Feature

Friday, April 18, 2008

Corn-based shrink wrap on the CDs, biofuel buses, organic hair spray: this is the greening of rock n’ roll. Sarah Lemanczyk talked to the indie rock band Cloud Cult, which manages its carbon footprint and has fun at the same time.

This had to have been the most unintentionally hilarious segments I've heard in a while. Rock concerts have to be among the most pollutin', carbon emittin' events on the face of the planet. Yet the "artists" were congratulating themselves for using non-aerosol hair products and for urging their audience members to "think green". I almost drove off the road I was laughing so hard. It was like an exquisite self-parody.

How about leading by example and personal sacrifice, instead of just urging it on others. Oh, and btw - spending a couple of hours playing your guitar for free does not constitute a personal sacrifice.
