Midweek Media (Lite): 3 Musketeers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d4_R1me06DY Setting: a bustling city pavilion, mid day. A twentysomething white man wearing business casual attire complete with laptop bag walks down the street. A white woman pushing a stroller/pram sees him and says hello, giving him a long once-over, implying interest. The man looks puzzled and continues on a few steps. Three women, one […]

And They Still Want Our Money

Day 4, no, 5. I think. Time has lost most of its meaning for me. I can’t remember the last time I saw another human being. I know they’re out there. I’m here and I refuse to believe I’m the only one left alive. It’s something of a miracle I have access to post as […]

Scottish PSA

(Or, Sorta Another Thursday Interruption/Midweek Media Fusion). Look, here’s the thing. For years, I’ve had this fantasy of chucking it all and moving to Inverness, Scotland. Why Inverness? I dunno, I found it lovely and think I’d really like it there for more than a ten day stint. In general, I loved my visit to […]

Midweek Media – Camel Girl

Her dialogue runs thus: I haven’t always felt comfortable with this thing. And obviously […]

Midweek Media: Deodorant for Beautiful Girls

And now for something light. Transcription: Chimey music begins playing, song is called “Pretty Baby”.

Midweek Media: “Every Child” is Synonymous with “Boy”

This ad is compliments of Lederhosen. Quick transcription: The screen starts off dark. Music begins, Also Sprach Zarathustra by Richard Strauss (2001: A Space Odyssey theme) and the screen lightens to reveal a brown haired white boy at a head-and-shoulder shot. He’s looking up as the screen brightens, and is seen to mouth “whoa” with […]

Midweek Media: Miracle Ass

Okay, I’m not going to transcribe every bloody second of this stupid ad, so I suppose this isn’t a true Midweek Media post. Long story short of it is various and sundry head and torso-less female bodies dancing, hopping, walking, vacuuming and generally gyrating around to a song which is directing folks to “shake it […]
