A - gen - SEE!!

Lets see, where were we?Nowhere?Ok Cool.Lets begin then!

I have just come back from an agency.An agency is a place where a lot of people sit with cool hairstyles and a lot of shimmy doing nothing mostly besides pretending to be crazily busy.There are people coming and going all the time and cool (where have I heard that word before??hmm) things scribbled on most cubicles.

This is what I saw on one:
NO SHIT.
NO SHOWER.
FULL POWER.
24 HOUR.
Boom Shankar.

Besides this there was also the standard "I dont suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it" and blah de blah de blah.Creative. Right??

Thats what I thought.Then this jarhead along with another bucket decides to sit with me and asks me what ideas do I have about the client they are presenting.This was a "brief" meeting, where you get an idea as to what you should do; but no!!YOU(as in me that is) are the creative guy!!Say something creative!Come up with something that would rewrite advertising with ivory fountainpens( do they even make them??).And all that when I dont know jackpoop about the company. Came up with some spotaneous hogwash and he seemed happy.End of meeting.

Have to go back day after with some killer shit.Otherwise Wise Gonzalez asks the client to invest in some other station.
Two questions:
a)when Client A has to advertise in Station B, why the heck should some gook decide the fate of copywriter C?

b)why is Maggi available only in Masala and Chicken?(lets not even begin on Atta!!)

Third question (Optional)

c)what are tags anyways all about?

P.S.-I have a music player.It plays Mere Yaar by Advaita.Tell me how you like it!!:)

Laters.

Good question - what are tags for anyway?

Scribblers Inc said...

calliopia:Its bloggers way of using forwards I guess!!:)

Anindita said...

Tags allow us to quickly search through posts. Plus they are great way to get more hits to your site via a search engine. :)

P.S. I like your music player and the song...!!! :)

cheers.

Scribblers Inc said...

anindita:that I knowna!!whats the "I tagged you and you tagged me" jazz all about??

S said...

wtf is "boom shankar" anyway?

S said...

err, some weird slang that I'm not aware of?

Scribblers Inc said...

S:Dunno, was just quoting.Now that you mention it, I will check it up and do a post on it!!Sounds kinda stoned and gyp dont you think??

Swayam said...

Ques 1)duh!!
ques 2)can i pass the question..
ques 3)*staring at the ceiling*

neha said...

Each player of this game starts with 6 weird things about you. People who get tagged need to write a blog of their own 6 weird things as well as state the rule clearly. In the end, you need to choose 6 people to be tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave a comment that says you are tagged in their comments and tell them to read your blog.

these rules keep changing though!!

u kno wat i was thinkin of media and all as my career..m sooo happy i changed my mind!yay!!!

Anindita said...

Well, Neha kind of described it well! :)

If you have been tagged in any post, you do the honours, answer all the above mentioned questions and find yourself a couple more jobless people (:P) who will answer the same set of questions and then forward it to others by means of tagging it!! :P

Enjoy!!

Solitaire said...

A tag is just a post that someone mandates you to do with your own perspective on the same topic.

The 6 quirks one is only an example.

BTW, in the 80's, Maggi was available in Prawn, Capsica, and Sweet and Sour flavors apart from Chicken and Masala.

I dunno why they discontinued them. Sweet and Sour was my all time favorite.

hey scribblers inc
nice blog withthinable insight :P and as far as the questions r concerned hmmm maggi is maggi after all y does innovation the actual taste of it???
and tags are forwards which one passes on to other thn to other to enlarge the link and also is way to know each other better :) i hve done quite a tags and the songz good dude :)
cheers

Preeti said...

I kinda like tags...It's fun, helps when iv got nothin to write about, gives an insight on the person and it is really interestin to see different ppl answer the same tag in different ways...im gonna be doin 'another' tag soon...and im kinda excited...some of 'em r plain silly like some love tag or something, but the ones wth questions r kinda witty :)

Cudnt listen to the song here at work...will gt hme n do that!

ani said...

i'll start off by saying the music is really good..

and i should agree by saying tags are another way of forwards.. chain mails.. and this also allows more hits to ur site..

but it also helps a person to think so much about once's life..you know taking time to think of oneself to answer.. even if it seems a bunch of ridiculous questions.. but then just because you are writing them down .. you would try to be realistic about it and try to achieve them.. you also get to know the person..

and also like preeti said.. it also gives you good topics to write about..

Scribblers Inc said...

swayam:I like staring at the ceiling too..but most of the people in my office think its a bad idea when they are questioning me...

neha:media aint that bad...gets taxing occasionally..just like an overtly topped pizza!!:)

anindita:would make sure you make it to my jobless hall of fame :)

Scribblers Inc said...

solitaire:Dude...where the heck are those days??Guess I missed more than the standard Guns n Roses and Woodstock...:(

Mad Orchid:glad that you think my blog has "withthinable insight :P ".Hope thats like a good thing!!:)

Scribblers Inc said...

Preeti:From what you are saying,tags are great I guess!!:)

P.S.-Do listen to it and temme how you liked it!!:)


Ani:Glad you liked the song.And thanks for that insight on tags!!thanks for passin by!!:)

AaYuShI said...

Tags..they are for the times when you have no fucking shit to fill your posts with.So then you do the tags! :| :D

I loved the track ! Agency sounds interesting.If it is all about doing nothing,then maybe I have been doing the same thing for years :). Nice entertaining post Sir.Mast !!

Shikha Bhatnagar said...

Anindita said...

Passionate said...

ha ha...Agency thingy..... Boom Shankar :)

Boom Boom....the best thing about the blog is the name itself "Boom Shankar"

Divkiran said...

Nice one...I now its not maggi's tag line but I'm loving it :)

Boom Shankar is actully a phrase used by sadhus who pray to lord shiva...just before they light a chillum...lol

A) cuz everyone needs a bakra they can slaughter

B)maggi is still available in Curry and tomato flavor too

C)Tags---ah well, thanks to your blog and the following comments, now I also know what they are :)

humbl devil said...

question a...

ask the gook who decides the fate of aforementioned gook.. :P

question b...

dont waste time thinking...

or instant pasta for a change...

questions c...

tags are a way of terrorising ppl on blogland!!!hehehe
if you have an agonizingly loong tag, ppl will hate to fill it up...who likes to think up random stuff abt themselves and write on their blogs???
