      I don't expect you to understand the hours involved in becoming a talented muso, rehearsing for months, writing a hit, recording the song, marketing the band, pressing the CDs and trying to get airplay / make some record sales... but you should be able to find a similar problem in your work...
    • 2001 March 5, Gary Meadows, “Darn it!”, aus.culture.true-blue, Usenet:
      Yeah...I probably wouldn't change have changed plans anyway. I'm sure my wife and children will get more out of a family day than if we headed into the big concrete jungle (aka city) to watch a few musos.
    • 2001 March 27, Mr Q. Z. Diablo, “[long] will the real goth please stand up”, aus.culture.gothic, Usenet:
      Don't blame the musos.  Blame the marketers, A&R men and record company execs.  You don't imagine for a moment that musos sought to inflict Bardot, Britney and Christina on an unsuspecting public.  Even the producers are only guilty of trying to feed themselves by attempting to write and execute popular songs that appeal to the LCD.
