Hooolllyyyy smokes. I'm a music teacher, so maybe I'm the only one who's seen this, but Juilliard had a dreadful debacle in a recent violin masterclass led by Pinchas Zukerman.

Essentially, he told two sisters of Asian descent that "Koreans can't sing." When one started to explain that they were not Korean, but half Japanese, he then said Japanese people couldn't sing, either, and mimicked their traditional style of singing.
I just... wow.

Sometimes I feel like I don’t spend enough time with my daughter, like enough real quality time...anyone else ever feel that way?
We have some older neighbors (60s) that moved in next door a few months ago. Whenever we watch TV after 9pm, they bang on the walls. We’re listening to it at a volume where we can hardly hear and already moved the speaker away from the shared wall. We’ve asked them when we’ve seen them in the hall to just knock on our door if we’re too loud and they said they didn’t hear us. When do we talk to our building management? Hate feeling like I can’t even relax with TV in own home 😔
Today the cash register broke down while a customer was waiting with 4 pallets of Monster. He yelled at me.

What do you wish design students would learn in school to ease the transition into needs of business? I have seen an increasing need for more education/inclusion/overlap into other areas of business that depend on design teams so they understand what goes into the process. As well as design teams into the other business teams. This would alleviate tensions and improve quality product delivery due to the major miscommunications that occur so frequently.

Someone please give this person a job already
-they’re harder to write
-production is a valuable skill
-if you took the time to make one (and it’s good) it shows you’re dedicated to this advertising thing
-you’re going to do far more commercials than print ads at an agency
-they’re more fun to look at in a book
-you’re talking about byu books. everything in their books are better than yours
But maybe cuz a commercial is so so so much harder to make than a print ad?
I mean a lot of BYU students do it and get into great shops.
In big agency world ideas tend to start with commercials and prints tend to be derivatives. Having spec commercials that are good naturally shows the potential and makes it easier to hire.
I’m shocked nobody is stating the obvious here. Agencies overwork their staff, so on-the-job mentorship is mostly dead. As a result, a junior with produced spec TVCs is going to seem more ready than someone who has no TV experience.
