    Calling all N.Y. Adlisters and perhaps a few Adlanders

      Networking/gathering This coming Thursday - the 19th of October 2000 - at eight p.m. (that's 20.00 hours) Dabitch is in New York City hanging with a bunch of New York Adlisters at the White Horse Tavern.
    The White Horse is conveniently located at the corner of Hudson and 11th Street and is for those of you who didn't know - the place where Dylan Thomas drank himself to death. We think it's apropriate.
    Dylan himself might be there - as it is said his ghost occasionally returns to rotate his favorite corner table.
    Be there - and wear something terribly ad-related to be recognised. :) (I'll have blue white and black hair - I think you'll spot me!)

      contests netspirit - user number 69 - is the lucky guy/gal who won the signed "Hey Whipple" book. I've sent netspirit an email and will mail the book off as soon as I get a reply. Netspirit is shy gal/guy with no user information or extras - so I'm just guessing that he/she is in the states (the real email ends with .com) So far There have been british american and romainian winners of the competitions here. For all you others - better luck next time.
    The usual smallprint - if there is no reply by next friday - I'll pick another random number, because somebody's gotta win this book.

      announcement Mark Waites at Mother points out that:
    "Mother has what could be the perfect compliment to your gossips corner...yourstruthfully.com the anonymous e-mail forwarding service.

    Now anyone contributing to your site can hide like a little wimp."
    The clever part is - you can email from there anonymously and receive replies to your box! Very cool toy! Go play!

      advertising jokes littlebean writes "An account director gets into a black cab with two bin liners.

    "'Ello, mate," says the cabbie. "Just been sacked then?"

    "No", says the account director. "I announced that I was leaving to set up my own agency, and they had me escorted off the premises."

      Gossip It's been making the round and you all want to see it -truth in advertising the film, here. Hilarious take on how life would look if we said what we really meant.
    Avion Film Co. in Toronto produced this film that Tim Hamilton directed, and wrote together with David Chiavegato.
    These are just two parts - more are on their way and Michael Schwartz at Avion promises to give us a nudge when the rest of it is posted on the net.

      announcement Back in the days when Adland was over at the url:unltd.tm (a URL that I own but can't move here due to Turkmenistanian paperwork - don't ask) I'd get hundreds of mails a weeek of gossip and Badland ads. Thats why I built this.
    Theoretically - or my little daydream here - if enough gossip happy people sign up as users and the more active ones ask to be goldcardusers, this page will "generate itself".
    Anyone working in advertising hears some gossip not meant for general knowledge in any given week. You could post it here as news - others might want to know.
