Continued from page 1

The Future Ė The Internet Battle lines can be drawn in this vast market. Smaller labels can have attractive websites for their acts at a relatively cheap price. Hosting of these sites will not be an unmanageable expense either. The smaller labels can promote with banners and not have to absorbrepparttar cost of printing and manually distributing flyers and post cards to a smaller scope of potential buyers. The buyers onrepparttar 146736 Internet that can be reached arerepparttar 146737 same as that ofrepparttar 146738 major labels.

What about radio overrepparttar 146739 Internet? It is still developing and today would be a great time to develop an artist overrepparttar 146740 Internet. Major labels have no control overrepparttar 146741 stations onrepparttar 146742 Internet yet!! Developing a radio station overrepparttar 146743 Internet is viable option for a small label. The cost associated again with doing so is not prohibitive.

Investigate and do your homework aboutrepparttar 146744 Internet and promoting on-line. The market is open for smaller companies as much as it is forrepparttar 146745 bigger companies.

Attacks On Traditional Values Are Not Selling At The Box Office

Written by Bill Knell

Continued from page 1

One would have thought that this yearís lackluster ratings for The Academy Awards television broadcast would have sent a strong message to liberal filmmakers. Withrepparttar vast majority of nominations having gone to dreary films that extolrepparttar 146623 perceived benefits of a liberal utopia, millions of viewers tuned out. They just didnít watch. Now, it seems,repparttar 146624 same thing is happening atrepparttar 146625 box office. People arenít watching byrepparttar 146626 millions. Those who do canít stomachrepparttar 146627 morality lessons enough for a second viewing.

Apart from liberal themes, there arerepparttar 146628 liberal actors. Sean Penn recently traveled to Iran to observe and report onrepparttar 146629 elections there for a major American Newspaper. One wonders why? Perhaps he hoped to find another dictatorial utopia for America to leave alone? He and many of his liberal friends seemed to feel that Saddam Hussein had created some sort of socialist Muslim heaven on earth that America had no right to disturb.

Liberal actors, musicians and artists all joined together inrepparttar 146630 past couple of years for what they were sure would be a successful effort to preventrepparttar 146631 War with Iraq and keep President Bush from serving a second term. Most were devastated when these efforts failed miserably. Perhaps they felt that what they were doing was akin torepparttar 146632 Hollywood Canteen and War Bond drives of World War II fame? If thatísrepparttar 146633 case, they were wrong.

Bad mouthingrepparttar 146634 President and trashing our troops is notrepparttar 146635 way to winrepparttar 146636 hearts and minds of most Americans. Holding tyrannical dictators like Castro and Saddam up as socialist miracle workers is crazy. Creating entertainments that trash values held dear by any faction of Americans is wrong, counter productive and irritating. People donít go torepparttar 146637 movies to be irritated.

What will it all come to? King Kong gets a non-traditional marriage to Godzilla and adopts Mothra who savesrepparttar 146638 whales from Republican Fishermen? Liberals have every right to share their vision of what America should be. Itís no crime and never should be for them to express their frustration at prejudice faced by those living in non-traditional situations. Itís also just as fair for those who beg to differ with their views to avoid entertainment venues that extol liberal values.
