        I've noticed this too . . . my take on it is a little less benign I
guess. To me, it seems like just another instance of a cool art form being
coopted for the sake of commerce - - thereby stripping it of any sense of
danger or threat, and totally subverting it away from the youth culture 
created it . . . turning it into yet another homogenized bit of corporate
culture. IMHO.

        Color me pessimstic . . .
