Whatever You Want. Consequences ft Kanye West and John Legend.

John himself once claimed a "ticket to ride" as a Lennonism for a prostitute that has been given a clean bill of health and is ready to start tricking again. Sounds like he's talking about this blog.


Flying Low.

Imagine getting hit upside the head by the Hull on an airplane. Is it called hull? Not that it matters when a wheel runs over you sand castle. 

"Oops upside your head. I said oops upside your head." 

This saves me time.

Now I don't have to grow a beard this winter. Pheeww. I too, wish it where made for children. 

Nightmare on Elm Street 2010.

I just want to clarify something. Freddy Kruegar scared the living sh*t out of me as a kid. I remember going to a cool kids sleep over party in elementary school and I was forced to watch it in order to keep my integrity as an awesome kickball player (correlation still unknown). The next day, I made the decision to stay awake for the rest of my life. I was unsuccessful, but I remember having an indepth conversation with my mom who assured me that I would not dream as long as I slept with a toothbrush in my hand (another correlation unknown). On a side note,,,this movie also ruined Edward Scissor Hands for me. 

But yea. Here is the remake coming to a theatre near you. Just in case you forgot it (as you can see, I did not). It's done by Michael Bay. Original ideas are so overrated

"...look at your hands. They're as soft as a womans. What is it you do? What do you make?"

I make ads b*tches. Sh*t is going down on this show. 

Twister Princesses.

We have seen this before on this blog. People plaiyg with Disney classics to tarnish thier reps. Well, here it is again- but done well. Arial is all like...."I'm gonna shove this thing-a-ma-bo straight through your heart. It's ok...I want Mooooooooooore"

Check out all out all of the deadly Princess make overs here. Oh and by the way....one could assume that this is doing of Marvel, who recently got it's hand on Disney. That's not true, but I wish it was. 

Designer vs Client (robots with British accents).

Hot Chicks: Amanda Seyfried

I'm not into blonds, but every since Mean Girls, Amanda Seyfried has kinda rubbed me the right way for quiet some time not. And after seeing her on Big Love religiously (see what I did there?), I have kinda got a crush on her. She is sorta goofy looking but in that cute adorable way. And she seems eccentric. And that makes her hot.

The Pee Pee Game.

Okay. Let me be clear here. I'm all for NOT drinking and driving. It's an unnecessary evil that can ruin the life of innocent as well as the guilty. But if any agency, client or person in general thinks that a road, painted on the inside if a urinal in the men's bathroom at a bar with the line "Don't Drink and Dirve" is the best way to reach a bunch of drunks...they need to get slapped. Besides enticing the drunkard to test his own alcohol level and draw his own conclusion with a built in urinal game, your pretty much putting ideas in peoples heads. And when there done, you can give them a prize. Active reminder indeed....

One thought at a time.

Root for CHICAGO 2016

I Want It: Dockers (maybe).

Ok, so I have been avidly ignoring the whole "docker fad." I don't really have a reason why, other than.....if I purchased a pair, I would feel like a complete douche bag. Or...a child. But you know, I still appreciate the idea. And my mind might change. This post, might be it changing. Cause if I did buy a pair....these would be what I'd buy.

Two Years in Counting.

So…yesterday marked the 2 year anniversary of this blogging thing I have been doing. So in honor of that I just want to take a minute to describe the birth of Prostituted Thoughts. Cause at the very least…I owe this blog that.

Sept 27 2007 is when I started my blogging career. It started out as something a lot different. I was in portfolio school in Chicago. I worked during the day to pay bills, and I went to school at night. Now, I always joke that I have done every menial career known to man, but in Chicago I was running Office Services at a trading firm, which if you are not aware, that is code for “everybody else’s bitch.” I did everything from reloading the coffee machines every morning (cause a trader without coffee is just some dangerous sh*t in general) to fixing copier machines to watching the employees kids on “bring your kid to work and drop him off with the Office Services Guy” day. It was…well, it wasn’t ideal for someone who decided to commit to doing creative work for the rest of his life. So this blog was basically, my sounding board for that point in my life. A place I could go to and write about anything-literally. I mean, if you look back at the early years- there was no point to this blog really. It was scattered brained. It was very personal. Lacked writing style…design style. It was really ridiculous on purpose, because my life was just that far away from it. I wasn’t doing what I liked. And like, everything I didn’t do. It was a hot mess. But it was my hot mess- a mess of daily relief.

