Since you consider what I'm saying as "insane tangents" and already started to call me a fool and a hypocrite, well yeah there is absolutely no chance for you to understand what I'm saying. You'd rather think it's non-sense, not appropriate to the discussion and label my words as whatever you like to call them.

He is saying this in terms of things he would actually enjoy doing. As in, music is the only thing he enjoys doing that could also have a chance of generating income. There is nothing wrong with that.

Those are his words, bro.
You are showing a great example of the problem I am talking about. You are not comfortable with the unknown. You'd rather follow the safe path, the traditional way like all the others.
Get real. I'll discuss with people who can.
I dunno dude you sound a like a huge hipster with everything you are saying. You're not completely wrong but the music industry isn't all evil. There's alot of great mainstream music and there's alot of great people behind it, writing it. Music should always be a career option. I'm not going to write even better music if I don't have time to perform it or write it because I have a job that requires more time.
You also seem to think that a music career means you are a pop sensation. I don't know dude film scoring, sound design, studio artists, bed writers, mixing engineer, music teacher, jingle writer, arranger, composer, videogame scorer, copyist, etc. etc. are all fantastic fucking music jobs that require a study of some sort into music. If we suddenly told them all to go fuck off and make money some other way because music is only about an emotional connection then you can say good bye to all your favorite music.
If you try to say "I didn't mean that" then let me quote the one post I feel like reading that you wrote. "When music is about "career options", it's just about repeating the same mainstream bullshit thousands of other people have already made. Just like a robot, a machine, for a "job" that's not even yours."
Everything in that statement is just so ignant (ignorant). You best be gettin some learning shoes on .
AND I'LL LEAVE YOU WITH THIS GOOD SIR!
"You are showing a great example of the problem I am talking about. You are not comfortable with the unknown. You'd rather follow the safe path, the traditional way like all the others."
As for why I make music? I'd like it to be able to sustain my life off of it because it's the only thing that I can do for hours on end and love every (most) moments of it. Also I get to leave my mark on history.
god damn hipsters
