Netflix and Bill
It’s kind of odd how much product marketing has inserted itself into the national dialogue regarding politics.
In terms of lobbyists, powerful companies have ALWAYS had some influence on laws passed that would personally benefit them.
However, in terms of large enterprises taking a vocal stance on social, economic, medical, or political issues – usually, they’ve remained out of the spotlight. Until now…
Over the past few years, more and more companies are pushing or supporting a political agenda – either via donations, commercials, or public announcements. And Netflix is following suit.
As of late May, Netflix declared they would consider pulling their services from the entire state if the controversial “Heartbeat Bill” were to pass. (Probably because the bill would significantly cut back on a lot of “Netflix and Chill” time.)
But in all seriousness, it’s a pretty bold step. This is what you need to know.
The first time I heard someone say “EDM”, I was confused. I had never heard this term before. When the person who had introduced me to this word proceeded to play me the music classified as EDM, I was even more confused.
You see, I was very familiar with the beats that were blaring from the depths of his shitty speakers. I had been listening to jungle, drum and bass, breakbeats, house, and trance since my early 20’s. But this … this wasn’t the same.
Admitting that I used to be into the rave scene in my youthful days is a double-edged sword. On one hand, I’m proud to have earned my stripes and proclaim part of a very underground community that bonded over a love for techno and what the scene represented.
On the other hand, I think about all the horrible Hot Topics clothing and Claire’s jewelry and drug use and I kind of want to forget I was ever part of the rave scene at all.
Regardless, it happened. And it was fun while it was happening and this generation will never fully grasp just how awesome it was (kind of like we will never fully grasp how awesome the original Woodstock was for our parents).
Here is why raving in the 90’s is so much better than raving nowadays and why you should probably just find a new scene, altogether.
