Robert Rosenthal of "FreakingMarketing," has pointed me in the direction of "World Famous," Direct Mail copywriter, Bob Bly, who is engaged in a pissing match on his blog with Jerry Della Femina. It would appear that in a New York Post piece on advertising in the 60's, Jerry said... “Investment bankers started invading the world, and it went from being a business of fun to being a business of money,” he says. “And that changes everything.” Which I absolutely agree with, but Bob's nose was completely put out of joint, 'cos he thinks it is the mission of ad agencies to make money for their clients, and not to have fun while doing it. Apart from obviously being a miserable old fucker, he misses the point... Jerry was talking about the bean counting fuckers who have taken over agencies. Dipshits like Michael Roth and "The Poisoned Dwarf." Maybe before he reads anything else he should have a few of those sinful martinis and lighten up. Anyway, I don't know where he finds the time to read anything. This fucking guy has written over fifty books, and like Seth Godin's prodigious output... They're all the same fucking book!
A weeks output of shit from Bob Bly!
