On Wednesday, Moby (yes, that Moby), visited my Culture Industries class, to share his opinion on the music industry. I’d paraphrase what he said, but I think it would be far more amusing to share the following quotes:
MTV only plays videos at night, so unless you run a crystal meth lab, you never see them.
Fame, wealth, and success only benefit those who aren’t very bright, or can use it to great purpose.
If there ever was an industry that deserved to die, it’s the record industry.
Most of the houses on MTV Cribs are rented for the show, which is why most of the people on the show look confused
The average artist has a six-month ‘shelf life’, after that they go back to working at Kinko’s.
Making the Band is like junk food and softcore porn. If I were somehow enlightened, I would never watch them, but I can’t stop.
