Fail Harder Just Became Easier …

One of W+K’s famous callouts is ‘Fail Harder’.

This is not an excuse to come to work pissed, fuck a co-worker on the desk, smash your computer, snort drugs, piss on the floor, give Dan the finger and walk out screaming that ‘no one understands you’ … it’s simply the way they encourage their people to aim higher, reach for greater and push for better because failing harder isn’t about defeat, it’s about ambition.

Or it wasn’t until today.

Because for the rest of this week, I’m in Portland and will no doubt be subjecting my lovely colleagues to a new level of failure.

Now while that’s bad news for them, I’m sure I don’t need to remind you of the good news for you … that being for the next month, they’ll be very, very few blog posts from me.

So given that news will make you far too happy, I am going to leave you with a post that [1] will make you feel dirty and [2] make any of my PDX colleagues who are stupid enough to read this shit, wonder why the hell I’ve been asked to pop over for the week.

What am I talking about? This:

Freaky eh!

Seriously, there’s so much that could be said about this … from religious hypocrisy to the mental image violation it causes or simply the fact that there are two 59 year olds who are looking for some Christians to do the beast with two backs with.

And for the record, a friend sent me this pic.

I know that sounds a load of bollocks, but he did … however now I’m wondering why he did it and hoping to god it’s because he thought I’d find it funny rather than because he thinks I’d be interested in meeting PaulandBetty.


Anyway, if you think this is bad, you should see the thing I have in my drafts folder for posting another day.

It seriously is the weirdest – and worst – thing I’ve ever seen and don’t forget I’ve recently posted about this, this and this.

I bet you’re a quiver of excitement aren’t you.

No, didn’t think so either.

See you soon. Ta-ra.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the people at W+K Portland this week. I hope it won’t be too traumatic for them but I know it will be.

Hang in there guys, it might feel like a lifetime but it’s only a week.

Christian swingers would be trumped by planner swingers but we know even they don’t want to be with themselves.

Giving him a job was stupid. Letting him in the building was fucked up.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Finally you speak for the masses Billy.

No one cares about religious swinging, they’re all freaks and fakes anyway. But being in the mothership city? That’s going to cause done real offence right there.

Comment by Billy Whizz

thank fuck portland is taking your shit and not me. I wonder who is going to get fired for this fucked up decision. shanghai is just about far enough but portland cant deal with the sort of shit campbells presence is going to rain on pure town.

say goodbye to tranquility portland fuckers.

Comment by andy@cynic

the biggest problem with campbell being in portland is im not fucking far enough. fucking vancouver is too close for fucking comfort. time to head back to the east coast pretty fucking sharpish.

You got away with missing me the last trip and my LA jaunt, you’re not so lucky next time. And for the record, next time is November.

I don’t know which is more alarming. You in a Portland or the christian swingers. I know which your new colleagues will say.

Comment by Bazza

Well Baz, I don’t know if I should be upset that my week in Portland is viewed as more offensive than a bunch of elderly christians who like to partake in swinging.

Oh hang on, yes I do, I am and it is.

Comment by Rob

Have a lovely holiday you have earned it

Comment by Northern

Cheeky bastard.

Comment by Rob

Hang on I’m actually being nice. It’s Dodds that does irony

Comment by northern

I’m pivoting. In future, I’ll be doing bitterness and self-loathing as that fits better with my skillset and life narrative.

Comment by John

Comment by andy@cynic

Comment by andy@cynic
