Linkatharsis: Slippery When Wetnesday
That's right, say good bye to the Global War on Turr-ism, or G-WOT, say hello to the Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism, or G-SAVE.

Quite blah as you might imagine. They could spice it up by, say, posting rider experiences, perhaps? I still have the photographs if that want.
I join in the chorus of yawns heard all across the internets. Any artist who's on mainstream radio is there because money the label specifically paid for airplay, and radio stations got paid. Except normally, an independent promoter is taking a cut to keep it all legal. Sony just happened to cut out the middleman. The only big deal here is that the media is making a big deal.
Though I'm sure some fans of Franz Ferdinand must be utterly crushed that the band didn't make it to Top 40 radio because of their irresistible indie sound. That can't help their cred, can it?
