why copywriting is an undervalued art (exhibit #3467c)



(when the main problem with a two-word phrase is NOT the grammatical error, things have most definitely gone wrong)

I would no sooner order this than the sissy salad or the pansy platter. I mean, yeah, this sandwich might sell better in the female demographic, but still, it's hard to imagine this hasn't hurt sales at least a little bit.

michael jackson's death in screenshots



I’m sorry, but if you’re crying in public while holding a pillow with a picture of Michael Jackson’s face on it (or anyone’s face, for that matter), you clearly have some unresolved issues – “it don’t matter if you’re black or white.”



The frontrunner for "Best Headline of 2009." Some interesting info in there, too (click for the link).



A moment frozen in time: two women cry over MJ… or the Shaq trade.

hey

Wow, it's been ages since I've posted here. I do plan on rekindling this here blog, but not until I find a job. I've been out of work for two months and now is simply not the time to start collecting my daily thoughts again. In the meantime, the small handful of you who might be reading this should check out my latest project, fact unchecked. Thanks and stay tuned...
