A viking ship appears on the horizon, a likeness of Loretta Lynn carved into its bow. Rare birds flock together to sing Francoise Hardy as soul hits. A sunset of blips and bleeps fills the air.

Good morning fellow Troublemakers. Love the "aht" as they say in Providence. Can't tell if this is an old portrait with the demon shawl painted over it. In any case, I would wear that demon shawl proudly if I owned one.

Cool. I've been wanting to hear Savages. This song sounds good. Anyone listen to the whole album yet? How is it?

@ausmax, I need to check that out, I missed that.

NGH, it's magnificent, trashy martial arts movie dubbed with the swordsmen shouting heavy French structuralist philosophy at each other. one of the funniest things i've ever seen

The Savages album is good. I listened to the whole thing once and immediately bought tickets to see them at Webster Hall in July.

Oops, I just missed the restaurant review. What's it called? And do you have any particular favorites among the Indian restaurants on Newark Ave.? I am always baffled by the overabundance of choices there.

Joining the throng late today. There are clean-cut kids in white tee shirts on every corner in Manhattan today, singing a jingle in praise of Oreos. Oh, this is going to be a long day.

Oreo's ad campaign has adorable animation and lettering but Owl City and Oreo together put me into a diabetic coma.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:20am Ike:

Parq, are they at least giving away some free Oreos?
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:24am Cecile:

yeah, that's the least they could do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:25am Vivian:

Yum! Love Oreos and they're vegan to boot!
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:26am Parq:

But of course, guys. If that's your idea of a boon. To me, free junk food is just free junk. In general, in city life, advertising is getting so much more intrusive that I seriously expect to see a day when we are required by law to accept it on the walls of our own living rooms.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:28am still b/p:

Steven Wright used to say he had a crush on his dental hygienist, so before the cleaning appointment he'd eat a whole bag of Oreos.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:28am Ike:

Parq, there was a George Saunders short story, "My Flamboyant Grandson," sort of like that. Not exactly involving living rooms, though.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:29am Jennique:

Been away from my desk. Did I miss DJ Icepack???
@Parq - I totally agree about ads, they are worming their way into more and more free space. Only solution is to move out of the city, methinks.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:31am Trouble:

i hear you parq! about the ads and the food. we are like mennonites at our house. i make nearly every cookie and cake. but we are gluten free, so that is a starting point for us that most people don't have.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:31am Andrew Waterloo:

Next they'll be tethering ad balloons to farm animals.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:32am Trouble:

no jennique, he was here in food spirit only. he has 19 days of school left, best to take them as i get them...andrew somewhere in europe, i think, someone tried to introduce ads on sheep jackets and the govt stepped in and said no!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:35am Andrew Waterloo:

at least they don't broadcast directly into our minds... yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:36am Andrew Waterloo:

Leela: Didn't you have ads in the 21st century?"
Fry: Well sure, but not in our dreams. Only on TV and radio, and in magazines, and movies, and at ball games... and on buses and milk cartons and t-shirts, and bananas and written on the sky. But not in dreams, no siree.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:37am Andrew Waterloo:

Do they still advertise on bananas?
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:38am Jennique:

@Andrew - did you ever see the movie Minority Report? In it, ads address you directly via retina scan, like a Gap ad person saying, "How'd those jeans work out for Andrew Waterloo?" SCARY because it could happen.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:39am still b/p:

I suppose every percentage point of increase matters to the sellers, but at this point how much can you boost Oreo consumption? Or are they just tryin' to maintain?

Remember the big ad banner in low-orbit concept? If it comes back, I hope the backers are beat back and scorched to cinders by the scorn.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:41am Andrew Waterloo:

@Jennique.. That already happens.. granted they don't use retinal scans, and the style has never been that personal. But, most web advertising is based on browser history.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:43am Trouble:

we are there now, in a sense. our entire 'democratic' lifestyle focuses on the health of business, which in turn demands that we buy the crap they sell, or else...
we are marketed to in everything we do.
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:43am Andrew Waterloo:

the market share for Orea is so big you need to work in order to maintain it as well.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:45am Jennique:

Well I am off again to do a bird tour in the Ramble. No ads, just birds. *aaaaah* Catch you on the archives!
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:48am Vivian:

In my house, we try to stay away from processed foods which is pretty easy since I only eat veggies, grains and occasionally tofu. If time allows, I try to bake bread, can veggies and make cookies for both human and canine from scratch. Even down to making my own deo, perfume, etc. But it really depends on how much time I can squirrel away on weekends. With all the other chores to do, it can be difficult.

Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:52am Vivian:

It's a matter of saying no to consumerism that seems so prominent today. If folks only took the time to ask themselves ' What were the working conditions for the human to make this product? Did it impact the environment in a negative way? Did it involve animal testing?' With so much crap in the world, it makes sense to go to a second hand shop or upcycle..
Avatar Swag For Life Member Tue. 5/14/13 11:52am Jeff:

It isn't completely hopeless to try to exercise one's regular traditional voting franchise, though. Which (ahem) anyone here who happens to be in Jersey City should be going out and doing right now. It's one of the few things I request you do even in lieu of continuing to listen to the lovely musical stylings on WFMU. I read an analysis which suggests that if there's low turnout, a certain thuggish incumbent will probably stay in office, but if people get up off their asses and into their polling places, something good could happen.
Avatar Tue. 5/14/13 11:54am Trouble:

mv&ee have tons of music out there in the cosmos. they are indefatigable, live in rural vermont and play and record as much as possible. probably some free stuff on the FMA site thru wfmu. have had them live on my show, so has dan bodah

@Vivian, I think it's just as important to ask "why am I buying this in the first place."

When I was a social worker I worked for the nationwide non-profit with the initials BBBS. Around 2002 the organization rolled out a "branding" ad campaign modelled on for-profit ad campaigns. I was appalled by it and knew it would fail miserably; which it did.
