quick addendum

I don't know if I made it clear when I was talking about the song, "Bubbles", that the original lyrics had the line "When will Jesus come again?", and the verse with that line was replaced with "Mojo Jojo's on the rage again..." and such. I hope you got to hear that song. It's really awesome. There's a great guitar solo that Dressy Bessy didn't recreate in their version. DB did their version in just two days, though. And it's a good thing, too, because the people putting together the Powerpuff CD were asking someone else to cover it, but Kindercore was able to say, "Hey! We already have our version!"

It's an interesting story, but I don't know if I can give you all the details. At least, not on here.

And I just want to say that I have no comment about Turkey, which came up as a subject of discussion in the comments under the playlist for whatever reason.

Well, I think that boogiepop, WCSB, and the internet are doing a wonderful job in promoting a global community through music. I just heard on the BBC Worldservice that Indie rock is really popular in northern China, whereas southern China has a preference for hiphop.
My favorite Chinese band is the Pancakes from Hong Kong. There's also an all-female punk band from China that I like called Hang On the Box.
