First they introduce us to Feist, a woman who can't sing and dance.  They play the song non-stop and it's infectiously bad.

Now they've got some (I think) Japanese woman, man, she-male or something singing "Music is my boyfriend".  I literally stared at the screen the first time I heard this thinking that it must have been somebody at home writing this and was discovered on Youtube.

Anyone know who came up with these ads?  They suck.

I enjoyed the iPod commercials that featured U2, The Fratellis. Bob Dylan, Caesar, Wolfmother and Jet.

For that matter, I enjoy  the VW commercials that feature music from Wilco's new album, Sky Blue Sky. I also like the nanosecond of love Oasis' All Aroun the World gets from AT&T (shitty company, good band).

Okay, that was a digression.

I don't have cable and my rabbit ears pick up a Fox affiliate from the Southern (B.F) Iowa town of Ottumwa. They broadcast, among other things, Missouri commercials. Needless to say, the state that brought you John Ashcroft has a plethora of shitty commercials. The one that jumps to mind is the Pizza Hut commercial that used Smashmouth music. My girlfriend, a Chicago girl, also commented on the overabundance of pick-up truck adverts on that station.

Believe it or not, that's what the kids listen to nowadays.

Oh, I know. That's what the fruitnuts at the studios give the masses.  The internet was supposed to prevent that but it seems to have gotten worse.
Myspace was originally supposed to be a networking tool for musicians.  Instead it turned into a sexual predators paradise. 

Rock Music/Pop Music is the one art that I believe has taken a step back in the past 25 years. 

And Kid Naitch, I like your avatar!

Is she related to Jim, the sports hotline guy who was seemingly never right?
