For Internet Week Europe, which took place in London this past week, a contest was held: Can you draw the Internet? The challenge was put to both so-called creative professionals and "a bunch of 10-year-olds." While many different tacks were taken, several representations of the Internet dealt exclusively with music. The one we like most is up top -- a grim representation of the fate of the CD in the post-Internet world. (And yep, that one was done by a pro.) A few more thought-provoking pictures after the jump.

Sure, the Internet is like a record. Except it never stops, doesn't scratch, never wears out, never needs to be turned over, and can't be sold when you're short rent money. Also, most of it doesn't sound as good as Sgt. Pepper's.

Aside from the pinkness of the background and the whiteness of the dude -- the Internet is a big place, Euros! -- we think the sentiment here rings true. We certainly aren't giving it up.

Check out more visual representations of the intertubes here.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
