Same. I don't intend on having kids or getting married so I'd like to make just enough to buy a small 1 bedroom house in the city of my choice. Or rent a cheap studio apartment. I could just make music, read, watch films, and just chill.

My mom doesn't seem to understand that, she thinks I want to be some kind of rockstar and make millions or some stupid shit. I just want to have a small intimate fanbase and do cool small tours.

>>48716544
I think soundcloud will be the new myspace. In the mid-2010's prominent artists from there will be getting signed like crazy.

>>48716544
Hopefully, it's getting harder to keep believing but i've come to terms with being alright with a small following. It's pretty attainable.

>>48716584
This.
A lot of people claim that this is the worst time for music because there's not a lot of money to be made anymore. But I think that's the exact reason why music is as it's best right now. Without the promise of fame and wealth a good portion of musicians are making some really solid and honest stuff because all they care about is making music and almost anyone who wants to make music can thanks to the technology of today. It's kind of like the punk or folk attitude but it's applied to all genres and styles now.

I'm really optimistic about where music is going.

You guys will never make enough to get buy.

I see the lead singer of Urge Overkill almost everyday. That dude cleans bathrooms and washes windows at his friends bars in Chicago now for cash.

I know they aren't a huge band, but the had very moderate success...the kind you faggots will never get, and they are kept alive by the kindness of their bar-owning friends who give them a couple bucks to clean the fucking bathroom

I'm not trying to discourage anyone. I want the same thing you guys do. I have dreams too and I would love to live simply pursuing them.

i saw carlos santana among many other artists as a child because my mom worked at my city's largest music venue as some kind of manager.

his performance was the only one that really stuck with me as a child. i had heard his name before the show but i never heard his music, so the day before i brushed up on his most famous songs. I got so excited when he started playing black magic woman. I'll never forget the lights and the couple infront of me making out real hardcore. one of my first trippy experiences in life.

im high as fuck and have no clue why i typed that all out. i guess the point is that i fucking love carlos santana
>>
>>48728080
I quit everything but weed. I used to be an alcoholic (physically addicted, had withdrawals, had to drink when I woke up to stop shaking, had to drink to fall asleep and stop sweating) and lost my health insurance, so no more anti-depressants or anxiety medication. I pretty much self-medicate with pot, even though it hinders me when it comes to a piss test. I haven't done real drugs in a few years. If I do quit weed I might just join the military or something, but I don't wanna be around a bunch of bros and Chads.

Pretty sure if you want to make money off of music you're gonna have to tour constantly. If you're not hugely popular you're not gonna make a lot off of record sales.
I remember reading about Modest Mouse's early days and they were just constantly touring in a shitty van for their first couple albums a lot of the time playing super small shows but they gradually got bigger.

I decided a couple years ago that indie-electronica-psych-hop is the wave of the future, and I'm gonna surf it.

My rich grandma left me a ton of money, so I'm getting a BA in audio production.

I see the drummer from Venom on a daily basis. Metallica fucking opened for his band and now I see him doing his shopping in the cheap shops around my town
