And your synergy just plain sucks! The curse of being a football fan is that you have to put up with all the window dressing that is needed to entice non-football fans these days. I know I'm not breaking new ground with this statement, but for me to not say it in some medium would just be wrong. I woke up from a nap and switched over to Fox to see what was going on, and Alicia Keys performing. I think she is an incredible artist, but am I the only one that just thinks there's something wrong with a performance on a football field. That, of course, doesn't include marching bands. Because marching bands are tradition. Their popularity doesn't diminish over time. Their popularity doesn't disappear with age. It actually grows. They play the same songs in the same formations with the same movements every week and it never gets old. If you're like me, your schools marching band actually invokes emotions in you that you don't experience anywhere or with anyone else. Simply put, it's special. But something about a pop artist performing on a field just reeks of bad. Of course, the last thing I saw before my nap was Before the Music Dies, a documentary on the devolution of popular music. It's running on IFC this month and I would strongly urge you to take 90 minutes of your life to check it out. So yeah, I'm sure that skewed my thought process a little bit. But still, the corporate mega forces that control the music industry are the same types that control the broadcast industry that feeds us what they want us to like on the TV side. And they seem to work well together to bring football fans what we least want to see on Superbowl Sunday. Although I'm sure it's exactly what all the test markets are telling them it's what they need to show to bring in the non-football fans. Still, it is the Superbowl. Which is going on as I type this. So I should probably get in front of the TV so I don't seem like a complete dweeb tomorrow at work. But before I do, you should really check out this video from the documentary I was telling you about. This is why people lip sync.
