the future of music starts here.
http://www.mperia.com/

It's true!
Granted it might not be Mperia who hits it big with this concept, but this is the concept that will be the future of music. artists selling themselves. We saw the beginnings of it with mp3.com, where small artists could get their names out for free and had an online presence. P2P rocked the music world because hey, people wanted music on their computers because they were on their computers all the time these days. It's slowly supplanting the television as the media hub of the home. It's not happening overnight, but it is definitely happening. That it was free on P2P was just a fringe benefit. Look at the success of iTunes, and how the media is going ga-ga about the "revolution of the century."
If you don't think that the global interconnected network is going to replace the record labels, you're not thinking hard enough, or far enough ahead.

so i was driving to san diego and there was a small green and white sign on the side of the road that said, "welcome to ryland." and i thought of you. you don't know me. you have not added me to your list of friends, as i have you...but i feel like we know each other because i read your thoughts and am interested. and when i am alone in the car thinking about how my trip could change my whole life, and what it means to my relationship with my bf and my roommates, it is you that interrupts these thoughts...and you don't even know me. just thought you should know you affect my life...even in small ways.

you're so right -- I can't wait for that time when all the legalities have been worked out so that people can actually just go ahead and LISTEN TO MUSIC again the way they're meant to...

and it occured to me this last CD-go-round that just having some song clips online would be easier, since I could just direct potential band-mates to my web site... hmmmmmmmmmmm needs to upgrade 'puter, perhaps
the future of music starts here. http://www.mperia.com/ It's true!… - another LJ. or: how i learned to stop worrying and love this life-thingy
