Thin White Duke vs. DJ Ninja There's a fairly lame interview with David Bowie and Moby, who I presume are touring together. The most interesting part is how convinced they are that the recording industry is going down and how the internet will essentially eliminate the idea of authorship in music. In particular, Bowie mentions "mash ups" as an area where traditionally copyrighted music cannot succeed but audiences are clamoring for it anyway. I mentioned mash ups once before and thought they might have this effect. I'm a big fan of DJs (very po mo) and while technology can't make everyone a musician, it can make everyone a DJ.
