A trailer for the new James Bond movie. And keeping in accordance to the universal time/interest ratio...the trailer is about 56 secs too long....similar to the first time Daniel Craig played this role. And interestingly enough....the freeze frame is a little sexy....accidente? 

Dont get me wrong- the last one was very good. It just comes to a point when you have to look at your watch and wonder if you correctly set your DVR to record the new Real World episode (ewww, gotta catch you up on that). A little nip/tuck at the editing and a different bond girl (oh yeah, she died in the last one...so there should be no problem) and Quantum Golden Monkey Claw should be great. I'll even see it in the moving picture house.

put the lollipop down and smile with your eyes.

hey...remember when Italian Vogue put out that "ALL BLACK"edition featuring nothing but black models? Yeah, well this story has nothing to do with that (but I did forget to mention it...its for this month).

This time Vogue fashion geniuses paired with street artist Fafi. Now Fafi is regularly known for sensual little sexy cartoon pics of scantly clad, cutesy little girls. So what do you think Vogue did (Nippon Vogue anyway)? Well they replaced the cartoon girls with little real ones in recent editorial/artsy photo shoot. Its just art.

I guess I can see the controversy behind it all. Having girls all dolled up well before their age. In fashion shoots promoting their prepubescent naivety. Wait....wait....isnt that what modeling is all about. Aren't these little girls just getting a head start? Well good for them. Its the recession you know? A paycheck is a pay check.

I must admit, they are a little erie. Especially the second one. She looks like she would kill her own  puppy and skin it for a winter shawl (i was originally going to say that she looked like American psycho but with down syndrome...deadly combo, but I decided to go the pc route)

Hmmm....American Pyscho...

nicely done smoking ads.

Good stuff. BRB, I need a cigarette break....

death to barbie.

Ok, I lied...I've found several things that I need to share  before I start working. The most compeling being this photo shoot involving the iconnic Barbie.

(click the link to see more...it really is worth it. Ane has got some lame description/explanation for her work....but really its just some cool ass sh*t.)

Wino & Kanye sitting in a tree....

Good Monday...I have some things to do. So here is a morning quickie to start off the week.

At a recent show Amy Winehouse punches her fan....multiple times....as she is performing.

Then goes on to say that she is “not opening for a cunt like Kanye.

Kanye's blog response here. Not as entertaining as the other one...but still in all CAPS. 

That is all. 

P.S. I really dont mean to make this like a celeb gossip blog or anything...but some things just need to be shared. Ya know?


weekends are so much better.

So remember that Summer hours thing we were talking about. Well, you are currently witnessing it in action. Im outtie for the weekend right now. Technically, I should be going to Kansas with my Chi-town roommates...but I was forced to change my plans for a cousins engagement party. Whap whap. Anyway...Im off for my second NY weekend. Holler. Be safe kids. And I'll see you next week. Here's a little jammy jam to lead out into Saturday.

So Much Betta - Janet Jackson


genuine smile.

this video made me smile. No jaded smart remarks or thinking. No dirty joke or fun poking. No amusing story of someone elses downfall. It made me smile out of pure coolness and ingenuity.

50% cotton. 50% polyester. 100% walking turn on.

I dont care if its retro. Fake or some sort of ploy.....its Genius. The copy is a masterpiece of reflection and true style. "Yeah baby!"

Am I man enough to fill it? Cha. Gimme one in light lavender. Ill show you all the meaning of the word man.

wimbledon days: 4 and 5

Wow. I definetly spoke too soon (and forgot to knock on wood). My favorite players have dropped like flies in the midst of roach spray. And thats fast. Andy Roddick, James Blake and Sharapova . Davenport was forced to quit due to injury. And that's sad. 

Some no name beat 3 seed Sharapova  saying "I don't like her outfit. Can I put it this way? I liked her outfit at the French Open, so probably that's why."- Alla Kudyravtseva
Alla is no  looked, but you gotta give her props, she didnt like the outfit so she kicked her out of the building with a little ass whipping.  

Who is left you may ask? Nadal. Federer. The Williams Sisters. My backup favorits: I guess Safin.....the racist Llyeton Hewitt (always fun to watch him play), and ummmmm Tommy Haas, I guess.

P.S. The Draft. Rose is in Chicago. Beasley is in Miami. OJ  Mayo is with the Timberwolves. And that all for the interesting part...I only made it to 3. Except they booed that Italian guy when he got picked for the Knicks. That was funny. As if the Knicks should be turning down talent. 

