fight the power
once again, i'm wondering where the lions are? today, pop culture is sponsored by an endless stream of products. in 1989, you sponsored things yourself, w/ a trip to the local record store and a blast from your boombox or walkman. has our cultural landscape really changed that much? well, the music business certainly has... but the soulful feeling you get when listening to an engaging song? never... combined w/ a powerful film (spike lee's "do the right thing"), the results can be devastating, even life-changing. here's one that moved me... "fight the power"
*note: think the only product placement in this video are the two def jam records spinning on terminator X's decks...
