OMG. I'm So Bizzy!

I really shouldn't be taking this time to blog right now.

Short story: I saw Martha Stewart. It was a very interesting discussion but the interviewer was kind of lame. I love Martha so much! She's a powerhouse and an extremely smart and passionate businesswoman.

Several of my projects are going bonkers right now, but my boss has insisted that I put them on autopilot to attend some more Advertising Week events.

Ad Week is very, very cool. There really isn't much to talk about that's interesting to non-marketing/non-advertising people. It's mostly marketing/brand strategy and execution talks. Shop talk.

Because of my workload, I've missed several cool celebrity appearances like a performance by Chaka Khan at the branded music discussion yesterday. *le sigh*

Anywhoodles, I gotta run. I'll try to tell you all more later.

(No, I don't have pictures. They don't like when you do that in some of these panel discussions.)

Yeah, I didn't think you get any. Oh well.

Say, Flib, were you honestly offended by my rather strong blast against modern adverts? If so, could you help me understand them better so as to appreciate there actual greatness?

Like all things artificed, I love to appreciate the ingenuity involved. Am I missing it here?

Perhaps a post (or posts)?

No, I am not offended by such commentary. There is a lot of bad advertising out there.

I am convinced that the ratio of competent marketers to mouth-breathing window-lickers is about 1:250, so it is no surprise that there are some bad, bad ideas floating around out there.

The fun thing about Advertising Week is that I get to see a lot of the really good ones talking about how they do their jobs.

Cool! Can we expect enlightenment in the form of some posts? I think it'd be neat to read you waxing eloquent about your career. :)
