Somehow I ended up on the Sugar Free Records website today. They put out an album by a band called Wheat that I thought was pretty good, and I noticed they were linking to a Wheat music video in QuickTime format.

I watched the video, which is made up entirely of clips with hipster-looking kids kissing and fondling each other on a couch, and I think I'm going to be sick. If it was raining outside today and I wanted to stay in front of this computer a little longer, I'd come up with a scathing rant against this bullshit.

You know, the Christmas GAP commercials... The American Eagle ones... The Banana Republic spots...

All these 30-second producers realizing that hipsters kissing to the sounds of little bands no one's heard of can help sell things. Shame on Wheat for believing the hype! Fuckers! Honestly, I'm going to throw up. I'm leaving now.
