    It's definitely funny! I'll bet a bass that a recording studio owner wrote it.

    This reminds me of an old joke.

    Q: What does a Grateful Dead fan say when he runs out of drugs?

    A: "Man, this music sucks."

    (Please don't hurt me, Deadheads!) :bag:

    I *LOVE* that type of satirical humor, where someone exaggerates to make fun of something! The guy or gal who wrote that mock ad obviously had a helluva fun time writing it! And as they say, truth is always funnier than fiction, and that satirical ad isn't far from the truth with respect to some of the eye-rolling CL ads we have all seen from time to time.

    They even took the time to intentionally misspell some of the words. That's just..............fenominal! :D

    Two thumbs up! :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

    Better yet(although it is a bit dated)...Why is it so hot on stage at a Grateful Dead concert?

    The fans don’t work.

    I think they don't know much about the history and the now days of the pro music world. But maybe some kind of like them will respond.

    :thumbsup: But it doesn't sound like a joke and the photo, too, I think they really think that way.

    I know these guys...they're actually not that bad if you're into Polynesian speed gospel.

  19. My favorite part was the math calculations:
    "We figure that a minimum market of 1% is 3 million sales at $1.00 a song you have 3 million dollars".

    Too bad that in the real world, the band doesn't make a $1 per song, actually more like 1 cent per song
    after the middle men take their cut.

    I think they'd be better off hitting up their family and friends for funding.
