Pitchfork Creates Pitchfork.tv

If ever there was a creation that could be considered an indie behemoth, this might be it. But that doesn’t make it a bad thing. From its now quaint little website:”As a visual extension of the music coverage Pitchfork has provided for more than a decade, and a means of updating and advancing the music television format, the online channel will bring you closer to the artists you love, through original mini-documentaries, secret rooftop and basement sessions, full concerts, exclusive interviews, and the most carefully curated selection of music videos online.”The new site also promises to be “the first online video channel to screen full-length feature films, vintage concerts, and music DVDs free of charge.”Actually, this kind of sounds like everything I’ve ever dreamed of.  I only hope that in 20 years it won’t be running “Indie Rock of Love” in which a bunch of orange-would-be web celebs compete for the chance to bone the dude from Deer Hunter.
