Johnny just put this in the comments section of my recent rant. I haven’t seen it yet, but I’m about to watch. Looks really interesting and very relevant to what I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. Here’s the film’s site.

The documentary features a wide variety of musicians from ?uestlove to My Morning Jacket to Les Paul, and it’s narrated by Forest Whitaker, so you know it’s good.

Never have so few companies controlled so much of the music played on the radio and for sale at retail stores. At the same time, there are more bands and more ways to discover their music than ever. Music seems to have split in two – the homogenous corporate product that is spoonfed to consumers and the diverse independent music that finds devoted fans online and at clubs across the country.

Sidenote: ahhaha Erykah Badu is hilarious.

Create your own publicity. Do some ho shit. Ya know? Do it. Do some ho shit.

No you don’t need to be able to sing. Just move your mouth and shit. They’ll work that out.
