Standard

I love this song by Brian Eno. Hope you do too.

For the most part I’m giving up putting actual music videos in my blog. They tend to refuse to play and just tell you to go watch it on You Tube. Is this another example of the music industry just not comprehending the Internet? I know, for example, that Gretchin liked a song I posted so much that she purchased it. (“Go Places” New Pornographers.) But if you just get a black screen that says “go watch it on You Tube,” you’ve put another step between potential customer and music. I make no money from posting a video. No ads on this site. If this sort of proprietary-everything is the future of the Web, we must build another Web.
