i definitely see your angle, but this thought makes me cringe. being someone who "creates" music, the idea of having my label "manage" me is scary to say the least. i really don't think that can worms is worth opening AT ALL.



I'm curious: what about this is frightening to you?

what about it isn't frightening? tell me one positive of having a label manage you?

it scares me cuz why the fuck would ANY artist who has any amount of REAL hustle need a manager/label? so i can pay multiple people to do what i'm perfectly capable of? booking/recording/distribution? seriously? this day & age, that is just not wise. it's like labels who want you on their label cuz of your proven previous work, but then go & tell you what songs/beats/ideas they think you should use instead of trusting the artists' intuition. 10-15 years ago, i get it. now? no thanks.

I have been late jumping into the e-reader boat for the past few years but it is something that interest me. I have a shit-ton of research articles on my computer, can you upload the .pdf to a kindle and read them on the fly then. Does it work well? Can you organize files in folders?

In case anyone was wondering, the Barnes and Noble version of the kindle is a pile of shit. Don't get it.


Umm no it isn't. It's awesome. Better than the kindle, IMO.


Mother-in-law already had hers replaced after 2 weeks. We're 3 weeks into the second one so hopefully it holds up this time...

edit: That and Barnes and Noble is going bankrupt.
