        Hey Dave,

        Yes, this occurs to me as well. I think that subversion CAN cut 
ways. To me, however, it usually comes down to the corporate folk using
things as the current flavor/window-dressing for their necessary
adverstising uses (and they "do" need to advertise. As opposed to some
people who are creating the stuff because they "need to"  . . . I just
remember the days about 8(?) years ago when the new sound in advertising 
fake U2-style guitar music. 

        The other deal about subversion from the other side (rather than 
mercantile side) is this (got this from a PolySci teacher): It's the Golden
Rule - - you take their gold, you follow their rules.

        Musically, I think that the stuff sounds good . . . as I said I'm a
pessimist about this sort of thing tho' . . .
