[Dis] Respecting The Dead …

I’m sure John Lennon would be over-the-moon to know his music is now being sold by that global, mainstream coffee chain, Starbucks … especially given his arch-enemy/friend/colleague Paul McCartney got their first when his last load of self-indulgent, ego-maniac, about-as-relevant-to-modern-music-as-spam-is-to-modern-cuisine CD was sold exclusively through that channel.

Given this latest act of ‘brand exploitation’, it would seem this old, racist and highly prejudicial joke isn’t actually a joke anymore.

Q: What’s yellow and lives off dead beetles?

A: Yoko Ono.

I fucking hate starbucks.

I find the SIX different magazines about Princess Diana in our local magazine store far more sickening.

What is wrong with people?!

i can cope with starbucks – their chai is great and when you’re in a town that you can’t communicate in, it’s kind of nice to get a familiar menu-ish. i’d just prefer it if they went back to giving out free coffee grounds for compost and making a big deal out of fair trade, instead of flogging dead horses (or rockstars).
