Emne: Re : [avant-progressive] Digest Number 1990
I've been a member for a month or so and my ears have never been happier.
??? I guess it has to be taken at level X of metaphoric language because if
such recordings beat in your ears the pleasure of professional well crafted
sound engineering (mobile studios or whatsoever) and unless they should be
so extremely unique for some reason ..... then I've nothing to add.
I found amazing recordings ..... Magma (the Tritonales 2004 show),
Well this is the best example you could choose. But let me know what the
people supposed to release this concert DO think of this brilliant and
amazing idea. I guess they're so happy and already clap in their hands when
they see such a huge internet brotherhood; it makes it definitely easier for
them to release it, right? So .... sensible souls .... please close your
eyes or go away because I'm gonna be very rude within a few seconds. You may
shoot at me as much as you want!
The problem with many of you guys (no specific names but the ones concerned
will without no doubt recognize themselves)is that you don't give a shit of
anything BUT what you want to GET! If your action hurts some or makes it
extremely difficult for other to make a living of the artistic product
related to your greed, many won't care a second because they GOT it, they
now OWN the thing, they'll very affably behave and pretend being a very
friendly person by *offering* someone else a copy of THE thing, woow big
service there, so fucking nice guys! some other will go for the double moral
behaviour, pretending they care but going for IT anyway; still some more
will at the opposite really have a fair approach or more reflected and
respectful attitude but I'm afraid they're a minority in the big pond.
I do agree that trading music with friends is NOT a bad thing, it surely
even enrich everyone's musical culture but:
+ the download mentality is growing out of proportions and getting more and
more organized; we're moving more and more from the friend to friend into a
huge system controlled by some hidden interests. It's NOT that free. Nothing
is THAT free! Give just your mail address and be sure you will be part of
someone's marketing policy or profiling. New structures will earn money from
it while the ones supposed to get some will never get a dime while smiles
and nice words will not be missing .... The reign of hypocrisy!
+ no one really controls, knows of *in the absolute* or care about possible
conflictual situations due to planned release projects being bombed out by
free downloads. Some production may take monthes or years before getting
released but many concerts ARE already in the street a few days after; it
was so with bootlegging and it's exactly the same now, only the name has
changed; and the sound quality ... and the technology used .... and the
speed of propagation .... so don't say this has been thought out! It's a
cheap copy dressed in false morality.
+ I'm still persuaded that there is an inflated show off egotrip related to
the attitude of many downloaders; hey! Do YOU have the latest .... ? *I*
have IT! Do you want to see ALL my (put the name of your favourite artist
here) collection? Let me show you something very rare .... *I* have it, the
musicians don't! I can trade it to you (he he he I'm getting something out
of what is not mine).
+ I bet that in the long run, many will suffer from this anarchy +
superindividualistic state of things; and who knows what will be left
someday for the boulimic downloaders? Maybe they'll have to get back to
musical boiled potatoes. Or they'll get strangled by the amount of stuff
they downloaded and never listened to! Or they'll get sick of receiving so
many spam mails but how's the heck did they get my address?
+ whatever I or many other say in that matter, the NEED of getting IT will
still be far stronger than anything else. It's a sickness alike ludomaniacs.
+ the internet download mentality perfectly reflects the evolution of our
entire societies where mostly everywhere in this world, the rulers are:
money, greed, power, everyday increasing of super individualism (*I* first
and maybe others after), fanatism.
We're living in such a wonderful world!
