I THINK, THEREFORE I AM STUPID.

What does thinking about something as stupid as advertising for five straight days do to a person? It eats away at you man, it really does.

(with no apologies to Descartes, who also penned this beaut: "One cannot conceive anything so strange and so implausible that it has not already been said by one philosopher or another." Replace "philosopher" with "copywriter" and it applies perfectly.)

CR, I am an advertising genius just like you. And I can attest to the fact that thinking about advertising is actually very good for you. It teaches you to find just the right pun. To use just the right wordplay. To skillfully bend over the boardroom table at the perfect angle to get fucked just right by the client. And the account team. And your creative director. Rest assured, CR, that kind of skill development can only make you a better person.

CR - I have to say, I love you for all the things you hate. And for a few minutes I was considering trying to get a job in advertising (what else does an old film student who wants a decent day job do to actually make a living because - I'm certainly not a trust fund baby like EVERY OTHER FILM STUDENT ON GODS GREEN EARTH) but, your blog has convinced me otherwise. I wouldn't mind having a little money whilst living in NYC but maybe I should consider prostitution instead. I live in a six floor walk up with no doorman.
