Self-portrait as a marketing dupe
I went to a few free concerts at Prospect Park this summer. They were sponsored by a regional bank called Washington Mutual. I joked with G about what that kind of sponsorship said about a company. "Yo, check it, we are WaMu. We're the bank that likes the strong songs. Peace out."
A few weeks later when I opened a local bank account I opened one with WaMu.
I know I know.
But in my defense, that Yo La Tengo show was the Bomb!
