Given my complaints about Virgin and the latest Massive Attack CD, it’s not surprising that I went into town today to exchange that aforementioned record for Goldfinger’s self titled album; an old-time favorite (at least for reminiscing’s sake). While I was there (with Fiona and Nic) we also managed to catch Power and Terror: Noam Chomsky in Our Times and rifle through a few bargain bins.
A stop at Quality Comics bought me the store’s last copy of PVP Issue 1, something I’m glad I got a hold of, since it is everyone’s responsibility… everyone’s, to support artists whose work we consume. I’ll place comic creators, writers, musicians, and software developers into the category of “artists” for now. Massive Attack, however, fall into the category of “artists who are poorly represented by their publishers”, and thusly lose my support. Don’t worry about me, I’m still kinda pissed about that CD.
