Ok. Both demos are equal. You can only sign one artist though, do you sign the one you heard first, or the one who better fits the culture or "story" of your label?

Clinton -- I will never agree with that point. The key to success in anything (even in making personal endeavors successful to yourself only) is taking a general concept and bringing a clear and concise plan and vision to it in order to make it a reality.

Let's take another approach to your music example. Two musicians try to gain exposure for their demo. One burns a pile of CDs, quickly scribbles a name on it in sharpie and hits the streets, wearing whatever, and tries to shove a copy in the hand of any and every passerby in any general area, without any greeting or context whatsoever. The other artist puts their demo on iTunes, creates a nice businesscard with name, context, and online address to the demo, and hands these cards off to shoppers outside of a record store.

You're otherwise unfamiliar with either, but who's honestly gonna get your attention? Let's be honest here. Marketing and presentation matter -- even to you.

Of course, I know your rebuttal will be that the scribbled CD might have the better music on it. That's may be true. My rebuttal: A tree fell in a forest just now -- did you hear it?

My plan to lose 15 pounds is awesome too. But until I visualize (self market, if you will) the benefits of losing that weight in a way that I get psyched about, it won't happen.

My deepest condolences to Steven's family, particularly his young son, and to Quirky. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Congrats Mark on Pluck V2 I like the the darkest Deep Magenta the best since the contrast of egg residue will be noticeably higher while cleaning it.
