Same story with Led Zeppelin in a Cadillac commercial, really.

I totally hear what you're saying.

Maybe if A Sort of Homecoming popped up in a Motel 6 commercial, I'd feel the same way....

But up to now, I've not really cared that much when artists' music accompanies commercials.

We'd be a lot more offended by Crazy Tonight being in a phone commercial if it wasn't throwaway pop.

I actually found the ad pretty offensive. But maybe that's just because the song was so bad.

Bargain was the only one that stabbed me in the heart.

Revolution being used for Nike shoes was about as bad as it could possibly get, and that was one of the first.

Michael Jackson may not have experienced instant karma for that one, but I find the more drawn-out, suffering karma more satisfying. Like with Ronald Reagan.

I'd forgotten that one.

And yeah.

In other news, I'm listening to Volcano Choir's Unmap right now and absolutely loving it. Any Bon Iver fans should give it a listen. There is some gorgeous stuff to be heard here.

Re: the video I just posted.

#2: I'd put a battery in her Game Gear, if you get my meaning.
#3: This must be a deleted scene from The Informant.

I'm going to a show at a theater, I've never been to a theater gig, and I have no idea where I should get seats from, this is the map they have, does anyone have some advice?



I'd rather do GA, but I'm going with a friend who doesn't want to try it.

One of the cocktail tables on the lower level should be good. I've never been to something like that and had it ticketed, but my time in similar venues has been very well spent hanging out at a table like that.

Having a seat like that affords you more of an opportunity to stretch out and get comfortable. Plus you've got a nice little table to rest your Tanq and tonics one.

Though, Shit, lol, looking at that map again, I think I screwed up a little. The map got really weird when you clicked on it to pick individual seats, and I *thought* I was getting seats next to each other, but there might be a bit of an aisle between . Oh well, I'll just feign like I didn't know.

You shouldn't have a problem moving people around in a setting like that.

Got another question about theater gigs. Would it be in my best interest to bring ear plugs?

It's in yr best interest to bring plugs to any gig, just in case. Often, the band sounds even better.
