First banner ad I've ever liked →
jimmyjimmyjimmy: Just keep clicking… Agreed.
Designing a logo is a story. It’s a tale of drama, adventure, comedy, and sometimes head scratching confusion. Often you finish the journey smoothly, but sometimes you make several stops along the way. This is the story of the Tabernacle Logo. via
I saw this ad and then I ate some biscuit holes. Coincidence?

The Plane Game!
tylerriewer: My friend Clint and I play a game when we fly… where we assign each other a profession and personality quirk to take onto the airplane. Comedian who laughs wildly at his own jokes, treasure hunter who ends sentences in a questioning tone, magician who apologizes too much… you get the idea. The only rule is that you go out of your way to make conversation. Today I’m headed back to...
My theory on management is there is no such thing. Only mismanagement. So i try...– Alex Bogusky [I have a presentation due on Wednesday about CP+B. Since Alex Bogusky recently started following me on twitter, I figured I’d ask him if he had any words of advice for my Advertising Management class. This was his reply. Very cool.]

People Hate Movie Theatre Ads...
…because most of them are bad ads. I like this one and this one.
Cool. I USED TO have a car just like this.– The 16-year-old grocery bagger as he loaded my groceries into my ‘95 Grand Prix.
thedailywhat: TV Promo of the Day: HBO recently announced a new detective comedy set to air this fall called Bored to Death, which stars every person you’d ever want starring in a show together (Jason Schwartzman, Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, Parker Posey, and Ted Danson to name a few). [via.] Thank you HBO.
I heart JIBJAB.

Chris died.– This was the subject of an e-mail I found in my junk mail. It’s amazing what people will do to get their junk mail to stand out from the rest. Effective. Evil, but effective.
Only three things scare me...
1. Watching the toaster, waiting for my toast to pop. 2. Opening a package of vacuum-sealed biscuits or cinnamon rolls. 3. The glaucoma test at the eye doctor.
HOW TO: Sneak into a movie theatre
I confess. I occasionally sneak into movies. And so can you. Back in college, my buddy WG and I paid for tickets to a movie that ended up being absolutely horrible. Halfway through the movie, I vowed that I would get my money back. We snuck into the next movie we went to. And several since. Over the years, we’ve honed our craft, developing a few sure-fire strategies. Piggyback. Start...
Legislation would tone down volume of TV ads →
No more cranking up the volume when the TV show starts, only to crank it back down for commercials. Now, if only we could make using alarm clocks in ads illegal.
Just watching my Tumblarity fall...
I’ll miss you 91. We had some good times together. But we both knew it wouldn’t last.

So much pressure…so little time.
In a dramatic turn of events, I’ll be starting grad school this summer with missamy afterall. Today, in fact. The only downside is I haven’t had adequate time to prepare. There will be no new school outfits, sharpened #2 pencils, or “Just Do It” Trapper Keepers for me. :(
A couple of months ago, I realized that whenever I call BC I always hear the toilet flush at the end of the conversation. When I asked him about it, he said, “In my old cube, I couldn’t hear you because it was too loud. The bathroom was only place I could go to hear you.” But now he has an office. And he can hear me just fine. But whenever I call, he still leaves his office to...
Facebook Adds New Family Section to Profile for... →
I’m a little late on this, but thought I’d throw my two cents in anyway. I’m hoping this will help my friends realize they need to behave themselves on facebook. But I’m guessing it results in my mom getting poked. Alot.
Abbott and Costello...eat your heart out.
My mom: I'll have the grilled chicken sandwich.
Waitress: And would you like the soup or salad?
My mom: Yes.
Waitress: Which one?
My mom: I'm sorry?
Waitress: The soup or salad?
My mom: Yes please.
Waitress: So, you'd like both?
My mom: Oh no. One is plenty.
Waitress: One of what?
My mom: The Super Salad.
Waitress: I'm sorry, do you want me to pick?
My mom: Pick what?
I honestly think this would have gone on forever had I not intervened, explaining to the waitress that my mom thought she was referring to a larger, "super" salad. "Who's on First" is easily my favorite comedy routine of all time, so watching it unfold in front of me was a dream come true.
