And our kids will be saying the same thing 25 years from now. Unless of course robots take over and then the robots will be saying it in a very monotone voice, but with auto tune and maybe a wobbly bass line in the background.

Of course it will always be the same, but I like to complain on stuff ^^

Re: A simple walk through the local mall tells the word "musician" = "mythical beast"

Now that everybody is making "music", being a musician isnīt really amazing. I know lots of people that can "play" an instrument or "make" music. Most of the time itīs either a few half-assed chords and some cheesy-ass tunes made on an acer aspire one (a netbook).

Fuck this world already.

I am talking about how everyone and their mother are making music now because itīs so easy to download a cracked version of FL studio and massive and vengeance samples to produce music.

which when I look around, is what most of the kids I see doing.


Great maybe if they want a few thousand fews on myspace, they won't be feeling it when a few years later selling a bunch of cds they'll get hit with royalty infringement.

copyrighted sampling and ripping off big name synths I consider just copycat tactics.

but how many of them actually make good music with them? just look at all of the people spamming on youtube, a great majority of them suck ass. yeah, people can get a guitar for a bargain, but how many of them are going to make good music? being able to make music with computer software is a great thing, because computers have allowed us as musicians to push our skills to the limits, and have access to industry standard equipment to make the great music that some of us have the potential to make. the musicians with talent can now get noticed, and have access to the equipment they deserve to use. in the 80's, you had to have either connections with the music industry or thousands of dollars to afford industry standard equipment. the average talented musician in the 80's didnt have the money to afford a gibson guitar, a nuemann u87, a 24 channel mixer, etc., etc. does a beginner violinist with a stradivarius make him good? answer that yourself, it should be easy enough to figure out.

Does it really matter? Do you think Lil Jon or Nicky minaj needed talent to get where they are? Can you stand their music for longer than 2 minutes?

What the OP is complaing about is how talentless people are being rewarded because being a true artist is no longer valued.

Btw I find the OP's signature incredibly ignorant. Music has been something meaningful for ages. And the pieces he posted are ...well. To each his own.

well what you were saying is that everyone can make music now. i know what the op was talking about, but you said that everyone can make music now because its so easy to download a cracked version of fl, but that doesnt necessarily mean they'll make good music. however, i do agree with what your saying. the music industry just wants a model to make money off of. nicki minaj has the iq of a muffin, the talent of a brick, yet shes a perfect role model for todays "swaggalicious" generation, so they sign her because she'll make the label money. they dont care how bad she is at singing, the producer who does the recording, mixing, mastering, and all of the other stuff can fix that.

Itīs because these "artists" donīt sell music. They sell fashion articles, lifestyles, opinions and other things that are more profitable than real artist.

exactly. i find it quite funny that kanye west said to deadmau5's new line of clothing that "it wasnt the best fashionably, and that he wont make any money off of it" or something like that. deadmau5 honestly could care less, he didnt make the clothing line to sell out and make millions of dollars, he made it because he was a fan of the clothing line and thought it would be cool to combine their logo with his. he was selling out a little, but the fact that kanye west said that it was unnapealing just goes to show that pop artists are all about fashion and whatnot. i forget what deadmau5 said back to him, but he honestly thought it was hilarious that artists care more about the sales of clothing than the actual music.

Re: A simple walk through the local mall tells the word "musician" = "mythical beast"

Mainstream artists usually don't actually sell much of anything these days.

They're just an image that corporation use to sell things.

Nicki Minaj doesn't sell things, her bosses sell things using her image.
