    Fun post! I love checking out indie films, music, artwork, etc. Sometimes the less controlled is much more expressive. When you don’t have a corporation funding your dream you can really be yourself and the creativity is that much stronger! ~ Angela, Whole Foods Living, http://www.wholefoodsliving.blogspot.com/
