A Call To Arms

I have an announcement. I am now officially boycotting Circuit City until they stop mangling The Cars' "Just What I Needed" in their tee-vee ads.

I cannot abide the ads' utter lack of respect for the music. In them, the beat of the opening licks - which is the power driving the entire song - is so screwed up in order that Circuit City can insert their sales copy, that it literally makes me nauseous to listen to it. Note to CC's ad reps: It's the rhythm, stupids.

I hope you will join me in fighting this aesthetic travesty.

I'm already boycotting Best Buy for their anti-customer attitudes and refusal to honor their own service policies. If Circuit City is out, then I'm reduced to the KMart electronics department.

And let's reserve a special hell for those bastards who use Jimi Hendrix to sell cars.
