And if anyone needs another reminder of the value of value – especially those agency heads who regard process as more important than creativity and those clients who think of everything as a cost, rather than as an investment – read this.

You’re being uncharacteristically concise these days Robert. Excellent point though and the Harrison Ford interview is fantastic. I’d forgotten how good that was.
Dare I ask how the judging is going? Would I be wrong in assuming “the usual”?

Comment by George

I think we all know the answer to that one George.

Can you stop encouraging him to go back to writing his long rubbish George.

Comment by DH

Who cares, no one reads his posts short or long.

When’s Andy back from holiday? He’s the only reason I come here.

Comment by Billy Whizz

Another week Billy. Hang in there, he will be touched by your devotion.

Comment by George

Yes, I know – it’s alarming me, but I also have the advantage of knowing what the upcoming posts are and I can assure you, this ‘concise’ blogging is definitely coming to an end.

As for the judging, well yesterday there were 136 entries of which 10 – in my opinion – were genuinely good. By that I mean their effectiveness was driven by insight and creative brilliance rather than simply being in the right place, at the right time with the lowest-common-denominator offer.

That said, the ‘judge debate’ about who gets the awards is today and I foresee a lot of arguing and given I’m seeing Slash tonight, I’m well up for the fight.

Comment by Rob

Slash is in Shanghai? That’s about the most fucked up thing I’ve heard since I found out they were letting you in there.

Are you the google threat?

Just a long bored surfer. See what I did there?

Comment by John

I did John. Very clever.

Comment by George

Is this the reason nottingham forest didn’t even make the playoffs this year Rob?

Comment by DH

Short, sweet and important Robert. Not unlike yourself, at least on a good day.

Comment by Lee Hill

Has Rob ever had one of those good days Lee? Pretty sure he hasn’t.

Comment by Bazza

Yes Lee, when did that happen? Are you ill? Or drunk?
