I broke my big toe yesterday.

Funny thing about a broken big toe...doctors really don't do anything to treat it. No cast, splint, etc. Just drain off the massive blood bubble that formed below the toenail, and a quick, "try to stay off your feet," and that's it. My half-mile walk to work today was so painful, I was literally in tears (one especially kind woman even took the time to ask me if I was going to be okay; I think she thought my best friend had died or something). Even the simple task of putting on shoes becomes torturous. What does this have to do with advertising? Nothing really, except I'd still rather have a broken toe than a shitty creative brief.

Why the name?

I thought I should probably explain the name of this blog. It's called Dry Ice Factory, because in their song "Cities," the Talking Heads sang, "Look over there!...A dry ice factory...A good place to get some thinking done."

Simple as that.

I am currently writing ads for a colon stapler.

To all of you working on car accounts, or beer accounts, or golf accounts, I am writing ads at this very moent for a colon stapler. It's main selling point: it's CURVED.
