Listen, I think Andrew and Ben are very smart, creative guys, and I think they understand the right path that MGMT should take, and from our perspective we’re happy to support that. Sometimes I think we have to sit down and talk to them about consequences — if you do this this way, this is going to happen — and we’ve had that conversation. And at the end of the day I think their approach is really refreshing, where art leads, and commerce follows.
