Our band (Friends in Need of) buckled down and bought a "pure-promo" (for $350) and now just because we're on the front page of purevolume.com we get over a thousand plays a day. It kind of makes me sad, but I hope that even when we're taken off we'll still do a hell of a lot better than we had been doing (try 12 plays a day being an exciting high). When we're not on the homepage anymore people will have to go to purevolume.com/friendsinneedof to hear us.
I just realized that I have been claiming unemployment since November 28, 2005 and I have yet to receive a dime from them. Something is wrong.
