Musing: Commercials

Commercials are always an amazing way to check your reflexes, and see how degenerated the world around you has become, because you’re a paragon of morality and cleverness in a landscape where the trees only bear Annoying Oranges.

For example, take that one commercial… you know the one; it has a catchy jingle, toys and is aimed at children?

Not specific enough?

What about the ladybug that eats Orbeez?

You know what sticks in my head after listening to and watching that commercial? The way it quickly glosses over the lyric that not only does it eat the Orbeez, but can poop them as well. They continue on is if the words were never mentioned, and it…bugs me.

Have you seen any commercials that are a bit too casual? ,

Musings: My muses.

Everybody develops a post like this every once in a while, seeking to answer the question of “Where do you get your inspiration/Who inspires you?

Well here it is:

Character development comes from Dick Figures (a wonderful little YouTube web-show), in which everyone is an ass in some way or another.

The variety in art styles comes from Weebl (the manic and catchy voice of British absurdism), who has a variety of people animate his videos.

Story development comes from Baman Piderman (another show on the same channel as Dick Figures), Weebl, and Salvador Dali (one of the more famous Surrealist painters of the 20th century). Dali, because the comics and art are all based on random ideas I have; Weebl, because I strive to make the story latch onto you for days on end; and Baman Piderman, because I want the story to be engaging, yet simple.

Weebl: http://www.weebls-stuff.com (Witness all his crazy-catchy songs!!)

Baman Piderman: http://bit.ly/LmNlle (wonderfully simple, and dreadfully cute)

Musings: Hygiene

How you ever seen a commercial that advertises a good product with a baffling feature? I think the worst I’ve seen so far is one for tampons that come individually wrapped in resealable  packages. Now I may not be an expert in this field, but I don’t think many women save/reuse their old tampons.
