let me go wild

"For the fans who rightfully are complaining about the Wendy's burger advertisement featuring Blister in the Sun, Gordon Gano is the publisher of the song and Warners is the record company. When they agree to use it there's nothing the rest of the band can do about it, because we don't own the song or the recording. That's showbiz. Therefore when you see dubious or in this case disgusting uses of our music you can thank the greed, insensitivity and poor taste of Gordon Gano, it is his karma that he lost his songwriting ability many years ago, probably due to his own lack of self-respect as his willingness to prostitute our songs demonstrates. Neither Gordon (vegetarian) nor me (gourmet) eat garbage like Wendy's burgers. I can't endorse them because I disagree with corporate food on culinary, political, health, economic and environmental grounds. However I see my life's work trivialized at the hands of my business partner over and over again, although I have raised my objections numerous times. As disgusted as you are I am more so."

Para gustos culinarios y sufrimientos culturales ver "La frontera de cristal" de C.Fuentes

Tranquilo con el TLC, si te van a tomar el parecer de las cosas.

Seguramente el disgusto de Brian Ritchie es porque no le llegan royalties por el toque de la canción en los anuncios de Wendy's, o tal vez porque la vendieron demasiado barata.

Te conozco mosco, venime ahora con el bullshit de que yo-soy-un-gourmet y la vara.

eso sí, achará la cancioncilla.

Estos artistas juega-de-alterno-trendys y políticamente correctos, no sé, me dan cierta picazón por aquellas partes. Ya quisiera ver qué hubiera dicho con un cheque con muchos ceros a la derecha mediante.

Y si es por hamburguesas, nada como la "muertadehambre" o "Los Talleres" por la UNA a las 2 am. Proteína con patitas gratis :P
