Damn, Quit Giving Away All Our Writing Secrets!

It's not easy being a copywriter today.

It's not fair.

Anyone and everyone you encounter on a daily basis, from clients to counterparts, from art directors to art buyers, if they know the English language, they think they're writers at heart. And they'll re-write the prose you've toiled over for hours with the first 3rd-grade composition that pops into their heads.

And this is where the problems start.






We're all capable of doing it. Right?

Of being direct.

Of being clear.

Of getting to the point ... in an adventurous and poetic manner, leading your reader to the point like a treasure map leading Goonies to a sloth.

It's not easy being a copywriter today.

So, thank you, Manifesto Maker. You've saved me a lifetime of stress.



Fun Star Wars Print by Mr. Brainwash

If Star Wars was set a "long time ago," are they actually being portrayed in futuristic clothing?
My mind is boggled.

Josh vs. Soup

Josh is the king of speed eating. He's not exactly the king of eating contests, though. Today's challenge was a test of lunch vs. work, and Josh's will to not go hungry makes him a champion for all of us.

But, it sucks when you realize (at the beginning of lunch) that you have a 1:00 meeting scheduled. It sucks even worse when your soup doesn't get to the table until 12:56. What sucks worse than that? Not sure. It's a tie between having to drink your soup and walking into a meeting with soup on your shirt. Lucky for Josh, he didn't spill a drop.

I Hadn't Bought Anything in a While... So...

I had to pick up a Charlie Sheen shirt. Just to commemorate his spiral out of control and help other people make money off of his misfortune, I believe it's a good purchase. Nice job to Alex Pardee. This is a pretty sweet interpretation of 'tiger blood.' I wonder if it works anything like vampire blood? In any case, if you're selling some of that too, I'll buy it. Or if anyone else wants one of these t-shirts, you can find them here for $24.

I also grabbed a Larry and His Flask shirt. One, because it had my name on it. And two, because I dig music that gets your feet moving after a few whiskey and waters. So, if you like rockabilly or bluegrass or bango metal or whatever you want to call it, give these guys a listen. (Thanks for the tipoff, Russ.)
