and on a further note
indie, in its current status, might just as well be called Windy for all the good it does in embodying the spirit of the independent. Indie used to mean different, edgy, emotional. because freedom rocks. now anything can be Indie, and everything is. Even if its signed on to a major record label.
i'm like, "hello!" that's as bad as emo stemming from 'emotional' and translating into 'melodramatic'...
where's the purity?
