What about propaganda for a fake company called Discordicorp? Would that be something people would be interested in?

How do you want to use them? If you Want them realistic you may need some more effective design program.
If sheep entrails could in any way be related to the weather, i.e. sheep trails only originate where it rains, then you could use it as an accurate model for discerning what the weathers going to be like. Either, sheep shit makes it rain, or raining makes sheep shit. Sheep don't shit "randomly" sheep shit after they eat, it doesn't rain "randomly" it rains after water collects in the atmosphere.

Oh, certainly. I'm no graphic designer, merely a womper. If someone with better skill at graphic design wanted to run with the basic idea and find images or create images that are definitely not copyrighted that would be great.

I guess I have a couple of different goals
-to show how silly advertising can be
-make people more aware of the ubiquity of advertisement
-point out how meaningless corporate speak is
-possibly generate more traffic here by creating a mysterious, ill-defined product
-to show that a lot of corporations have mysterious, ill-defined products

I mean, I've seen this sort of thing on certain cable channels. There's an advertisement for some company. It never says at any point what the company actually does other than provide "solutions," which, I only hear as a meaningless jargon term. In reality, what they're trying to sell to the audience is stocks. Stocks? What does your company do?

This of course, can also be applied to CDGASM- if we end up taking the format of a radio show, all of the main advertisements (when not being used for a poster's shameless self-promotion  :lulz:) would be for this mysterious company, or its subsidiaries.

Also, any other potential uses that someone else sees that I'm not seeing. I'm pretty open to collaboration on most things, and if someone else has a good idea, I'm cool with running with it.

Hrm, I like the idea of just random, ill-defined products being advertised by an ill-defined corp, AND I especially love the potentional idea of DiscordicorpTM sponsoring CDGASMTM
Once knew a man who shat himself to death eating too much citrus.

Hell yeah. It would add a whole lot of what the fuck factor. If the ad comes up a few times in the recording people are going to want to look it up. And if they google it, they'll be directed back here.

That might be our in, actually. To advertise for the board without actually advertising for the board. They'll think its some sort of viral marketing and want to check it out.

Another purpose:
-To show how few corporations there actually are. Everything is a subsidiary for something else. With the music industry, for example, there are only 4 companies running the major label gig. All other major labels are child companies of those 4. Anything not part of those 4 is a minor/independent label. (did some research on it. Decided if Anarchangel ever gets an offer I would be inclined to minor label as they would guarantee us more support.)

Interesting. You may also like the non commercial brands thread that's floating around.

I think I saw that awhile back. But it was awhile, so I may have missed an update or two over an odd weekend.
