Have you seen these new Cisco ads with Ellen Page? They shoehorned Ellen Page into ads about Cisco systems technology featuring people who seem to care even less about Ellen Page being in the ads than the viewer. Is there some connection to Ellen and business technology that I just don't see? Was there a big conference call scene in Juno that I missed or was telecommunication a bigger part of Hard Candy than I realized?
I don't picture a lot of people buying this for themselves, I think it's more of a gift item. This is something you buy for a loved one to say to them, "you're ready for the nursing home", without actually having to say it. It's also a nice way of saying, "you're as cute as a baby and a messy eater like a baby, so wear this fucking bib". Nothing could be more heartfelt and considerate.
Sorry for the lapse in posts to my faithful reader (whoever you are). I moved earlier this month and was packing before that so my blog has taken a backseat. I hope to have more posts and exciting adventures to share.