UPDATE: Ummmm.....Mayo is not in Minnesota. He was traded late night. So....what was the point of watching this event again?


journals of a Junior AD: Part 3 "Know your role"

So, I over stepped my boundaries. There was entire day devoted to writing lines for an ad we are placing in the WSJ. Its for some big financial do-what-er-have-you-whatcha-mecal it. Literally within a minute of reading the brief I was forced to pull up wikipedia. And the sad part is after I was done with the article and had clicked every possible link on the page...I still didn't know what was going on.

But needless to say I "faked the funk" (kelly) and spent an entire day coming up with 26 lines. 26. From an Art Director. My head almost exploded with all those words .What I did was use the already layed out themes: middle, international and precise ...and I just wrote. Im talking dictionary.com/ thesaurus.com wrote. And damn it...I looked my copy writer in the eye and said..."I can do your job." And I believed it. The following morning my CD brought me into the office and said  "You Shaun, should keep your day job...which happens to be art direction here at this company." He promptly gave me an Art Direction Project, booped me on the nose and sent me skipping out to my cubicle.

Nice try right? My copy writer, whom I shall now refer to as A-Dawg, apparently had some golden lines. Go figure.

On another note...I'm in the midst of developing 2 microsites. I spent about 2 hours in the main conference room today doing some 'brainstorming/what cant we do-ing" with our designer computer guy. The AE waltzed in to lay down the law on us creative types...but there was no tension. Cause in the end, its a job. And that's what I like about this agency sofar. There are some real people. I just cant wait to find the real people who party hard. But back to the meeting....it was riveting...the entire 2 hours. I know in my heart that I was meant to do this...and you know why...because its statistically known that I cant keep interest in one thing for more than 5 minutes at a time...but this meeting...kept me so interested, that I almost popped a boner.  Boners for advertising! Anyone? Boners.....

Can you tell I'm a fresh fish to the industry? Wait until I start to get jaded like all my other blogging buddies...thats when the real Junior AD journals get started. "This is the true story of 50 strangers picked  to work in an agency....

Some Job Perks that you dont have:
- Im an Ad Agency creative, I can wear whatever the f*ck I want. One day...I will wear shorts. And you know what...I will still have a job. A-Dawg wears shorts everyday and he has bee there longer than I have,
-Summer hours. Do you guys know what that means? On Fridays...if we have no work to do...nothing pending....we get out at 1pm. BOOYAH! I dont know what type of job you have personally...but mine is the Bomb.
-I told you about the private "room" bathrooms right? They are awesome. They are lined in marble. Sound and smell proof. Its just you and your toilet. No one else. And your own personal can of Oust. And thats the future people.
-At my old job, you had to pay for sodas....not here.
-more to come.....

Im lovin it.

they may have forgotten the glow sticks.

I dont know why I am so obsessed with Mandela's 90th bday party. Its just that his guest list is insane. God probably debated on making an appearance. Granted, its no ragger....but as I stated b4, I cant even get my own friends to leave their houses for an open bar....let alone my bday.

Correction. Naomie Cambell was there. Coke in bathroom. Ecstasy in the coat closet. And anal orgy  in the kitchen blindfolded. RAGGER!!!!!!!

straight ads.

too much Project Runway (or any Bravo reality show really)?

well, if you are getting tired of all the gay advertising in the world...or even the media coverage. Read V.I.P, the men's magazine. It's the straight magazine. 

Tag: Think Like a Man. VIP. The mens magazine. 

Cause its for men. Get it? Men who like women.

Advertising Agency: MatosGrey, São Paulo, Brazil

P.S. I think the typeface is so gross for these ads. They should've went for a serif font. That would've been fierce.

Gov Schwarzeneger.

Throwback Thursdays brings you classic Arnold clips from the past. 

The New Dating Game Show.
"By the way, that is not true."

Just Smokin.

The Pump

"It feels fantastic... Its as satisfactory as cumming is...Im cumming day and night, its terrific, Im in heaven."

And he is currently in charge of a section of America. The Terminator. 

just a few (10) things.

1. New coke bottle design.  If they were metal I would be able to club people with them. Just a thought. Oh wait...they are.....

2. How you know that YOU are the man. Have a bday party and a bday guest list of the following:Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith, Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker, Leona Lewis, Kelly Preston, Joan Baez, Kim Cattrall, Oprah Winfrey, Pierce Brosnan, Naomi Campbell and Robert DeNiro. Im sorry....did you say Oprah?!? 
Damn, I cant even get my friends to come out on my bday.

