Gathering No Moss

Oh, you Rolling Stones. You sly, geriatric, manorexic rock gods. Just when I thought you couldn't get any more commercial, you come up with the brilliant idea to cross-market to Days of Our Lives fans. I realize that you and DOOL are both pop culture institutions celebrating 40 years of entertaining the masses, and I congratulate you both on your success and your publicists' successful efforts to get that tenuous connection into all the press coverage. But don't you find that strategy a little strange? While it makes perfect sense to me that "Wild Horses" would be playing while John Black lustily gazes at Dr. Marlena Evans, I just can't see Victor Kiriakis imitating Mick's chicken wing dancing style to "Jumping Jack Flash," which he blasts through the hidden boom box in his mansion's attic. Inspired? No. Ridiculous? Yes. But then again, that pretty much describes the current state of both institutions.
