So You're a Musician - REALLY!

Dang... the last time I posted was last Wednesday..I am definitely slacking. For those of you that have been checking out the site you will notice a few new links I got one page for you to join the mailing list and another to purchase some BANGIN' BEATS .... make sure you do one of the two before you hit the sack tonight, it would be really appreciated.

First lemme post this cool article that I read from NPR entitled 'So You're a Musician' here is a little preview

'So You're A Musician? Sweet Gig!' By Sarah Scanlon -- "So, what do you do for a living?" While this has to be one of the world's most awkward and unimaginative icebreakers, it poses a particularly daunting task for professional musicians. You can see the wheels in our heads spinning as we summon the energy and diplomatic skill needed to explain our complex and unorthodox career to someone who is most likely unfamiliar with this tiny niche of the workforce. ... I think it's one of the most important issues professional musicians face today: educating the general public to the services musicians provide and overcoming misconceptions about the nature of who we are; what we do; and exactly how much effort goes into our craft/art.

Last night whilst watching my ROKU I came across Young Hollywood doing a better rendition of WE ARE THE WORLD then that BIEBER intro'd crew so I thought you guys should check that out as well

"Thank God I'm Black" By Stephen Dantes

If today I ask for God to make me a different race
I’d choose to be black all over again
I love all races just the same
But being me has much to gain;
Maybe slavery wasn’t in vain
Or maybe this time I had shelter from the rain

See yesterday I took the train
From New York to Quebec
To cross the border with my Godfather
And visit dear old Canada
And there were these Asians on board
All young, charismatic and fun

But upon the crossing to the great Maple state
I saw the excitement disappear as tears drew near
Three were taken away and sent back
To wherever, but definitely not Canada
And we felt like they had just robbed us all
As we saw our brothers and sister fall

See today I took the train,
To head back to Penn Station, New York
It was yet another wait station
And this time,
Yet again,
It was Asian
This time, two
They looked Chinese
Maybe Korean
Or Japanese
Shit I can’t even tell cause they all look the same to me.

Then tears of rain,
As he was lead with his female companion
In chains
But definitely not to America
And we all felt the shame
As yet another brother and sister were taken
To suffer much
The pain

Head over to my buddy Stephen Dantes' website to view more of his work.

Court rules in favor of Eminem

This is great news for anyone that sells their music online.

Court ruling could mean millions in online royalties for Eminem, other artists| Detroit Free Press

Eminem probably thought he'd be waking up this morning to focus entirely on his concert tonight at Comerica Park. Instead he got a bit of unexpected news from a federal appeals court in California: some major money could be headed his way. The decision, which one Eminem attorney calls an "earthquake" for the music industry, could transform the online song business and boost the fortunes of untold numbers of artists.

Now on the other hand Youtube just got hit hard
AP - A German court ruled Friday that Google Inc.'s subsidiary YouTube LLC must pay compensation after users uploaded several videos of performances by singer Sarah Brightman in violation of copyright laws.
