Today marks my 15 year wedding anniversary. To mark this occasion, my longtime favorite band, R.E.M. has just announced they're breaking up. I'm not sure why they thought it was an appropriate anniversary gift, but I've come to accept that some people just lack social graces.
On our wedding day, our first dance was to the song "It's The End Of The World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine)." It suited the moment perfectly.
I of course loved their music. Even more, I loved the fact that they shared songwriting credit (and thus, revenue) for every song they wrote. No matter who did what, everyone received equal credit. I love that idea. Whether you're in a band. Or an ad agency.
