It's been a while since I had the chance to write here in my blog but that's another story. I'll write about what kept me so long in my next post. Today there are stranger stories afoot. I am still reeling with how stupid Bostonians must be to think that those litebrite guerilla style campaign boards were bombs planted by terrorists. I think that if the same thing happened in Los Angeles there wouldn't have been any ruckus because we are so pop culture savvy and aware of stuff like that out here. Back east in cities like Boston and New York people are not as aware about pop culture. Just no time for it really. And there's an elitist attitude in Boston anyway about television and pop culture in general. It's just not how they are built. I lived in New York for many many years and it's the same thing. I guarantee you that if the campaign happened in New York City there would be bomb squads and media everywhere. And that's exactly what the people over at Cartoon Network and Turner Broadcasting were hoping for. That's why they'd never try that in LA. Now MILLIONS of people know what "Aqua Teen Hungerforce" is. I am so envious of the person who came up with this idea. Just brilliant. Now I have to come up with something to top it when "Fluffer and Nutter" finally get animated. Maybe I'll just silkscreen my characters on big black bomb-like bowling balls with lit wicks on them.
