the war on the internet, music & the generation gap

this is a great article, based on another article, which is based on another article. I didn’t read all 3… just this one. but it’s a pretty cool ‘discussion’ of how things are going these days with music. I don’t know what the answer is, and i’m not one to judge who is right and wrong, but I am very thankful of my path through the ups + downs of music.

Getting into music pre-internet was key, I guess. Appreciating record stores and the people that work at ‘em… getting mail order catalogs and analyzing the crap outta them… zines…. etc. They were all the pre-computer keys to discovering new music, and shit were they charming. I can’t hate on some teenager that has never bought a physical copy of anything, cuz they don’t have any idea of what it was like before.. and if they do, things are way easier now! 

so if you have a minute… check out this read, and read the articles it references if you’re so inclined. just a good checkup on the times. 

color me appreciative.

Check out Indie Ambassador’s interview with EIY founder Sarah Saturday!
Excerpt:

Sarah Saturday is an accomplished musician, web designer, and Warped Tour veteran, but most notably she’s the founder of the Earn It Yourself movement. As staunch believers in the DIY ethos, we’ve followed the evolution of EIY and were psyched to finally catch up with Sarah to talk about the project. Earn It Yourself, or EIY, is an ethical ideology used by Saturday in her work with alternative and DIY musicians throughout the country, to encourage these aspiring artists to develop communal roots and to “do the right thing” in regards to their motives and business practices. Since its inception in 2006, EIY has evolved from an online forum and resource to a full blown movement that includes workshops at Warped Tour and a number of local EIY chapters across the country.
Find the interview with Sarah below that covers her background, the EIY spirit, its connection with Warped Tour and where Earn It Yourself is headed in 2012.
