|That bullshit about Jekyll and mr.Hyde ... |
I don't think Mike said anything rude at all in the interview.
did i call him rude? i don't think so, it's your own interpretation, i meant he seemed to be another person when asked about that issue, i found him a bit scared and on the defensive when asked about his fans reaction for the copy protection. just said that imho he chose the easiest path answering like someone on warner would have done. it's the way i saw it and explained my reasons to say so.
|Someone even said he could HEAR the copy protection on TB2003... what kind of crap is that!?!?!? The record sounds crystal clear on my stereo. And I certainly can play it on the computer as well.|
it's very nice from u that u just care for the good sound in your equipment. as yours is ok, everything's ok... u are very lucky while a lot of other people have had serious problems with theirs. well, everywhere there's always someone who just care for the own navel, yes, that's nice, chap.
the fact is that the "silly" matter about copy protection is making that something sold to all of us like the definitive and perfect performing of tubular bells has become maybe the opposite to what we had expected after so many months reading how mike had played it with tonnes of love. tubular bells 2003 is performed with a lot of care and love, i do know that, but the copy protection, in most of the cases, just let one appreciate a quarter of a half of its potential. and that's a pity for us and also for mike, that's why i said he's the main victim and i think we have to speak against that because it's the only way to change things.
|I have always claimed that fans on this webbside pay too little attention to the music, and too much to stuff like album covers, copy protection, games, etc ... Really silly.|
if i were like u, i'd also say that's a big bulls... oh well, i'll try to not going to that level... i don't feel i have to defend why i'm here, not for his face, u can be sure. copy protection is something important for music as far as it doesn't let one fully enjoy the music. and that's the case with tb2003, don't u see that??? if we all are speaking and complaining here is because we love music and what we have had through this copy protected recording is music that's right, but not music as we have always had. do u find normal the fact that one, before playing a cd for which has paid a considerable amount of money, has to cross fingers and pray asking for a right playing or even, to find the player in the same conditions as it was before putting the cd in? i don't find this is fair. that's why i find all this matter like a big absurd... it's unbelievable that something like this is happening. they know this doesn't stop pirates. it just affects normal people who spend their money in music to enjoy it. pirates have a lot of tools to find out how to pirate music and as i said above, also affects to artists. mike himself has been a victim of this barefaced business, cause imo wea has ruined tubular bells 2003. so simple like this, even when it plays perfectly in your own equipment.
consumers have the right to speak, it's nothing personal against any artist. don't get so nervous, mike is still mike and his music is still his music, but i'm not going to accept everything they want to give me, i want to receive what i'm paying for. if u want to soak up all the bullshit (oops.. at last i fell to the rude level, sorry) the music "business" people want to give u, it's up to u. u are their man, people like u is what they need for growing.
relax and enjoy the afternoon.
when i buy a cd i don't want to make anything else than to put it in any of my players and enjoy the music. i've always bought his records and played them carefully, i've even bought some twice when they were too old. i don't mind spending money in music but i can't stand anyone wants to rip me off (and i'm not meaning mike himself in case any wonder). that's all.
i can understand mike wants to protect his work, that's fair, but now he may have realized that, at least the system used by warner was bad for his music as it is an obstacle for a lot of people to enjoy what he wanted us to enjoy. that's why i said, maybe as a lot of people have stated before here, he should look for another company that cares more for his work.
