I’m sitting at my dining room table thinking about the information on Copyright that we “read” this week. I often listen to music while I am doing my homework, which in this case is my “Lincoln Park” channel on Pandora Radio.
When was the last time I actually bought a new CD? When I went to see the Trans-Siberian Orchestra a few years ago. Before that, I get media for Christmas, usually a box set from one of my favorite bands.
My 17-year-old son could not tell me the last time he bought music. My 22-year-old daughter buys music all of the time.
My point is this, the world continues to get smaller with the use of technology and entertainment is part of this. I can go to almost any corner and purchase bootleg movies. Some of them are pretty good quality. Why would I pay $10.00 to $12.00 a ticket to see a movie once when I can own it for $5.00? Why purchase a CD when I can get free music from Pandora radio?
I like killing Zombies with my son on Call of Duty and I enjoy “Walking Dead” on A&E. I wanted to name my daughter Claudia and my son Lestat. I did not. (Any one know who they are?)
