Trash, or Garbage?

This is one of the few songs by Garbage that I could find on YouTube that allowed embedding. Those ratbastards at the big record labels have disabled embedding on most of Garbage's videos. Now how, exactly, is that helping sales of Garbage's songs? Those stupid asshole motherfuckers wouldn't know effective marketing if it snuck up on them and bit their ass off. But that's okay, what they lack in brains, those morons make up in shear venality -- heard about how they've fucked artists out of millions of dollars in royalties due to them?

Of course, their stupidity and greed is nothing unusual in modern business. Take Wall Street. Please. And throw in a complete U.S. Congress while you're at it, bah humbug!

  1. I'm starting to think you have a thing for redheads.

    Hey, a few weeks a go I saw Neko Case on TV. Sundance channel, maybe. Some show with Elvis Costello. Rather interesting.


  2. Hmm, there does seem to be a lot of redheaded female singers out there. But I think that's more a case of red-headed female singers being more common than they used to be. In real life, most of the redheads I've known have been quite gung-ho and full speed ahead types, and even the quieter ones seem to have a self-assurance that tends to lead them towards less, let us say, quiet, professions.
