A well intentioned rant about the current state of Advertising, with particular emphasis on Big Dumb Agencies (BDA's) Because, no matter how bad you think it is, it's actually a great deal worse!

Did my thing last night in a brewery... Yes, in his wisdom, Professor Kolstad organized my speaking event for the benefit of his lucky students... In a fucking brewery. What more can I say? The man is a fucking prince. A good time was had by one and all. I am now facing the prospect of a six hour drive back to Boise. I used to do it in five or less, but the number of tickets received from the Idaho State Police (who look remarkably like members of the SS) has put the damper on that. Anyway. I will post more when I get home, and not to panic... I promise at least one Kate picture... Later!
You have to understand that there are very few of us original Mad Men still left plowing the triple Martini trenches of Madison Avenue. You have to understand that most of us habituate places a little far afield these day. You also have to understand that we are “The Genuine Creatives.” Meaning that, unlike fid not, unlike the world’s most famous uber wankers, rely on Judy Wald to shuffle us into Ted Bates in the rancid
drugs, rock & roll, advertising, marketing, blogging, Hitler, Kate Moss. Fucktard, douchenozzle.
