Gary Turner - Momentary Lapses of Composure
"Not two months ago did I start this weblog. Actually more like a year and two months but it went incommunicado for a year until Chris Locke, RageBoy to this friends, did hurl another of his insanely crafted EGR issues wherein he suggested that, for a laugh, readers set-up their own weblogs, register with Daypop, name-drop him and he'd do the same back. I don't know whether he considers this experiment of his a success or whether in fact he was actually being serious but nonetheless, like a sheep I did as he commanded. That is why, dear reader, you will see my name at the bottom of his blogroll list. Not, I should stress, through any meritous conduct on my part. And if you care to check back to the earliest posts on this weblog you'll see just what a battle I had even getting him to do that. Knowing him he'll change his mind anyway and decide that weblogs are pass�, recite at length some obscure texts nobody has ever heard of and bin the whole notion."

Not bloody likely. Respect backatcha.

Holding Out for a Hero? Gonzo Marketing Seeks Escape from Mass Marketers' Grip
Why is it that no one believes me? Was it something I said? In this lengthy (and highly speculative) review, Andrew Goodman attempts to prove that I really did read Habermas, whereas the truth is (as I said in the book) that I really didn't. My formal education pretty much ended with Dr. Strange and Silver Surfer comics read by the light of way too much LSD. In those days, any notion of "communicative action" was like, you know, man, totally out of the question. Nice trails though. I slipped the surly bonds of the mass marketers' grip long ago, baby!

This Just In...
The Internet today reached levels of boredom never before recorded. Midas Welby, Vice President of Enterprise-Wide Perspicacity at Forrester Research said: "Uh... well, it's actually very complex. I think it's because... No wait, that can't be it... Perhaps it's that... ah, yes, now it's coming to me!" To read the entire report, stick your head up your ass and see if you can find it there. Do you about as much good as clicking on one more GODDAM URL! Fuck, I've had it. No news at 11. I quit.

The Sunday Times (London) reviews Gonzo
Book of the week: Gonzo Marketing...

Locke was named in a Financial Times group survey as "one of the top 50 business thinkers in the world" and he has written a provocative book that calls time on marketing as we know it.

At first glance it looks like more ammunition for the great anti-globalisation debate but Locke is too wily to be painted into that corner. He points out that, while he shares the concerns of environmentalists, he remains in the material world and is part of it.

"I don�t want to take sides," he says. "I don�t want to be lumped into such confining categories. I want an olive tree and a Lexus. I want a Big Mac and a jihad."

...With banner advertisements, permission marketing and other forms of "interruption" advertising proving fruitless, Locke�s argument cannot be dismissed lightly. "

Until a minute ago, I had no photos. I still have no photos to speak of. I don't even have a camera. But all these people were linking to "my photos." It was embarassing. It's still embarassing. But I'm used to that.
