Why would it be more interesting if it was just on record? Does it matter if it is artists that everyone listens to?
Speaking of that, did you get your daily dosage of Arvo Pärt on MTV? :D

Ulrich Schnauss' stuff is pretty inspiring to me, especially a strangely isolated place.

Huh, I didn't know that secede was still around, thanks for pointing this out. I really liked bye bye gridlock traffic, especially "outran" and the title song. I guess the ex-m3rck artists have must have all dispersed to other labels by now.
