Rolling Stones: Company Men

I just read that Antigone Rising is opening up for the Rolling Stones on a few dates. For those of you who don't know, Antigone Rising is a band that Starbucks is trying to shove down our throats (a long with coffee and sweet, sweet cookies). The Rollling Stones is a band that doesn't need to be shoved down anyone's throat, but Starbucks is doing it anyway. So isn't it interesting that Antigone Rising is opening for the Rolling Stones. But as you probably know, I believe in selling out, so I'm not at all concerned about this. And really, is there a worse gig than opening for the Rolling Stones? The opening band is made to sound terrible on purpose, and no one wants to see them anyway. The creme on the top of the frappuccino is that you get paid jack for the experience.

You are so clueless and ill-informed that it boggles the mind. If you don't know what you're talking about, why not just give your mouth a rest. Spare us your knee-jerk rant about Starbucks and anything associated with them. You sound like a damn talking parrot.
