Thats a lot of times to sell out, damn they just get better at it everytime. This'll probably upset some people, but who cares.
Sounds great - anyone know when it's due to be broadcast?

You forgot about Gilmore Girls. And Marc Jacobs. And blah blah blah. And really, who gives a crap? Anyone who still blabs about SY's Selling Out is a total moron. If you don't see the awesome absurdity in the things they do (a la Starbucks) then you just don't get it, and never will.

do yourself a favour and stop at the end of season 6 (which is the ep SY appear in, incidentally).

I hope they made a lot of money because that show is fucking evil. I turned it on one evening just to see the deal and 2 mins into the conversation was "No man is worth riding a city bus for" besides the poor grammar its just retarded social engineering normalizing the repulsive behavior.

Shitty show, awesome song. They can do whatever the hell they want though and I think an acoustic version of "Starpower" is a great idea.

edit: although now that I think about it, why can't they just play the original version on the show? It's not like it's that abrasive or anything. That kind of stuff annoys me. It's a perfect pop song, so who cares if there's a tiny bit of feedback? Is it gonna scare away the people who watch the show or something? I doubt it.

Fuckin' A! The show tanked once Amy Sherman-Palladino took off. And to everybody who thought Gilmore Girls was just another teen bullshit program: name ONE other show in which SY, Yo La Tengo, Sparks and Sam Phillips perform in a single epěsode and one of the main characters reads The Big Takeover, namechecks GREG FUCKING GINN and introduces a high-society broad as Catherine Thurston-Moore.

No access to GG here (though I have seen an episode or two -- meh), but I'll definitely look for the clip on YouTube when some kind soul posts it.

Yeah, but the way the characters talk is mindrapingly annoying and an obvious pander to people who like "quirky" characters.

maybe they are trying to balance out the fact that some fans may see them as "selling out" by appearing on the show: by offering an acoustic version, we get excited regardless of the fact that it's gossip girl. everybody's happy. i think the exposure will be positive.