Perhaps some examples will clarify...

I know what you thinking…."this sh*t is still unorganized.” And you get a gold star for being right. Believe it or not…it’s on purpose. I got my first Junior AD job in NY and I brought my hot mess baby with me. I discovered that there really is an art to writing a blog. And a responsibility. I mean…if you are going forward on the path you choose and allegedly growing as an individual, it makes sense that you take you work with you on that journey. In my opinion, everything you do in life should be on par or above the level you are. So with my growth and accomplishment, I tried to evolve this baby. Life is bigger than my personal opinion. But if your blog is not without your personal opinion or touch….what is it exactly? So I decided to find a healthy balance between the 2. Can I write on this thing daily…in an organized fashion and have it still peak my interest? When I delved into that thought, I realized that there was a reason I wrote like I did back in Chicago. I was all over the place because that’s how I am as an individual. I mean….that’s why I picked this career after all. It allows me to look at 10 thousand things a day and use it to my advantage to make other things. I find everything intrinsically interesting. And I’ve never met a person I didn’t learn anything from. However, there is a limit. I like to land gently on the foaming head of multiple crisp ideas and ways of thinking daily, and then choose which frothy thought I want to delve into more deeply. Oh yeah, and I do have an opinion about it. But I try (maybe sometimes not hard enough) to stay neutral. But it’s that scatter brain mentality that makes me who I am as an individual and a creative person.

And hence….Prostituted Thoughts. The blog about everything, but really about nothing in particular. It’s a selfish endeavor really. On one end, I present you with ideas and thoughts for learning and entertainment purposes. But on the other end…I get to look all this crap up and feed it to you. It’s a deadly cycle, really. You [the reader], keep me updated and sane. I need all this randomness for motivation and you need it….well, I’m not sure why you need it. Just remember…you do.

Ok., this was longer than I wanted it to be. And I apologize for that. Let’s wrap it up. In conclusion….I just want to thank all you readers. It’s one thing to f*ckin ramble one and on about nothing on the internet daily. But it’s a completely different thing to matter. That’s why I was having a new header break down last week. There really was a new era on it’s way. Let's hope there are no dramatic changes.

***Fingers crossed***

-FIN, now back to your regularly scheduled programs...



Jay teaches media queen Oprah how to rap*. It's kinda like hearing your parents useing slang.....

*(waiting for my mom to call me thinking she is hip to death now that she knows who Jay Z is).


....you're welcome. Perfect image to start off a good weekend. The man-pampers.

"All Porn is Gay Porn."

Ummmm, so this past weekend the Republicans held a conference called the Values Voter Summit. One speaker by the name of Michael Schwartz, had some valuable insight about....homosexuality. Watch the entire video above if you have the time. But if not...just fast forward to 4:33 where you get this little nugget:

"And one of the things that he [his friend] said to me, that I think is an astonishingly insightful remark. He said, 'all pornography is homosexual pornography because all pornography turns your sexual drive inwards. Now think about that. And if you, if you tell an 11-year-old boy about that, do you think he’s going to want to go out and get a copy of Playboy? I’m pretty sure he’ll lose interest. That’s the last thing he wants'."

And now watch Jon Stewart's response....cause I refuse to waste typing and brain power to explain the absurdity of this statement. Enjoy.

Race and Google.

Now...I understand how google works. So I'm not gonna do that whole "google is racist" thing. However, knowing that fact makes this screen grab just a little bit more disparaging...


Covering September 3.

Yea...Lil Kim looks amazing!!!

I saw Lamar Odom at a club the other day. That's all I have to say. This cover corresponds to my celebrity siteing. Oh, I also saw Liev Schreiber in Union Square yesterday buying a $300 watch. Go ahead...be jealous. 
Love Madmen...and woman. I already miss Joan. 
Complex has a different cover concept. 

"That kid, he has a spark...he is a pure account man."

