This is what I am doing when I should be editing and revising my "Statement of Purpose" for my PhD application which is due in two days. Of course, I can't edit and revise my "Statement of Purpose" because I have not written it yet. Too bad I can't write my "Statement of Purpose" about watching old commercials on YouTube. I am writing my "Statement of Purpose" about being a writer/activist, which is interesting because my fascination with advertising is what indirectly (through AdBusters) led to my becoming an activist. And now I am anti-Adbusters.
Which brings me around to interesting commercial #2. (Buy our shoes!) The comment thread on that video is kinda innarestin, too. I saw this while watching American Dad tonight. Holy shit--I don't usually like that show but tonight's was an excellent James Bond parody.
[UPDATE] Mofos is lookin' at my shit (thank you) and emailing me back instead of leaving comments. Best response so far?
