Starbucks Salon: A Venti Hooey Latte.
Starting this Friday through September 17th, bloated behemoth Starbucks will be putting on a "nomadic interactive coffeehouse" at "The King" of Greene St. Nomadic. Interactive. Coffeehouse. That's rich, SBUX. A company with $6.3 billion in revenue in '05, a company that has ruthlessly put hundreds of independent "coffeehouses" out of business, trying to get all Beat Generation counterculture cool on us. Yeah man, I'll be there on the 17th, acid-tripping and finger-snapping to the rebellious, spontaneous words of Lethem, the struggling Brooklyn inkslinger.
1. Smart Media Placement, SBUX.
2. O' STUPID BILLBOARD, O' STUPID BILLBOARD...
3. Starbucks seriously needs to go to Billboarding School.
4. THE WAY $TARBUCK$ $EE$ IT
