That’s right. There are poor souls all over the planet who will never have the opportunity to visit a retailer or a web site to buy new music.

So don’t you think you owe it to them to get out there and check out new albums by Hinder, Brad Paisley, Shiny Toy Guns, Mary Mary, The Decemberists, ZZ Top, Alvin & The Chipmunks, Switchfoot, Sarah Brightman and many others?

And after you’ve done that, you can settle in and catch performances by some of those artists on the tube.

Is this a great country or what?

Oh yeah, we almost forgot. If your polling place is still open and you haven’t already voted, get your lazy butt out there and do it.
