    I'm so tired of untalented Bands getting credit for so much. I'm tired of talented musicians being overlooked. Wheres the talent.

    What the internet keeps proving to me is that there is more talent than FAME to go around.

    Not just in music, but in art, and writing, too.

    FAME and the money it brings seems to have damned all less to do with true talent than it does MARKETING.

    Well, on commercial radio anyway. The bands are out there, they're just on different media and they don't get the publicity or the $$. There is a whole other subject in here about washed up artist wanting to collect more dough for the mountain of crap that has been commercial radio for the past 30 years.

    Yeah, I feel the same way about posters with half naked women for avatars. They don't make you any smarter.

    Nothing if it's a photo of said poster.

    And you do know the difference between "naked" and "nekkid" ?

    "Naked" means you are without clothes.

    "Nekkid" means you are without clothes and up to something.
