It’s Happening….

First there was Radiohead.

Then there was Nine Inch Nails.

Now Jamiroquai & Oasis are possibly jumping on the anti-label bandwagon. (Oasis IS bigger than the Beatles you know…)

I just don’t get it. I mean, the RIAA has gone to such great lengths to protect the artists… They’ve sued cripples, single-mothers, hell, they’ve even sued dead people to try to take care of these talented artists. Why on earth would the artists walk away from the RIAA and the industry that has done so much for them?

It’s nice to see some of the bigger acts that have been in the industry for a while bringing their music to the fans.

With that said… here is an article covering 23 Album Covers that Changed Everything. Who do you think should or shouldn’t be on there?

This is the kind of computer tech that just makes me giddy. It perfectly illustrates the kinds of things that are possible when we can get past the intellectual property BS and start working collectively with the sum of knowledge and experience that is available to man. It’s a bit long for a web clip, but I really recommend watching this. It really is phenomenal.
