“But I’m not a lawyer. I’m an agent.” – The Audacity of Despair
David Simon is not happy about packaging and explains it:
"In order that my agents — the folks who held an absolute fiduciary responsibility to negotiate in good faith on my behalf and on behalf of my book — could be players in the creation of the TV project from that book, in order that they could own a chunk of the project itself and profit by millions of dollars from the work I had asked them to sell, they were willing to return my 7.5 percent commission and the commissions of any other talent they represented, packaging all of us together in a happy bundle for the network. Yes, incredibly, to avoid the most overt and untenable conflict-of-interest, they were willing to heroically give back to me a few thousand dollars in exchange for millions of dollars in points on a piece of NBC’s Homicide: Life on the Street which ran for seven years."

Long John Silver's serves up original album, audio coupons for Lent | Mobile Marketer
Quick-service seafood chain Long John Silver's boosted its Twitter engagement with a campaign that features songs that serve as in-store audio coupons. Customers who visit a restaurant and play a song from an original Long John Silver's playlist on streaming music app Soundcloud are eligible for food an drink discounts, according to a press release shared with Mobile Marketer.
Each song in the playlist was recorded by the Coral Benders, a band based in Washington, D.C., that plays "beach-adjacent" dad rock. Long John Silver's is releasing a new song from the playlist every Friday from March 6 to April 19. The first piece, "The Ballad of Long John Silver," saw engagement that was two- to three-times greater than benchmarks.
Long John Silver's campaign is timed for its busiest season: the approximately six-week period of Lent, when many Christians abstain from eating meat in the lead-up to Easter. Agency Baldwin& developed the campaign, which launched on Ash Wednesday — March 6 — with posts on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
