Anyone that still likes Death Cab For Cutie or The Postal Service should kill themselves now.

Do the world a favour, eat a bullet.

Trust me, we'd all be better off without you. You're going to hell (if there is one) for worshipping a False Idol anyway, why delay the inevitable? Email Benjamin Gibbard and ask him for a bag of quarters or even toonies so you can beat yourself to Death (maybe in a Cab) with it. I'm sure he's got more than enough money to send from selling his soul to the devil and selling out so many times I can't even count.

Not only did I hear a few Death Cab songs like 4 years ago playing in The Gap on a specially made-for-The-Gap ambient music CD when I was walking through the store....but I just saw quite possibly the worst, and funniest, sell out of all time.

So I just happened to be walking by the TV when I saw a commercial and heard the familiar song Such Great Heights playing. I look downstairs to see if someone is on the computer and playing an MP3 really loudly cause I couldn't imagine why on earth that song would actually be on the television.

Then, I saw it. The commercial was for, none other than..............UPS. The United Parcel Service:

UPS is well-known for its
brown trucks, internally known as package cars (hence the company nickname "The Big Brown Machine",

Major competitors include
United States Postal Service (USPS)

So....The band, The Postal Service, does television ads for UPS, or the Big Brown Machine. Too bad they couldn't get a deal with UPS's major competitor the actual Postal Service, but they sold out anyway and took the money.

Hey Ben, go die.
