-"You are gone for two weeks?"
-" Oh, Bugger"
That was just me talking to my imaginary friends there. I wish I had time to fix the ad quote of the day script at Adland that so mysteriously stopped working on me before I leave but unfortunatly, I have too many other things to do.. I'm off to Japan, where advertising is straight to the point. Cya!
Ok Kids, no updates for a while. Tomorrow I'm going to Japan, you know, to climb Mt. Fuji, take lot of pictures, and tourist about in general, and buy a proper GO game... I will be back the 23rd.
Another Take on the telia thing..What happens if we mix it with coffe? It aint Lucent..But's it's close. :))
Here's a surefire way to get attention. Compare jews to animals. (yes yes, I know what they wanted to achieve with the ad, but I did get your attention didn't I?)
Being a cable gal who once made three great campaigns from three totally seperate strategies I think @Home are just jelous, they themselves wouldn't buy a good campaign and won't recognise one if it bites them in the ass.(really hard!)
Yes you guessed correctly, the campaigns I made were never produced. They weren't even half as daring as the Pac Bell ads, yet @Home were afraid that the ads were too technical or too smart or too daring. Over here in Holland, were DSL is not yet redily available @Home had the great advantage of screaming "faster" and "no phonebills" in their ads, yet didn't have the guts to do so in a creative way.
Why am I not suprised? Another Elian.. :)) This time from trailervision.
If the actors can go on strike, why can't the creatives? It would be nice if one day, creatives refused to work without pay, for "favours" and on pitches that fail. Our ideas are what we make a living from. Technically we should charge "pay-per-play" as soon as we open our mouth to talk about ideas and concepts. We should charge for initial consultation.
Don't mind me. I'm just sick of not getting paid. I hope TBWA goes to hell. They owe me since January. It's May now. Hello...!? They have an entire department to take care of the economic business, yet the fail to pay any of their bills on time. It's just sad.
You can find some really strange pages just by wandering around pitas.com. Who does this guy think he's writing to? It reminds me a little about kids letters to Santa our their imaginary friends. Scary.
Reading Andrew's diary makes me feel sane.
"Guess who just cracked three eggs into his toilet and poured a year-old bottle of beer into it? Good guess!"
Gotta love the nutter. I do.
More dot-coms are ducking from bills. Deadbeats.com. This is almost exactly the same as the article below.
"Evelyn Lutchmaya sues over ad.
She says she got hundreds of calls after the paper printed the ad for Tiffany which gave full body measurements for someone "sexy and Swedish". But one digit in the phone number was printed wrong, making it the same as Lutchmaya's."
"It happened once, I was upset..." and now it has happened again. Hey Evely, I'd kick ass the first time already. *brr* Sexy and swedish named Tiffany? PuHlease! Dang, I'm insulted. Can't we stereotype the norweigans as the sex-vixens? I'm sick of this shit. (And if anyone asks me where I am from, I usually say Norway to avoid any stereotyping, no one can think of a dang thing norway is famous for. Thank god)
Dot.com's don't pay their bills.
When will the ad industry learn. Don't pitch for free, and don't let the client "pay later". Dammit!
If I make a page for a band, a hypothetical band, or a band with some eighties sounding name; "White lizzies" or something, like
this page.. Do you think people will donate money out of guilt? I might get rich!
I've been logged off all weekend since it was Queensday here. A mad party all over the country from early morning to late at night. The carneval in rio can hang it's head in shame because the dutch can party like that in drizzling rain.
The elian->Whazzup spoof has been permanently yanked. I'm suprised it was the photographer complaining and not Budweiser!
Whoever David Tomlin at AP is, he is a real party-pooper. He asked to have the Elian film at geocities removed, and gone it is, also he made them remove it from sixsite. Now he is nagging, unsuccesfully so far, to have the last remaining film removed from Newgrounds.
Pack up kids, party is over, the big fat copyright cats are here.
