I’d Like to Take a Minute Just Sit Right There

I’m back kids, and this is your moment of reckoning. Just kidding…about the reckoning, that is.

Hey all, this is Matt Van Hoven, the contrive son of a saint you know from such moments in AgencySpy history as ‘Matt Van Hoven, Tartard’ and a bunch of other horribly written blog posts. Ha ha those were good times, amiright? Well the good times are over kids, because we’re just two short years away from the End Times (aka 2012) and if I know you, you’re going to spend that time buried in some awful campaign. I’m here to write about it (again) – can ya dig?

Ok but seriously, I hope you don’t mind if I take a bit of your precious reading time for a joy ride. Because that’s why you love this site. And it’s going to be fucking awesome. And you will like it. Why? Because shit needs shaking up. Unfortunately there are only 24 hours in a day, so I’ll be counting on you to do some interesting work (like you do) so I’ll have something to blab about. I told you I’m contrive. Wait I think that’s the wrong word.

Whatever the case, I have the strongest urge to write, “I’m baaaacccckk’” but that would only be partially true. After all, SKINNY is home now, and work needs getting done. But to be sure, you can expect to see more bylines with my name on them in the coming weeks. The content will be observational, as it always was, but focused mostly on the trappings of communication, as well as the purveyors who create it. How’s that for some vague ish? Muahahahahahaha.

Hold on, you didn’t think that was all, did you? Of course it isn’t – this is AgencySpy y’all – where there’s always another story to be told. So sit back, relax, and keep your finger on the refresh button. We’re just getting started. Yes, i said ‘we’, and yes you should read into that. More after these messages…
