Report: Facebook plans on going music digital but it maybe different than myspace music…

With myspace music launching not too long ago, the other popular networking site Facebook is planning a similar thing but it will be different. The announcement was made by the founder of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg himself. They plan to team up with other song streaming music websites such as imeem.com, rhapsody, ilike, and Lala.

Although this plan is not “definite”, they could also turn down the plan if this doesn’t work out.

This sounds much better than myspace music, I hope it happens.

Report: Tommy Boy Records indie label joins the myspace hating bandwagon…

Merlin is not the only one hating the new myspace music, you can add Tommy Boy Records to the list. Tommy Boy Records is an independent label, not major, that has mostly hip hop and rap artists to it’s roster. The labels owner and founder, Tom Silverman, also said it’s going to fail and will head to “exodus”.

This is great! LOL! RIP MYSPACE!

Thought: Why myspace music is going to fail big time…

Those 4 major labels teaming up with myspace to make this happen are insane to go for it. Why is making music free in myspace a bad idea? It is going to hurt record label sales for albums on CD’s that you buy in the stores. People are no longer going to buy albums anymore because all the music will be free to listen to in myspace. It is not only going to make people stop buying songs from Itunes which is the whole point of this to compete with Itunes, but those fucking record labels didn’t think how this would hurt album sales.

While I do said before that I’m all for music should be a “free” market, I certainly do not want major labels doing that with myspace. This completely makes major labels fucking hypocrites when they all say they don’t want music giving out for free or albums leaked for free, yet they are willing to let myspace run free music.

Want to know why Metallica is dominating the Billboard charts? And charts all over the world? It’s because simply put no one is buying CD’s out there and Metallica has attracted people to buy “Death Magnetic” on CD just like the good old days. No one cares to buy CD’s anymore but Metallica has inspired people to go out to record stores again. It’s really simple to figure it all out.

What myspace is doing with music now is disgusting and pathetic. What major labels “should” really be doing with myspace music is go searching for unsigned and indie label artists, and signing them to the majors because there are talented songwriters and bands in myspace.

This just shows that myspace and the major labels could give a rats ass about unsigned and indie musicians. They think they are better than us. Myspace was oringally the heart of unsigned and indie bands/musicians but they ruined the fun for us by having major labels take over myspace just to compete with Itunes. Myspace is no longer a fun website for amateur, unsigned/indie label bands like it once was.

Expect unsigned and indie musicians to create a backlash at myspace to fight back at them to get what we want. Other than that, I really do think unsigned and indie musicians should forget myspace. We should just create a website similar to myspace a networking site for unsigned/indie musicians only with no major label associates. To make it better than myspace.

I could create a website like that myself, but I don’t have the computer skills to run it or the budget to keep it up all year round. I’m sure a site like that will happen for unsigned and indie labels when myspace pisses off enough musicians.

That Murdoch douchebag is such a cash cow ’cause money is all he cares about and that’s all he wants from myspace is more cash.

RANT: Seriously, the new “myspace music” blows!!!!

*sigh*

Can myspace music get any fucking worse? What the hell!!!!!!!!!!

The new player they just launched today is awful!!! I liked the old player better. And now myspace has got fucking advertisements popping up to direct you to listen to a random band when you want to listen to music in myspace? BULLSHIT!!!!

Unsigned bands and indie artists, here’s some words of advice and my 2cents. Cancel your account and leave that damn site like I did. There are other great sites on the internet to promote your music on. Myspace is going down the drain. Of course, unsigned and indie artists/bands won’t take that advice, they’ll be obsessed with myspace ’til the day they die. They all think myspace is such a great “promoting” and “marketing” site, when they fail to realize the real truth that it don’t do shit with your music. Time to get a reality check and get why myspace is making all these new changes. BLAH!!!!!!!

Report: Oh my, even more people are getting turned off of myspace and now facebook is taking over the world!!!!!!

Well, Rupert Murdoch, it looks like you failed myspace because “facebook” is beating myspace down!!!! The only reason facebook has gotten more popular in the mainstream now is because myspace is such a horrible site! Gee, I wonder why a lot more people are cancelling their myspace accounts and going to facebook instead.

