I'm so sick of ads



As the title says,
Advertisements, in all their horrible, numerous, and wicked forms.
On tv, on the net,on the bus, on our clothes, our bags, our underwear, our cars, our hats, our glasses, our watches, our language, and our thoughts.
Boom boom boom boom, in our face, in our hands, in our hair....everywhere!
And no break what so ever.
Can't we have a day or a month where ads are prohibited?
I know the Internet is based on ads , and without it , the net would collapse, but surely we can spare a day. I'd gladly temporarily remove ads from my blog and not get my infinitesimal revenue.
But the thing is we can't.
We can not do it.
It's impossible.
In a world where we can make flying robotic seagulls, we cannot halt the advertising machine.
We've become an ad ourselves, our experiences with locations, interactions, and memories,
We are a fragment of a massive marketing campaign.
I'm not saying conspiracy, the purpose is to rule over the world no.
I'm saying this ad sum, the purpose is to be, to exist, to gain market share, has penetrated every single facet of our lives.
Maybe halting the ad machine is not beneficial. If we strip away our ads, we strip away our humanity, our history.
Look at Nazi Germany, they had branding, of the logo. Or Soviet Russia, or any other nation with their flags held up high.
Advertising is a symbol, its a constant pursuit of some second of attention, that individually is useless, but after doors are closed, blankets covered, they begin to have an impact universally.
You have a chat with your friends, and one girl brings up a subject about... Let's say, soup.
What comes to your mind?
Maybe a certain chunky variety ? Or some mushroom ? Asian instant noodles?
Even home made recipes are ads for the chefs at home.

Sigh

It's everywhere and it's unstoppable, hate it or love it.

I'm tired, so I think I'll sleep now, good night or good something , where ever you are when you are reading this. What are your thoughts on ads? Can it be stopped? Should it be stopped?

As a guy who works in public relations and is heavy on the ad side of things, I'm getting to see some sides to it.

Bud out

My first post

Yo sup peeps
those guys who are reading this
well allow me to introduce my self
I am
BUD MALONEY
aka Junior Mint

how I got that nickname is a funny story
after seeing a seinfeld episode I really wanted a junior mint, but where I live, doesn't have junior mints, so I'd keep thinking of ways to get junior mints form some where, but until now I never got them...sadly
so my friends decided to call me Junior mint
until now I have never tried a junior mint.

So let me tell you what this blog is going to be about.
I will comment on various technologies and games
and maybe try and review some. I think there are a lot of crappy reviews of games out there that aren't honest and aren't even critical enough. after reading a review I'm still wondering if I should buy this game or not.

So I'm going to give some reviews of games I've played and save you the trouble of thinking of buying it or not. now you might think...why should I trust this guy?
well i'll be very honest of the rev…

Transformers Movies Are Way More Interesting When You See Optimus Prime As A Villain!

"When you hear Optimus respond to Ironhide in the first movie "Ironhide, you know we don't harm humans , what is with you ?" Now you know why, it's because he wants to keep all able slaves alive."

It's general information that the Autobots are the heroic ones, the protagonists, the saviors, the "good guys". Well I'm here to tell you that you could be getting it all wrong.

"What are you talking about Bud? Megatron is the bad guy, it says so on the box."
"The Decepticons are evil, they want to kill people"
Are you sure about that?

For this article I'm looking at the Michael Bay Transformers Movies 1, 2, 3, 4.

We start this movie hearing about the "Allspark", how it is magical and brought life to Cybertron and eventually war. As the audience we believe what Optimus is saying in the intro. Even when he sees Sam , he tells him the following:
