This is truly Armageddon.
Finally I see the light, the reason of being of Facebook
How very sad to read Lilly Alien complaining about people pirating her music if such thing happens, which could be but come on, what are the chances the person that downloads one of her tracks would have pop to HMV and buy the album? yes, zero.
But even sadder is to hear Gary Barlow (helloooo) and Jame Blunt (helloooooooooo) agree... let's face it, this is the sad face of the music "industry", manufactured performers who really have nothing to say.
Let's not forget the real qualifications come when they perform live, and this is where the music industry is heading, they will earn their money via concerts, like it should be while CDs and P2P will just promote those concerts. There won't be hideaways and commercial use of their music will be major hit which actually will attract more bigger gigs.
And is fair to say this is how it was before the invention of the gramophone, so technology gave it to you, now technology takes it away from you.
You just should say "Thanks for the fish"
I do remember when I was young, very young in fact and you could watch on TV some proper movies, proper educative programs and none of the crap we have now although is fair to say BBC is the only one that really stands out for a little bit of top programs.
So... what the fuck has happened? has more competition make the product better? this is the argument mainly for hardcore capitalists and right wing thinkers but it is clear that is not true.
Even more, has flights got cheaper (yes) and better (no) every year by having more competition? clearly we are missing something and these is the fragmentation of a market is limited, also continuous growth is limited, and of course natural resources are limited.
Solution to all our problems, reduce population drastically... or may be not, but we won't be here to see the results of course.
Are we living on the Big Brother or not? i am sure we are.

It is way too cruel even for their standards, not only they have contracts in which they enforce massive restrictions to both winners and losers, not only they torture us day and night, they bring huge stars to sign along or even worst to lip sync, now they have all the weirdos together to make us realize how shit they are and how right was Mr. Cowell to fire them and insult them too.
