y'know wot I'm a real sukka for lately?
those funkin' bonus DVD's they're chuckin' with some music CD's lately..
maaaaan they fokken ROCK :-)
been seeing 'em lately on a few new releases.. the new Eminem, Queens of the Stone Age, Foo Fighters, Jurassic 5.. and now, today.. the new ZWAN album I picked up.. they're these really cool abstract / aimless / day-in-the-life-of kinda "fly on the wall" things usually.. with all these quirky little insights into the vibe, the buzz.. of the band itself.. y'know.. the sorta shit that inspires 'em.. you get to take a little trip into their headspace.. minus any pretentious promo bullshit, hype.. or gloss.. it's just this really cool raw and unprocessed look at wot makes these musicians tick.. and seriously dude.. for me, that primal exploration of the band, and the music.. is wot it's all about.. can't get enough of the stuff ;)
the new Jurassic 5, for example.. features footage cruising around with band members around their neighborhood, random piss-fartin' around day to day activities.. the little random obsessions, on star wars, found objects, DJ's jamming with pushtaps in a hotel bathroom.. just taking a little trip in wot makes 'em tick.. it's totally unstructured.. but, you really get a better understandin' / perspective of the music..
so yeah.. seriously buzzin' off these little gimmicks..
I don't care if it's a nutty sale's gimmick to get my to buy these CD's, instead of just ripping it off WinMX (like everyone else.. including me father.. hahahahahaha), for me.. I'm a sukka for little rewards like this..
gimme funkin' extras like this, and I'll come back for more.. I'll buy it up.. ;)
gimme a "copy controlled" CD that wont play on my portable MP3/CD player.. and I'd much rather just steal ya music off the internet..
somethin' for you record company freaks to think about, aye?
