I Got a Couple Past-Due Bills, Won't Get Specific

Well, kids they can't all be aces. Today's Overtones in The Globe and Mail, riffing off the news that McDonald's is trying to solicit name-checks of the Big Mac in hip-hop lyrics, has a lot of notes and bits and ruminations about product placement and hypercapitalism in hip-hop, but I don't think it comes strongly to a conclusion. This is what happens when you let yourself overresearch and start writing at 4 a.m. with a 10 a.m. deadline - at some point the text begins to swim before you and your point can get lost in the undulating waves. I still think it's worth a read, though.

don't forget to take paul simon's kodachrome away.
hey, is there one good reason why i can't read yr g-damn column in national editions of the globe? i know i've asked this before, but it's even more grating now that thanks to renzetti and houpt, i now know more about london and new york than i do toronto.
