This is, apparently- connected to
They just hook you up with CD Universe when you sign on, i guess.


I also stopped by COLONY RECORDS today-
for those of you who don't know...
Colony Records is NYC institution here...
it's been around for ages and has been selling all kinds of music (sheet, recorded and/or otherwise) forever, basically.

I asked them what protocol is for having them sell a CD-
and he said, 

"Well, you bring one around- the guys 'in the back' (what? chained to the radiator?) listen to it..
if they like it...
you bring in ten copies.
And then if those ten copies sell, then we'll ask for more and then cut you in."

Of course in my MIND....
i'm like 'Jigga whaaaaaah?'

I didn't pay for ten CDs so you all could just MAKE money off them...
so i could have the honor of being sold in COLONY RECORDS for fuck's sake...
and not even get 5 cents for it.

But out LOUD i said, "Yeah. Well i'll bring one around, and 'the guys in the back' like it- you can call me and we'll figure it out."

which is code for....

"If you like it, i'll give you TWO free ones and then if you want more, we negotiate."

i mean...TEN free copies?

for the record-
it seems that the USUAL way it goes is...
in this sort of 'store buying' situation...

they buy ten CDs off you at a DISCOUNT.
Say, $10 each.
And then they can sell it for whatever they want but...
this whole, "hey let me just give you product so you can just make the money..." is beyond retarded.

it might all be moot if the 'guys in the back' aren't in the mood for my fabulosity of musicalle-ness.

But, i'll keep you all posted....

stay tuned darlings!!!
