Blind Mellon - Three Is a Magic Number

(From Schoolhouse Rock! Rocks! 1997)

I am doing a show with the man who wrote this song: Bob Dorough. I couldn’t be more excited. You should come.

I AM DOING THIS TOO! And if he plays that song I will cry onstage. He will probably play that song. Don’t miss it!

OMG - if you start crying, I might start crying. It’s my favorite of his.

As part of the new 52, DC Comics is doing market research on its readers in partnership with Nielsen.

A letter announcing the survey was sent out earlier this week to LCSs and the text of which reads:

Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and support during the launch of DC COMICS - THE NEW 52. As we made clear from the beginning, our goal was to expand the market by appealing to new/lapsed readers, and our initial sales results would indicate that this has indeed happened. But we want to do more than just assume any results - we want to find ways to measure it accurately in partnership with you. And we need your help. DC has engaged Nielsen NRG, the world-class research company, to survey U.S. consumers and retailers (online and in person), to learn more about DC COMICS - THE NEW 52 and its readership. Your customers can complete a “Reader Survey” by going to http://www.nielsennrg.com/dcsurvey now through Friday, October 7.

The new issue of Previews also talks about the survey

The survey reportedly asks a variety of questions but also requires the person taking to agree not to disclose the survey questions. But having worked with Nielsen on surveys it probably asks them about the individual comics and their buying habits as well as demographics.

It’s interesting that DC is doing this now after the launch. I don’t recall any mentions of surveys before the launch, although will the level of secrecy/time crunch it might now have been feasible.

It will be very interesting to see the results especially the demographics. DC hasn’t has any available numbers on female readers since the mid-90s. Of course, given that they haven’t really targeted females outside of talking about Supergirl in an interview, I don’t hold much hope for them.

And given this is Nielsen I hope  this is better than the reader surveys they did in the 70s where they asked readers if they wanted to read about “black people.”

Two reasons I’m re-blogging this: firstly, everyone who’s reading the new 52 should know that DC and Nielsen are doing this.  Secondly, Bubble gum music is listed as it’s own genre in the 1970 survey!  What a world those kids were living in!

I really felt like listening this and posting it tonight.  I forgot that it was cray cray.

Some observations about this video:

There is a lady in the sun.

The Jacksons are made out of water.  They refuse to stop spilling glitter all over the city.

People are frozen in time watching the Jacksons.

in the sequel to this video, the Jacksons meet Jet Jaguar.
