventologist’ in her own ‘Rite of Passage’ as well as an ardent Fan for all Things RED, one of the 3 Primary Colors of the Universe, ADRIENNE spoke to TONY at length about what she personally felt KP’s Contribution to The World of Sculpture was and what The Sculpture symbolized in its month-long stay in Chicago, the 3rd largest Marketplace in the USA. This was (after all) her 2ND of 15 Visits (having sadly missed its First at the Millennium Park) she would make TO THE BALL (as she termed the EVENT) and a RED-imentary Way to get out for The Month and Mingle.

Seeing and charting The Pulse and Reaction of others as they stopped, stared and encircled THE BALL (that measures 15 feet high) was an Adventure in Human Nature. Promoting Popular Culture for nearly 30 years via her PRAM (Public Relations/Advertising/Marketing) Company, KOOPERSMITH’s GLOBAL COMMUNICATIONS, ASK knew exactly what Manhattan Sculptor, Kurt Perschke was aiming to do with his monstrously BIG RED RUBBER BALL.

Later, after they got to know each other, ADRIENNE joined the Team by becoming their official Daily Blogger contributing 22 BLOGS (equating to 24,656 Words) on her Forbes’ hailed BLOG called: KOOPERSMITHIN’ ® that appeared in September – solely devoted to THE REDBALL PROJECT.

HOW’D HE DO THAT? Kurt garnered the Assistance of one of the top 3 greatest Retail Giants in the Northern Hemisphere that coincidentally was RED-dy to help. Most of the General Population was not aware that Target would soon be opening up 36 new Stores on October 14TH in 21 States, after a near Total Collapse of the American as well as Global Meltdown (in October, 2008) -- within just a month. Seeing a Big RedBall appear out of nowhere instantly made a Person smile and wonder…why or why not.

‘Giving Back’ to The Community (in an otherwise greedy, ‘take-it-all’ World) ASK surmised was an incredible Marketing Strategy aimed towards The People to show, overall, and on a Grand Scale that even when Times are slim and sparse, there is Solidarity at work highlighted by a Flaming Red Event, all within The Bounce of a Ball. Being an Attention-Getter, once a Person’s Attention is within reach and secured, any Conversation and Dialogue can ensue and hopefully, it will be beneficial to both participating Parties.

For those viewing The Reel found online at:


ASK also promotes GORF (the 24.5” plush TOY FROG with the infectious 11” Smile) as ‘Chicago’s First Green Mascot’ & ‘The Icon of the Green Movement’ (who coincidentally has two big Red Eyeballs or Orbs). She is holding him during her Commentary that Filmmaker, TONY GADDIS was shooting at The Wishbone Restaurant. GORF continuously accompanied ADRIENNE as she attended each RedBall Event and used as a Photographic Prop during the entire Duration of the REDBALL PROJECT as the Parallel of how both REDBALL & GORF ran along similar parallels and makes an Artistic Statement in and of itself.

QUOTING CLARENCE: Clarence Lipideau (after seeing the Video believes Tony’s Taped Commentary was): “The most positive Statement Target could have received from a Civilian. No script or state-of-the-art New York City Ad Firm could have placed those poignant Words into Koopersmith’s Mouth. Her Testimonial is definitely worth its Weight in ‘Gold’ or should we say Red Rubies to keep with the Theme. When I saw Adrienne’s Segment, it was so spontaneous, fresh, upbeat, real and true, it inspired me to exude my Appreciation for the Content of the Moment.”

CONCLUDING REMARKS: Target Corporation, the #2 Discount Chain Store Retailer is not like Wall Street Financiers in the sense that it houses unscrupulous Overlords and Swindlers. “Every Man” (Woman & Child) is Target’s Bed-and-Butter. Their Corporate Mission is to treat People the Way ‘The People’ deserve to be treated, with Respect, Dignity and Provisions or Opportunities to score great Products, super(b) Deals as well as knowing and feeling (deep down) that when their Customer returns home, that Trip is with Money in their Pocket(s). Scalping or Robbing is not in their Vocabulary or Business Plans. To Koopersmith, this is the Continuation of ‘The American Dream’ which is quickly dissolving in too many People’s Lives.

“Target puts the FUN and FUNDS (back) into Shopping.”
