Didyasee that the “Cannes International Festival of Creativity” (Fuck, I remember when it was just known as “Cannes.”) pulled a record 35,765 entries this year? As the average entry fee is in the hundreds of dollars, this adds up to a shitload of money. Fuck, Bill Evans must be spinning in his grave at the thought of how much “blow” that would have bought! Every year they add a few dozen new categories, and a couple of years ago, they topped themselves by adding… The Creative Excellence Category… I mean c’mon guys, pardon my geriatric stupidity here… But aren’t ALL the fucking categories supposed to demonstrate creative excellence? I’m rooting for Kosovo, Bahrain and Jordan, who each have one entry, which unlike the hundreds of Brazilian entries, may have actually run.
Warp factor nine, Captain!
