Giant newspaper!

Advertising has changed drastically over the past five years; media buyers are looking to staunch the bleeding caused by viewers skipping ads with their TiVos and downloading ad-free media from an unimaginable wealth of sources. The conventional advertising model indeed appears to be broken; the solution, clearly, is to make the advertising venues bigger.

It was in response to this need that the estimable Dr. Hereford von Schnittke entered his top-secret laboratory in Belgium, armed with an untold number of chemical compounds and the arcane knowledge of the centuries. He emerged months later, a victorious smile upon his face – he had created the monster newspaper, a hybrid of publishing vehicle and blood-drenched hellspawn. Customers would no longer be able to avoid advertisements – oh, no, they would not! Dr. von Schnittke had quite seen to that.

Oh, and, yes – helllllloooo ladies!

    Just finished “Making Money”, part 2 of the aderutnves of Moist Von Lipwig, confidence trickster and accidental social climber. I should have read “Going postal” first, but don’t think I’ve lost out much. My favorites are “Guards! Guards!” and “Reaper Man” the book dedicated to THE MAN WHO TALKS IN CAPS. Of course, “The Color of Magic” and “The Light Fantastic” are the first and very worthy books but those two really have to be read in order since they’re basically one book divided in half.
