I'm not a fan of TV. I don't have cable, and the television set that resides in my home is the same one that I played first generation Nintendo on 15 years ago. However, I've become slightly addicted to a couple of TV shows (namely Modern Family, Gossip Girl and House) which I view on Hulu (a website that allows you to watch a selection of TV shows and movies for free). This slight habit lead me to a few cool, music-related shows that I thought might interest you, the SubEx public.
First up, Embedded...this extraordinary show takes you behind the scenes and within the heads of your favorite indie stars. Everyone from Amanda Palmer (who showcases the power of Twitter by performing a secret show in the LA-area that starts with a single tweet) to The Decemberists (who speak of the pains of being "too straight-laced for the weirdos and way too weird for the straight-laced people") makes an appearance. Basically, if you like to peak behind the curtain, you should check it out.
Also. there's the standout documentary, "Before the Music Dies." This movie is a must see if the music you enjoy isn't heard on your typical FM station (91.7 is the AWESOME exception). It explains the breakdown of the music industry (both on the radio and record industry fronts), why really talented musicians are unable to make a living while pop princesses gyrate their way to millions and a few other music-related conundrums that I've pondered more than a few times.
And really, in this weather, who wants to venture outdoors anyways (hello, Arctic Blast)? Stay in. Catch a free movie, and maybe learn something about your favorite band.
