Quizzical

As was pointed out on AOTS when I first saw this clip, the argument is dependent on the demand for the product. Can you can compare Kid Rock to gasoline? Ninety per cent of the Western populace needs gasoline for something. Did anybody need a cover of Kid Rock singing 'Feel Like Making Love'?



The comment thread that follows the thread is equally enjoyable, with supporters of Mr. Richie arguing he's being anti-corporate America. Mmmm-hmmmm.

The argument is flawed because at present, the economic model that has so failed the entertainment industry has yet to fail the sweater/computer/gasoline businesses as fully. When I can download a sweater from the Gap, then make that argument.
