Jeff Tweedy and Steve Albini play a couple of wiseassed cops in what promises to be the greatest promotional ad for the Affordable Care Act ever:
This is how you resist.
Single features a fantastic piece of commercial art, and it works on so many levels.
The song, in and of itself, is a novel set to music, and it is so intelligently rendered as to demand the sort of packaging and artwork seen here.
The vast majority of the viewers for these newscasts are AARP-eligible, although that's true for news in general. Right now Williams and Sawyer are battling for first place in the ratings category that both networks covet most, the 25- to 54-year-old demographic. ABC, long accustomed to second place behind NBC at 6:30 p.m., has won for four of the past six weeks.
Here goes: You and up to four other people take turns streaming just about any song you want for anyone who wants to listen, for free, in one of the site’s “rooms.” A deal withMediaNet, a digital content provider, gives Turntable access to millions of songs, and if the song you want to play isn’t there, you can upload your own MP3 to the site and play that. There’s a chat feature so you can compare notes, and you can “follow” your pals.
And while it seems blindingly obvious that Turntable.fm is a great thing for the music business — it , the best possible advertising — I wouldn’t put it past a label or two to gripe about the service.
Also confirmed to play: Nine Inch Nails, Phoenix, the Postal Service, Vampire Weekend, New Order, Queens of the Stone Age, The Lumineers and The National.How messed up is that? You have a chance to see The Cure and New Order at an event (I'm guessing they will be playing on different days) and it isn't newsworthy enough to mention? How is it that we are living in 2013 and the fact that both The Cure and New Order are on tour isn't a huge, oh-my-God kind of a big fucking deal?
