Things That Have Been Bothering Me Lately
The new Media Arts Festival awards show. Award shows in general. Cannes. Advertising people at Cannes wearing Speedos. Black Speedos. (You know who you are.) Menard’s ads. ‘This Is Our Country.’ That the internets suck up time that can be used making ads. Groupthink. The herd mentality that decides that a particular ad is amazing. The overuse of the word ‘amazing’. Not to mention ‘content’. ‘Media-neutral’. And ‘robust.’ Facebook’s ad plan. 45-year-olds with Facebook pages. Wait, that’s me. Print ads on two consecutive pages, always two, not three, or eight. Creatives who slam others’ work in Creativity magazine. And finally: gourds.
