I was looking for a rehearsal space today when I heard the news: GM To Phase Out Oldsmobile. My instant reaction was mixed, a combination of “yup, that’s what you get when you fuck with Guster” and “yup, you fuck with Guster and that’s what you get.” But there was also a nagging feeling that it was inappropriate to celebrate the loss of thousands of jobs.
And then, slowly but surely, the conscience went away. Like it always does. And I wondered if this was how Abraham Lincoln felt when the Emancipation Proclamation was issued. I wondered if this was how Davey felt when he… umm… did whatever he did to Goliath. I wondered if Eddie Vedder felt this good when the walls of Ticketmaster came crumbling down last year. Or, was that just a dream?
