TheRealMusician Recommends:

If you want to take marketing your music to another level, then I can't recommend enough John Oszajca's music marketing manifesto. My favorite aspect of his complete program was his stance on email marketing, where he really leverages the that "1000 true fans" philosophy.

His website is a bit hokey (Flaming guitars? Seriously?), but his program really shows independant artists how to get a leg-up on signed artists.

"Why isn't BAND X on this site?"

Well not everyone has the exact tastes as you. Chances are if a band isn't on this site, they either aren't very good, or I just haven't gotten around to making their page yet.

If you feel that a band deserves to be on here, you can add them to the site yourself. If I end up really liking them, chances are I'll add them to the official music artist directory.

"Why Do You Say 'Buy Band X's T-shirts, Hoodies, and More here' but you don't have any t-shirts listed, only albums?"

Sometimes a band doesn't have their T-shirts or other merchandise listed online.

This is unfortunate because I obviously cannot post Merchandise that doesn't exist online.

So instead, I'll put up some of their albums (the Vinyls if I can).

"What's with the random pictures I sometimes see in your articles? They aren't even related to your article most of the time, why do you do that?"

I have a dry sense of humor.

"Music Elitists Like You Make Me Sick!"

That's not a question. But to retort...

I used to have an image up on this site that showed a picture of my face, and the quote "I have better taste in music than you!"

Of course, some people didn't understand the satirical value of the image, and didn't understand that I was making fun of music elitists and their pretentious view on music.

Eventually I got tired of people not understanding a simple joke, so I took the image down.

Thanks for being ignorant!

"I saw you put your OWN BAND on your list of Top 40 songs everyone should hear before they die. What type of dick are you, anyways? Who do you think you are?"

I'm glad you noticed.

Now obviously I don't actually think my own band is as good as any of those other bands; but that doesn't mea...

...screw that. Who do you think YOU are, imaginary questioner?

"The Mars Volta sucks!"

Great Job!

For the Record, The Mars Volta is my favorite band.

I could give you a ton of reasons as to why, or I could give you just two:

The Mars Volta Shreds

And for the record, no I do not really like Octahedron all that much.

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