Re-read my older blogs I’ve said about myspace in the past, they are all part of the reason. Also phishing, accounts getting hacked, lots of advertisements, people getting frustrated with shitty bands sending them e-mails about shows and their music, lots of crazy people who are delusional and drama queens in myspace who all they mostly talk about is getting wasted and partying, the amounts of celebrity pages and band sites taking over myspace when it is supposed to be a “friends” site, people are finding myspace too addictive so they go to facebook so they can get less addicted, having so many friends is too hectic for people, etc. Need I go on?

Facebook is planning to turn into a music site too similar to myspace but I will make a music account in facebook soon if I ever get around to figuring that stuff out. I think facebook is a much better site and easier to use than myspace.

Report: Rupert Murdoch pissed off at Facebook getting more popular than myspace…

Well folks, look like I am not alone on how myspace sucks so bad. America is finally starting to realize how bad the site truly is!!! People are starting to go to Facebook now! For the first time ever in history of the world wide web, Facebook’s popularity has risen over myspace!!!!! YES YES YES YES!!!!!!!!!

http://www.pcpro.co.uk/news/207876/murdoch-fumes-as-facebook-overtakes-myspace.html

Awwwwww, poor Murdoch! Coochie coochie coo. Cat got your tongue!  Get over it, pal!

It’s a fact that your site called myspace is pure crap and people are starting to finally realize it.

Expect to lose more people, Murdoch because of the launch of the new look which a lot of people are hating on. Not everyone has broadband internet and not everyone have good computers and it takes a long time for some people to log into myspace because of the front page advertisements with videos. This is probably the reason some people are moving to facebook.

Fuck myspace. Fuck it. Facebook is the way to go! I think I’m definitely making a facebook music account and I can run my own music page at facebook instead of fucking myspace! It looks better and much easier to use than myspace. The world is quickly losing interest in myspace and it’s nice to see Murdoch finally know that!

Report: The truth about the new myspace look…

Want to know the real truth behind the myspace look? Just the other day myspace just redesigned the whole site, and to be honest, I’m hating it. The more myspace continues to change the site around to make it look impressive the more I despise the site. So back to the question, why the new look?

Vince McMahon impersonation… “It’s all about, the Moooneeeeyyyyyy…”. Yep, that’s it. It’s all about the money. That one word. Myspace is about advertising so Rupert Murdoch and News Corp can make more cash.

More on it here:

http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/technology/2008/06/myspace-aims-fo.html

They don’t care about people. They don’t care about you. All they care about is pulling more people in because do you realize that every myspace page in that site is connected to advertisements so News Corp can get more dollars thrown in? It’s true, do your research on myspace and see for yourself. While myspace is a free networking site, how News Corp makes their money is the users using the site and they get paid from the advertisements. This is why Rupert Murdoch bought myspace 3 years ago, because he is a greedy cash cow.

While I do have a personal myspace account still, I keep it so I can keep in touch with my true friends and my brother who lives across the states, but I have news for ya people. I barely ever touch my personal myspace account, maybe I log in once everyday for a few minutes that’s about it, but I’m never in myspace for hours like I used to when I used to have my music account.

Like I said, all myspace cares about is marketing the site so News Corp can make more money from advertisemtns. In my opinion, “myspace” is not a cool site that you all think it is. It is horrible. That what’s myspace wants is for people to be addicted to the site, they add all of these cool new sites (like karoake, applications, etc.) in myspace and extra features to keep people in there. They want people’s lives to be devoted to “myspace”.

Myspace wants to take over the world and it officially did just that. Seems like all people think about is myspace. Myspace myspace myspace, it’s all about myspace. This is why I’m soon going to be turning my blog into my new official site hopefully this summer because I want nothing to do with myspace. Myspace continues to disgrace itself, Tom made the biggest mistake in his life by letting News Corp buy the site off of him.

The reason for the new site design is that myspace just realized that people are losing interest in the site. Don’t be addicted to myspace ’cause you’re doing nothing but supporting Rupert Murdoch and News Corp which you don’t realize you are doing. There are better things to do and more to life than just myspace.

Am I on my way there? You may ask?

Either way I don’t care. I’m not blogging and playing music for fame.

If I do happen to get my 15 minutes of national fame over this in the future, that’s fine. I won’t be so glorified over it, I’ll just continue to do what I do. Blogging my honest thoughts about entertainment news.
