Barenaked on a stick

Barenaked Ladies. I love their sound, and I respect their marketing savvy.

This may be old hat in the recording industry, but it’s the first time I’ve seen it. Barenaked ladies on a stick. You get the 128MB USB thumb drive, loaded with MP3’s, for less than 30 bucks. Amazon.com is sold out right now, but they have them available in their zShops (higher price, though). They’re also available at Werkshop.

  1. I LOVE BNL! as does my husband!
    i have no idea what this little thing is for but i love the marketing ploy

    Do you and Howie listen to Cake? I bet you would like them–i could send you some on the sly. They have a bit of quirk like BNL and while a different STYLE of music the same kind of male vocal blend (does that make sense?)

  2. I don’t listen to the radio much anymore because all the local stations ( all 2 of them) play country or country…. I’ll have to check them out now and see what their sound is.

    For those who like country music the listening here is fine but to me Country Music is an oxymoron

  3. But how many songs do you get on the stick? Is it their entire collection or just a few hits? I’d be more likely to buy something like that if it contained at least two albums worth of music.

  4. Oops, I read your comments in my e-mail notification, but didn’t approve them at my site. Sorry about that! Wish those notification e-mails had an “approve this comment” link that would do it automatically (yeah, I know, the “edit this comment link takes you to a page with the approve button – but I want one easy step. LOL).

    Dana: Well, I’ll have to check them out. I don’t think I’ve ever heard them — or at least not realized who they were. The stick is a portable flash memory device, basically like a CompactFlash or SecureDigital device that plugs directly into your USB port and gives you portrable storage.

    Brenda: I like all musical genres except most grunge, metal and rap (though even artists in those genres surprise me sometimes with something I like). I even like Country.

    Joanie: It’s an entire album on the stick (last year’s Christmas album), plus other songs. There are 29 on it.
