This writer's block (http://www.livejournal.com/misc/latestqotd.bml?qid=971) was written with corporate sponsorship in mind. They've replaced my LJ was a marketing tool. Bastards.

I've used the same tags they used in the writer's block post just to be snide about it.



If I were doing marketing for Intel, I'd do so unapologetically:

Intel, when you absolutely have to email 2.5 million people about penis enlargement in less than a second.
Intel - because you need your computer to crash more effectively.
Intel - because we didn't make enough money the last time we sold you horribly outdated equipment.




And they wonder why the new generation hates the corporate sponsor game.

In a million ways, every day, we are subtly manipulated and told what to think in the name of the all mighty dollar. I get it. But I like to know when it's happening. Thanks for the 411.

Oh same here... and there are ads and marketing campaigns that are real genius and just as much works of art in their own right as what they're trying to sell.

But yeah... it's when they try to fake sincerity about real life struggles that I really get offended. My life is hard enough without these bastards using my own hopes and dreams against me.
