archiving the day

My name is Phillip. I'm a the associate director of account planning at an "internet" advertising agency called Razorfish in New York. I've worked for retail giants, pro-sports teams, electronics companies, on big american cars, and come up with quite a few inappropriate ideas for male hygiene products. My job entails explaining social concepts and trying to generally be "up" on stuff like trends, people's habits, media, the things that may interest my clients (especially when they have no idea how it would interest them). I live in the East Village and like attend loud concerts as well as quiet ones. Food and drink is also a big part of my off time pursuits.

This is some of the stuff I run into on a daily basis.

"the way to be interesting is to be interested" -R. Davies, Important ad guy

David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by  Joy Division.

A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”
