Rllrbll & Buttons

Interview with the mighty Rllrbll in SuccoAcido. Check it out!

So I designed another 15 buttons today, so there’s a total of 30 more to set up on the button sales page.  I also listed the buttons for sale on Ebay & basically made $60 in an hour, which is pretty incredible.  If I could relatively passively make an extra $50 a day for an hour of work, I think I’d be pretty satisfied with my financial situation.

I read an article today that explained some of the reason why Silber has been not getting as much press/radio attention lately.  It talked about how blogs & webzines have shifted from indie to mainstream music as mainstream has embraced letting them embed music & started to offer more to them.  I can’t say I blame them.  I mean, certainly it drives more traffic to do your story about an artist with a million fans than one with ten fans & I know that most people are more curious about the next David Bowie record than the next Small Life Form record even if they are a Small Life Form fan.  It’s essentially gotten to the point where the way for an indie to get decent coverage is simple, pay a publicist $2500 or more.  Which to be honest is what the time of a decent publicist is worth, but all their work will probably only generate $500 in income… so it might not be worth it.  I don’t know.  We’ll see what happens.  If the button end of Silber takes off, then maybe I’ll take some of that money & actually invest in a publicist to just see what happens.

    checking out your ebay and how fitting that the only buttons with bids currently are cat buttons. Is that your biggest seller? in that case you should probably just make cat themed everything and cash in. CD’s, comics, novels (imagine an entire novel of just variations on meow, rowr, prrr)

    ps have you heard this band the beatles? you should def. include them in the next qrd.

    • There were some other buttons that sold with the “buy it now” option that I re-listed.
      I can’t keep track of new music, who’s this band called “The Beatles”?

    So it’s still true that the Internet is basically a series of tubes filled with porn and cats…
