More thoughts on music

Naturally the music scumbags are fighting like cornered rats now that they realize how much trouble they’re in. And the one big weapon they have is their back catalog. And it’s a powerful weapon.

Funny story on this subject. Yesterday we were in meetings with the goons at Universal and they were going on and on about their huge back catalog and how we need them more than they need us because what good is a music store if there’s no music in it, blah blah blah. I was trying to explain the position they’re in and I mentioned Ozymandias. One of the goons says, I swear to God: “Ozzy? Did you say Ozzy? We don’t have Ozzy. He’s with Epic, which is part of Sony BMG, you idiot!” Total commentard. I love it.
