Spare The Log
Is it some kind of cry for help? Season after season that ultimate slab of faded dreariness is shoved through my puckered unyielding letterbox. MCI's "Mountain Log" makes me want to impale myself on my poles (I don't mean the very fine ladies who work for me...) Did the Loggers buy millions of litres of Blandest Blue and Granny's Green Ink generations ago which they must now regurgitate ad nauseam? Couldn't they do what the government did with the Voting Machines and stash the redundant in a warehouse in perpetuity?
What hatred of Graphic Design drives this futile repetition? What misanthrophy ? What nihilism?
Do you reject the Cover of Mountain Log? I DO.
And all its works? I DO
And all its ways? I DO
