this is the first day of my life
So today I saw this TV commercial for a realty website called Zillow and I hear the chords to First Day of My Life playing in the background. They edited the song so that the only words you hear are, "Swear I was born right in the doorway." The angry teenager inside me screamed, 'Crass fucking commercialism!' But the older person inside me said, 'Well as long as Conor and Saddle Creek get a chunk of that change, then I suppose it's no harm done.' What do you think about this sort of thing?-acocktailnapkinepitaph
Yes the zillow commercial.. I think, whenever I see/hear it, I’m happy to hear it and I shout to everyone in the room “It’s Conor! It’s Conor!!” and they’re like ok. But really I am always happy to hear him unexpectedly, especially first day of my life, which I don’t generally listen to on my own much anymore. And I like for others to hear him too! I like to hear him on tv, in a movie.. my friends will always text me if they heard him on the radio or pandora or something.. lol. So I never would get angry or think he is selling out because of course I am always happy to hear Conor/bright eyes, no matter when. This is just my opinion. I’ve posted a few times about this zillow commercial but I guess I didn’t tag it because I can’t find the posts :/ I posted this article before too: http://lazy-i.com/2012/09/bright-eyes-sells-zillow-and-why-it-doesnt-matter-corporate-cup-post-script-in-the-column-swans-in-lincoln-built-to-spill-tonight/
The whole ideology of indie rock doesn’t hold any water anymore; it’s not that clear-cut. Every time we sell a record, Time Warner gets a dime from our distributor. I already give a ridiculous amount of my income to the United States government, which is probably the most evil organization on the planet as far as killing people; I don’t know how many bombs I’ve purchased with my tax dollars. Unless you’re gonna live on a mountain somewhere, you’re not gonna be free of the modern world and all the evils that go with it. What you can do is operate with intelligence and be compassionate, help people when you can. Do things not just for money, but for the craft of it. - Conor
