If Brainco taught me one thing, it was this: You're on your own. We provided the money. They provided a building filled with shoddy equipment, zero support/administrative staff, the occasional good teacher (Rabkin was Mancaster’s favorite). Then they moved from Uptown to Shittington. This was (so we were told by Master P) because the students were too fragile to find their own parking downtown at the Wyman building. Appropriately, all the teachers then decided to hold classes in their downtown agencies. Somehow, the students were still able to make it to class. But hey, I may be disgruntled, but we’re all adults here. My hand needs no one to hold it. So, here's to the workers. The one’s who made the lemonade. It’s not where you’re from, it’s not where you are, it’s where you’re going. Here’s to the writer who used PowerPoint to cut and paste agency logos to provide you all with a visual. Here’s to forgiving me if I’ve left your agency off this crude prop. We Beasts should all gather sometime soon. And a big Thank You to The Brew for keeping this site going and keeping us all together. Sorry for the sappy post. The highs in this business are very high and the lows are very low. Today’s a high.

Here, here. There have been many things said over the years, usually whilst slamming 2-4-1s post-critique, but there was the occasional positive too.

I'd be interested in learning of any Superbeast events taking place in MPLS during my return Dec. 26th-Jan 2.

Thanks for posting that Lee. It gets me all moist behind my nuts to hear that people actually appreciate Social Beasting 2.0.

As for SuperBeast events and social mixers? I'll be anywhere there is beer, pear vodka and pizza rolls.

Mancaster will be naked, cold, and bruised in the ditch outside.

Cheers dudes!

Sorry to crash the genital moistening session, but your provocation that students had anything to do with the decision to move the school to the glorious suburban paradise that is Hopkins, Minnesota is entirely false.

I think I speak for anyone who went to school at both buildings, that it was a horrendous mistake.

Anyways, don't mean to come across as a dick (even though I am), but I'll damned if students had anything to do with Brainco becoming part of the Wells-Fargo franchise. I think Superbeast deserves a spot on the board of soon to be accredited School of Advertising, Design and Interactive Studies.

Word from Winny aka Winny-S aka The Dash.

Social Beasting 2.0 makes me thirst for Summit and I'll be in the Minneapolis area from Dec 19th to the 31st. So let's blast some tunes, make fun of Brew for drinking Pear vod and see how drunk we can get Jake.

I'll sign a petition to make The Beasts members of the Board.

I didn't mean to imply that students had anything to do with the move. That was the lame, made-up, lie of an excuse given to us by our fearless leader. Now, are your genitals beginning to moisten again?

Casey Brewer said...

I want to live in a town called Shittington.

By the way, who is representing the class of 2007 at Brainco?

lee said...

There's a going-away party for a guy here at C+M at Harvey's this Friday starting at 5. Might be a nice time to have some Superbeasts meet up as well. If only they had Handy's.

Casey Brewer said...

Jake gives handy's.

R. Falch said...

Is that a different sort of handy?

lee said...

You're lucky. I've give him many handy's but he's never returned the favor.

My sack feels like a tiny oasis already.

Here, here--let's start a petition and get (presumably) the first cybernetic representative on a school board, in human history.
