Stranded In Stereo: What the future may hold.

What the future may hold.

The last few years have been weird, in 2005 everyone wanted to be Gang of Four and Joy Division, then Bloc Party one of the main bands leading this revolve'olution became The Chemical Brothers. Every band in New York went electro, The Yeah Yeah Yeah's became Blondie, Julian Casablanca's the guy who led the rock revolution of the early 2000's also became Blondie. I mean i like Blondie but i am so sick of over produced disco beats and free Pro-Tools Modular synthesis and generally I'm sick of people repeating the past and producing "lets remember a time that i wasn't even born in" music.

Its pretty rad that
Animal Collective are one of the top bands of the year as there album is pretty obscure sounding (and girls is a unforgettable track), its also great that Grizzly Bear became one of the biggest bands of the year with even Jay Z and Beyonce kicking up a hype storm about them, but sorry to sound like a narc here, they both sound like The Beach Boys, just listen to Pet Sounds. Then you have Muse doing there Radiohead meets Queen album, if they actually sounded like Muse when they started instead of Radiohead using 19th century orchestral progressions id be more mad, but they never sounded original.

There have been many good releases this year as well, in fact its been one of the most creative years in music yet, but this isn't about that, this is my angry rant. I love music, i love music more then anything, i spend all day listening to it, creating it, blogging about it, masturbating to it and yet it still pisses me off so much, commercial radio is still a horrible nightmare of Taylor Swifts and Britney throwbacks, even commercial hip hop which used to impress me with its radical production has taken a step back in time. MTV which has sucked for decades still sucks, unless your into 3 songs all of which by Drake. Pitchfork who i used to trust has left me behind in a maze of gay'ish dance anthems and repetitive 808 beats. Who do i turn to for help, who can i trust. As a average show from the 90's once told me, "
trust no one".

Just to prove a point (a obvious one at that as commercial music always sucks) i leave you with the current no.1 single in the USA.

Can anyone recommend the top performing Endpoint Security software for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central network security
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!

I have an unlocked iphone that I'm using in the country of Azerbaijan with a prepaid sim card.. Every few minutes I get a message on my phone that indicates new charges for internet use even though I'm not actually on the internet. I'm guessing it has something to do with the sim card, a feature that needs to be disabled or the service provider (Azercell). Has anyone ever had this problem or knows how to fix it?
