As I write this, I'm sitting on a third-floor deck of a house on St. George Island, Florida, looking out at the Gulf of Mexico as the sun rises. The sea is calm, almost glassy. There's no chill breeze, no sound except for the gentle lapping of the waves. The horizon… Read full post »
Advertising may be the ultimate "what have you done for me lately?" business. You're only as good as your last idea and, if you slip, there's always somebody--some other copywriter, some other agency--ready to give you an extra shove and walk over your prostrate body to show the client somethi… Read full post »
When I was seven, I was going to be a poet. I'd just written my first poem, entitled "My Boy Al and the Egg"; it was based a story I'd read about Thomas Edison. I was asked to recite it at a second-grade assembly. The applause was intoxicating. I could look forward/… Read full post »
I have to admit: as skeptical as I am about religion and politics, when it comes to relationships, I'm a complete naif. I am, in fact, I'm a bit of a pollyanna; it's against my nature to see the bad or deceptive in people.
For example: big ad agencies are breeding… Read full post »
There's a great scene in "Far Away Places," Episode 6 of Season 5 of Mad Men, in which Roger Sterling and his wife Jane are about to drop acid at the end of a dinner party at Jane's psychiatrist's house. "How long does it last?" asks Roger.
I could have told him… Read full post »
So Donald Trump has decided he won't be available to drive the pace car at 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.

So Poison frontman and reality TV star Bret Michaels, he of the ubiquitous bandana and dueling groupies, has had a massive brain hemorrhage. As of this writing, he's still in critical condition at an undisclosed hospital, but he's been "awake and chatty."
That's good--even thou… Read full post »
I admit it: I'm a college sports curmudgeon. I hate the way we've turned our colleges and universities into farm systems for the NBA and the NFL. The money involved is obscene; in its annual ranking of most valuable college basketball programs, Forbes says the Tarheels of North C/… Read full post »
In so many ways, it's like any other television commercial you've worked on for the last thirty years. You dream up some spot ideas and pitch them to the client. (The client chooses the idea that wasn't your favorite.) You bid the job and hire the production company. (You don't have… Read full post »
It's a familiar refrain on sports talk radio in Indianapolis: "The national media's been dissing us all year! Finally, we're gonna show them all!"
This is boring, but true. Keyshawn Johnson called the Colts "the worst 14-0 team ever." That's a ridiculous statement on its face. The… Read full post »
Every year, I make a mix CD of my favorite songs. And nobody plays the damn thing all the way through.
Okay, right. I know you’re the exception. Seriously, you are. Dude. It’s okay, really.
It’s just that, for some time now, it’s struck me how often I’m talking to… Read full post »
