Friday Nineties – The Breeders – Cannonball
They didn’t really have hipsters in the 90’s. But it was when “indie” bands started out, I think? So if there were bands everyone hadn’t heard of then there were immediately people who mocked those that hadn’t heard of them. So I guess that means there WERE hipsters. That said, I’m not really sure what indie means. I think it is when a company whose job it is to make money off of music thinks you stink and they won’t make any money off of your music.
Wait, that is the kind of smart mouth answer I always give to things so maybe I need to apply a little more thought.
No wait. I don’t. I don’t need to give it anymore thought, and I’ll tell you why. I know I have talked about this before but I don’t remember where. If it was here then whatevs. I will refund your money if you are gonna cry about it.
Anyway, the Internet is this great equalizer, right? People’s true talent will come out and people will get the people who really deserve fame into the light. Right? So if that is true, how come the only two people from the Internet who got famous in real life are Tila Tequila and Perez Hilton? Think about it. Maybe, just maybe, the people who decide to make finding things to entertain the masses might no more than a bunch of whiny jerks who have an inflated sense of self-worth. And MAYBE you don’t see anything from Kickstarter in your Netflix queue because making movies and writing books and stuff is HARD.
Anyway, you will remember the bass hook from this song. This is a post about a song, remember? Video after the jump.
