Brands are beautiful things. A brand is a community.

The textbook says that a brand is an owned thought, an association. I would say that it is a community, a common emotion, a belonging. To be loyal to a brand is to be a part of a community.

Basically, brands bring people together. But that is not really all.

Rob asked me to write a paper on how ads make the world a better place. I think that they do, I really do.

So I will be slowly crafting my argument.

A better world: brought to you by our sponsor, brands are love

Some people find advertising to be an annoyance. It is always comming between them and the final vote on Survivor. Or making them wait before their online movie or game loads. Or stairing back at them from the side of the street, or a bench, or bus stop, or pregnant womans belly. Some people hate advertising. They see it as more than annoying, they see it as harmful.

I see it as a possable future paycheck. But my intrest in advertising is not purely monatary, I see something else in it entirley. There are many faults that can be found in advertising, and social questions that can be raised regarding its form up until now. I also know that for all it's faults, advertising is a generally good endevour with many social benifits. In short, advertising is good.

One arguement against advertising is that it is invasive ----

There are many reasons to dispise advertising, or at least, many reasons have been brought to the table. Some say that advertisements degrade women by using them as sexual objects ect. But what do these various possabilities about the medium say about it?

We work like a horse.
We eat like a pig.
We like to play chicken.
You can get someone's goat.
We can be as slippery as a snake.
We get dog tired.
We can be as quiet as a mouse.
We can be as quick as a cat.
Some of us are as strong as an ox.
People try to buffalo others.
Some are as ugly as a toad.
We can be as gentle as a lamb.
Sometimes we are as happy as a lark.
Some of us drink like a fish.
We can be as proud as a peacock.
A few of us are as hairy as a gorilla.
You can get a frog in your throat.
We can be a lone wolf.
But I'm having a whale of a time!

You have a riveting web log
and undoubtedly must have
atypical & quiescent potential
for your intended readership.
May I suggest that you do
everything in your power to
honor your encyclopedic/omniscient
Designer/Architect as well
as your revering audience.
As soon as we acknowledge
this Supreme Designer/Architect,
Who has erected the beauteous
fabric of the universe, our minds
must necessarily be ravished with
wonder at this infinate goodness,
wisdom and power.

Please remember to never
restrict anyone's opportunities
for ascertaining uninterrupted
existence for their quintessence.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

Best wishes for continued ascendancy,
Dr. Howdy

P.S. One thing of which I am sure is
that the common culture of my youth
is gone for good. It was hollowed out
by the rise of ethnic "identity politics,"
then splintered beyond hope of repair
by the emergence of the web-based
technologies that so maximized and
facilitated cultural choice as to make
the broad-based offerings of the old
mass media look bland and unchallenging
by comparison."
