Here’s a write up someone did about the Blood Transfusion night, so happy I still have pants on in that photo.

the season

leave a comment »

I was perusing the webz the other day and I think it was a post on Junior that mentioned something about it being Christmas soon and that it was a great time to get your resume’s in to all the agencies around the place as they’ll probably be having quite a few staff off holidaying over the festive season. I think this is a tops idea, any young creatives out there should whip up a portfolio of work (that means mock-ups as well, no one expects you to have a portfolio of 100% produced work at a young age) and send it off to wherever you want. Imagine getting the nod to fill in for a junior copywriter in an awesome boutique agency in Surrey Hills or even somewhere in Boston or London? Wahoo!

long, honest copy.

David Nobay, someone I have never met but would very much like to, was behind the open letter in The Australian on the 13th that made clear the state creative advertising was in and also of its biggest enemy; Anonymous.

Anonymous. He’s such a cunt. He’s got the brains of a YouTube commenter mixed with the spite of a failed Myspace model. Pure unadulterated hate. And it’s not even the petty 4chan Anonymous hate; at least that hate has a purpose.

Now I got into this industry with the outlook that it would be, more or less, filled with fun and creative people. A little naive, but I think it’s a fair assumption to have. In all the youngbloods meet and greets I’ve gone to, I’ve only entered into¬†conversation with, as I suspected, fun and creative people. So where does this bitter binary bastard of banal banter come from?

Fucks me, I returned to edit this a few days later and I have no idea where I was going with it. The internet is full of cunts; give a man anonymity and a tool to express themselves to the masses and, well, all your going to get is a pot full of toss.
