Living the Dream: One CD at a Time

I remember when I first put the Brobdingnagian Bards on MP3.com and started to learn the ropes. I would listen daily to music there, but I never listened to bands that were higher in the charts than we were because I didn't want to boost their ratings any more than they already were.

I guess greedy. It totally dog-eat-dog. But it wasn't until I started to listen to my own advice that I started to make some changes and helping my fellow musicians. And it wasn't until I started to help you that our success took off.

Yeah, there are many reasons why we've done consistently well on the mp3.com charts, but one of the main ones is that I've been willing to scratch someone elses back with no expectation of a return. And while there's no expectation, there always is a return.

It's one of those great conundrums, I guess. I mean, how is it possible that when you help someone else You will benefit... Yet I'm amazed to see that it happens. And it happens all the time.

The more I am willing to give, the greater my return.

Just yesterday, I got an email from a Nagian (one of our fans) saying he loved our music and would do everything he could to promote us. Just ask.

But the only thing I can do is to humbly ask him to turn around and see if he needs his back scratched.
