add has its benefits

My generation is so add that it is not enough to listen to one song at a time, we have to take multiple songs and mash them together. most times it sucks, but every once in a while...well, it's not like we are going to listen to it again or even be able to sit through the whole track without skipping ahead on the ipod. Anyway, here's some mash/bootleg sites that don't suck.

Hearing Double

Big thanks to beatmixed for turning me onto an amazing but loong article in the LA weekly on the current state of the music biz...A small new future:
"The record industry discovered some time ago that there aren’t that many people who actually like music. For a lot of people, music’s annoying, or at the very least they don’t need it. They discovered if they could sell music to a lot of those people, they could sell a lot more records.”
—T-Bone Burnet

"Here is the moral of our story: In a music industry filled with Cynics and True Believers, they say the good men die like dogs, and the bad men make out like bandits. “Good men” has always been code for the True Believers, people who actually like music. Well, it’s about time the Cynics start watching their ankles. Some of those dogs have grown teeth. And they might turn out to be pit bulls."
