** besides which, most people just don't care. think of how many billions
of people there are in the world, now think of how many listen to western
music, then think about how many listen to non-pop music . . . if you keep
going down, i think that you'll get to a point where MAYBE one tenth of
one percent of the world's population could concievably, at any given
point in time, care about what anyone on this list is doing. and the rest
will either be indifferent or hate it - - or not. i do what i do because i
believe in it; it sure ain't to prove to humanity how clever i am or to
make the big bucks, it IS nice to have some people who seem to care and
support it, though. (this could speak to the
rip-off/dishonesty/stealing/self-indulgence sub-threads). it would be a
lot easier to NOT do it, dig?
Or as the late Sonny Sharrock related to his upset and crying wife (who
had performed with him) after a gig involving serious audience retreat.

I'll bet your kids beat up on you too! 8-) Is there anything we can all do

this very moment! The GPS tracking system is functioning perfectly!)
Sometimes a bad review helps me remember just how diverse and
factionalized the world is.
Strange times indeed...
