This reminds me of this gossip blog that recently held a contest for the best cheesy celebrity Hasselhoff-esque photo:

You are officialy out of ideas and just the start of your blog you jumped the shark...

I'm sure your CD is now looking for someone to replace you as I write this.

Please update your resume and forward to Leo Burnett for quick consideration.

Dear copyranter,
On second thought Leo Burnett is too much a move up the ladder for you,if you speak as good as you write no one hears you.

Leo Burnett is seeking some help in their mailroom,check it out,it's a great way to get into the agency game!

Love & Kisses

so Leo Burnett...in, what?—a billion years—they've done one good campaign--Altoids. End of list.

besides, I'm actually already a CD and make even more money than "ridiculous." I put copywriter because nobody outside this idiotic biz understands what "Creative Director" means.

I love you, too. thanks for reading my stupid expensive words.

Hardly anyone inside the biz understands what "Creative Director" means either, including those with the title.

I daresay we're all better off in the mailroom.

that's true, el. including the mailroom comment. at least for most CDs. but, sorry to ruin your fantasy, but my job is very low stress. it's a small agency I've been at since we opened 13 years ago. I come and go as I please. no long hours. the 2 partners are sweethearts (and married). And I will never have to work for another ad agency (if we go under, I'll go back to journalism, my previous career.)

not only am I an asshole, but a lucky motherfucking asshole.

Well, now that I've been sufficiently chastened and had my one remaining fantasy dashed, I can go back to dreaming about licking envelopes in the mailroom.

But, given your attainment of ad biz Valhalla, whence the anger and hatred? (Other than a general sense of schtickiness or just a general sense of assholeness?) Was it the journey, or the abandoment of your soul along the way?

It's a schtick. I do get angry, but that fakish anger is the msot creative thing I do on a daily basis. And, I'd say some of both re: your last point.

OK, I gotta go do...something else.

Dear copyranter...aka
"Creative Director"

OK bigshot,show us your stuff...

Start with your most creative copy/headlines,etc.and move down from there,let us be the judge how great you are or not!

Actually the Altoids campaign ran its course years ago and got even lamer once Stephan P.left 35 West Wacker Drive,but let's see how Wrigley/DDB/OMD screws it up...

gosh anon, after all these wonder-filled months of blogging, you're the first who's asked to see my book.

no.

you want to hire me freelance? you can see my book. I'll tell you this: because we're a small place, I see a lot of the supposed "top" freelance books, and well, mine is better than most. not all. but most.

now go away. as I've said before here, this is a blog for non adpeople. go back to adfreak and adpulp, insider.

Dear "CD",

Excuse me!

Nowhere on your site does it say anything about it being for "non adpeople" (is that even a word).

You set yourself up as soon as you launched this site and opened yourself to everyone with an opinion about the industry or the lameness of advertising creative,(including yours).

I could care less about your "book",just wanted to see if you have actually written/created anything interesting.

Now you go away,mook!

Love & Kisses

Is it too late to say I thought Knight Rider was kinda um lame?

I don't want to get in the the middle of the line of fire here...
