I find it very disturbing that Wal-Mart is shaping cultural tastes. They sell less than 2000 books, CDs, and Videos with only the biggest selling titles represented. By doing so they make the big hits even bigger while making it more difficult for independent titles to sell. I own almost no Top-40 albums; almost all of the CDs I own are from indie labels and lesser-known artists. When I shop for DVDs, I like to browse the foreign & indie films, not the big blockbusters. I hope the little guys can survive.
