towards switchboards and stations

long ago i gave up my quest to write some marketing propaganda that said “if we can land a man on the moon surely we can get you to buy this product.” yes, i stole the line from beulah, i am obsessive like that. today, i found a new quest. my goal is to have some marketing propaganda go to print and/or web that says, “buy X it rocks the casbah.”

all props will go to the clash, i promise.

sometimes when i do my first drafts, i’ll leave my rock the casbahs and landing the man on the moons in the copy, just to see if anyone’s paying attention. sadly, someone is always paying attention. but i get a good, hearty laugh out of it.

    “…land on a man on the moon…”


    I’m not laughing at you, I’m laughing with you.

    You are laughing, aren’t you?

    How much linear force is needed to rock a casbah, anyway?

    In seriousness, you have struck a chord in me; at my high school’s “frosh-in/frosh-out” dance, I very loudly sang along with that song, except that I had no clue what the lyrics were. You’d be surprised how fast you drop in the clique ratings when people hear you singing, off-key I might add, “Rock the Cash Bar”.

    I still cringe.
