The Spies

Correction: Super Spy Exits Stage Left


Ah. Some people can’t keep their mouths shut and while I love them dearly, I’m also going to have to shoot them dirty, scathing looks from across the blogosphere, while I set the record straight a little earlier than I would have liked.

Here’s the deal: I’m burnt like Britney. I love this damn blog, but my eyes hurt, fingers are now small nubs of flesh and this year of manic blogging has taken its toll. I need a break – a long one. Plus, I have a real job and I’ve gotten a bit of a promotion and now, time is an issue. So, I’m outta here beginning June 1st. Can’t tell you how long and trust, I love this blog and I love you guys and (gasp!)…

So, stay tuned to this here page for updates on how you (yes you!) can be the next spy. Plus! I’ve got a parting gift up my sleeve. I think you’re going to like it.

Making A Different Set Of Rules

“Gonna change my way of thinking/
Make myself a different set of rules/
Gonna change my way of thinking/
Make myself a different set of rules/
Gonna put my good foot forward/
And stop being influenced by fools/”

Super Spy here, the OG and good morning ad world! Okay, so take these Bob Dylan lyrics to heart, yeah? Changes are afoot.

So, first thing – as you know, there are three of us now blogging away. I do hope that you like the new point of views and the plethora of posts. Remember to check who wrote a post. Trust. We are all very different, and yet, awesome people. In the mean time, let us know what you love and hate. The comments section awaits.

Speaking of comments, onto point two. On the Mediabistro version of Agency Spy, Mamabistro has enacted Disqus, which means comments can now be made on the site. Hoorah!

Point three – the Mediabistro version now has FULL RSS FEEDS. Get your RSS right here, baby.

Long time readers (and I thank you), you know what this means, right? The WordPress site isn’t long for this world. However, this time Mamabistro has listened to you and provided all the tools you need to make a successful migration.

You’ll probably see a post like this again in the next few days, as we prepare to integrate the two sites. Oh my god. I feel so topical. Integrating. Sexy.

Alright, so that’s the news. Thanks for reading Agency Spy. Seriously.

Fine. I’m One Of You. Fine.

Okay, okay. I’m using Twitter. I like it and you can follow me, Superspy, here. Down Low and Agent C, may get aboard, too.

I thought it would annoy me and maybe it still will, but right now, I’m all over it. As such, Alan Wolk (aka Tangerine Toad) has sent me this little love letter. I liked it so much and as it is Friday, I thought you might enjoy some good natured distraction.

Greetings from Agent C.


Hello everyone.

Agent C here, deep under cover in the muck you all call the ad biz. Despite the fact that I’m one of you, it doesn’t mean I’m out to protect anyone. Fact is, things get ugly and everything’s game.

Go ahead and think you’re safe. Chances are, I’m watching you.

Want to contact me? I have a well-disguised vacuum tube at the corner of 10th Avenue and 47th Street. You can slip notes into the canister and send them to me that way.

Or you can email me at agencyspy.agentc @ gmail. Your choice.

Excuse me while I go to yet another pointless meeting about a meeting. There better be free food, dammit.
