which is what exactly? make music on a low budget PC in your bedroom, deliver flowers, pay tunecore $50 per year to put your album on itunes and maybe make $500 a year if you are lucky (not even enough to cover the PC/Recording Gear Costs) let alone any labor cost. great for hobbyists, sucks for anyone trying to have a real career.
I guess you're living in a different (older) world. Using 1999 as a reference does not support your claim.

My world of independent artists has only gotten better. But those numbers and graphs are hard to come by. Guess we'll know where to deliver flowers to.
