love it!.. in the space of a generation we've gone from a vibrant and freakish counterculture movement dancing in feilds and warehouses to ..."EDM consumers"
I genuinely feel a bit sad those getting in to the game now have completely missed the real excitement of those days. Little do they know they will spend 90% of their time networking on twitface etc and 10% on making music.
Well dude it looks like you already know all the answers...
In a nutshell you seem to be saying:
* EDM is easy, and people only ever get success through fluke
* There's no point in working hard at it
* The only reason to do it is to get rich and famous
etc etc etc.
I believe you're mostly wrong about all that. But my preaching won't change your mind.
The only thing I don't understand then is why you'd bother starting a thread, or why you'd even bother doing music. There are plenty of other occupations, most of which will get you richer faster. Best to leave it for the people who enjoy working hard.