3. What's better than midget sex? Celebrity midget sex tapes...thats what. Vern Troyer making out with a normal sized woman sounded like a a good idea to watch. Its actually kinda gross.

4. Larry King has no idea who anyone is (1:54). 

5."How did they get that monkey to do that?

6. Ms New York is still around. And tarnishing the reputations of dead people left and right.

7. New Old Spice ad reminds me of Harry Potter, the Chronicle of Narnia and every other multimillion dollar fantasy movie. The only thing it doesn't remind me of, is the need to buy Old Spice body wash/hair wash. Im not half horse half man Wieden Kennedy. And if I were...never mind- lets not go into it. 

8. So... Anne Hathaway's (???) ex boy friend got arrested for conspiracy of fraud and money laundering. Like so federal ish. But that in and of itself is boring as balls. The funny part is the following: He is accused of falsely telling an investor that he had been appointed as the chief financial officer of the Vatican.  
I mean...if someone told you face to face that they were the "chief financial officer of the Vatican" wouldn't you laugh in their face. Its a fact, GOD dont like ugly....but he may enjoy a little bit of hysterical genius.

9. Guy Richie directed spot makes football (soccer), a bit more interesting. In my opinion. 


10. Ok....would you kill me if I didn't have a number 10? Im tired of typing and Im at work....so deal with it. 

Havent done this type of post in awhile...and now I see why. Tough to find 1o things I find interesting in one day. These will be few and far in between.

how to follow up a boob post.

ummm, I think Obama deserves to be the president just for being so damn handsome. (no homo). 

your boob still smells the same to me.

So this nip slip is a bit different. Yeah sure it's Rod Stewart less famous wife. Yeah sure she did it on purpose. Yeah sure, it was merely the side effect of feeding time. But the succession of photos is hilarious.

Or maybe its just me. And matching pink ensembles on my Mediterranean cruise...a definite in my future (hear that future wife).

gay mayo ads.

well here's a real gay ad for you. 

This ad is all the rave in the UK. And by all the rave, I mean hated.


Kanye will put a cap in yo ass.

Or atleast respond to your criticisms with all CAPS. Cause you know...that emphasises the point. Like your yelling. With alot of feelings. On your blog

"I am sick of negative people who just sit around trying 2 plot my downfall... Why???? I understand if people don't like me because I like me or if people think tight clothes look gay or people say I run my mouth to much, But this Bonnaroo thing is the worst insult I've ever had in my life. This is the most offended I've ever been... this is the maddest I ever will be. I'm typing so fucking hard I might break my fucking Mac book Air!!!!!!!! Call me any name you want.... arrogant, conceited, narcissistic, racist, metro, fag whatever you can think of.... BUT NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL! NEVER SAY I DIDN'T GIVE MY ALL! THIS SHOWS NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY TO BE GOOD AT SOMETHING THERE WILL BE PEOPLE THERE TO LIE ABOUT YOU AND BRING YOU DOWN! LIKE WAYNE SAYS PLEASE DON'T SHOOT ME DOWN CAUSE I'M FLYING! I'M FUCKING HURT BY THIS ONE. ALL I CARE ABOUT ARE THE FANS. JUST SAY THIS OUT LOUD IN A ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE, "KANYE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT GIVING A GOOD PERFORMANCE." CAN ANYONE HONESTLY SAY THAT ?????????... "

And it goes on and on and on. He basically blaims it on the venue. And his fans on the site support him in the comments section (a little bit to much if u ask me). We've definitely reached the pentacle of the future here, when you dont even have to issue a statement to the press...you just blog about it. 

wimbledon days: 2 and 3

I dont know about you but all of my favs lived on to see another day. I actually stalk espn.com to keep up to track with this event. I never had to do that in the past...which should speak volumes about my professional life up until now. 

Lets discuss the soap opera that is professional tennis. This should be brief.

Mere mortal or God. He's no Andre Agassi but he seems to never stop. Sir Roger Federer the Swede .
James Blake is still in it. He is about asconsistent as the Chihuahua (Prince Williams) that I had as a kid. I taught him how to sit for a treat...but that muthf*cker would never do it when people were watching. He was either too dumb or too smart. The debate is still up in the air. 
Sharapova. Eh. She's cute. Reason enough to keep her around.

Lindsey, Lindsey, Lindsey....you are 32 years of age. You've got a bum hip or ankle or something, but you made it through the first round. However, you have been around since i was in elementary school. It may be time for you to look into a rocking chair and some knitting needles. We'll get them shaped like tennis rackets.

