Once upon a time there were these dudes just jamming in a garage. One of them came up with a cool song idea. They made that into a cool song...then they came up with other cool tunes... Then the dudes came up with a few thousand dollars and recorded their 3 best tunes for a demo.... then they (or the hired somebody) took this demo to the Big-Shot Record Labels and after being turned down a bunch one label signs them. Millions of dollars pour into making a Super Cool Tune and then 11-14 not as cool tunes to go on a compact disk. The Big-Shot Record Label pays radio stations to play the Super Cool Tune, pays millions for an expensive video for MTV (often owned by the same parent company as Big-Shot Record Label), pays for posters, production, artwork, mastering, manufacturing, advertising, advertising disguised as interviews on radio, TV and in magazines. The put the dudes on tour with merchandising, ticket sales, refreshment concessions...etc etc...until the dudes recouped the millions of dollars fronted to them by The Big-Shot Record Label and live happily ever after.<br><br>This is a fairy tale this doesn't happen very much anymore. CD sales have plummeted and record labels a less willing to gamble on unproven acts (especially since 9 out of 10 albums fails to re-coup on the investment). The big labels are tightening their grip on what they release to the public attempting to maximize profit and control while minimizing investment and risk. The Big Shot Labels were releasing "product". The product construct is breaking down and giving way to "content". Product is a specific quantifiable unit like a compact disk..***ntent is a diffuse intangible mist of information which may include playable music files, digital graphics, text, self-referencing hyper-links, streaming video, blogs, webzines, discussion boards, etc... Content has a wealth of incarnations and forms but works at a fraction of the cost of "product".. Content does not conform to regulations or format restrictions, it is chaotic and free-flowing. The realm of ideals has never been easier to manifest.<br><br>With the Internet, anyone anywhere can access any type music anytime of day...and usually for free. The Internet has provided the information on how to make music, the digital format to record music, and a distribution channel for music. The Internet is not only replacing the conventional promotion and distribution channels used by the traditional recording industry, it is DISSOLVING the recording industry. Top down distribution is being replaced by peer to peer digital distribution, mostly without the knowledge of industry professionals.<br><br>This is a documentary from the front lines of the San Francisco Bay Area Independent Rock scene. This is a discovery of the present and a dialog on the future. In this footage, I interview the musicians I meet along my journey (my peers) to promote discussion about having the power to generate "media content" and it's place in the current time. As an observer and a participant in this epoch of time I hope to expose and demonstrate my findings.<br><br>In the first episode I take the camera to the 7th annal Bands 4 Bands awards ceremony. The band I play guitar for, Swaybone, had been nominated for "Best Band" award. I brought a camera along to see what I could discover. In this installment I interview Theo Ceder, lead vocalist, guitarist, and songwriter for Swaybone on our walk from the car to the venue the ceremony is held. He too has thoughts and opinions on the time we live in and how "content" is disseminated.

Brought to you by the makers of the Oscar-nominated The War Room, AL FRANKEN: GOD SPOKE is an intimate and hilarious behind-the-scenes look at the life of the former Saturday Night Live comedian turned author, radio host, and political satirist. Go on the road with Franken as he wages his unrelenting one-man crusade against the hypocrisies and cynicism of the far right. From the birth of the liberal Air America radio network to the floor of the Republican National Convention, there is no better tour guide through the tumult of recent American politics than Al Franken. Acclaimed directors Nick Doob and Chris Hegedus provide a front-row seat to the entertaining and often absurd theater of America's partisan politics, while telling the story of Franken's transformation from irreverent gadfly of the American right to still irreverent potential Senate candidate. Including footage of his well-publicized dust-ups with Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly, AL FRANKEN: GOD SPOKE is a bitingly funny look at the business of politics

This is a surrealist/experimental short film made by me and two other film students for our A-level film project (our names are listed in the credits). It had to be split into two sections due to its 12 minute running time so treat the two parts as one film. The film was nominated for a collage arts award (the film and media Oscars at Peter Symonds). Please excuse the jagged lines which occur with movement. They happened when we lowered the film's quality in order to fit it on the net. We would be interested to here some of your interpretations. Directed, edited, written and produced by Sam Payler, Leo West and Stanley Harvey Acting Credits in order of appearance: Searcher... Stanley Harvey Lost... Leo West The Connection... Sam Payler

Inside Rudy's Immigration Flip-Flop Rudy Giuliani and Mitt Romney are currently locked in a struggle for front-runner status in the Republican presidential nomination race, and one issue that's emerged to define this early period of he race is that of illegal immigration. Giuliani is taking a hard line these days, claiming he can put a complete stop to it once and for all. But this seems to be a fairly recent position he's taken. We take a look at his past statements, and his comical attempts at squaring them all.

The cat that like to play with ..... very cute..... The term soft drink (more commonly known as soda, pop, or soda pop in parts of the United States, Canada and in the U.K. as well as coke in parts of the U.S.[1]) originally applied to carbonated drinks made from concentrates, although it now commonly refers to almost any cold drink that does not contain alcohol. The name "soft drink" specifies a lack of alcohol by way of contrast to the term "hard drink" and the term "drink", the latter of which is nominally neutral but often carries connotations of alcoholic content. Beverages like colas, sparkling water, lemonade, squash, and fruit punch are among the most common types of soft drinks, while hot chocolate, tea, coffee, milk, tap water, alcohol, and milkshakes do not fall into this classification.

Ever have the urge to take something you no longer want or need and crush it to bits? OfficeMax gave Denver residents the opportunity to put their past behind them today when it brought the worlds largest Rubberband Ball to town. Locals nominated objects to be squashed by the 4,594-pound, Guinness World Records-Certified Ball. Finalists were chosen for a crushing ceremony outside of Denver Pavilions. One winner received a digital camera prize package (a $519.93 value) and a pair of concert tickets to summer chill out at Red Rocks with Dierks Bentley. Some of the items squashed by the tremendous Rubberband Ball included: a tractor, a statue and a microwave. In addition, OfficeMax invited consumers to be photographed next to the mammoth ball - which stands more than five feet tall, with a circumference of 19 feet and is comprised of approximately 175,000 rubber bands - and visit newly renovated OfficeMax stores. The ball will also greet visitors at the taste of Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Balloon Festival in Denver. For more information, visit www.officemax****.
