Netflix, you have made me very angry...

In yet another sign of our money-grubbing times, my beloved Netflix has decided to raise it's prices. Or, well, they've thinly disguised the price increase as a "split" of their services, offering unlimited streaming for $7.99 and unlimited DVDs for $7.99 instead of having them combined for $9.99.
Frankly, I'm pissed off. Okay, fine...they're a business, they have to make money. I understand. And I also understand what a great deal it is already...however, that still doesn't make it any easier to bear.
Not sure what I'm gonna do. Is anyone else gonna cancel their subscription?

Bill Callahan at the White Rabbit

Check out my latest review in NUVO.net http://bit.ly/qw1Psd
I went into the show with my typical, stone-headed bias against singer-songwriter type performers, but Callahan is different. He reminds me of a cowboy out on the range, singing songs to whoever happens to be around the campfire to listen...or to no one. In fact, that's kind of what makes his lyrics so great: they are poems that seem sprung from his own lonely, yet hopeful soul. He's not trying to impress anyone, he's not trying to sound smart, he's expressing himself and he doesn't give a damn who likes it....and it works.
So check out my review and also give a listen if you can!
