I like this guy. He should have a word with the guy in the picture up there.

Never said broken. Never said closet. You are taking a lot of strait answers I gave and just throwing negative adjectives on them to help your argument. Good technology is getting cheaper and cheaper. This is how we got into this mess in the first place. Also, I pay for Internet. All aspects. Email, web streaming on YouTube, the list goes on, downloading is just a piece of that pie. I go to live shows all the time and see great bands. Support them that way. Great music isn’t about money, it’s about artistry. I’d rather have 100 talented artists singing I their closets, then 10 label products singing in a studio.

100% true, but few care.

danner – each individual haircut takes time. He can’t give one haircut and then apply it to 1 million people in the span of seconds therefore the analogy doenst hold water. Also, as I have said before, you are talking about things that have ONE source of revenue. Soup for eating. You buy it you eat it once. Haircut, you get it, your done. Bands tour. Bands sell merch. Bands liscense music for commericals and movies. There are many ways for a band to acquire revenue, it’s just that the market is changing and the idea of the physical song making money is going away. The songs are more so commericals, samples, for furthered fan base support. That means those big time musicians will be making arguably less money, but with people now gaining access to hundreds and thousands of new bands material with ease, more bands can find moderate success. Oh well, guess musicians will have be that without making billions and do it cause they love it. Wah.

Speaking of people who should shut up, how about a history lesson. Pre-In Rainbows Radiohead was under EMI, which they left to SELF RELEASE their next two albums. XL Only got involved in the printing of physical copies of the album. Get your facts straight before you start with your childish personal attacks.

There are cheaper alternatives for all of those. And you don’t have to tour to sell merch, the Internet can do that for you. Little bands can start little.dont need big recording studios. Music is becoming easier and easier to record with technology advances. I am good friends with an indie band from a medium sized city who built their own recording studio! Actually, I know a few who have done this with a Mac and some recording equipment. Indie bands don’t have to have big expensive recording processes, I’ve seen it first hand. When they get bigger, get songs on commericals, shows, etc to get money, can make money from touring and merch, they can afford more, and so on. Don’t need to make CDs either, just go digital. It’s all easier than you make it sound.

You listen to songs over and over again, and often quickly. Comparing something that takes 4 minutes to something that takes a week to months is stupid.

Wow. This is idiotic.

AND to follow that up, if you could download soup, I would be 100% for people downloading soup for free, feed the world, make the world a better place. Sell advertisements on your soup downloading website. If the soup is being bootleg, you could look at the nominal price of making soup to download and do it through chairty, taxes, etc. life finds a way.
