Music, Money, and the Internet

October 15th, 2007

Last week I downloaded Radiohead’s newest album entitled “In Rainbows”. You might be saying to yourself “Why is that blogworthy news?” Well, the interesting part of this story lies in the details. Check out this ARTICLE.

So what do you think? Should more bands (especially the popular ones) be following Radiohead’s lead? Now don’t just give me the consumer answer (yes, I like free stuff); what about in relation to the music industry? Is such a practice going to positively affect?

I’m not sure I have a definite answer, but I’m starting to think free albums just sound better!

Obama and the God-o-meter

October 8th, 2007

The ARTICLE I’m blogging about today focuses on religion and politics. Recently Presidential Candidate Barack Obama has been visiting (campaigning) in South Carolina, which is a state that has historically been republican (and quite conservative). The Obama Campaign is targeting this state due to its high percentage of African Americans.

I wonder what type of relationship there should be between religion and politics? More specifically, do you feel that local churches should bring in politicians to speak (pray or give small presentations) in their pulpits? This issue shouldn’t be considered a democratic one only, as many conservative republicans are doing the same thing.

What do you think? Would you like to see more politicians “showing their faces” on Sunday mornings in local churches and why?
