American music has been pretty bland lately. At first, I thought it was just grumpyoldmanism striking, but I've conferred with a few others, so it's not just myself who feels this way (if it is a delusion or mistaken assessment, then at least I'm not alone in thinking it; erroneous thinking is always more comforting in groups--think of cults/religions or political parties). In a lot of ways, it's 1975 again, a very boring period in rock and roll. Fortunately, if it is 1975-like, maybe a grand explosion of punk/new wave is just around the corner. If not, then at least we can content ourselves with a few bright spots, such as Bobby Conn, who has just released a new album, Macaroni. So far, "Govt" is my favorite, but that could change. Conn is a good songwriter, so he gives lots of options.
Are you insane with your marketing budget? Do you have spare change under the couch cushions? Perhaps then you would like to advertise on WredFright.Com. Email Wred at wredfright ATATAT yahoo DOTT com.
Google and Amazon plop ads on here with my permission in the futile hope that I will make money (so far, um, no). I find the ads amusing because they try to tie in with the content of the posts. However, if Google or Amazon has a crush on you, then the ads may deal with things you're interested in instead. Please set your browser accordingly if you object to that (eat those cookies). I also track visitors through a Sitemeter counter just to see if anyone's reading this silly thing (yes, people are), but otherwise I don't give a hoot who you are. Enjoy the blog and love Big Brother! I also don't receive money or other compensation for Yips, though I have nothing against money or other compensation (that's why I run advertising and sometimes use Amazon referrals for links); if I'm selling something (say, my books), then it will be pretty obvious I'm selling it . . . say, have you thought about buying a signed copy of The Pornographic Flabbergasted Emus lately?
