  • Popular Music 12 sad facts

    You gotta hold out to the end... it's where the saddest (and yet funniest) piece of this little article is.

    (I'd like to note that while these may be 'sad' facts, let's face it some music is more accessible to more people, ie: there are more housewives that will buy Celine Dion than teenagers rocking out to Nirvana. It's just a numbers game)
    I'd rather be hated for who I am, than loved for who I am not. ~ Kurt Cobain

        The whole music industry has imploded.

        One DOES have to consider the fact that some of these people have sold more than people in the past because of more global access, but because of the rampant illegal filesharing, there simply is NO money in recording music other than the teen pop and top 40.

        I know session musicians who used to have full schedules. Now nothing.
        it's sad, the industry has no money to use for the more artistic music, so they just stick to the crap.

          You can't draw conclusions that way. All the Adobe apps make hard numerical evidence available so you can execute and evaluate such things methodically and without guesswork. Select the image on the InDesign...

          Hi there! I've been attending OCAD for two years now after attending another college. I'm told it's a much different atmosphere than colleges because it's less focused on "application" and more...

          Adobe InDesign and a JPG Size

          For some reason, the jpg that is 1920 px by 680 px does not fit into the Adobe InDesign 1920px by 680px document. When I place the jpg into INDesign it shows up much smaller. I know this...
