remember planning chappies, you need copywriters and art directors to make your deep and meaningful statements have impact.

i actually like this which fucks me off no end. as the words arent in impact font, i am guessing this had more to do with marcus than rob.

Comment by andy@cynic

rob did it.

Comment by Marcus Brown

Bastard.

Where’s Lee Harvey Oswald when I want him?

Comment by Robert

reading books.

Comment by Marcus Brown

Marcus, you are too kind … the inspiration [well, the line] came from you and you know it.

All I did was take your vision and create something magical, powerful, meaningful with it.

Fuck, this creative stuff is dead easy isn’t it?

[And I purposefully chose to NOT use impact so I could stick 2 great big fingers right in your face – not to mention Billy’s, Jemma’s and Jill’s – next time you accuse me of having a love affair with that particular font!]

Comment by Robert

Marcus … your last comment is gold. Not quite as good as AGE’s when talking about Jenna Jameson, but certainly up there.

Comment by Robert

children. im going to take my crayons and go and play by myself now you fucking bullying bastards.

Comment by andy@cynic

Byeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Comment by Rob

Thats why creatives have Mac’s, that “aaahhh” sound when it boots is the sound they make when they have an idea…

😉

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Genius Mr Mortimer … my goodness the people are on form today!

Comment by Rob

That said Rob, impact?!
Someone get this man a typography book stat.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

you just earned yourself a fuck load of ”andy points” with that last comment mortimer.

Comment by andy@cynic

Excellent.
At least we know why Rob isnt an Art Director!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

oh, great. You know that comment I put on your blog about Cake Media Mr. M? I’ve got cake people crawling all over my blog, trying to work out just who the fuck I am.

Comment by Marcus Brown

Well, the guy (Mike, I think he’s the founder) who did the talk answered on the blog himself!

Why not let them know!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Yeah, I saw. Get them off my blog. This is all your fault.

Comment by Marcus Brown

Technically I dont think it is..! But the quickest way to get rid of them is probably to give an answer.

Then theyll discuss it on mine and leave you alone after a day ir two!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Look Rob, as far as I can see, this is your fault. So sort it out.

Comment by Marcus Brown

What would you like me to do?

Comment by Rob Mortimer

children, children!! stop bickering.. marcus, you can’t have your cake and eat it too (i know, terrible).
you made the comment, so go back to rob’s blog, answer the cake boys and girls’ enquiries and moderate the comments on your own blog for a while.

Comment by lauren

I’ve done it already. Jesus.

Comment by Marcus Brown

and as far as mr smug goes – i’m assuming by the term chappies, you mean boys and girls?

and you’re right we don’t have to turn our computers on to think, but we certainly need them to read the 437 emails we get from everyone else asking when things will be finished and the instant messages sending through opinions of their own every 3 minutes.

misdirected venom? definitely. sorry bout that.

Comment by lauren

ok.. sorry marcus 🙂

Comment by lauren

I think thats a fair story Marcus. Just honesty about what you were told.

If you want me to delete a comment in future just say so.

If they were posting stuff all over your blog then let me know and I will put something up on my site criticising their terrible netiquette.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Mr M. I was joking! Oh dear. Sorry if I confused.

Comment by Marcus Brown

I have no idea what is going on with this Cake business – though I kinda like it’s all being discussed on my blog when a simple email correspondence between the two of you would be better … but lets not blame anyone here folks … what you say can always potentially cause a ‘reaction’ as my Bob Garfield post showed.

Now Marcus … say nice things to Rob as it’s not his fault and he will help all he can … and Rob, be gentle to Marcus ’cause he lives in Germany and is so bored he made a film for me today of him using a caluclator.

Now I am going to bed – because I have Andy complaining left, right and centre about something I’ve supposidly not done and quite frankly, he’s getting on my tits, ha!

Now kiss and make-up everyone – we’re in this together.

[Did I sound tough? I thought I did but you never know on these things!]

Comment by Rob

Just seen your ‘I was kidding’ comment Marcus – I thought you might be but thats the problem with this sort of technology, no bloody emotions except those crappy smiley faces.

Now have a lovely day/night and Lauren – hope your normally-foul-mouth is all sweetness and light for Mummy and Daddy.

Oh and finally, my Mum say’s “hello” to all of you – sometimes I think she loves you lot more than me. I know that’s the case where Jill is concerned, ha!

Oh, one more thing … Mr M … tomorrow my promise about the Vista bollocks will be fulfilled. I can’t promise it will be WOW, but it’ll at least prove you made me feel suitably guilty. Well done.

Comment by Rob

lol.

Ok Marcus, I wasnt sure..!

Feel free to comment on my new post before bed though Rob!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

I’m really sorry Mr. M.

Comment by Marcus Brown

Thats ok!
Its beign in Germany, it makes you too good at looking serious!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Ahhhhhh, I can sleep now!

Comment by Rob

hi mrs campbell! hi jill!!
rob, although i tone it down, if i didn’t swear around my parents, they would probably ask who i was and what have i done with their daughter. but i’ll let them know that you’re looking after their ‘delicate constitutions’… ha!

Comment by lauren

joke aside, that IS a problem I have had in the past. I’ve lived here for nearly 15 years – and according to my calculator that’s 42% of my life.

Comment by Marcus Brown

I bet, you need to add winks so we know its not totally serious:

“Get them off my blog NOW! 😉 “

Comment by Rob Mortimer

nah, not as much fun.

Comment by Marcus Brown

I know someone who works at Cake. Want me to have a word?

Comment by Will

Will, brilliant! But no, it’s all in good fun. You may well have a bit of the Dark side of the Wurst after all.

Comment by Marcus Brown

Ah Marcus, I can be a nasty man..

But I couldn’t find the Cake comments on y’blog.

Comment by Will

His posts were on my blog, which Mike replied to…then followed by a stream of Cake people going to Marcus’s blog!

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Who have now gone away. What an exciting hour and a half. (do I do a smiley now – please advise)

Comment by Marcus Brown

lol.

Optional, not compulsory.

Comment by Rob Mortimer

😉

Comment by Rob Mortimer

I like the people on this blog … and I don’t say that about half my family so either I am mad, easily pleased or desperate for friends!

Comment by Rob

Or maybe all three 😉

(see Marcus, thats how its done!)

Comment by Rob Mortimer

Read the Cake comments. Sheesh. I thought you were an angry man Marcus?

That reads like a peacekeeping mission. 😉 (for you Marcus)

Comment by Will

Just the way it was Will, just the way it was.

Comment by Marcus Brown

how about all three rob?

Comment by lauren

Having known Rob for many years, I can confirm Lauren and Rob M’s prognosis that he is indeed mad, easily pleased and desperate for friends. I only hang around because he pays me.
