Remove Starbucks And Disney By Stop Shopping Gospel Choir

Tomorrow is Buy Nothing Day.

Buy Nothing Day

So, what should you do while you are not buying stuff tomorrow?

(a) Credit card cut up... "Volunteers stand in a shopping mall with a pair of scissors and a sign offering a simple service: to put an end to extortionate interest rates and mounting debt with one considerate cut."

(b) Whirl–mart... "This activity has the advantage of being most likely to piss off security personnel. You and nine of your closest friends silently drive your shopping carts around in a long, inexplicable conga line without ever actually buying anything."

(c) More ideas... here.


(d) Get down with Reverend Billy And The Stop Shopping Gospel Choir.

"Remove Starbucks And Disney" (mp3)
"Stop Shopping" (mp3)
"Reverend Billy Interview On WNYC" (mp3) (source: The Brian Lehrer Show)
"Credit Card Exorcism On WNYC" (youtube)

And if you are gonna buy something, why not buy a book about anti-consumerism?

New Direction By The YMD

The YMD (formerly known as Yah Mos Def) are gonna release Excuse Me, This Is Yah Mos Def early next year. Now, this MAY be changed to Excuse Me, This Is The YMD, but I'm just guessing.

Listen: "New Direction" ( mp3)

Hey, anyone sampling Bikini Kill and Minor Threat have got my vote, and with a song title like "Jive Like Jehu," one can only hope for a feedbacky sampling of Drive Like Jehu. You know, something like this... "Caress" (yousendit).

One Man Tag Crew By Dub Trio

"Not Alone" (yousendit mp3) by Dub Trio with Mike Patton/Peeping Tom
