    Apparently this law passed or about to be passed...

    In Russia the government either passed or will pass a law saying that "lip-synching will be a federal crime under article of "fraught" and will be punishable as criminal offence"


    THANK YOU LORD... Russia is last place i expect to pass a good law like that... more countries should follow...


    if you say otherwise you are wrong... This is only time EVER i agree with those commies... but damn do i agree with them!

    PS not 100% sure about this... but thats what i saw/heard it might be true... either way its a great idea!
    Cheers

  4. I'm going to give you the benefit of the doubt regarding the commie thing..... on a side note, maybe this will cut down on crappy acts. Now all they need is for pop stars getting others to write their music for them. Right comrade?

    Now if we could just get sampling and those dam pitch shifting software things banned. Half the music business would be immediately looking for day jobs. And I doubt Paris Hilton would be able to "bless" us with her groundbreaking new CD! :p

    Also I think the new No Synth bass law, with the Stevie Wonder exception, of course, is a great idea. Man tell congress to quit messing with filibusters so it can do the work of the people (bass players)!!!