"...and what is that job about?"

"I dunno, it's about listening to people and never saying what's on your mind."

"...no, it's about letting things go- so you can get what you want."

Runaway. Georgia Anne Muldrow

Talk about throwback images. Songstress Goergia Anne delivers a seriously sublime video. Using the imagery and style of that from 70s and 80s cartoon shows, this video blows my mind. I'm in the same boat at Craig....I'm floored that this hasn't been done before. It's a little bit of genius. 

PS Im really glad I stumbled on this, cause I had noting for throwback thursday today....EXCEPT this weird mood I'm in- inwhich I watch the Dick Van Dyke show on Netflix every night before I go to bed. I know, I know...I'm a wierdo

Nike Tag.

This is pretty clever. I especially like the guys face in the beginning. He's like "Muuuther F*cker." And that's what makes this spot work...those little truths. It's sad that he can't even catch the girls though. When you can't catch the dudes in tag...you gotta go for a girl. Generally speaking...they are slow. <==== also a truth.

BluePrint 3...eh, you knew it was coming.

You knew I was gonna talk about it. Eight albums after his supposed retirement (sorry, still a little heated about that). But I have listened to the whole CD multiple times so I could post my favorite tracks this morning. The CD is....different from what he ususally puts out. But whereas I was totally not into it, which is partially the fault of tracks that have been getting out to the public as singles...now I realize that there are indeed some gold nuggets in the mix. Here are a few.

That last track, Venus vs Mars really make me put my head down and do what I call "the NY sway."  If you live in NY...you know exactly what I'm talking about. That kinda slow head bob side-to-side, mean muggin cause no one can touch you when Jigga is on. All in all, a good album. Is it the Black Album? No. But is it better than Kingdom Come? Yes. And if you ask me....the entirety of life should be weighed on this scale. 

And to end this post off, I leave you with one of most favoritest Jay Z tracks of all time....

P.S. You don't know how annoyed I am that I couldn't find matching youtube videos.

I am not familiar with this phrase and to tell the truth, it doesn't make much sense.  But the woman coanchors face right after the verbal "F" assault is priceless. And Ernie looks clueless as to what he just did (a few to many in the dressing room perhaps).

Copy Writing on Amazon.com.

Being a jackass via the internet is always fun. You know...when people get all gutsy when they are infront of a computer screen. It's a certain level of douchbaggery I'm trying to describe right now. Like...an internet douchbag or a "Net-bag." I'm not sure. But sometimes people really are clever, and it kinda crosses into the real of real writing. It's witty and pulls you into a completely different place. It's fun. 

Well, I discovered a string of this type of writing on amazon, over the flyest of wolf shirts of all times. Here is one of many product reviews that literally made me laugh out loud. 

"This item has wolves on it which makes it intrinsically sweet and worth 5 stars by itself, but once I tried it on, that's when the magic happened. After checking to ensure that the shirt would properly cover my girth, I walked from my trailer to Wal-mart with the shirt on and was immediately approached by women. The women knew from the wolves on my shirt that I, like a wolf, am a mysterious loner who knows how to 'howl at the moon' from time to time (if you catch my drift!). The women that approached me wanted to know if I would be their boyfriend and/or give them money for something they called mehth. I told them no, because they didn't have enough teeth, and frankly a man with a wolf-shirt shouldn't settle for the first thing that comes to him.

I arrived at
Wal-mart, mounted my courtesy-scooter (walking is such a drag!) sitting side saddle so that my wolves would show. While I was browsing tube socks, I could hear aroused asthmatic breathing behind me. I turned around to see a slightly sweaty dream in sweatpants and flip-flops standing there. She told me she liked the wolves on my shirt, I told her I wanted to howl at her moon. She offered me a swig from her mountain dew, and I drove my scooter, with her shuffling along side out the door and into the rest of our lives. Thank you wolf shirt.

Pros: Fits my
girthy frame, has wolves on it, attracts women
Cons: Only 3 wolves (could probably use a few more on the 'guns'), cannot see wolves when sitting with arms crossed, wolves would have been better if they glowed in the dark.

Go ahead...treat yourself to some more
