the obvious, i misread you and i'm sorry for being rude. that's certainly not good public relations.
actually, as most who've done anything artistic in their lives, I've spent lots of unrecouped money for the pure delight of just DOING something creative. every band i've ever been in? totally. Jackie Vinyl could indeed be in the same category, however last fall I made almost 4 grand freelance in two months doing it, and that client came to see me yesterday and is delighted with this venture and will recommend me to other clients. so I will make money, I think, off authors/publishing houses rather than bands/labels, but that then will allow me to do the rock pro bono with a smile, which is all i'm going for.
i believe in volunteer work. i used to do rape crisis for 6 years at Bellevue until I moved to Bushwick and was too terrified to leave my house in the middle of the night to get to the hospital. jackie vinyl, i guess, allows me to do something for someone else again.
again, i'm sorry for being defensive and rude.
