The Future, maybe.

My friend at dinner recently: "How are you guys going to survive when everyone has DVR? I never know what movies are playing anymore because, like, I fast forward through everything. And I watch A LOT of TV."

It's a valid question. One I asked to the board when they stopped by in March. Seems to be that a convergance of technologies is going to save us, Internet on the TV, TV on the Internet, all that.

Anyway, here's a video of a stopgap measure that TBS has begun running. A pox on their viewers, but it does the job.

Another good music videos

Some interesting design ideas working in this one.

We should all be getting Vice.

Jordan was right.

See the other 18. One of them is not safe for work.

At least watch the whole thing once.

Rock and roll is like surrealist film: a little of it is good for you from time to time.

La Resistance

It's interesting to watch smart, young people use their talents and intelligence in opposition to your own. When you're working hard, you never view yourself as the evil empire, but I guess that's who my peers and I aspire to work for. The kids at the Anti-Advertising Agency are the resistance, pushing back against our creative shilling. The work they're doing is really cool, and I respect it on a lot of levels. Everyone should check this out, regardless of which side you're on.

The lead image is from their "you don't need it" sticker campaign, which supplies consumers with... well, I'm sure you can figure it out.

Other cool work they've done includes Advertising=Graffiti and a bus stop campaign. It's all guerrilla and it's all pretty good.

Straight Tastemakin'

Quick post to draw everyone's attention to Just upload your songs and post away; all of a sudden, everyone can listen to the mix you made to score with that chick that works at Trader Joe's. Most of the mixes I've heard thus far have really, really good choices on them, so they're totally worth hearing. Another iteration of web 2.0 that doesn't suck. The pundits may have declared it prematurely pase.

I'll make one of these later. Check back then.
