My repeated efforts to get Sega to pay me for the hours I spent driving a fucking forklift for them in that stupid Shenmue game have been unsucessful, in case you were wondering.

Also note that the title of this article is a clear ripoff of an old article Steve Albini wrote for the Baffler, “The Problem With Music.” But where Steve’s article was a brilliant expose on the bullshit that is the music industry, mine is just, umm, you know, stupid crap in Über.
