Mime artists

Sod trying to defend themselves from people criticising them for miming for their Superbowl performance - the Red Hot Chili Peppers should be apologising most profusely for collaborating with Bruno Mars...

And while we're on the subject of the Superbowl, I'm not sure what makes me most irritated about this: the fact that Bob Dylan is happy to advertise Chrysler cars; the fact that a reputable music site like Pitchfork is happy to help give the advert wider exposure; or the fact that what masquerades as an iconic sporting event, and is taken seriously as such, is actually just a parade of absurdly expensive adverts interspersed with some meatheads taking four hours attempting to play a particularly tedious game of chess.
