RED

My co-workers think I'm weird.

We have this live Google doc that's displayed around the office showing how our websites are doing in sales, and I've commissioned the change to inverse the colors green and red. This time, green is bad. Red is good. Red seems to always get everyone's attention, so I figured we could flip it and work off the attention that red gets.

My co-workers think I'm weird.

Are you watching Team CoCo live? I'm amused.

Now I wonder whether social media is going to define sustenance. Conan and his team have been tirelessly pushing his new TBS program by experimenting all sorts of ways in pushing money into strange internet campaigns. Considering the scale, it is a first in web campaigning, and whatever the results, it'll show how truly effective all this internet nonsense is.

I'm predicting a strong start for Conan, just because the momentum is there. What I hate about internet users is how easily bored they get. Once the glare from being part of an event wears off, Conan just returns to being a normal talk show, should he stick to the same format. Who knows. Whatever speculation, this has to be of the most exciting things to happen in the cross-sectioning of advertising, creative PR, new programming, and the internet to my memory.

WHAT THE FUCK, DON DRAPER?! WHAT THE FUCK!? WHAT?! THE?! FUCK?!

The diner scene was shot one block from my old house in Downey! One block!

Whatever Apple puts out today, I'm going to want it. Haters gonna hate.

I used to believe that PC users were just arrogant assholes who thought that a few years' experience in building their own machines was enough to merit some kind of authority in criticizing Apple. I also used to believe that, since Apple has really put out quality products in recent years, Apple users were just practical and didn't need the self-congratulatory back patting these PC-building fucks love giving themselves.

Then I just came to the conclusion that anyone who has a debate over PC vs. Apple products is just a prick. Period. And anyone who has a debate over PS3 vs. XBOX vs. Wii is just a sexless prick.
