Tris McCall: The Internet, Music Sites, and Glenn McDonald

In his August 26th entry, Tris McCall writes on a topic very dear to the donewaiting heart:

If the Internet is supposed to be so big, so multifaceted, and so ungoverned, why do all the music review sites now look the same? More disturbingly, why do they all have the same opinions?

It’s because fashion is a more demanding master than any editor could ever be. When you read Pitchfork (which you really shouldn’t), you can practically hear the footsteps of generally-accepted indie opinion hounding the writers.

Tris’ is a voice that I value highly, one that I think we should be aware of, and strive to honor.

As Tris might say, “Rock.”
