THE NEXT BIG THING: UNDERESTIMATING YOUR INTELLIGENCE

Does anyone know why this site exists?

(Hint: What do all these people have in common? Or rather WHO do they have in common?)

"They" think you don't know why this site exists. Now, my question is, does it matter if you do? Does the site still do to you and for "them" what "they" want it to if you know?

At first I thought it probably had something to do with similar hair cuts, but it's probably that they're all really worldly secular music acts just itching for the chance to poison the minds and libidos of America's youth. Right?

Oh, and Shaun, Caedmon's is independent now. Sorry I didn't tell you. Maybe that's why we're not a BIG thing anymore...

I wish i could get the "next big thing" down to a meager 13 people who all happen to be on my label...

But the real question is: Are they good enough to be a square peg?

Are you kidding me? Well...at least they bring us free java at CCM. :) Yes, even the editorial interns get in on the fun.

Interesting site, indeed. It does very little for me...except make me shake my head.

I think I'm fairly marketing-proof, so I'm not really affected. I'm not exactly insulted either, since I wouldn't pay attention even if I didn't know who was behind it. All in all, it's pretty lame. Hype like that is rather pathetic.

Isn't Ruben Morgan on RocketTown? IF it is still around?

Sorry I'm lost.
What's wrong with that site?

For those who don't get it, these "big things" are all distributed by the same company. The site even says "Copyright Povident-Integrity Distribution".

To me (and I guess Shaun), it says that the site isn't worth listening to. If you want real people talking about the next big thing, then go somewhere else.

I guess that encourages me though: the labels want publicity from the little guy so much that they're trying to look like the little guy.
