Yeah, I know, should probably post this in the Sunshine Fix forum, but who even goes there?

I was taking a piss when I heard "Age of The Sun" on TV and was like "What the...?" Some crappy Nicole Kidman movie that was just on (that I wasn't watching) called "Birthday Girl" or something. A character was apparently listening to "Age of The Sun" on the radio, while driving in his car.

Bill, I hope you got paid!

Yeah, something like that... that's what the dsecription said anyways. I didn't watch it, but I thought the same thing. How random was that?

To be fair the sunshine fix could work well in the mainstream and in mainstream movies. But how they found it I do not know!

Maybe the intern of the sound-design guy has a cousin from Athens?

oh man, that's kind of like when I was at my old crappy job and heard Beulah on that Target commercial a few years back. It's kinda nice when stuff you like pops up in random places.

It doesn't bother me to hear a song I like on a commercial or on some show, especially if it's something E6 related. It brings me a certain amount of enthrallment to know that great music is being recognized at least somehow by mainstream entertainment.

I got that feeling today! I walked into a WaWa dreadfully tired trying to get a pick me up, when I hear Gorillaz 19/2000 Soulchild Remix being played. Fuck coffee, that shit woke me up in no time.

You have Wawa up in New York? I thought they pretty much never made it north of Central Jersey.

My friend reminded me the other day that it's a bit disturbing when you hear too many songs you like in establishments such as department stores, supermarkets etc. "Maybe you are growing old and lame." Once I heard "Tell her no" by the Zombies, "Let's dance" by David Bowie, and "Down under" by Men at Work (I'm obsessed with Australia, ok?) in a row at the local Hannaford supermarket and it was like 7 minutes in a heaven of mediocre parameters in the beer and soda aisle. Radical independent music snob youth principles and youth culture ideals aside, I guess she was implying that we either should be worried for our minds and ears deceiving us in some Brave New World fashion or staging a revolution and taking over piped music the world over.

So you think the music is being used maliciously somehow, "it's a trap," and we're just bending over and taking it up the ass?

I think she was suggesting that I like Men at Work too much, though she is of the conspiracy theory sort at times.

Um, all those songs are now MOR/Auduly Contemporary by now. :p
