This is a bit tangential to my usual fare.
Total album sales in 2007 declined 15% — the third consecutive year in decline. The music industry cites piracy and the Internet for the declines. I'm surprised global terrorism didn't make the list, but I think that might be listed among the industry's assets.
However, just a wee thought, I haven't bought a music CD in years. Quite a long time. No, I'm not downloading them online and listening to them. There's just not really anything coming out that I want enough to spend the money on.
Dear Music Industry,
Please make some music that I'd actually enjoy listening to, and I'll actually spend money on it. If, on the other hand, I find out that your decline in sales is because you are restricting supply again then we shall have words, make no mistake. You have done this before in order to cry poor, and it wasn't right.
PS: I'm not kidding. Make something I'd enjoy listening to. It's been a long time.
