Someone recently sent me a link to this and I thought it was worth passing on. I particulary enjoyed this piece because I relate in some measure. Although some may write him off as merely a novelty, Weird Al has some serious talent. He also seems to be one of the few artists that "get it" concerning the digital media (r)evolution.

I just don't get it. Wouldn't this be like plumbers taking out full-page ads deriding manufacturers for making more durable pipes?

In case you missed it, Mobile ESPN, or as I call it, "The Ocho", announced it will be shutting down operations in December of this year. I guess my only question is, what took so long? This ideas was doomed from the beginning. You had to know they were in trouble when they started airing commercials that stated you'd get a cash "signing bonus" for signing up. There are talks that they will license their content to other operators, which is not a bad idea at all and is what they should have done in the first place. I'm just glad I won't have to endure any more of those terrible commercials during my weekend football watching.
