    mon d-day

    they say that winners never quit
    and quitters never win
    but my friend who quit work today
    can't hide that massive grin.

    as the playbacks played back - it was dark, it was night
    the sides had been picked: go go, start the fight
    it's a blitz -- it's a taste test in aspirin based fusion
    standing knee-deep in this heated illusion.

    hits spinning loudly round quarter to three
    he's a paranoid lad, he won't tolerate me
    if the flips would materialize, there'd be naught to fear
    and her mind foams up like the head on her beer.

    superkeen on my daily routine

    An anticon-tinental breakfast starts the day off right:
    Perfect for the most discerning appetite.

    Mid-day realization that all my headlines are bad,
    So i get some pointers from an old comrade.

    Finally slap down some copy when push comes to shove,
    And spend the rest of the day falling in punch-crunk-love.

    rock out with your ad clock out

    timesheets timesheets, why doth thou torture me so
    with your dockets and numbers and complex codes?
    you rudely expose my true calling as a creative ho,
    paid to write enough silly lines to pave all life's roads.

    my professional days are defined by billable time:
    this week i've been assigned a good fifty seven hours,
    to pen whiny self-indulgent little poems that rhyme,
    i mean, clever one-liners about torque and horsepower.

    so every monday i struggle with the formidable Ad-Clock
    and pray that this week my time sheets don't get rejected
    after all, along with all the brilliance and eurekas! and smart talk
    a little (i mean, alot) of thumb-twiddling better be expected.

    for those in need of distraction on a rainy day - voila, a brief chicago photo-essay

    lusting after tractors like a soviet filmmaker

    killer parties

    Image hosted by Photobucket.com
    toronto seemed tired last night
    hoodies zipped high, ponytails tight
    everyone putting up a fight fight fight
    to be seen by scenesters on the scenester scene
    to look hot while trying to feel the music and preen
    to be the biggest constantines fan on the block
    and in doing so, ignore some other saviors of rock.
    beer-soaked witticisms shouted by a scratchy voiced geek
    and when he exposed toronto as a soulless scenester town --
    it made my week.

    the review from here.

    My my, let me update on what is new

    Well, i finally got my annual review
    Yeah, the one that was 3 decades overdue
    Of course, what they told me, I'm not sposed to say,
    And though i should live by the ad-motto: "Self-serve, don't Obey"
    I won't breach confidence: instead i'll put it this way:

    I am no longer a junior writer, it's true--
    But i still make less than you do.

    Gossip's still loud, Complaints are still muffled
    And all the creative teams have been re-shuffled
    My time pushing pills and selling laptops is done
    And the era of verbally pimping Cars has begun
    Wanna know my experience driving? How about none?!

    So there's my brief update - life has been in flux
    I'm a real big writer making real big bucks
    To weave glorious fantasies about sedans and trucks.
