    Where do you live again bored? How easy is it to keep up with the American music scene? I've been getting more and more into the British music scene lately, and that's not too easy to keep up with from America. You aren't flooded with it daily.
    **sorry for extending your question a lil bizzle*

    I live in the Dominican Republic. It's very easy to keep up with the "gringo" music scene and everything else in general. Most of the people [about 80%] barely know english and listen just to their crappy -20 times more obnoxious than folk music- "bachata" music. But teens like me going from medium-high economic class and above get very influenced by american music. We listen to all the music you guys listen. Now.. ignorant fashion bubble head chumps just like whatever's mainstream, but some of us are really into good music. We don't care if its mainstream or not, we just dig good music. Here we have two types of american music listeners: " ignorant weak pathetic fools " that just follow the trend, and people that like what they hear [old school gansta rap like nwa; at-the-drive-in, tool, nin, etc. A lot of us have the 'this country sucks big time' culture so we tend to follow another country's "life" . There's no country music lovers here though [thank God]. Some even watch the superbowl like they're native from us or something, but that's just playing stupid (main sport is baseball). Our television is filled with about 90% of U.S.A. channels, maybe 7% dominican channels, and 3% foreign like french or german.

    And btw, dominican republic and the caribbean is in America, so that makes us americans too . YOu would mean north-americans .


    "O'reilly books : Dominican Republic in a nutshell"= bananas + beaches . yes you could this donkey kong's lair..

    British music ? we don't get that hear unless it gets mainstream attention in the US lol

    A unofficial mix CD taken from http://www.stonesthrow.com/. After they [the label, Stones Throw] found out about this CD, they bought a copy, ripped it, and made it available on their website for nothing!

    Is that wrong?

    Actually I meant United States. I hate the habit that we've all gotten into of calling the United States of America just plain "America." "America" is two whole continents, not just one country. So yes, I fall into the trap as well. But I still hate it

    That drives makes some Geography teachers crazy here. With the AFS transfer plan we get a lot of students from the U.S. here, and teachers just go berserk hearing them: -So we're you from? "America" -No sh*t, WHERE.

    BTW, in a year or so, you guys are going to get a massive flood of the puerto-rican "porn music" called reggaeton. I know it already has a lot of buzz [I visit the US every year.. I'm thinking bout going to europe this year so might skip this year ], but diddy just made "bad boy latino", and a lot of artists are getting into it. I hate that damn music oh my.. it is not even music, it's a ultra loud "bump bump noise"

    BTW, spanish is my language, but all i hear is english muziek.

    I know. She had a heart attack and all. But she's fine now.

    This month we had an event concerning El Chavo at a local University's auditorium. I went there and I was shocked because they managed to fill the place with 700 people (it was never so crowded at the classes when I studied there, heheh) and raise around 800 kg of food to be donated to the University's Hospital. That was great!
