exception to the rule
Yeah, Ok. Everyone wants to send my daddy a demo of their band. But Projekt's really not looking for any new bands, which is why they don't accept unsolicited demos. And besides, my Dad needs to spend his free time bouncing me, and changing me, and giving me a bath and taking me for nice walks to the C-Town supermarket, so I can look at all the pretty lights. Yet people still really want to send him demos. So here's the deal we've come to. Send a little gift for me - Sasha - and Sam will give a couple of songs from your demo a listen. It's unlikely Projekt will sign you, because Dad's not looking for any new bands... but it's possible that he'll like your CD enough to keep it for future listens. If not, (and you're in the U.S.) he'll send your cd back to you with a free sampler. The value of your gift will not increase the likelihood of your band being signed, so don't go crazy and buy me a swingset or anything. A $3 cap from the Gap will get you just as much as a $1 book about cats you buy at a resale shop.... [Dad butts in: "He's just a little boy, so no video games, Barney crap, or REALLY scary things."]
Let me see, there's a section from Kafka's Before the Law that relates here...
The man, who has furnished himself with many things for his journey, sacrifices all he has, however valuable, to bribe the (record label guy). The (record label guy) accepts everything, but always with the remark: "I am only taking it to keep you from thinking you have omitted anything."
thank you for all your great bribes
