Cast No Shadow

How do you figure?

The guy is wearing a Mickey Mouse head for fucks sake. And anyone that has even a passing knowledge of how trademarks work knows that examples of a company not taking action to protect the trademark can be used as a defense when accused of infringement, thus the law leaves companies like Disney no choice but to take action.

As to why it took so long, well, would anyone really be all that shocked to learn that the corporate lawyers for Disney are slightly out of touch with shitty dance music?

Wait, all of this was triggered by this guy trying to trademark the Mickey Mouse ears? And he was surprised when Disney objected? The only surprising thing about this is that Disney didn’t go after him whenever it was that he first became something people cared about.

I thought it was pretty obvious which guitar parts Buckingham played on Hesitation Marks. He has a pretty distinct playing style.

Why would you expect every list to have some sort of rap on it? I mean I don’t listen to rap. If I were to make a list, it wouldn’t have any rap albums on it. Adding some artifically in order to be inclusive of all genres just doesn’t make any sense.

Oh, and this list has PiL on it so that makes it OK in my book

There’s no other way

I like it! But then again, it is my favorite Stones song and the Dinowalrus album was decent so that shouldn’t be much of a surprise
