While walking around town I usually have my ipodShuffle crammed into my ears. Either I’m working on some new TPH tunes (a great way to write lyrics – if you can’t remember them between walking trips, then they usually are worth forgetting) or listening to one of the many business, advertising, marketing or music related podcasts available for free.

On the Advertising Age podcast “why it matters” the host was mentioning that American Idol made 2.5 Billion (yep folks – that’s a billion with a “B” – I just checked the podcast again).

Ad sales, licensing (they actually have a Idol braned candy bar) record sales – geesh.

Personally, I think that show is a prime example of everything that is wrong with the present day music industry. They just end up with the contestant with the least personality.

The world’s going to hell in a handbasket…

So, with all that, keep an eye peeled for The Parkdale Hookers new hit TV show: “So you think you can eat a sandwich….”

what’s your take?
