Best Quote I've Read In A Long Time

I'm reading Player Piano by Kurt Vonnegut right now. Found this gem on p. 84 of the paperback version:

"Out on the edge you see all kinds of things you can't see from the center. Big, undreamed-of things—the people on the edge see them first."

Just wanted to share. Speaks volumes about being as interesting and interested as you can, and not falling into the rut of mainstream thinking (or even worse, a mainstream existence).

Hope you're having a good summer.

One Show College Gold Winners

Print campaigns are gross. To me the best idea is the label that's today's newspaper. I thought that was the best idea overall, should've been expanded upon. What do you guys think?

Final Review on Saturday

Final review time is here. I shall now attempt to clear up the ultra-simple directives you all were having so much trouble understanding last night (and that I in no way was having trouble communicating at all, whatsoever):

Drop your books off no later than 2 p.m. THIS Saturday at the guard station in the Comerica Tower (where TM is).

Come back to the lobby no later than 3:30 p.m. THE SAME AFTERNOON so I can take you upstairs and get you ready for the review. At that point the judges will have already been there looking at the work and will be ready shortly to bring you in and begin talking to you.

There. Simple, right?

Take extra special care mounting... make your work presentable. If there's a guerilla component, please include a clear, concise explanation. Remember, these people have never seen your work.

And please, if you're still getting work done, be sure to send it to us so we can help you finish. I don't want any surprises on Saturday.

Good luck.

Check this out. It's pretty good. A guy who got laid off from Arnold in Boston.
