Media Battle: Let’s get along people?! Rant

This is something I had to really get this out of my chest,  I find this to be laughable argument comes from someone I know that’s has been sitting here with me for sometime now with the whole mainstream vs. indie medium of both side is just a dumb down argument which I can’t stand!  The battle doesn’t do good but a continue mess.
When I think of any media I can think of three that comes to my head like Video Games, Filming and Music.  How does do come together? Well none accept that each medium thing is very different on its own way,  For one the Mainstream works with you in its own partnership and doing innovating things in the past they’ll hire anyone that’s talent enough to bring you up higher with the big boys.  For example I think about video game companies like Sony, they have done interesting concepts and refreshing new games but its what I look about companies like that they bring great things in the table, If it wasn’t for Nintendo and Sony! They won’t be like they were today.  What I can understand what’s the fuzz is indie community arguably consent on how the things presented on mainstream being the evil corporation sort of image (like as Microsoft) get attacked on,  Hell I don’t attack the independent side of things but god when it comes to them they have sort of mentality attacking one of the other telling the big you “don’t have any originality with the consent sequel they go over that is redundant?!”   Its hilarious to hear people say that they’re original for being indie, THAT’S hypocritical for those who say something like that if there game or music isn’t groundbreak or original to be revolutionary! that’s just a poor piss argument to state to anyone plus calling yourself indie can be a slap in the face within the community, but doing anything unique and new, than yes I can accept that.
I can tell you dam well feel about the college scene which most goes by there own norms and taste, I say is what you are is what you eat,  somehow I don’t see diversity in taste of interest!  No way! Hell I don’t give a flying fucking if continue that same route and bashing on corps, the music is a business model and same as filming and gaming and the way making it works with music is you have to market yourself out there and make a image for your group/band what the sound is going to be the band its possible you’ll get a contact deal with a record company for a label, For each record you do, they will want a good investment back from the artist that’s how it works!  SIMPLE!  What I fine with the problem about the does artist is they don’t push hard enough to be successful and in this world if that’s what your goal is to become a success artist then you have to work hard what you do!  But in your case if you want to work in a hotdog stand, starbuck or an Italian restaurant for the rest of your life,  then by all means its sad see talent being wasted,  Of course not everyone can’t really be talented like stars that you see.  I’m sure enough that’s a dream fill of wonders for some.   
The bottom line is I love to see more diversity between the two,  I like both and even dough I don’t like a lot about of things that goes on nowadays, I look at this in both ways some of corps can be evil with mass of popularity they try to sell you something that you aren’t.  Indies I see to be the most intolerant immature hipster thing out to date which I’m so steamed about!
I remember reading in GameInformer July issue that cought my attention a while ago on why there’s such a fight between the two.  I agree I can’t stand it, I don’t know who else agrees on this subject.  I remember reading that there’s a game company call “thatgamecompany, yes I’m serious”  that’s being funded by Sony and If else I’ll wouldn’t mind to be my game company being fund by them instead of having to live off by ramon noodle like the rest. 

Queensryche, Redemption.

This became a surprise how the new track actually turn out starting to love Redemtion a lot!  I been a fan of Queensryche since American Solider album, but I happen to like the classic albums, The Queensryche EP, The Warning, Rage for Order, Operation: Mindcrime and Empires.  This is preview somehow I’m starting to like the new song….I’m sadly I don’t have sirus/XM, that’s going to be listening to the full song, Redemption on channel 38 and 39. well even dough I can’t listen to it but it’s like whatever I can still wait June comes in a few months.

Physical Vs Digital

Here we are in 2012, Today we got all this new advance technology that it is now going to start replacing paper. some people don’t like that everything is going digital and some of them would like to go digital because electronics saves the environment which I understand it does,  but the fact is that you got everything that’s going to be digital and nothing is going to change that, Physical copies are still going to be around for a couple of years to come but later I know that physicals copies like Books, DVD’s Music and other media that I haven’t listed  are soon going to be or are already in digital format or already on-Demand format (or streaming format on if that what you call it now and days), Things are changing rapidly and I know that because I use it all the time now since it’s something that I doing right now for my own convenience heck I’m listening to Dream Theater on Grooveshark that I can listen to it streaming on the website, but does that mean I’m pirating?  No! it simply means I listen to it without purchasing it But does that mean that I’m not supporting the artist? Of course not! I am supporting the artist!  What I like about streaming a song is that I like to listen to the whole album before purchasing it besides I don’t want to purchase an album that’s not good from them even dough the artist worked hard on making this piece of work they done.  Another way you can support your artist is go to their shows on where their going to be performing at in your city near you or a place they’re going to playing live.  Heck I’ve been to now about five rock concerts in the past, Last one I been to was last week on Friday I was seeing Styx live in Miami and before that I went to see Dream Theater last year in Atlanta and both of them are amazing to see live plus they make allot of money while touring around the world not just for Digital and Physical purchase.

some how this is what leaves physical formats a disadvantage most of the time you can’t preview a Music, Movies and Books. (Expect for video games I know demo games gives you plenty of time to give you the idea how the game is going to be played on the consoles).  

