There is a great quote in an otherwise unremarkable movie called "Other People's Money". Danny DeVito plays a master of the universe and is commenting unemotionally about a small business he is about to buy up and destroy.
"Fastest way to go out of business?" he asks.. "Take an increasing share of a decreasing market. Slow and steady. Down the drain".
I was reminded of that watching the conspicuous consumption by the record industry tonight at the Brits. How we can celebrate such dreadfully mediocre tosh as The Ting Tings and Duffy is utterly beyond me.
Thank god for Kings Of Leon and Elbow (nice one Phil).
