Oh, that's beautiful. Mesmerizing .....

"Sellout" doesn't have much meaning in this day and age where you can't rely on radio or MTV to get your stuff out there.

I don't think any less of Wilco for doing this. Why should I? Why should anybody?

Pfft. You just wanted attention.

If not, you would have posted this in the existing Wilco thread.

Nah, I just didn't want to read the WHOLE thread.

I do, however, find it funny that if this were done by a band like Pearl (u2) Jam, many on this board would be up in arms . . . or at least tapping their key board with malice in their hearts.

I just commented about this in the Wilco thread.

I think deals like this are great for bands like Wilco, because it exposes their music to a wider audience that would not really hear it. Bob Dylan, Paul McCartney, or U2 doing iPod commercials are one thing, they've all firmly established themselves as popular artists, while Wilco has not.

That being said, I wish more people listened to Wilco. It's a shame, really.

It's a board where there are messages. Post-it notes, perhaps. Smoke signals.

You know, that sort of thing.
