Going Through It

This is an excerpt from Carlisle's post on Tumblr . It resonated with me so i posted it here:
"Between the ages of 18 through 24 were the hardest years of my life. I had no support from family nor friends about my career decision. In fact, everyone was telling me I was dumb and stupid for trying to do music and how music has no future but I thought all of them were hypocrites because they’re the same ones that were buying equipment to build studios and sound systems. I remember clearly one of my brothers’ friends giving me a lecture on how I should follow in their paths because computers are the way of the future. He was right but what all of these people did not understand because they’re from a society of sound systems and where everyone is a superstar with one song out is that music business outside of reggae doesn’t sell music. It sells culture that’s why they make money....."

A closer look at Google Music

"Music Beta, Google's new cloud music service, appeared in public for the first time Tuesday, after being introduced at the company's I/O Conference for developers. The site at, includes an introductory video about the service.

The service arrives just six weeks after Amazon's Cloud Drive and Cloud Player but appears to be a more functional, slicker tool for storing and playing music. Drag-and-drop functions appear to be fast and seamless. Creating playlists manually or through Instant Mix, a playlist creator tool, appear to be equally fast and easy."
