What is mainstream? By definition—- the parts are
A.)main; which is to mean “Most” important or recognized.
B.) Streams are trends, courses, or paths. In 2012 what is mainstream?
Here’s the irony for loathing the mainstream: Most people mistake the idea of Mainstream as somehow being familiar and unthreatening to the masses and therefore resent it because it is somehow artistically and aesthetically inferior.
Instead of pontificating in what “is” or “is not” mainstream— take a mirror, and ask your self what is your main? Stream? What is your dial tone? Stop resenting what “is”, and create what will “be”.
Is it because you are scared that CREATING a stream can be treacherous work? The rocks, the trees, the roots.
