The Only Place I Want to See an Ad

It’s not on television. Not right before a movie. Not in the car listening to the radio during a “Top 100 Rock songs of 1995” break. Not in a newspaper or magazine. Not on the subway or street car. Not on the back of my favorite football team. Not on my Xbox and certainly not … Continue reading
