Hey, I know that this thread is over a month old, but I just wanted to see how everyone's Black March was going.
I think that asking people to create a month-long void in their lives is a bit unrealistic. So as for myself, rather than try to boycott mainstream
media, I'm trying to promote indie entertainment. Since music is my thing, I'm spending every day this month posting a new band on my Facebook. The
band is either on an independent label who is not associated with RIAA or on no label at all. I'm doing my best to post a variety of genres to piques
peoples' interests... everything from metal to dance pop... at one point I even posted a solo harpist.
The RIAA says that they represent 90% of marketed music. But marketed music is only like 10% of what's actually out there. There are so many great
undiscovered bands out there, there's no reason to settle for the mainstream.
So anyway, that's my story. How's everybody else doing?
