take another step back

I’ve been battling away with the procrastination and getting a bit of study done of late. It’s related to music and occasionally there’s tracks I want to listen to for reference that I don’t have on any computer here and so I go take a look at youtube. It’s pretty amazing that when you type in artist name – album name – “full album” almost always it’ll show up and you can stream-listen the whole thing. Most middle class people have an internet connection that is capable of that these day. And it strike me that this is probably one main new way that kids are discovering new (old) music now. It’s quicker than *illegal downloading* and actually it strikes me as odd that the corporate music nazis don’t consider it illegal. Posting 10 seconds of a Simpsons episode will earn you a take-down but as long as it only has a still-image attached you can upload pretty much any album you want and it’ll stay there. Last night I was listening to <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=rolling+stones+full+album&oq=rolling+stones+full+album&gs_l=youtube.3..35i39j0l9.394395.399490.0.400073.…1ac.1.11.youtube.gSpzf3zIzV8″>The Rolling Stones</a> <a href=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KCpkqZKuw6I”>December’s Children</a>. I really like that song Blue Turns To Grey.
