The Death of Oink, The Birth of Dissent

When Pigs Fly: The Death of Oink, the Birth of Dissent, and a Brief History of Record Industry Suicide.

Thanks to Pastepunk for the heads up on this great article from artist/designer Robert Sheridan’s Demonbaby blog. Wow, what a passionate and incisive read this is. It is a bit long-winded but well put and thought out. I always wanted to do a similar post but it usually turned into a big mess of me contradicting myself over and over and never seemingly making any coherent point. But, this encompasses about every feeling I have ever had on the subjects of the record industry and downloading. And I simply love this line:

For the major labels, it’s over. It’s fucking over. You’re going to burn to the fucking ground, and we’re all going to dance around the fire. And it’s your own fault.

Amen brother!
