1,000 True Fans

Unless artists become a large aggregator of other artist's works, the long tail offers no path out of the quiet doldrums of minuscule sales.

You should know about The Law of 1,000 True Fans

I fucking hate television. I’m not a fan of “culture,” if such an ambiguous word even contains meaning. Television is made for the average American. A statistical homunculus with one testicle and one fallopian tube that causes most television to be a bland, watery remix of stories that serve as the bread that sandwiches the advertising that is force fed down millions of American’s already gluttonous, drooling mouths.

That escalated quickly.

What’s beautiful is seeing my peers creating. We are at a unique age. We’ve been out of high school for a few years and coupled with social media, we can see the growth of our peers. Some have been growing faster than others. Some have flat out withered away.

*As a quick side note, we need to grow enough to not hate on the high school stars who have fallen, but be mature enough to feel compassion for them and maybe even reach out to help, but I’m getting off topic.

I see genuine music creation, quality video and photography services, and some sexy apparel products. These are our peers! Not some impersonal corporation. We are seeing their companies and creative expression in its infant stage. We can help raise them.

Cancel your television service, ask for only Internet, use this reference. There, you’re saving at least $50 dollars a month on your cable bill and your brain isn’t being fucking raped by shitting commercials. Use that spare money and mental clarity to support your peers.
