Music Will Be Free in Five Years

Music will be free in 5 years


When was the last time you bought a CD? Remember back in the day when you would go to the record store about twice a month and by your favorite CD? Or even earlier, you favorite cassette or vinyl record? Well those days are gone thanks to the internet. This might be a good thing or bad thing. The Music biz is imploding on itself. Fact: the number of CDs sold per artist (signed to one of the Big 5) averages at only 1200 albums a year!… Continue

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
