the cd pirates now have gone shopping in taiwan and hong kong. either that, or they are now shopping in yes asia, the largest online chinese cd web store in the world.

they now bring into malaysia many titles well in advance of the malaysian market. (at least 1-2 months ahead). this is something unheard of in the past. and some titles so uncommercial that you wonder why they bother.

it is obvious - the pirates are looking at the bigger global picture now - they want to rule all and sundry.

scary sh*t.

it is a sad day for music. the music industry and record shops in malaysia are promised of an expedited death.

oh, btw, just in case you ask - 2v1g has been pirated. what an irony in all sense of the word.

那么做音乐的人都会慢慢的把正业转为副业,然后再找一份跟音乐无关的工作吧。我想音乐若不能再被灌溉那么最终枯萎将面临绝种,那未来是不是会演变成你要听我的音乐就请我到你家去表演吧(要收钱的),又或者音乐会成为创作圈子彼此分享的一种乐趣,与局外人无关。

hi anonymous,

music is always needed by everyone. it is just that the model of selling music is evolving and we are in twilight zone now with download not really taking off (in this part of the world) and cd sales dwindling.

already many musicians have changed their focus to do other art forms like jingles, commercials, musicals etc etc.

ultimately, music won't die. it will just evolve into another form.
