Time Article Incites Red Hot Blogosphere Reaction

by Mrs. Gunn

I’m not the most knowledgable person about the music industry. But when I see something interesting, I reblog it here – because it’s just too interesting to ignore. And so here is this week’s highlight:

Time Article from 1/24/12:

Want to Be a Rock Star? You’ll Need $100,000


The first reaction 1/26/12: http://gawker.com/5879664/no-one-tell-these-rich-kids-theyre-wasting-100000-trying-to-be-indie-rock-stars

Another reaction 1/26/12: http://www.avclub.com/articles/band-claims-it-costs-100000-to-make-it-in-indie-ro,68355/

One angry reaction from a dude: (warning: explicit) http://iblogwhatihear.com/468-two-lights-a-response

And then, the icing on the cake, Bob Lefsetz names them the Time Magazine Band: http://lefsetz.com/wordpress/index.php/archives/2012/01/28/time-magazine-band/

Perhaps they should add some synths and go into the pop genre if they want to get famous. I bet they would get some noteriety if they stuck to their roots in Portland.  Who ever said the music industry made money? Didn’t Lady Gaga just declare bankruptcy?
