I have been listening to "house" music, or whatever they
call modern dance music where the beat just goes on and
on and the music sort of changes slowly over it and there
doesn't seem to be any break between songs, and there
isnt any singing, for the first time, and it is very
easily falls into the background so that I
can go from exersizing to eating to reading, all with the
beat in the background and the beat only accentuates
of the other audio I need in my daily routine, except for
advertizing, which is pretty crazy audio-wise, because I
guess they make it as attention grabbing as possible so
that it is interruptive by nature.
I cant stand advertising and will turn off Pandora
an advertisment comes on, and will change stations on
radio as soon as advertising comes on. I guess I fall on
one end of the spectrum how much advertising bothers
me, but I wouldn't hate it so much if it worked over the
beat that was coming from the song before it.
So I wonder if the advertisers and the house musicers or
even the news casters could get in on this too, and they
could all agree on some standards, so that beats can be
played under whatever you are doing, reading news,
making music, having a movie, doing advertising. This
would allow people like me to read the whole thing as
big song, which is probably is, but you know people like
need assurance. I need something to hang my hat on.

||Perhaps advertising should eschew fully-fledged content and instead be published as a mark-up language or CSS-like construct, modulating and repackaging the ambient audio stream of its destination?
