Don’t be sad that I’m going

July 30, 2004

OK, so the Black Eyed Peas have been quite busy in recent months, promoting such things as the NBA Finals and the Democratic National Convention with their “Let’s Get Retarded” song, which has been carefully modified to make it less ‘objectionable’ and more ‘rousing’. I can live with that.

Today, though, I saw the Raveonettes and “That Great Love Sound” pimping K-Mart. Nothing wrong with that either — hey, I love the song — but it’s interesting to see these previously-obscure songs on TV a few short months after they were on a mix CD I made. Coincidence? That same CD also featured Outkast and “Hey Ya!”

If I ever hear Tomte’s “Schreit den Namen meiner Mutter” or my own “Everything” in a commercial, I’ll know something is very wrong with the world, and that I need to be extra careful about what I put on mixes from then on.

No doubt I’ll end up making and distributing a few CDs consisting entirely of Guitar Wolf and Thee Michelle Gun Elephant, just for the hope of being able to hear some Japanese noise-rock on the tube. Mmm.

In other news, I leave on August 22 for parts unknown Estonia. For a year. Should be interesting. We’ll be in touch.
