When musicians made money
Mike Jagger, interviewed about The Stones musical past, and embracing technology:
I am quite relaxed about it. But, you know, it is a massive change and it does alter the fact that people don't make as much money out of records.
But I have a take on that - people only made money out of records for a very, very small time. When The Rolling Stones started out, we didn't make any money out of records because record companies wouldn't pay you! They didn't pay anyone!
Then, there was a small period from 1970 to 1997, where people did get paid, and they got paid very handsomely and everyone made money. But now that period has gone.

Woody Allen at Cannes
Andrew O'Hehir reports from Cannes on Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger," and is less than impressed, though he concludes with an interesting quote from Allen:
"I'm not the first person to observe that you have to have illusions in order to be happy. Freud said it, Nietzsche said it, Eugene O'Neill said it. If I met those people at a party, I'd think they were ridiculous and silly. But they'd be happier than I am." Cannes: Woody Allen's "You Will Meet a Tall Dark Stranger"
