Hard rock fans, buy this “Red Dragon” album by Room 333, which is compared to “La Gargola” by Chevelle! https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

I’ve been told it’s just random as to who’s cell phone this can be read on. Hopefully it works on yours??

Cassettes, Vinyl, &, CDs? There’s a reason the music industry switched to digital files. Convenience, doesn’t take up physical space & no worrying about an album getting scratched. More groups might be better off signing a distribution deal like Foo Fighters did? The problem with iTunes is that the rich/label get richer & the artist(s) get pennies for an album download. The music industry needs to figure something out fast or your new favourite artist won’t be around for long, unless they can afford to tour their butt off! It’s really a catch 22. They can’t sell enough albums to have money & they don’t have money to tour & get the word out themselves.

Really? Just legalize gay marriage in the USA. You can either have gay couples live together illegally or legally. Same with the marijuana laws. Either way it’s happening & politicians are wasting their time & money preventing stuff that really doesn’t matter.
