We were talkin’ last night about how great that track would be for a Gap commercial or something. In this late stage in my life I wouldn’t be opposed to commercializing one of my songs. Hell, I don’t give a shit. “Show me the money!” Put one in a Tampax commercial, I don’t care. Hell, I’m just waiting for a big ‘ol hit to retire on. Ain’t got nuthin’ else. How do you get songs in commercials anyway? I guess ya gotta know somebody that knows somebody. One thing I hate though is when the company uses a song I hate..and that they know everybody hates!. I HATE that! How the hell you gonna hook me in when I’m running as fast as I can for the remote to hit the mute button? I gravitate to great songs, on TV or not. Songs that have me now on TV (when I watch! which is about 20 minutes a day.) are, #1..that heavy badass rockin’ thing on the Dell commercial (the one with the Asian kung-foo dude in a wig). I turn that bitch up every time it comes on! Anybody know who that is? I’ll buy shit out of it! And #2 is the song on the commercial for the iNano. Listen to this, and this ain’t no lie. I was playing guitar one afternoon and (prolly drinkin’ wine) I was just jumpin back and forth between a couple of chords and found a pretty good concoction. I turned up the TV and that iNano song comes on. I swear the song I was playing on my couch was THAT song! I was JUST playing that song and I’d never heard it before in my damn life! Playing it BEFORE I’d heard it, right DAMN before! You know what I mean?
Which…I knew was sign…a sign to keep drinking. So I obliged.
