This is Sacre Coeur from my hotel window.
I am here in Paris to participate in the "Paris Accords." Kind of a heady way to say, "people let's talk about the future of copyright." The really hopeful part is that so many people have come together here to be a part of the dialogue. There are filmmakers, internet peeps, publishers, gizmo geeks... lots of lawyers, and a few songwriters. And the conversation is heated, animated, but at least so far everyone seems to be listening. (The REAL meaty part starts today.)
For my part, I'm trying to represent how much harder it is to make a living now that music is for all intents and purposes, free. When people moan about the price of a CD I just want to jump off a bridge. I am here to put a face on the 'middle class' musician. God help us all!
How do they get the trees so perfect?
Why a windmill?
Sacre Coeur last night.
