AKA, if you want to work in the music industry and don't act like you are right here thinking you know everything, write me. I come to this site all the time, just like everybody else. Why? Because I like music. That's why i work in the music industry. If you're happy sitting on your computer and acting as armchair A&R, feel free to continue to post things like this. I love reading these kinds of comments too. Thank you to all of you who have already written me. I'll get back to each and every one of you.
Haha. I was just kidding. It's okay.
The funny part is that I plan on getting an internship next summer with a record label or a similar organization. I was making a commentary on the steady fall and decline of major labels, not the uselessness of internships. I, of course, don't think that they are useless, since I am
studying Music Industry. I know that in order to prove yourself or show that you have enough integrity and desire to work in the biz, you have to go through either an unpaid internship or a low-pay mailroom or similar job in an expensive city. It's almost a rite-of-passage these days. However, it is
a cheap source of labor for any company. That's a fact. While a company can lay off people, they can pick up interns to grab some of the slack. I'm not actually saying that WB is doing that; I'm saying that it happens in other companies and it could easily happen in this very industry.
It was just a joke. I'm glad you love reading these kinds of comments. Sorry I was unclear.
