You Are Not a Market

Even favoritism aside, this video by musician Scott Alexander provides a critique of branding and marketing that dovetails nicely with some of the shopdropping work I do.


  1. I like the idea, but found it hard to listen to the lyrics and read the text at the same time...perhaps that was intentional, to really highlight the frustration and confusion of so much emphasis on self-selling, but I mostly found it hard to listen to the song...

  2. Thanks so much for posting this. I'm not fond of reading, so I imagine that I would probably just skim through the video-text. I guess my main objective with so much going on was to compel you to play it several times.
