In the immortal words of George Sanders, or was it Hitler, before they blew their brains out… I am truly fucking bored with the current state of the ad biz. Consider that it is, in fact, the world’s second oldest profession. And we know what the first was. So we have survived by reinventing ourselves to be able to spout shit for whatever current crop of Caesars, Popes, Lords or CEO’s will foot the bill for our three martini lunches. Now, thanks to the miracles of technology, we are finding it harder and harder to explain EXACTLY what the fuck it is we do, and avoid them realizing they could probably do it for themselves, and much cheaper. It’s even harder to get them to cough up for a three Evian lunch. But who the fuck wants to drink Evian? If you are considering entering the business now… Do yourself a favor and consider plumbing. There will always be shit clogging pipes, as distinct from shit clogging your brains.
Thank God for Kate. Never boring!
