In the spirit of resistance, here are a couple of snippets of important information from adbusters.org.
First comes the event that should be de rigeur for every intelligent, creative weblogger – the Creative Resistance Contest. You have until December 1 to produce a poster, performance, spoof-ad, storyboard, video or anti-logo. I’d like to append this advert with a personal appeal to Jason Kottke to submit the parody ads that he made last year: Simply Porn.
Secondly, international Buy Nothing Day is fast approaching (Nov 24th). Give yourself an opportunity to think about the “shop-till-you-drop” imperative before the consumer glut of Christmas. I’m thinking of taking to the streets that day, holding banners outside major London shops. Anyone with me?
