Good day Jammies. I’ve got some fresh new tracks for you to sink your teeth in this weekend! Before we begin though, I must ask- what is freedom to you? You can answer this for yourself, but within the context of the answer I would like you to consider the fact that the House just passed CISPA (SOPA’s runner up).
To me, this means a couple of important things. A couple of these sobering points include the following: One- In a culture today (as earlier disccused, a remix culture) many of the things we do on youtube, in the music world, film, literature, etc will be considered illegal (or will incite govt. e-surveillance). Two- The days and abilities of sharing that make this barrier reef-like society called the Internet will be severely if not completely hindered. Three- Govt. power exhibits a rachet effect (meaning it is VERY DIFFICULT to gain back any of the freedoms you may LOSE through this legislation). Please, consider all of these things. Consider your friends, your favorite websites, your P2P sharing, your ipods, your hulu, your privacy, and your “everything internet related.”
– CISPA Petition – (775,000+ and counting)
It is up to YOU to make sure YOUR rights are protected. The entertainment industry is based on a profit structure that is always growing and has no wishes to stop (as evident by this legislation). At the end of the day it means less freedom and more accountability to you while the entertainment industry will experience higher potential profit margins (hypothetically) and the government will enjoy new abilities to exercise big brother surveillance. Enjoy the music… while you can.
Pick 1: Summer Heart – I Wanna Go
Pulsing rhythms and bright melodies compliment the sunshine on your face.
Pick 2: Electric Guest – This Head I Hold
I was uncertain about picking this one, but it seems to compliment the track above.
**Bonus1: 3_6_Mafia & Young Buck & 8Ball & MJG vs. Dazz Band – Let it Stay Fly (Skratch Bastid Mash)
Whip this fly track… whip it good.
**Bonus2: Purity Ring – Obedear
This new Purity Ring won’t dissapoint 😀
Until Next Time.
