Arcade Fire and Resonance

I have little to say about Arcade Fire’s latest video that hasn’t already been said. I’ll just add that I haven’t seen a video this impactful since Pearl Jam’s, Jeremy. Watch it and enjoy. Unless you hated your childhood, there’s no way you will not be moved.

The ads made me do it

To quote a new poll conducted by Harris Interactive: 66% of Americans believe that theĀ  advertising industry is partially to blame for the current economic crisis because they caused people to buy things they couldn’t afford. 33% believe that they have a complete or great deal of responsibility. At the same time, 54% of respondents said friends and family were not responsible for causing Americans to buy things they couldn’t afford.

I never knew advertising was that powerful.
