TOPIC: Bye Bye iPod
#221251
Bye Bye iPod 2 Weeks, 2 Days ago  
The second "end of music" invention (Napster being the first). But how clever - enabling any music, no matter how crappy, to get a few fans, with the result that mass appeal music got suffocated as filters disappeared.

An interesting thought - is all "great art" a collaboration? Not obviously so but vital? Example - Van Gogh. Did he really need Theo to advise him and to try to show the world his talent? Did Shakespeare have people telling him "that doesn't work - change it"? Did Picasso have trusted allies who said "Not red; blue would be better"?

I think there have always been clusters of artists driving one another on, innovating, taking things further. Van Gogh and Gaughan. Post modernist novelists. Impressionists. Ben Johnson & Shakespeare. Iron Maiden and Metallica! Is this in a sense "collaboration"?

Well put. However I can't stand Iron Maiden or Metallica (personal taste; I can't stand Megadeath as well) but I see where you are coming from.

There is nothing worse than one person doing it all themselves thinking they are fabulous and nobody dares to stop them.

I have noticed with paintings too. Sometimes you are inwardly begging the artist to put their brushes down, but they carry on sloshing more and more on until it is over-egged and ruined.


Wyot, was that you on the Eurovision thread? (if this is you? )

Honey - yes this is the genuine me and on the Eurovision spread (not sure what is going on there as I only ever post from the same device). I will always flag with a post if Barney uses my name. Which is obviously not a perfect system as he could do that as well! It is annoying, but then I guess it is meant to be....
