Bill Hicks on Marketing

Thank god for Bill Hicks. Another dead hero.

By the way, if anyone here is in marketing or advertising…kill yourself. Thank you. Just planting seeds, planting seeds is all I’m doing. No joke here, really. Seriously, kill yourself, you have no rationalisation for what you do, you are Satan’s little helpers. Kill yourself, kill yourself, kill yourself now. Now, back to the show. Seriously, I know the marketing people: ‘There’s gonna be a joke comin’ up.’ There’s no fuckin’ joke. Suck a tail pipe, hang yourself…borrow a pistol from an NRA buddy, do something…rid the world of your evil fuckin’ presence.

Unfortunately Necessary Disclaimer: Needless to say the above is satire, a joke, humor.

Theories from Wired, US News Source, Salon, Slate, the New York Times, and NPR

WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange is in jail in Britain, awaiting trial on Swedish sex crimes charges, but what will happen next is unclear. Deemed a flight risk and denied bail, Assange will stay incarcerated at least until his Dec. 14 hearing. In his absence, WikiLeaks is still “operational,” says spokeswoman Kristinn Hrafnsson, but Visa, MasterCard, PayPal, and the site’s Swiss bank have cut off much of its funding. (Those companies have since faced retaliatory attacks from sympathetic hackers.) Here are seven guesses as to what’s in store for Assange and his secrets-spilling site.

Whether it’s publishing stolen business plans or breaking publicist embargoes, Techcrunch is notorious for its take-no-prisoners approach to online journalism.

But the audacious blog may have lost its nerve amid a firestorm of criticism over a salacious story about sexual misconduct.
A Techcrunch article published Friday that rehashed sexual-assault allegations made online by a Google (NSDQ: GOOG) employee has disappeared from the AOL-owned blog with no further explanation.
While links to the story, “Googler Accuses Twitter Engineer Of Sexual Assault, Trial By Twitter Commences,” are easily found all over the internet, they lead to a dead URL on Techcrunch with no sign of the original content, just a “Page Not Found” label.