Ass holes are talented too. See you tommorow douchbag.
Nadal the little Spaniard get to rock his capros (man capris) atleast one more day. Infact, Im pretty sure capros are making some sort of comeback. And this is good cause I still have mine from 6th grade. It was all the rage when I was a kid.
One day I will have biceps like Serena Williams.
And Venus is still truckin along. I feel like if she brought back the hair beeds circa 1998 she would totally dominate...the world. BTW, I do the best Venus and Serna tennis grunt. Its all about the timing while you strike the ball.
And Djokovic didnt have the easiest of days. After all his boasting about conquering you know who this season, he went and lost to Marat Safin for the past decade has made money off of not being good. Poor Serb. 

Roll the credits. 

Busy day, so theres no posts really...sorry about that.

satisfied Fred, I am unsatisfied.

"I didn't liken an African American to a monkey, I likened him to a cartoon character."

I'll be honest...I didnt even watch the whole thing. 


sponsoring underaged sex.

JC Penny is sponsoring underaged sex. Watch out parents. You better start sending those horn balls to the Gap. Lord knows they are boring enough this season to completely turn off the opposite sex.

18 secs....slow ass mofo....

intrusive ads.

ok, so technically its pretty genius. The placment. The message. It all combines to form a thought prevoking message. But, talk about forcing the consumer into a awkward situation. I personally would feel tricked and bamboozled. 

As an ad guy...I appreciate it. As a shopper...I would feel anger for making me feel bad for my twizzler purchase.

TBWA\Hunt\Lascaris, Johannesburg

"kobe, tell me how my ass tastes"

oh man....Shaq stepped up his hater game last night with a genius....genius free style. Actual talent aside...this is hilarious.

the battle of good & well.

this and this alone is the only grammer mistake that makes me cringe. The use of "well" and "good". In my opinion it is as epic as the struggle between good an evil. And trust me, I know its impolite to correct someone's grammar ; I'm no grammar nazi (i mean look at this blog for example...I break grammer and spelling rules like its my job), but when people mistake these particular words...I'll correct you. Even if we are at the pearly gates and God,thee God, askes the man infront of me how he is doing I will correct him if needed...."he is actually doing well."

VERBS do well.
NOUNS do good.

damn it. 


Wimbledon 2008.

Can 2007 champions Venus Williams and Roger Federer defend their titles at Wimbledon? Prostituded Thoughts will begin its coverage as of now.....

good bye monkey.

it was time for a change....
the monkey has got to go. you know ur feelin the new layout. its flashy. and i made the banner...cause im an AD.


over a millie.

So...Lil Wayne's album sales were through the roof. Over a million copies in the first week. I must admit, the first 2 songs are kinda hot and on my ipod. And thats impressive. All I have to say is...there must be alot of people in the south. Like say over a million.....

I dont want to discredit the man. But every time I try to come up with something positive about the South....I meet obstruction. Hard, cold and bold obstruction. Just as I was saying...."good for that young black man, Jay cant even move that weight these days" I find a video like this....

Seriously....Im thinking genocide here. It's just all so wrong and backwards. What the f*ck is Lil Wayne talking about. There isnt even a hint of a decently put together sentence. Its just scary man....

step 1. step 2. step 3.

In a recent speech,  Presidential candidate Obama made a statment that is literally stirring up the American media and the republican race who claims race has nothing to do with anything.

"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"

Gasp, oh no...race, an issue in America. Never. I mean never  could you buy a pin at the Republican Convention as ignorant and racist as whats bellow. You could never call someones wife their baby's mamma on national tv. You could n
ever try to sell a minstrel doll to the public. Never could you sway the American public to thinking along the lines of race. Those are all preposterous notions.

OH wait.....

 UPDATE: Lets add the Obama monkey sock doll to the list shall we.

time for a video.

Ive done alot of typing. So I feel its time for a video to break the monotony. Ive featured this already. but I do think it is brilliant enough to show again. From the movie Across the Universe, thier rendition of the Beatles classic "Strawberry Fields Forever". Its beautiful. Timeless. Artistic. And classic. Enjoy.....

And here is another good scene...I Want You and Heavy also obviously by the Beatles.

the eye of the beholder.

My addiction for today is focused on graphic artist Shepard Fairey . His art is his medium. His medium is his message. And his message is his art. (I came up with this line all by my self ::pat on back::
Some of his old stuff.....

Heavy and yet beautiful. This guy is also responsible for the widely and perhaps over exposed Obama support poster that is out today. Doesn't that make you like him just a tad more?

Check his website. Oh to make a living off of talent....my dream job.
