    seriously.

    i was writing an email about 10 minutes ago , and ihappened to have a TV on in the other room. and normally i could give 2 fucks what is on (read: background noise) but i heard a very framiliar tune in the background.... so i turn around and look to see whats going down , and there are these asshole palying frisbee in traffic while driving SUVs and so on. im like what the fuck. the song BTW is "Bohemian like you" by the Dandy Warhols. now , seriously what the fuck advertising genius cooked this shit up. so why am i so mad about this? is it because a band i liked happened to be cashing in on the ultra hip advertising market? or is it a little deeper than that....

    i present to you the lyrics to said song. now as im writing this , said commercial is on again. im growing more and more irate. so i would like to ask anyone who is bored enough to actually respond to this , what the fuck the connection is here? fucking forreal.

    The problem is that you belong to a segment of the population that is based on shame. The ironic and judgemental "I am a unique flower because I get it " bullshit is the cause of your problem. Stop.

    or its because i happened to be a fan of said above band. and i dislike the commercial not due to the fact that the band "sold out" , but because the song has nothing to do with the goddamned product that is being sold , or the lifestyle that is portrayed by said people throwing frisbee's from their brand new GM vehicles. read the fucking song!!!!

    well, 99% of people will only hear the chorus, and think that its rad for bohemians to play frisbee in traffic. Whether they relate to it because they are hippies or hate hippies is another story...

    This is one of the more ignorant phrases ever uttered by a person's mouth. Oh wow, the band wanted to explore different avenues and make more money. Big fucking surprise. Just because they're a band that you like means that they can't make money? Do they have to be a semi-well known band that is scraping along with their sales? Do you find something wrong that more people will know a band you like? I hate it when people think they're cool because they know "underground" bands and get pissed when the "underground" bands become more popular. If bands didn't "sell-out" then I bet there would not be nearly as many bands making it today. And then people would be bitching about how most bands don't make enough money.
