Diggin' in the Crates: A Reminder


Reading the news can be a frustrating process. We celebrate a stadium, as people lie homeless. Voting is not a process with equal access. Terrorism has grown since the invasion of Iraq. Schools are nothing more than a market for publishing companies to peddle their wares. People are still being murdered senselessly, Philadelphia is piling bodies like no tomorrow. Ground Zero is a clusterfuck of bureacracy, at least New Orleans had a stadium to catalyze their rebuilding. Playgrounds have become the answer to solving Africa's water crisis. President Bush just signed the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act. We'll now have the privilege of seeing our tax dollars at work and the assurance that our money isn't spent illegally. We needed a law for that?

Where's OUR RESPONSE? Where's the GALVANIZING FORCE of music?

Turn off the radio. The FORCE is in the crates. Music that asked questions, kicked down doors, and shook your ass. Everything is not all good.
