A Mini Rant

We went to Hastings in Yukon today so Duncan could spend his gift certificate that my Aunt Gayle and Uncle BJ gave him for his birthday. Hastings has books, video games, music and a few related toys but doesn't do anything really well. The one in Yukon is actually better than a lot of Hastings I've been in though and they also sell used CDs.

Duncan picked out an X-Men Gamecube game that was $20 and I browsed to see if anything caught my fancy. I ended up buying a Me First and the Gimme Gimmes CD for Mike, the new Sarah McLachlan CD and a Maria McKee CD that was marked down to $4.99.

The rant part comes in when I was looking through the Country section of the CDs. I was looking for a particular CD to send to someone as a gift and wasn't finding it in the Country section even though it was most definitely a Country CD.

And then I notice right next to Country is an area labeled Americana. Lo and behold there's that CD and a whole bunch of CDs by artists I consider to be among the best and most talented in Country music. What the fuck? Americana??? They're Country for cryin' out loud! Kick Shania and Faith and Toby and all those twits out of there and move the Americana artists into their rightful places in the Country section.

Americana, what the fuck is that? Is anyone paying attention to that section or just being puzzled by it and ignoring all of the artists stuck there? What a load of complete and utter crap.
