U2 sells out
(again?). I just got this email, which calls for a boycott of Best Buy
because of an exclusive distribution deal with U2
. Apparently, their upcoming concert DVD will be available
at Best Buy two weeks before we can buy it anywhere else
. Personally, I hoping for another interview with the Edge
in which he claims to know nothing about this.
I've always been a fan, but it is difficult to decide if these guys are genuine humanitarians or corporate pawns. In this day in age, I'm sure you can be both and get away with it.

"After the J. C. Penney ad ran, they got a letter from a fan wondering how they could be that desperate; did they need the money for an operation or something?" Tomorrow's New York Times Magazine
covers the Apples in Stereo and other bands that are jeopardizing their realness
by selling songs to advertisers.
