to Admit You're A Lo$er"
By Kenny Love
Sometimes, given some of the element that calls itself a
"musician" that I meet in my daily trial and error of the
Music industry, I compare it to the element I also met when I was a
cop for a couple of years.
In fact, I am embarrassed to say that, on occasion, I met a nicer
element as a cop. Per the below response that came from what I
term a "disenfranchised" musician, in respect to
qualifying for our MuBiz.com distribution, I believe you will
readily see what I mean...
Oh, by the way...I have omitted this individual's name and contact
info for the following reasons:
1. I might (unfortunately) discover that 'His Royal Dumbness' is
just smart enough to (successfully) sue me should I reveal his
2. This guy's a real screamer...literally.
3. This is one of those rare instances, whereby, I do *NOT* desire
Without further ado, please follow the below mindless
THAT'S BULLSH*T! F*CK YOUR DISTRIBUTION! I MUST LET YOU
KNOW MAN, RIGHT NOW, I KNOW I CAN'T AFFORD TO GET ALL OF THE SONGS I
IN MIND ON RECORD!
I THOUGHT YOU COULD OF HELPED ME A LITTLE WITH THIS PRESENT
SITUATION I'M IN! A WHOLE ALBUM!
SH*T! I DON'T HAVE A RECORD CONTRACT WITH A RECORD LABEL!
NO ADVANCES, BUDGETS OR NOTHING LIKE THAT!
I MAKE, LIKE, A $100-$180 A WEEK! WITH THIS SINGLE ROOM
I'M LIVING IN, THERE IS NO WAY I CAN AFFORD TO GET MANY SONGS DONE
UNLESS I'M MYSELF A PRODUCER,COMPOSER,MIXER, ENG, ETC., AND HAVE MY
OWN STUDIO EQUIPMENT AND
SH*T LIKE THAT!
While the late great Country singer, Waylon Jennings was busy
espousing advice to mothers such as "Mommas, Don't Let Your
Babies Grow Up To Be
Cowboys," a highly successful musical seller, he might have
experienced equal, if not greater success with a follow-up titled,
"Daddies, Don't Let Your Younguns Grow Up To Be Musicians"
In fact, in support of foresight, he might even have created an
unlimited franchise with such subsequent follow-ups as:
1. "Uncle's, Don't Let Your Nephews Grow Up To Be
2. "Aunties, Don't Let Your Nieces Grow Up To Be
Knife-Wielding, Gun-Totin' Bra-Burnin' Paratroopers. <==(Huh?
While I often spend my writing days touting the bastardization of
the corporate sector of the Music industry, alternatively, along
comes the "Indie"
version of this insanity, albeit, significantly less financed.
This type of correspondence usually gets me to considering another
extended vacation in my wife's homeland of Puerto Rico.
