When I was a little tot, music is my savior. Always have and always will. I was born with a really strict and orthodox mom. So. a lot of my time was spent in my room trying to deceive my mom that I was studying (Sorry, Mom. Haha). Instead of studying, I went to my dad's car and listened to the whole album of Iklim; my own version of Gun N Roses. I listened to it over and over again. Before I know it, my dad got pissed knowing his cassette tape was damaged. And he sure knew who he's going to blame. Hehe. What? Why are you guys looking at me?

Starting from that moment, I was very fond of music. I watched and I went through a lot of transitions in music. From walkman to discman. Discman to iPod. Cassette tape to CD. MP3 128kbps to flac. The transitions are so fast that makes you looks like a complete idiot if you asking someone what .flac is. And these rapid transitions give people so many options that they might feel too overwhelmed over the availability of so many choices. In future, things will remains the same because people likes wowing at new things.

People love MP3 and Internet for a lot of reasons. Basically, people love telling and showing off their music interest to other people. With a wide range of network in the Internet, we can share our MP3s to other people around the world. Well, of course it leads to inevitable illegal downloading and eventually we can listen to a bunch of artists; moaning and pleading to music fans to stop illegal downloading. Ironically; these illegal downloading activities have risen up their popularity across the globe in a blink of eye!

So, instead of moaning about the inevitable illegal downloading, CD's piracy and stuff, these musicians need to improve their showmanship in live performances and eventually they will have a large fan base that will committed to buying their original records! So, I expect illegal downloading and CD piracy activities won't disappear completely as long as the Internet is exists. Maybe by enforcing a strict law against CD piracy,these activities could be diminished.


CD Piracy is rampant but illegal downloading is on the rise.


For those who are into international musicians, they are likely unable to follow their favorite band/artist on tour. Time constraints, money depletion are to be blamed. But, maybe in future these artists should consider broadcasting their live shows up on the Internet (their official website) for unlucky fans viewing with a considerable streaming fee. That way, I would never have to break the bank to catch up with The Strokes concert in Tokyo. I could just lying in my bed with my boxer on and dancing with myself all night long.

It would be a major plus if the artists follows the trend of future themselves. For example like tweeting. A lot of artists have started tweeting about their daily life thus making them a much more cooler than artists who didn't. The fans will feel like they were much more closer with their idols. Don't be surprised if your favorite artist started to make it public at Facebook or Myspace just like Tila Tequila does.


No wonder she makes over 31.5 million views on her Myspace page.
