Idiotic essay on Pay Per Click advertising

Friday, February 28th, 2003

GoogleVillage has a terrible essay about Pay Per Click advertising, the type of “paid listings” service provided by Overture.com and Google, among many others, including (full disclosure) my largest client.

The article has no concrete reasons for questioning the future of PPC. In fact, it underlines many of the strongpoints of this marketing medium: it’s mostly relevant, it’s results-based, it’s less gratuitous and disgusting than banners, it’s flexible, and it does not require long term contracts or lock-in.

The author posits that popular keywords in a PPC system will price themselves out of the market:

There are only a limited number of keywords which are performing well for clients and as competition rises, so will the pricing for these rise. It …

Paris Hilton fashion update

Friday, February 28th, 2003

If you’re going as Paris Hilton to Carnival and you want to make sure your costume is perfect, these are the only jeans she wears and she has 20 pairs. (Supposedly, of course)

Can’t find much online (thanks, web) except this:

The end of all sanity in the medical profession

Friday, February 28th, 2003

Some burn victim is getting a face transplant which I find disgusting and scary and terrible and a lot of other exaggerated terms.

Once a board of ethics, headed by Falklands War veteran Simon Weston has given the go-ahead, Lena will receive the face of a dead donor, removing her own severely burned face…

The surgery involves “degloving” the donor’s face from a four-hour-old corpse, severing the top layer of skin and then grafting it onto the recipient’s face.

Jennie Finch

Friday, February 28th, 2003

For a dykey sportslut, Jennie Finch is kind of cute. She’s apparently good too, which is so important.

Too bad about the ridiculous rotating jesusfish in the corner of her site.

Icy Hot StuntaZzZZ!

Friday, February 28th, 2003

Holy shit these guys are dummbbbb. Heidi swears they’re really real, so if it’s a gag and I linked to them and the joke’s on me, I’ll give you her address so you can go fuckrape her. (Since she’s in the Dominican Republic her address is basically a two-paragraph description of how to get to her house from the port, since they don’t have streets (just sewage canals that you can walk next to or ride your donkey along) or addresses (since no one can read or write anyway, including all government officials). When Heidi arrived, with a relatively high level of knowledge, she was looked upon by the natives (who are savage and have bones through their noses) as …

Just Another Rich Kid inside scoop

Friday, February 28th, 2003

Ken Courtney is the man. Here’s the current stock list which you REALLY NEED TO BUY. This guy is redefining fashion. You need to support this. In the future we’ll wonder how we ever bought “fashion” that was designed months in the future by a marketing machine like current fashion houses.

Fashion is lean, urban, dynamic, fast.

Night on the town

Friday, February 28th, 2003

We went to Slim’s and it was dead, so we had to leave and go to the Grove. Since the Grove is known as the shittest shithole of them all on earth, everyone was sad:

Or at least tired. Except me, cuz I’m permadrunk:

I swear my eyes are approximately the same size in real life.

Many hours of Grovesuffering and many miles of driving back to the beach later we met these people:

who have NEVER EVER SMOKED POT so don’t even ask, but they had this Indian friend:

who just discovered cameras and is kind of afraid of them cuz they might steal your soul but at the same time is really interested in how it works, so we had to take a …

Japanese soda

Friday, February 28th, 2003

I forgot to blog yesterday that AsiaFoods.com delivered my Japanese soda that has a marble in it. It’s fun to drink and tastes pretty good too. I recommend it! (If only I knew its name but unfortunately it’s a bunch of crazy characters)

Friday, February 28th, 2003

This song is so good it’s song of the day again.

My chewable liquor idea stolen

Thursday, February 27th, 2003

I’ve had this idea for a few years to make liquor gum or liquor pills that get you drunk upon ingestion. Some asshole motherfucker stole my idea.

That will teach me to actually do something with my ideas instead of sitting here looking at NYSocialDiary.com all day.
