1 Our Precious Bodily Fluids  Fri, Jul 1, 2011 8:01:18am

I heard that yesterday. It's sickening.

I don't know what's worse: that so much money is spent on producing utter dreck, or that it takes an army of tin-eared, graph paper-brained accountants (all presumably wearing very hip clothing) to do produce it.

My thought was that the writers and songwriters, somehow get the shaft in all this. Anyone with talent as to wad thru some corporate BS to get to "go to camp".

I don't know, maybe it's an opportunity they welcome.

The part I wish the story had explored a little more was the part about how the "artist" doesn't get paid until the record label has recouped all its eleventy billion dollars worth of bullshit.

A decade ago, Courtney Love (of all people) was apparently lucid enough for long enough to explain brilliantly how the major record labels screw the living hell out of the artists. It's worth reading, especially if you don't care to chase down 20+ years worth of Frank Zappa interviews wherein he said the same thing, just not all at once.

"The music business is a cruel and shallow money trench, a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free, and good men die like dogs. There's also a negative side."
Hunter S Thompson said something like that. He said a lot of things that at first blush sounded rash. With time it rings truer. Indies tour to get a base and talent has nothing to do with what you hear on pop and rap play lists.

From your link: Who'd a thunk it?

Orrin Hatch, songwriter and Republican senator from Utah, seems to be the only person in Washington with a progressive view of copyright law. One lobbyist says that there's no one in the House with a similar view and that "this would have never happened if Sonny Bono was still alive."
