In the 1980s pop artist Andy Warhol started something sensational about mass produced art: art that speaks to common culture brilliantly.

This tradition perhaps began with Scott Joplin's distinctly primalist African-American groove piano music known as 1900s Ragtime and evolved into the explosive 1980s street culture music phenomenon of beatboxing and hip-hop, music that was facilitated by new developments in synthesizer, radio, and drumbox technologies.

The advent of the Information Age has ushered in new inspiration for high-access streamed music and indeed has catalyzed the popularity of the Electronic Music era, a genre of music that speaks to the rhythm of industrialization.

If you read a comic book of Spider-Man in the 1980s you may have heard of technology wonder consumerism villain avatars such as Videoman and Electro or tuned into the urbanization street performance stylings of "break-dancers" such as Rubber-Band Man and the common man lyricism of radio-trendy slang lingo musicians such as Run DMC.

These developments suggest that couture-snappy Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Soul Food" (1997) can be successfully advertised as hearty social symbols of lifestyle emotiveness.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
