Read the Adobo Magazine feature. What got me interested was what was quoted, him saying "I don't even know who these people are..." and immediately I thought oh oh. Will there be a martial rule at LOWE? O nagsimula na ba? Baka mag-impose siya ng 12am-5am curfew so probably that is a good thing. ;>

Made me also think of the incoming head of Ace Saatchi & Saatchi - Matt Seddon. A good friend texted me this about him:

"He keeps his cards close. Likes awards and profit. Pleasant but hard to read..."

I think heads will roll, I think. Scary world we now live in...

Excerpt: Good morning!

This microphone… there are elves!

Right. In spite of the fact that some of you were here 1230 and probably asleep quietly in the background somewhat, one of the reasons I became a writer was to not get up early in the morning. And this qualifies as early and I did really well at the Advertising Congress the other day because that started at 930 and I was still on jet lag American time. My soul was still halfway across the Pacific and my theory is that souls travel at 60 miles an hour, about as fast as the fastest car. This morning it’s finally caught up with me so instead of beginning by giving another talk, I will begin by reading it to you and we’ll see if my writing actually arrived with my entry.

Thanks much, Charles! :)

Thanks too to http://heartofadream.wordpress.com/

Was posted in one of the comments that he's heading to Ace (Saatchi & Saatchi). Question is will he bring his award-winning team or will there be a major shake-up/revamp within the organization. Hintay lang. I will check on my sources and will do my background check on Mr. Seddon.

Walang kahumpay-humpay ang tsismax sa industriyang eto. Haaay...
