hearing a good review of ani di franco’s new record – sounds pretty treatful.

god, I could really use some new music. it’s been just the same stuff over & over again…too much revisiting of the 80s. ‘course, I won’t steal music from Napster – not that I have any fondness for the labels, but I actually believe that artists should own their work. and frankly, even the idea of wandering out to find the people that are giving it away is a little daunting. I don’t even know where to begin. most radio sucks, even if I got more than 10 stations. the end is all versions of buttrock, even if they don’t like to admit it – angry white guys trying to be black. bleh. so all I listen to is the resurrection jukebox on sunday mornings – yep, more 80s music. which, i guess, just means I’m getting on in years. 🙂

but it’s more than that. I’m not really a one-style listener – I’ve just been totally turned off by what goes by the name “alternative” now – and other popular music just sounds like the bad junk from the 80s. dumb teen pop.

grrrr. if I had an extra $25, I’d by ani’s new album, just on principle.
