Ring any bells?

So there you are between bus stops. As you'd expect in busy busy London, someone presses the button to ring the bell to stop at the next stop.

Then it rings again.

And again.

And again.

It's pretty annoying. But what drives people to do it. Everyone can see who's doing it, and they just stare blankly out the window. If anyone does say anything, they're likely to get abuse in response. Interesting. I might look into this further, but I promise I won't do it myself.

More on this later.

Yeah, I know. I'm not the first person to comment on crappy 'subversive' design. Look at Chris Morris' 'Nathan Barley'. But I'm thinking about taking on a personal project to prove it's fucking easy to create - all it takes is a sense of humor, tracing paper and photoshop.... and an AVCE in Art & Design. I mean, look at this crap. Yet, it's publishable, if that's even a word. Wait until they see my Kunstmaskin To. It's going to be tonk.

More on this subject later. This is simply an introduction.

Life's hard when you're a rockstar.

Today we're off into Central London for a photoshoot. I am dressed like the dad in 1980's and 1990's films who is always so busy at his big time advertising job in the city (if not just drinking champagne and doing coke in the bathroom) that he forgets about his son's little league baseball game and arrives at the diamond last minute to catch the groundskeeper raking the field. The groundskeeper turns around and looks at the bad dad scornfully, shakes his head and gets back to work.

Something similar happened in 'Hook'. I must practise spinning my mobile phone like a cowboy with a magnum.
