|Maybe if it said "ENGLISH ONLY, PLEASE"|
Regardless of what rumors you've heard, or the excessive and rather inane coverage we give inconsequential humans like the Kardashians, the Wests (and their upcoming hybrid model) and the Biebers of the world; your Broward/Palm Beach New Times has always thought of its readership first and foremost. We strive to provide a voice and a line of interest for the local reader who deserves better than our mainstream counterparts. While we can't cover everything, at times, we try to make amends.
Imagine the eye-opener suffered by this County Grind correspondent this past Monday while on route to the Forgetters show in west Pembroke Pines, when he realized that the sonic needs and necessities of the White Power community here in Broward County had been ignored for so long?! Especially those armed with a pen, a buttload of ignorant hatred, and with a taste for delicious pan con lechón, cascos de guayaba con queso crema, and fritas.
And to think! These constituents of ours are forced by ethnic expansion to shop at Sedano's! That's right, the image above was taken inside the men's room of the Pines Boulevard store. We'd like to set the record straight, and do so with music.More »

Oh man, this one's been going on slightly unchecked since 2008, and it just keeps getting more stunning! Recently, Rebecca Kadaga, the current speaker of parliament in Uganda, declared that the her country's Anti-Homosexuality bill, better known as the "Kill Gays Bill" will pass as a Christmas "gift" to the Ugandan people. Whoa! This is progressive thinking, my friends, straight out of the Idi Amin school of thought!
Of course, there's some extreme backpedaling and spinning coming out of the Ugandan government with some super convoluted explanations concerning how the bill is meant to take effect, but this is the same country that just a couple of years ago printed the names and addresses of suspected (suspected!) homosexuals. There's a petition going against the bill that you can sign here.
Now let's be the first to say what we know is on your mind: This is so fucking assbackwards! We are first and foremost, a music blog, so we present the Ugandan people with the alternative Christmas gift of openly gay musicians, so that a little music in their hearts may soften their stance on the issue.More »
