Journal Journal: The Flaming Lips Sold-Out to Big Tobacco

This past week the Flaming Lips played at La Zona Rosa. The tour they're on is sponsored by Camel. The shows are free. The fans are subjected to intense Camel marketing / recruitment by the cancer merchant. Ugly companies like Camel will pay anything for coolness. Apparently the Flaming Lips decided it was time to sell theirs. Oh, and Dinosaur Jr. must have caught Camel's attention with their Green Mind album cover, because they're on the tobacco gravy train as well.

Diplomacy is the art of saying "nice doggy" until you can find a rock.