I know another disadvantage that doesn’t have on a physical copy for instinct a book! If you want to read something at night but don’t want to turn the lamp on  you’ll have to get a portable night light to read which is something that I have at home that I used allot when reading physical copy.  But with the tablet it always light up with any tablet that you use, Apple, Android, Amazon, B&N Nook or what you are using,  A tablet I can bring a good example is the Amazon Kindle,  it’s only purpose it does is e-books since it’s very popular in the  market now for readers that travel everywhere I find that it helps allot,  If you’re the kind that like fill 1,500 Thur 4,100 titles that’s up to you.  Barnes and Nobles is still going to be around for a long time the way I see it.

Like I said about Music Industry before its having a hard time right now,  but I can still music having a future if music can be everywhere, I can imagine music stores being a big demand for music down loaders and anyone that was out of there houses and hang out in the malls or to the park or what ever it is you want to go,  unfortunately allot of people see that as a dying industry, I remember a time when I was little…I think it was about 10 or 13 years ago, I remember going to a mall allot and remember seeing people coming in and out of stores buying CD’s allot and one of the stores I remember that sell music at the time was Sam’s Goody’s back when I was living in Florida, that was very big at the time in the 90s,  which I remember it was a big store back then, I remember another store call sun coast I remember it so well when it was in every mall it was cool that had allot of videos and DVD’s in store Self’s of course Media-Play had something like that was as well. 🙂  and last time I heard Fye’s bought them.  Today’s Media store aren’t as good as it was back then, due to download and privacy.  (So If you plan to a musician…well Good Luck on your success because it’s not easy as it was before).

Today, We see a change in the times,  You know it’s a different world on what we see today then back then.  It’s like history the Roman Empire rose when it was biggest empire and then fell it’s knees, that’s how I see what the industry is an all out war, The online world vs the Nationwide Media store.  Way the world is there’s a balance to everything, one wants to physical and the other wants digital and it’s hard to who’s going to overcome. other way I see is that people only want one thing and one thing alone, Truth is you can’t make people switch to digital, most aren’t going to switch over night that not going to happen like that.  When you  hear a new device…for instinct the new Ipad 3 or HD what ever you want to call it, Is a very expensive that I don’t see many that is going to pay for it in the first day of launch, not many people are going to for a tablet in the first days of launch,  then after launch then tech critics are going to see problems to the devices pointing that rear view sucks or maybe the frame rate is slow and whatsoever.  The Many of the consumers are apples fans that are willing to pay high dollar for the price.  it’s only low percent of the apple user that are going to purchasing a Ipad 3 no dough,  Not that I’m saying it’s wrong to have a device like Ipad 3, I think there a great tablet to have,  some how I rather wait till the price goes down or apple announces the next Ipad that has less problems, I do know very well when purchasing a electronic that has a e-book feature and want to get it but can’t tell if that suit you…well it’s about research one most of the time it has to be you that needs to know if your going to getting it to make life as easy as possible to rid of the clutter of having so many books in your self…I can understand why.  

What music I been listening to lately

I figure since it was something I wanted to do, I decided to write about music I was like why not.  The music I been listen is a lot of Progressive Music and Metal music,  Here’s the music I been listening to is Redemption which I love so much now, it’s the same vocalist from Fates Warning which I enjoyed listening to I have say but  If your into metal music then that’s what I’ll recommend to you, I know there’s Progressive Metal Bands, But I do like some of the news bands like Chickenfoot and Black Country Communion.   If there’s a band or an Artist that you’ll recommend to me I pretty much listen to anything I’ll hear.  Because I know I been listening to Allot of Anthrax for the most part amazing, plus I been listening to Worship Music like about so many times now.  One of my favorite tracks are Earth on Hell and The Devil that you I like the album allot because it’s been 8 years since they released a album.  But I’m glad they have Joey back on the band and hopefully I can’t wait till I see them live sometime this year…But who knows but I money is on them that’s for sure.
