Media on the mind today as Kevin and I talk about the state of major corporate media. With an amazing ability to influence public opinion and a shrinking economic base major news media is becoming increasingly beholden to their corporate masters. Not to mention politics, (then we mention politics).

This Weeks Music: Brought to you by DJ Amber Waves at Open til’ Midnight:
Happy Thanksgiving weekend, Green Majority!
Although buried beneath the commercialism that has captured every holiday and the ready-stuffed turkeys-in-boxes from the supermarket, Thanksgiving is a time I try to check in with myself and remind my heart of the positives in my life. The hope is they’ll keep me warm through the winter, a season I don’t care much for.
Naturally, I am always thankful for the power of music to move us both physically and emotionally, for its presence in my life in utero to now. A strange concert alert that I still cannot confirm the accuracy of set me thinking about this week’s pick, a throwback.
Vancouver’s Rhys Fulber is a formidable force in the Canadian electronic scene – the guy who really brought the genre out of its devoted following into the mainstream. As a member of Front Line Assembly, Delirium and Conjure One, Fulber has worked with an impressive ‘Who’s Who’ of artists, many lending vocals to his stunning sonic creations. I often waver on which project of his I love most, but most days, I’ll choose Conjure One (although Delirium’s Karma album is ridiculously perfect). Conjure One brims with hope, with the wisdom of lessons learned and personal growth, and really taps into the Eastern influences that The Tea Party has also made a mainstay of their sound.
Enjoy two Conjure One tracks that evoke the spirit of the holiday, “Extraordinary Way” and “Centre of the Sun”, and be sure to support what you hear and love.
