Re: Something I just wanted to share with everyone OT

Interesting logic: letting the corporations decide what you like per their ability to mass market it.
Well, too bad about jazz though. WDUQ, a public radio station in Pittsburgh that played jazz daily for YEARS, was bought by some corporate entity who then decided talk radio is the ticket and killed off the jazz broadcasts. I would imagine that would affect the sales figures for some of the artists presented there as well as the general awareness of jazz by public radio listeners.
It's not Lady Gaga's "message" (whatever THAT is-"I'm different" - yeah, right) that's manifesting itself in the worldwide public consciousness but some corporate marketing goobers idea of what to mass market to possible target audiences - like gays, disenfranchised kids, et al.
Any mass marketing (i.e. brainwashing) is deleterious. Look at McDonalds. Garbage food-but lots of folks like it (especially fat ones! :) What happened to local small eateries? They went the way of the buggy whip. Marketing, marketing, marketing-corporate style!

Saying someone 'sucks' is pretty clearly a negative _expression_ I'd
think.  Most people don't say it as a positive (which is odd if you
think about it really).

Diversity is always good.

Till now you seriously considered yourself to be the body and to have a
form. That is the primal ignorance which is the root cause of all trouble.
