I don't think he was referring to the quality of Rather Ripped, but to the criticism of Rather Ripped itself, which was more or less unnecessary.

Most sensible thing in the entire thread.

This "joke" appear be real ...

http://undercover.com.au/News-Story.aspx?id=2313

"The album will presumably be released on Starbucks' newly minted Hear Music label, which recently had a coup with Paul McCartney's new album 'Memory Almost Full' debuting at number 3 on the Billboard Top 200. "

"Notoriously DIY, it's a surprise for Sonic Youth to aligning themselves with the equally-notoriously capitalist Starbucks, who now have over 7,500 outlets in over 40 countries."

Yeah, Starbucks doesn't even sell coffee. They sell fucking cream shit that tastes like vanilla or white chocolate or whatever. But I'm not going to act superior, I applied for a job there once. Cunts didn't call me back for my second interview.

But for the SY compilation, I'm not all that butt hurt. Kind of weird that SY think their fan base partonize Starbucks and ditto for Starbucks. But whatever though...

Just as long as it is better than Paul McCartney's album.

And you, young man, explain to us what you mean by this. If you mean that there would be more chances of hearing the same song over and over again because it was on a tv commercial, that would be one thing. But the fact that it could be a 'good song' on a tv commercial wouldn't compromise anything. Music is as much commerce as it's fun, so no need to be all romantic about it, you're very likely to get let down many times over, if you do.

Apologies if I thought Rather Ripped was a poor album. I suppose I should have said I liked so as not to appear too indie for you should I?

What's the difference where they sell it? It's basically a greatest hits album, which would be fine if it picks up where SCREAMING FIELDS leaves off. If for some reason it bothers you that you can buy it at Starbucks, then don't buy it.

What I mean, old man, is that hearing a song over and over on TV ruins my listening experience when I listen to it on CD/record. I often picture the commerical when listening to the song, rather than the abstract stuff I used to envision prior to the song being in a commercial. It also makes a difference what type of product the song is being used for (car, fast food joint, cruise, etc...) Here are some examples of songs that have been forever ruined because of use in commercials: Lust for Life, Rock n' Roll, Blister in the Sun, every Who song. Some songs, such as Perfect Day (used in an NFL commercial), have not been ruined for me probably because they were used in good taste.

A LOAD OF ASS

is what i've spotted in this thread.

sure i haven't read everything in detail, but who could?

starbucks rules-- i don't even drink coffee these days, but you had to be alive in the early 90's to know that all coffee available in this country was PISS.

that is, until starbucks came on to the scene.

all those "independent coffee shops" that people tout were latecomers, trying to ride on the tailcoats of the success of starbucks.

moreover:

starbucks pays benefits, offer scholarships, and offer other perks to its employees. i know people who used to work for starbucks & they enjoyed it.

"independent coffee shops" offer no security for its employees, no benefits, and most pay minimum wage and some get treated like shit and have no recourse-- i also have a friend who used to practically RUN a coffee shop in dc and one day the girlfriend of the owner took over & she was summarily kicked out.

the only "crime" that i'm aware of starbucks committed is to be successful at what they do. of course every contrarian hipster will cry "nooooo!" whenever something finds success. we prefer patronizing the place with the cockroaches, right? even when they pay misery wages.

now as i said before i don't even drink coffee anymore and i think that people could spend their money in something better, but if you need a good reliable cup of coffee, where else are you gonna go in, say, oklahoma? (maybe floatingslowly can answer that, but i stop at the starbucks in macarthur ave. and i-40).

if you want to cry about starbucks go drink coffee at macdonalds and dunkin donuts, bitches. because that's all there was before.

about selling music-- i hope they make a lot of money. coco's college is not going to be cheap.

100% in agreement
I too cannot listen to rock n roll anymore, and I fucking loved that song.

I agree !@#$%!

Say what you like about Starbucks they make great coffee (There is in Cardiff one nicier independent one, but this is usually rare) and from what I can tell the company operates in an extremely ethical manner (if you have any infomation to the contary i will take it back).

But like I said I rather pop in the Pub and have a pint of Brains Dark...
