So in talking this week about corporations and what we are being shown versus not being shown, I think we have made great strides in underground music and art thanks to the Internet.
I've been able to find some really great bands thanks to Myspace music and sites like Pandora radio. I do realize that most of these things will never become main stream, but I think when you get down to the bottom of the music food chain you can find people who are making music because they love it, and not for the money. Of course I'm sure they would prefer not to be broke- but I genuinely believe they do it for the love of the art and expression and not necessarily for aspirations of having a billion tweens sell out your concerts while you gyrate in your pasties (Britney).
If people really want to get away from the main stream pop cotton candy sugar coated music (which I must confess I do love) just do a little research online. The beauty of a non-censored Internet is epitomized in undiscovered talent.
