05/27/2010 UPDATE: I was sad to recently find out that 40 Day Dream is now being used to sell cars or something... As Bill Hicks once said: "Here's the deal folks: you do a commercial, you're off the artistic roll call forever. End of story, OK? You're another corporate fucking shill, you're another whore at the capitalist gang-bang. And if you do a commercial, there's a price on your head, everything you say is suspect, and every word that comes out of your mouth is now like a turd falling into my drink."
