NYC MAYOR BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD
Just days after NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's ban on large sugary drinks
was struck down by a judge, the feisty Mayor is at it again. Holding a
press conference in a back office of J&R Music World, Bloomberg is now
trying to pass a law banning all boxed sets containing more than 4 CDs.
"This is just one more example of things going too far." Bloomberg was
armed and ready, citing both the Complete Blue Oyster Cult collection
and the Beatles remasters, as "prime examples of excess."
The NYC Mayor was determined.
He went on to explain. "The public is spending too much time with one
band. This can't be a good thing. Why not 16 different CDs of different
artists? They should really expand their musical experiences. Look, I
don't have to tell you anything about my musical taste, but just to get
you off my back, I love "The Flame" as much as the next
guy," he stated while holding the chunky 14 CD Cheap Trick collection. "But staying at home and listening to 4 different versions of 'The Dreaming Police' is just not healthy. Go outside."
Vice President of the United
Parcel Service Joe Gribbs, as well as Head Of Operations for Federal
Express Con Czrzezwicz, flanked the NYC Mayor, supporting his ban
100%, claiming the weight of the packages, especially "those damn Bear
Family boxes from Germany" are too much to handle for some of the older
carriers. Gribbs was angry. "Our drivers have to break their backs
because some selfish music lover needs to hear Agents Of Fortune demos? Not
gonna happen, my friend."
Double CDs will still be allowed, but only if accompanying booklet is 8 pages or less.
