    I never particularly liked the song, but the juxtaposition of that song and a commercial for an anti-depressant, while some woman dances and twirls on a rooftop is disgusting. It's an exercise intended to sell a product that you can't actually go to the store to buy and which costs tens of thousands of dollars a month, but which actually only works for about ten per cent of the people who take it and nobody even knows why it works (if it does at all).

    Not to mention the side effects: "If you have heart failure, this product may make the condition worse. Those with a history of heart failure should consult their physician before taking" this bogus product.

    Doesn't everyone have to consult their physician before taking a prescription medication?

    And, how can heart failure get worse? I always thought heart failure was a cause of death, not a something akin arthritic knees.

    I read recently that only TWO countries on Earth allow advertising for prescription drugs, i.e. the US and New Zealand. I don't know why we allow advertising something that is only available if your doctor determines you need it. I guess we're supposed to browbeat our doctors until they prescribe it for us?

    Yeah, the whole prescription drug advertising thing REALLY pisses me off. I just wish it would go away. There's no reason for it. And, it's unethical at best.

    Mini-rant over. Sorry 'bout that!

    Watching the original Mary Poppins forever ruined anything by StaticX for me.

    What do I need to consult a physician for? I've already ran it past a whole bunch of guitar guys on a forum...

    "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" ruined "She'll Be Comin' 'Round the Mountain" for me.

    Scorsese and Leila.
    Not that I ever cared much for Leila, but now when I hear it, I see dead bodies in meat trucks, garbage trucks and parked cars. Kind of a bummer.

    I love that scene but then I think BR is bloated and overrated.

    Along the same lines, another advert one - the 'oh what a feeling' Toyota tagline - the tune that goes along with those words (hum it if you're an Aussie) is exactly the same as the start of the guitar solo in REM's The One I Love. It contaminates one of the few guitar solos I can play to an almost unplayable degree.

    Martin Scorsese keeps trying to overpower Gimme Shelter but that song is just bigger than any of his movies.

    Now that you guys mention it, I gotta watch Dragon Tattoo Girl again because I don't even remember that song being in there
