how is chickfactor different from mainstream media?
jennifer o’connor: it digs DEEP. it has HEART. it is MORE FUN.
matt lorelei: in every way possible. would the mainstream media ever run a review as brilliant as: “S*H*I*T S*A*N*D*W*I*C*H”? I think not.
gaylord cf/wfmu: chickfactor wouldn’t know how to be market-driven if it tried. and it doesn’t.
