What society is that? Utopia or Nirvana? :)

What kills me is it's even hard to bring it to the streets ... busking licence of $40 for each local government area. Sydney has over 40 LGAs ... this is not encouraging culture.

Thank Deity for YouTube ... unless that new law puts the kibosh on that too.

Bad Abe! Naughty Abe! Go to your corner!

It's crazy. How could we have been so conditioned by the Aural Amusement arm of Big Business Inc that something like Rebecca Black's Friday could be successful? No offence to Rebecca but it's almost entirely anti-music.

Are people losing their critical faculties and failing to see slapdash vacuous crap foisted on them for what it is? Beer and circuses.
