Damn the man!

Last week I received an interesting press release from Shawn Who concerning a theme song that he and my pal Antisocial had done for an upcoming consumer advocacy podcast. I was planning to do a blurb about the song, but, after taking a look at the specifics concerning the overall project (particularly with regards to the special guests), I thought it might really be something y’all would be interested in.

Peep the knowledge:

Next Tuesday, Dec. 11, marks a historic moment in consumer e-activism: a one-hour call-in podcast, streaming live from ComcastMustDie.com. That's where you'll here the podcast theme Shawn Who wrote and rapped (with a slick chiptune beat from fellow nerdcore hip-hop artist antisoc ).

Guests Jeff Jarvis of Buzzmachine.com, Mona "The Hammer Lady" Shaw, Ralph Nader and comic Harry Shearer will talk about consumerism, net roots action and the frustrations of dealing with soulless corporate giants.

NPR's Bob Greenfield and Bart Wilson will take your calls and emails, and together they will present Comcast with an alternate view of the universe -- one in which consumers are not simply a cash drawer and a nuisance, but a priceless resource to cultivate and exploit. Just not in the way they've been exploited for decades.

Visit ComcastMustDie.com (the new, improved version, coming this week) Dec. 11 at 9 p.m. EST with your ideas, and your rage.

You know, that is, if your broadband is working.

And if you kids have one o' them MySpace dealies, you can check out Shawn Who Raps right here.

The other version of the theme song is pretty good too. That's not to say that ours is not awesome.
