"I've got this killer up inside of me... I can't talk to my mother, (friends, women, coworkers, associates, affiliates, city council, the internets, the homeless or even your mother) so I talk to my diary."

-that Scarface song from Office Space

Knock it Off, Assholes... II

Musicians with writing ability and style need to say this to their record company:

“You will not sell my song to popular radio stations to be syndicated and played everyday for three months at the most profitable hour which is sandwiched by 5centBack and LinkinLogs’ ‘hottest’ hits. If you don’t treat my art with respect, more and more intelligent people by the day are going to assume that money ruins fine art. I want money, but I am not your whore. You are a whore to money, and I am the vibrato that prises wide your commercial fuck-hole. Without me, you have no host, you parasite. I have the power; you are the syphon to get my art to others and you will accept that fact, or I walk.”

On TV, most shows are abominable, a few are great. In theatres, most films are awful and a few are wonderful. Finding these films and shows is easy for anyone who can discriminate, yet on popular radio, DJs pretend like people don’t have any choice. They are forced to have an air in their breath preaching that these are today’s best songs. There is no opportunity for beautiful music to proliferate in this realm, no chance for the ignorant to become educated. Truly, what first needs to be done is for intelligent people to acknowledge that music is a an art of speciality; like painting, sculpting or writing, it takes someone of superlative knowledge to critisize it. Hipster-dufus collge-rockians have no real opinion of music, just as a dope-fiend slacker has none of genetic engineering.

Popular radio does not matter. Honest musicians need to boycott it or continue to lose credibility.
