Cry Me a River, and work your Ars to get over it, then Live like the rest of us.
Its funny when people in Fantasy land complain about something they think the real world will care about, and get it wrong.
Digital media is like toilet paper, we use it, we flush it.
People will hate me for my opinion and probably pick it apart, but think about it. Why care when you can just see it on the web any time you like, and it doesn't even get dusty.
Hate you for it,,,........... not a chance. You're spot on with your assessment. I lament the day when "artists" like Bon Jovi ever even got a record contract. Back when I was buying vinyl, he would have been laughed over by the industry. Fortunately for them, I wasn't an A&R man. Bon Jovi made huge bucks for the record company that contracted him...... which is exactly what was wrong with the recording industry .
Truth be told, back in the day, I bought albums ( that's what they used to be called back then), and found maybe two songs that I liked. But , since I had made the investment , I listened repeatedly to the whole thing. Often times, it was one of those lesser songs that became one of my favorites, not the one with "the hook".
I kind of miss those days.
