Matt, over at AgencySpy has a post asking for peoples reaction to the current downturn in the ad biz... Here was my reply... Matt... This is the world's dumbest post... And the comments from the poor unfortunates out there just encourage you to blow your fucking brains out. Yes, it's bad right now... But, it's going to get REALLY bad long before it gets better. There is one thing everyone in advertising has to realize... The ad biz as we know it is OVER... Don't get me wrong... It will not cease to exist... It is, after all, the world's second oldest profession. But the BDA's are doomed and the vast majority of poor fuckers spending thousands at scams like VCU will end up flipping burgers at MickieDee. Forget networking via LinkedIn, FaceBook, or whatever, start learning to drive a Trans-continental truck, or acupuncture, or something unrelated to advertising... 'Cos the glory days are over... Sorry, but I've seen this shit before... And it's NEVER been this bad!
If only Alex would put his fucking guitar down and call me!
