Golden Age of Advertising


Shakespeare could write a jingle for Eggos that would really make you think.  I think he was best known for his slogan for “Murphy’s Bloodletting.”  How many monkeys, and how many years, do you think would be needed to come up with that?  Thank god, just like Barry Manilow, he graduated to write his own Copacabana…The Two Gentlemen of Verona.

Rest in Pieces

Don’t you love when Crankshaft takes part in a “very special” Funky?  Or when the “Mad About You” crew showed up on “Friends?”  Remember when “Crossing Jordan” crossed over to “Las Vegas?”  I’m sure the ratings just skyrocketed then!

This crossover seems more like a Reese’s Peanut butter cup if they decided to mix Brussels Sprouts and Monkey Poop instead of Peanut Butter and Chocolate.

Happy In Depends Day

Rest in Pieces

My country reminds me of The Rolling Stones.  They started out very derivative but showing much promise (12X5, Aftermath).  After some time and internal strife they came together for a period where they could do no wrong (Beggars Banquet to Exile on Main Street).  Then the they got full of themselves and went way overboard and lost their way (Black and Blue or Dirty Work anyone?  anyone?).  Now they just continue on doing the same old stupid stuff without doing anything that takes real effort or has much worth (touring and multiple “live” albums).  Eventually, they’ll just fade away, full of rust.  By the way, I’m from Canada.
