In this postmodern world we live in, it all comes down to trust. You need to trust the doctor, the government and the guy selling hotdogs on the corner. Trust is a great and powerful medium. This is my take on trust.
1. Trust your parents. They probably fucked you up, but they didnâ€™t mean to.
2. Donâ€™t trust people that only tell the truth.
3. Trust people who donâ€™t care if you trust them.
4. Donâ€™t trust people living in the past. They donâ€™t trust the future. They donâ€™t deserve to be trusted.
5. Never ever trust a dictator ( see number 2)
6. Donâ€™t trust people begging for trust. They need it to take over the world.
7. Donâ€™t trust people because other people do.
8. Find somebody to trust. It calms you down.
9. Never trust the company, trust the person.
10. Trust money. ( To all you guys listening in from 1929…Donâ€™t trust money)
11. Donâ€™t trust the flawless, trust the people who are honest about their flaws.
12. Donâ€™t trust anybody from Texas.called George.
13. Never trust a trust fund. They will use your money on small islands and
14. Donâ€™t trust people driving around in motorhomes writing about the wonders of
15. Donâ€™t trust the system. Trust your ability to change it to the better.
16. Trust yourself. Others will follow.
Just received a letter from the danish cable provider TDC. It states that due to low shares and rating and all that the won’t provide BBC Food any longer…It’s horrible. I watch BBC Food every Saturday morning…It’s wonderful TV…It’s relaxing…No murder and guns…no car-chases…just chicken and beef…sometimes they drop an egg, but that’s about the most exciting that ever happens…Who wouldn’t love it…I’m starting a petition, so please state your first name and support for BBC Food to remain on TV in Denmark.
Why is it that whenever you see music-producers at work, they always nod…I tried it for six minutes, and I can barely type and nod at the same time…must be horrible going to work…every Monday morning, you’re looking at 50 hours of nodding ahead…but come to think of it, it’s basically the same working in advertising…isn’t it ( please nod…)
On a more personal note, a friend of Busto (you know who you are…you crazy kid…) is going to live in NYC, working as a copywriter…He needs a place to live, a place to get drunk (could be a combination if depression hits in…) and some people to talk to. So if you know anybody (yourself maybe) in the city of citys, please drop us a line. He’s a great chap, and needs a tour of the city (bars…and lots of them…) as soon as he sets foot in Newark…
Copywriter you say…Let’s put it to the test… Could you please do a headline for this picture…and we’re selling tuna this week..(yes…you…crazy kid..push the tuna)
“In Latin American culture, it is considered impolite to “toss” objects to people instead of directly handing it to them”.
I guess that’s why baseball never caught on…
I got nothing to share…
This is a picture of me taking a picture of…yes…exactly…NOTHING…
When I took the picture somewhere on route 1 in CA, I felt like I was standing in the middle of a panopticon in which the architect fucked up the rather important matter of the mirrors between the cells and the center…
[ bonusinfo - I fucking hate it when people refer to McDonalds as a restaurant…IT’S NOT…it’s just a horrible place…a restaurant is a place where they serve food…McDonalds serve shit, and no children should be allowed…yes…I’m in a bad mood today…suck it up ]
( Not going to land a big McDonalds account any time now…I guess…)

It’s a playground of the future in the lower left corner…
Today, on my way back to the office, a tourist-couple asked directions to their hotel. We looked at the map, and they were actually standing 100 feet from the hotel…I told them to go in the complete opposite direction…’cause that’s what it’s all about when on vacation…seeing new things, meeting people and discovering new places…NOT getting back to the hotel for a shower and a nap before the important businessmeeting…I hope…
for a good cause.

These guys are in for quite a trip…it’s very stupid and very cool…
In an article called “the world is spiky” Richard Florida talks about how the world in no way is flat…In Ludvig Holberg’s comedy Erasmus Montanus (1723), Erasmus Montanus returns to his country area after having finished his studies in Copenhagen. He meets considerable opposition when he claims the earth is round, since all the peasants hold it to be flat, and he is denied marriage to his fiancÃ©e of this reason. Not until he cries “The earth is flat as a pancake”, he is allowed to get his beloved…All I’m waiting for is Florida on youtube crying out “the world is as round as Karl Pilkington head”…
Getting to the point. We bought a piece of burned toast…since then we’ve been experiencing heavy traffic to our site. But what I find interesting is the location of the guests…
Top is a map from google-analytics, and bottom is a map from the Florida article mapping patents. See the similarities ? He uses the map to support the hypothesis that the world is spiky, meaning that there are only a few places on earth where innovation thrives. It’s interesting how a piece of burned toast supports what Florida says…The odd and interesting web 2.0 stuff really acts as a strange attractor, attracting the odd and strange…and the people it attracts work and live in these innovative hot-spots…and so on…get the point ? If you use the internet as a social tool, you can use it to get closer to your customers and other bright heads…And the best thing is that you have to use it the right way…’Cause there’s a difference. Use it the wrong way, and it feels like you pulled the wings of a jumbojet to use it as a bus.
