Jesus Åsk...
It can't be that time again can it?
Obviously I can't nominate myself, do I'll have to nominate you... But I need some UberGeek out there to show me how I can vote for myself a million times without being caught. Someone has to know. A free signed copy of MadScam (why do you think it's called "Scam" for Christs sake?) to the first correct answer.
Oh, One other thing. Any blog that doesn't do at least one post every day should be disqualified... Are you listening Ernie?
Oh... One other, other thing... No fucking magazines... It's for BLOGS... OK... Not Fast Company, or any of that shit which just reprints stuff that's been in the magazine sitting in the fucking dentist's reception for a year.
If I think of anything else, I'll get back to you... Cocktail time.

Kudos to Robblink for having a DALEK as his graphicomnitoconwhatsit... Whatever. But I do love the really cheesy japaneese ads with the blonde guys in purple suits... aka "Lost in Translation"... Having done a couple of spots over there I can appreciate Bill Murray's bemusement dealing with the Japanese director... But What the fuck do we know. I am sure that they get just as many giggles out of most of the shit we produce.

Wow
I just went to their Web site and checked out their "Core Team." Jesus, these guys look like a bunch of fucking axe murderers. And what the hell is that guy David Steele's hair all about? Still what can you expect from a guy who goes on record as "loving the color orange!" They also say they do shit for a grand. They ain't gonna get rich at that rate!

I don't know where he gets the time... Still, I used to say that about Dabitch... Personally, drugs, booze and the occasional "Blue Rush" keeps me going... Gotta be careful at airports though. Happy First Bill. Surprised you didn't win the "Marketing Sherpa" award. I mean that was as bent as a sixpenny watch. I'll be posting about it shortly... Fucking scam!!! Sorry, didn't mean to ruin your B'day!

Hey... It's not a "Rip-Off" It's an "Homage"... Much classier in French. But as Zippy the Pin-Head would say "It's Yogi-Vue all over again!" At least it ran, (I assume) unlike half the shit that wins awards these days. Either that or they're English language ads for Cambodian Tattoo parlors which appeared once in Lurtzers Fucking Archive Rip-Off! Whew, I feel better now I've got that off my chest!

What a crock of shit. They even have a special Web site that spells it out in a few thousand words. I love the bit were he talks about agencies being too interested in things other than advertising. He and his brother started all that shit when they bought a ton of non-advertising companies while they were flying around on the concorde and running Saatchi into the ground. You can read more of my piss and vinegar on AdScam.

There is only one "ManLaw"
Real men drink real beer... Not Nuns piss.
Miller Lite - Bud Light - Silver Bullets...
Doesn't anyone know that these are really awful beers to begin with... Bud, Miller, Coors, etc, that the brewer then adds water to? They use these in British pubs to wash the urinals with, then they re-bottle them and ship them to the US.
CP+B is well on the way to proving Jay's imortal words... "I want to see how big we can get before we get bad!"
Bring back the lesbians wrestling in wet concrete, that's a fucking ManLaw spot... I'll wait for the screams on AdScam!!!

Well, DaBitch asked me to have a look at the Swedish guerilla mob thing, and all I can say is Yes

Oooops... Just noticed that the call for entries for an Italian awards show is in English... Oh, I know, that way it'll get to run in Archive magazine along with all the other English language ads from Brazil, China, Swaziland and Neptune!

Never forget... In the ad biz... It's called an "Homage." Much classier in French than "Rip-Off."
