Ad Blogger Gets Weight Off Chest, Begs For Link

too_much_weight.jpg

We like emails that come from people like a.tipster@yahoo.com and read "check out the blog of a former eurorscg4d creative director. she rips the gm a pretty big one. the weird thing is that this cd hasn't worked at euro for about 2 years! she has been stewing about the old gm for so long that she included her smackdown in the FIRST entry EVER of this blog. two years after the fact. the blog is at: http://www.creativesgobad.blogspot.com/

We especially like these emails since nowhere on the blog does reveal any of these details making us roll our eyeballs, utter a collective "hmm" and conclude, as we so often do, a.tipster@yahoo.com is non other than said woman promoting her own blog by hoping we'll link to yet? Well, here you go new ad blogger. Link, link, link. Happy? The least you could have done was slap a logo on your blog so we could use it here rather than the completely gratuitous image of some random girl who actually does need to get some weight off her chest.

UPDATE: We're told, in comments said blogger has never heard of Adrants, did not send this email to us and did not ask for a link.

Reminds me of a few years back when we blew up a couple of weather baloons for a stunt. All air and no substance.

Jesus Steve...
You have a serious tit fixation here.
You should be like me and put women on a pedestal.
That way you can look up their skirts.
Cheers/George

Interesting...since I am actually the author of said blog and have never heard of AdRants and am actually being accused of asking to have my blog linked to from your site. A shout out to the person who made me aware of this, and a yawn of disappointment and mild dismay to whomever decided to choose a photo of their hooker...media rep...or mother and attach it to this.

Never heard of adrants...hmmm. Sorry, Esteban.

And that hooker picture is bringing the new blog traffic, proving once again that ass sells.

never heard of adrants?!? hmm... i guess now we know why you were fired as a copywriter.

Posted by: brent on August 15, 2006 1:34 PM

Brent: Ah, but I was not fired as a copywriter. Nor was I ever fired from any job. Perhaps this lack of attention to detail in your reading and what you infer from my post is because you're either 1) an account person, so what do details matter? or 2) a creative who is still drunk or hungover, so what do details matter? If it's the latter, right on. And BTW, having now had AdRants brought to my attention, I'm adding it to my must-have-with-coffee-in-the-am list. Thank you to the host for updating the site as it pertains to my blog.

I happen to know the person whose blog this is, so I have to set the record straight here. Her boobs are nowhere near that big.

But other than that, she's very smart and very cool. Whether or not you agree with the stuff in her blog, it's still worth reading.

No, I inferred that you were fired because of your lack of grammar, substance, and above all your sub-par style of writing... apparently details DO matter.

Here was my thought process on this one to help clarify(because I realize you must be “hungover”): If you haven’t heard of adrants before, I can infer that you probably don't read many advertising blogs (adrants is a household advertising reference on this little network we like to call the internet). If you aren’t reading any advertising/marketing blogs then you probably aren't up-to-par with the current creative trends/work. If you aren't staying on top of what's going on in the industry then you probably are a sub-par creative. If you are a sub-par creative, I would have fired you long ago(if i was in a position to do so). Stick to what you do best: hitting the sauce.. it seems to be the magical source of all your "creativity."

My first response is "lighten up - it's a joke, dumb ass!" But that's so high school. And I really don't think you're dumb ass. Maybe a tight ass. But not a dumb ass.

So let me say this: If only I did drink - but alas, I don't. I guess I can only blame my apparent lack of blog-awareness, grammar and substance on the public schools. Sigh. Now I'll have to turn to creating a blog that features not my original but clearly substance-free and poorly written thoughts with one that features other agencies' ads. Oh wait, someone else has already done that.

Signing off so I can catch up with those Real Creatives Who Read Blogs. Wish me luck!

So let me get this straight, Brent: the best way to ensure that I stay on the cutting edge of creativity is to dutifully track the bitchings and ramblings of a community that has nothing better to do with their time than to post said bitchings on an online forum?
Wow, I must be sub-par, too. Here all this time I thought the key was exploring new ideas and approaches. Turns out the real secret is reading amusing thoughts on others' work.
So ad blogs are the secret to staying current. And anybody who doesn't spend their day perusing them is woefully behind the times. Who knew? Well, I guess you did, Brent. I wonder what else I don't know, but I suppose I'll have to attend your seminar at the Double-Tree.
Brent, thank you for your wise counsel. I'd write more, but I've got a lot of blogs to read and venomous comments to post. My career may depend on it.

"the best way to ensure that I stay on the cutting edge of creativity is to dutifully track the bitchings and ramblings of a community that has nothing better to do with their time than to post said bitchings on an online forum?"

Well, first I'm glad that you could find some time out of your busy day to endorse this girls' site, only to follow it up by responding with a "venomous" comment of your own...

By venomous I am referring to your comment regarding the Double-Tree. My Seminar has, and always will be, at the Holiday Inn Express, where you get free internet and a complimentary continental breakfast with every stay. Thank you, and welcome to the internet.

Posted by: brent on August 15, 2006 7:16 PM

You Holiday Inn Express guys are always so full of yourselves.
And the inter-net? I believe I heard of that in town while fetchin' supplies. Although I didn't have my big horn in my ear at the time, so it could've been anything.

Posted by: bleucheez on August 15, 2006 7:31 PM

It may seem that way sometimes, but we're actually just full of that delicious complimentary continental breakfast that i mentioned earlier. Yum, yum!

Posted by: brent on August 15, 2006 7:38 PM

This is why we don't blog.

Posted by: The Amish on August 16, 2006 11:14 PM

Jeez. What a bunch of navel-gazing, self-important blather. Reading ad blogs is the mark of a good writer? I keep thinking the people in this business can't become more shallow, then read this kind of drivel....
