yeah, that's the type of response I thought I'd get. Not everybody is as lucky or as talented enough to make a living at something they love. If you can make a living out of it, then congrats. But if you can't thems the breaks. If your going to blame joe blow who works a 9.50 an hour job and decides that he'd rather get his music for free to explain why you can't make a living at what you love, well I'm sorry that's just the way it is. If you love what you do, you will do it regardless of whether you can make a living out of it or not.
Besides, If you're always trying to sell yourself to a label, where does the selling end and the artform begin?
