Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
Finally - after pulling a few duds out of my hat I found a winner who promptly responded to the winning email - The DailyLama will soon receive his signed copy of Cutting edge advertising.
Thanks again to Jim Aitchison for sending us a copy. Anyone got any suggestion on which book I shall try and get next?
I was bored this weekend so I decided it was time to spring clean a little. Now, there is a new skin for Adland - and since maintaining the code in several skins was a bit of a headache - it is also the only skin. Previous users who get funny looking MYSQL jibberish at the top of the page - go straight to USER.PHP and choose "select theme" - after selecting the only theme, you should be fine. Hopefully you wont get funny looking mysql gibberish at the top of the page tho, as I changed ID on the cookies. ;) More new stuff! (read more)

In a sensational, unprecedented development, India's premier advertising agency, Lowe Lintas, ranked number two in India, has decided to withdraw its entries from the Abby awards competition. Abby awards is considered India's most prestigious ad award show organised by the Ad Club of Bombay. This, shockingly, comes just days ahead of the three-day extravaganza scheduled for the end of this month.
Pardon me, but I feel an adrant coming on.
After throwing away the mind-numbing device in my house - otherwise referred to as a Television - I quickly grew addicted to other visual stimuli, movies on DVD. There seems to be no DVD out there without a "making of" section, showing "behind the scenes" of each film. Most of them have countless games interviews and a quick link to the movies web site as well.
Was that Alex Keshishian we saw cuddling in the corner of a London hangout with Tiger Savage? Sure the music was loud, but to whisper in someones ear, one does not need to use arms hands and be quite that close.....
We weren't going to say anything, as we actually Like Mark Wnek, unlike the rest of Londons ad community, apparently including wife Tiger. Miauw!

HINT: It sure as hell wasn't Napster.

Using star power to such real, human effect is suprising and dare I say... endearing?
Sonox.com, a music site catering to the rare and the groovy with independent label tunes in the categories as diverse as hip hop and electronica have begun advertising in Amsterdam to attract music fans. These aren't your regular ads however, as sonox doesn't deliver your regular music. (Images if you read more...)
