Those who “dedicate their lives” to music

LukeCage (Mothership Collective) asks:

A message to ponder and reflect upon…no really….

Luke Cage is an Artist and Sound Designer and Producer and Musician who posted this on his FaceBook wall and I share it here.

Hey – so I was just thinking , those who “dedicate their lives” to music or to a specific cause , are some truly special individuals. Consider that when most people get their pay checks or money they but a new car / pay bills / and or take a vacation or some other activity in order to enjoy and make their money kinda work for themselves right? But people who dedicate their lives to music don’t exactly do that- They put all their money into something that is given to the general public for their entertainment . So when most people are planning their next trip to Cancun or wherever, the dedicated musician is planning on how to make what they do better so that people will enjoy their music more or have a better experience .

That’s some dope shit but if you think about that even further ; that in this day making it in the music industry is laughable … Because a person would have to be a child or a robot to fit the bill that the industry has established, as well as there is no real money in entertainment at all anymore at every level ( independent or Commercial) no real cash for shows , whole albums given away for free , uploads to whatever website that they pay to be on , all so that people will hopefully like what they do enough to have it played for more people and heard by even more . Quite the position to put oneself in. I see it as noble, some see it as stupid . But the facts remain that a society without music will not be a society for very long nor will it grow and expand. So music is essential to our lives here on earth like food really .

I don’t think people consider that when deciding on whether or not to buy their friends Cassette or CD for 10 bucks or to go to a free show or when they comment on a song uploaded or anything. It has become a trend in My world for those that do not posses the ability or are poor at making music to heavily criticize people’s endeavors… I just ask ; When was the last time you sank all of your money / time / spiritual energy on something for others to enjoy? … And would you ever do such a thing ?

Follow his music and ongoing adventures!
