This must be just a gratuitous excuse to write some filthy words in LAUGHJOHNLAUGHS! Blog- I was researching this because the words of my first ever single - "Does my bum look big in this? " contains the word ' ass ' in a line in the third verse. "Ohh please tell me baby do you like my ASS?" which is a fair relationship question imo ...but my G/f says in church circles it is likely regarded as lewd or crude .. hmm I hadn't realized. So here is some interesting material derived from a quick search on the topic - using the search terms ' is the word ass in lyrics considered explicit ' I got some information about the 7 dirty words or seven naughty or filthy words - whatever they may be titled. However if I publish the 7 naughty words in full then I need to mark my blog as explicit which is a shame - so may need to write a tamer version without the highly charged naughty/dirty words. Anyway basically the good news is as follows: I don
SonicBids and TAXI - PAY to PLAY Sonic Bids is a membership site that allows you to build an online Press Kit and search for gigs and songwriting opportunities. In Sonic Bids case the user joins the site usually to enter some kind of competition to get a gig or enter a songwriting competition. Seems OK so far but we the members still have to pay another entry fee for the opportunity. Perhaps I'm a malcontent ( I can be a pain if needs insist) but nothing much comes of the investment of funds except it seems that the already impoverished musician lays out even more money to pay to play.

The Promoter gets some cash and the site gets cash but what do I get Oh Oh What do I get! as the Buzzcocks asked once upon a time.
Hello Mad World - #baseseventynine in cahoots with YouTube.com to bully the little guy - scam alert. BASE 79: Scam Alert for Creators: there is a massive company scooping up and claiming ownership to any and everything . It's called Base79 Music, a spin off off of some of the youtube execs. Their thing is to claim they own part of your work and therefore deny you access to the pennies you might earn from it. So lets say I want to monetize my video - they run it via some database (I dont know how) and then say some one or one of of their partners own a right to something in my/your video. This just happened to me on legends. I made everything on this video and some jerks can come along and say they want a piece ! Oii we need some rights - privacy, ownership a chance to make something and say I made that. Very like a mafia shakedown. LEGENDS link - please take a moment to play or share this - stand up for the little guys - http://youtu.be/rf5QedtNi5w Anyway I digr
