contemplating chicken: various thoughts

johnleedraws:

Cover for The Pitch, AD: my man, J. Lu. 
The article is about the downfall of Kansas City’s mainstay newspaper, The Kansas City Star, and how its inability to fund reporters might create a journalistic void in the city.

"But American journalism is rooted in something like a higher calling — the idea of speaking truth to power. So when the Star lays off somebody like Dillon but keeps a writer primarily tasked with rewriting celebrity click bait from around the Web, the message to readers is that the Star isn’t serious about its civic and investigative duties.”

For the crowd in the back, I told my friends to meet me in the park and I shot reference of them walking back and forth. You know who your friends are by who will drop everything and be your ref on 30 minute’s notice.

WOW HOW SUPER SHOCKING

ah but the question is

Is there anything more shameful than being the one who cares more?

I’m so lonely I want to vomit.

Yay, go me, fun all around.

This South African commercial for Bell’s scotch is so not what I thought it was going to be. It’s a familial intergenerational look at literacy and attaining literacy as a subject in one’s own experience versus as an object of pity and projection. And yeah, it’s sweet and I teared up; I liked that he was in his community and surrounded by family on this adventure, not just an object someone projects a White Savior narrative on.

It made me think of Quvenzhané’s Maserati commercial where a compelling story was told so much so that the product is beyond secondary, where the product could be removed and then you have a great short film, except with this commercial the product actually fits more than in the aforementioned. Creative ad.

Okay sorry I didn’t “tear up” I cried through the whole thing.

"you want to wear leggings for pants"

"you want to eat cheetos for lunch"

"you want to dedicate your life to finding Atlantis"
