Jagged Little Sellout?
Inspired by the Starbucks Delocator, the folks at Stay Free! have created the Alanis Morissette Delocator. Some folks are peeved at Alanis, and it's not about her misunderstanding the meaning of "irony" this time.
Alanis' latest album is an acoustic version of Jagged Little Pill, and for the first six weeks it will be available exclusively through Starbucks. Even if you would like to go to your friendly local record store and purchase a copy, you can't. Not for a while, anyway. Instead of going to Starbucks to buy quieter versions of songs you've heard a million times, why not treat yourself to something new? Stay Free! is being subversive about it and urging people to use their post about the delocator, with links to "small-label female singer/songwriters who are not Alanis Morissette" as a link for Alanis Morissette. Okay, done. So I couldn't resist going a bit superliminal. Definitely worth checking out though -- links to some excellent artists who are not Alanis Morissette. One, Michelle Shocked, has a free show tonight at Amoeba in Hollywood.
