sbwlguy saidThanks a lot for those recommendations, I will most certainly be checking them out.
I wish people knew about all the other amazing music out there rather than be fed commercial pap.
Um its always been this way. There's mainstream music food art movies news houses clothes culture lifestyles etc. And then there's the independent fringe. In this country the mainstream is determined largely by a handful of huge corporations.
The beauty of the 21st century is that you no longer have to live in NYC, SF, Berkeley, Berlin, or Santa Monica to experience the fringe. All you need is an Internet connection.
Sadly, most of those Internet connections are serving up the same mainstream corporate crap.
Dinner at the Olive Garden(TM) by the mall anyone? Let's listen to Lady Gaga(TM) in the car on the way there. Then we can watch the Kardashians(TM) after and admire each others' cool A&F(TM) outfits while snacking on Coronas(TM) and Doritos(TM)
Yes, you can call me an elitist snob. I own it.
