Hello. For those who aren't familiar with Bob Lefsetz, he's a music industry insider who has written a blog for many years. I sometimes want to choke him, but sometimes he hits the nail on the head like none other. Anyway, he wrote this
, which led to a lot of people in the industry writing him with replies. Sometimes, he posts a bunch of these replies to his e-mail list but not to the web site. Lo and behold, somebody you all might know replied to that blog entry. I've copied and pasted the reply below.try being on a bus on a european tour with a teeny fucking suitcase when a fan brings you a 5 foot painting covered in glass in a frame and INSISTS you fucking take it with you.
i ask them to mail it. they say
no! I MADE THIS FOR YOU! (insert european accent of choice)
and i'm like I'M IN A TOUR BUS AND DONT HAVE ROOM FOR IT
and they're like
AAAHHHH BUT YOU MUST TAKE IT PLEEEASSSEEE
and so i do and wind up getting very creative with where the art winds up being housed.
this has happened multiple times.
you should have an automatic bad mp3 spam filter that automatically resends the sender a 10mb song from "lulu"
Just wanted to log in and post that.
If anybody out there actually is working on a 20'x20' mural for Amanda, I'm sure she appreciates it. I'm sure she'd appreciate it even more if you have it shipped, seeing as how all that stuff has to be shipped back on the flight home (expensive as fuck) or thrown away (sad, but hey, I doubt rubber band stacks come with any of the artwork).
