The worm has turned mate.

You don't like fucking Action Bronson and you are going to pay.

i met a girl who did a porno with him. she's fat too, they did a fat porno together. all my stories are 6-18 months old now.

:lol:

Crispin, you know when you're always going on about how the shit you like has millions of hits on YouTube and everyone in a club will have heard of it etc, isn't that just the hipster mentality - but inverted? In as much as in basing what you listen to on what other people like. Taking pride in that seems just as fucking dumb as taking pride in listening to stuff no one has heard of it. But it's the same exact thing. So weird.

i know what you mean but no, because the hipster thing is seeking out obscure music. i don't seek out popular music, i just like what millions of other people like right now. finger on the pulse.

Do they still make Smash Hits magazine? Serious question.

if you thought about it for more than two seconds, people are never gonna stop making music. it doesn't need an "industry". films/games, ok, you need a massive team and shitloads of money to do basically anything. most of my favourite music from the last few years was made by teenagers and uploaded to Youtube.

Most of my favourite music is made by small bands who deserve the $5 that they sell their music for on bandcamp. Just because you get all your music from youtube doesn't mean people don't deserve money for what they make.

that's not what i mean. just saying this myth the music industry has created for itself that it's necessary is just that, a myth. the entire thing could collapse tonight and tomorrow a thousand new albums would be out anyway. throwing money at music doesn't make it any better.

Buy digital usually. Just bought Kaito's latest album from Boomkat this morning.

Downloaded a large torrent of Acid Mothers Temple stuff though as well as Amazon won't let me buy the mp3s in Ireland anymore.

Last year I bought 24 CDs, a record low for me. However, I'm at an age now (early 40s) where, and I hate to admit it, seeking out new and interesting music isn't the main driving force. Instead I like to fall back on old favourites, or delve into the albums I've accumulated over the last 25-odd years. There are times when something grabs me, but they're getting fewer, not because music these days is crap, but I just don't have the patience, not right now anyway.
