Evidence of the Impending Electro Recession


I read a rumor on a message board that startup musicians are selling their Macbooks and buying kiddie instruments.

Do you know any tips for surviving the electro-recession? With the weakening U.S. Dollar, America might not be able to import bangers from foreign markets. The rising price of music production software is putting holes in all of our pockets.

i will build an underground haven, and call it the guns'n'bombs shelter (remix), where i will hibernate until electro comes back. and since it will be dark under there and you won't be able to see anyway, you can wear shutter shades all the time at no cost, to keep hope alive.

i am concerned. i think everyone wearing muted colors this summer is the first sign that people are starting take a look at their drug use, insincerity and flighty scenester mentalities about art and culture and get a little scared. we all know that we can't do this forever, especially those of us who are 30 or pushing 30.
i personally love this life and wish it would last forever. i know many of us are wearing plaid now and throwing away our neon. but what's next? earth tones? baggy jeans? chain wallets? music made with real instruments? fear the grunge revival. fight for your right to partie without particularly caring about the people you partie with, or the problems of the world. i don't know where burma is, and for now i don't want to know.
when you're making plans with your alt friends to take your alt babies to the alt folk mixed gendered version of lilithfair in 2k15, you may wish you had held out a little longer before throwing out your neon. just wearing it a few more weeks might have added just a few more weeks to the survival of the electro partie economy. and when we're old worry about our kids' grades, we're gonna miss those few weeks.
there's plenty of time left to have fun and i don't mean to be alarmist about all this. i just think we should wait until a few alt celebrities die of drug overdoses before we start getting all down about our lifestyles. I think we can love one another deep down in an unspoken way without breaking out acoustic guitars and signing about it.

Everyone knows the UK is the window to the future. Everyone is listening to dubstep and minimal now, duh. Or pretending to like Bmore.
