On "The Industry"...

Someone said to me recently, whilst mansplaining and making the bitter mistake of assuming that I was some naive neophyte, that I "didn't understand The Industry" I'm "trying to break into". Said it to me because I'd stated that a song that's out right now is rather lazy songwriting.๐Ÿ˜น

Really, dude?

Here's the thang, though, Nancy.
๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพI'm. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพNot. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพTrying. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพTo. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพBreak. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพInto. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพThe. ๐Ÿ‘๐ŸพIndustry.

NTM I've probably ate, slept, and shat more understanding about music facts, knowledge, and trivia than that person could ever fathom. That person doesn't realise that the business has changed, or they wouldn't be so reliant on the machinations of "The Industry"-- or as Carlos Castillo would say, "the in-DUH-stry".

Eff The Industry.

Indies have proven time and time and time again that they don't need them. They can make a living on their own, and fame is just a bonus.

I'm about making a living, and doing what I love. I'm doing all the administration for my family's label with very little, so they need to go to the State Farm Arena or the Superdome, walk in, and have AAAAAAALLLLLL the seats. Any seats they want. And don't get comfy, because they will get a rather rude awakening.

It Me...


So, long time no hear from...

I apologise. So much stuff in my personal life has been going on. You wouldn't believe it.

Anyway, I'm gonna --again-- try to keep up with this freaking blog.

For the next few posts I'm gonna repost some of my Facebook statuses that probably shooouuuld have been blog posts, LOL. I tend to get into these stages of thought where I'll just say something that was lingering there. They might make brief blog posts, though.

Get me and you back in each other's spaces...if you want.

I did miss you.
Come closer.
