Jello Biafra - Become the Media

Posted on Monday, September 06, 2010

The only thing that keeps this from getting a perfect 10 is the fact that a good portion of this material is outdated already. Face it, pre-election material doesn’t have much of an impact in February 2001. It’s kind of late to vote for Ralph Nader when Dubya has already been running the country for more than a month. There is, however, a lot of really potent stuff on the 3 CDs worth of Jello going off on corporate America. My personal favorite material was on the first CD. The piece on the school shooters really hit home. Fifteen years ago, that could have been me - and it could have been Jello or any one of us. People give me shit for supporting the “Trench Coat Mafia” but I personally think they were right. Jello’s other material is equally hard-hitting. The stuff about Hacktivism and becoming the media really make a lot of sense in this day and age when we’re slowly becoming as stupid as the public school system is trying to make us. Some might find his rhetoric to be too left-wing or anti-American but my personal opinion is that no matter what you think about his words, at least do yourself a favor and hear him out. You may end up thinking differently by the time the last CD is over.
