So Glenn sends me a link to this fellow Scott Andrew’s blog in which he calls for some kind of musical deathmatch involving me. Once and for all, I don’t do deathmatches – I don’t even do painmatches. A minordiscomfortmatch is as far as I’ll go.
But the point is, Andrew links to this NPR story about Dresden Dolls. They tour full time, probably work pretty hard, and apparently make $1500 a month. Wha? Of course their label deal gives them only about a dollar per CD, and I guess when they tour they spend money on a road crew and a bus and stuff like that, because they’re an actual band. But how depressing is that? They’re like, a real band with a label and everything. I make more than that, and I have no idea what I’m doing. How can this be?
