As I strolled ignorantly to my theater class this afternoon, completely forgetting that it had been canceled, I decided to pick up a copy of PSU’s newspaper, The Daily Collegian. And I am SO glad I did, because I came across 2 very refreshing articles:
To be honest, usually most of the articles that come out of our newspaper aren’t the highest caliber. But the authors of these articles really surprised me with their knowledge of the music industry! It was definitely an eye-opening experience for me because until today I had yet to meet anyone at PSU with as much interest in the music industry as me. If you get me rambling about the music industry up here in Happy Valley, I usually get incessant nodding or eyes rolling from listeners -- frankly, it seems like they would rather do a kegstand. Not that there’s anything wrong with kegstands… Oh, college.
Anyway, I was glad to see that college students are thinking about the music industry & realizing that we are in the midst of some huge changes.
Feel free to comment about these articles I'd love to see what you guys think about them!
