Just A Thought....



After letting the state of this industry settle approaching the 3rd month of the year (along with last night's Grammy's) I'm having a moment where I feel the need to say what's needed to be said for a minute now...

So I've been gone from this site about 2 months now, returning every now and again to say hello or what not, But the reality of why I haven't been posting is because...well there's really nothing to talk about. This music industry has been at a nice size halt since around the end of November and I pose this question: Why the wait? From the outside looking in, it seems to me that "the powers that be" throughout this industry are waiting on some sort of "tag" to start the process of giving us what is suppose to be an endless supply of music, like we're not approaching the 3rd month of the year...to be even more basic, this music industry right now is the longest game of chess I've ever been in in my life..Make a move! Another way to look at it, A good friend of mine asked me "What if the movie industry decided to not make movies for 3 months?" or your favorite store decided they were going to take 3 months off from selling you clothing, food ect.. (crazy right?) that's us folks! Demand is what we need to find out how to get again. I for one think its puzzling that an industry that's rumored to be running short on money, has these big label Presidents that sit around and wait for another label to make a move, basically letting them know "its OK we can go make money now"- well how about I become that person...Folks we're going into the 3rd month of the year, music execs, its OK to give us what your paid to give...MUSIC!

on to the Grammy's- a night that's suppose to be the biggest night in music turns into one of the biggest disappointment's of the year..Why?

Analogy- To go to a dance during the school year dressed down to impress..OK but going to your Senior prom in the same attire?

We in this music industry DEMAND so much "respect" but as the saying goes you get what you give. How can we fly anywhere in this musical bubble, if we don't respect what's ours in the form of Tom Ford?

Performers at this year's Grammy's with the exception of a few were quite lazy...They put the camera on Beyonce' and I wanted to throw a leotard and heels at her, Praying that she would save this second rate musical assembly, with the infamous Bob Dylan damn near tripping over cellos and banjos, stage hands running wild all night, camera angles basically showing the audience when we're suppose to be watching Skylar Grey, Eminem and Dr. Dre or B.o.B Janelle Monae' and Bruno Mars go in on a wonderful performances....Music's biggest night Folks...

So I'll end this rant, and get off my soapbox, but I'll end with this : since you guys only have 10 months now to try and gain what we pray for at the end of the year and that's at least a percentage up from the previous...Sober up people because it looks like we have a long road ahead of us. (OH! SAU I love you guys ;)
