Problems you didn’t even know you had.

Things like this (see below and corresponding comments on website) always make me wish advertising had a better track record. Or at least wasn't perceived so negatively. As if it's the ultimate enemy of real culture. Don't ads make some aspects of culture possible in the first place? Or if the Met advertises would these same critics still take issue? I don't mean to be flip, I just wish there were more dialogue.

Maybe we need to start advertising advertising...? It's dripping with irony. It's rebellious. It's antidisestablishmentarianism. The kids will learn to spell that and put it on their skate boards!

Probably a bad idea...

PS I love Indexed. I hope I did not unintentionally insinuate otherwise above.
