    Good example of not being in touch with producers, music supervisors and whatnot. I hate the track, but it was in some high production movie...

    I was referring to the post that Mike Greene deleted.

    Anyway, I resolved my cue sheet issue. I was hosed.

    Have fun with your arguing.

    I'm thinking about CMDess private. Funding secured. I can afford to buy it at .00000004 per share now that I control my catalog. That's .00000003 above the Spotify value. My Saudi non-binaries know what's up!

    Truth be told I know inside I'm only worth about .00000001 for the whole catalog (with the exception of fart symphony No.2). shhh...don't tell the ruling class.

    How can I even tell if it's really me posting? Can I prove it? Well the post does kinda suck. Yup it's me. Darn.

  8. I got over 400 minutes of original music at prime time on a major network (ABC) affiliate.
    The ridiculous ASCAP survey system made it so that i never made a penny, since they claimed that the slot (7pm !) didn't fall within the survey's windows.
    I had the backing of the network's president, spent hours on the phone with ASCAP, to no avail.
    This would never happen with the french PRO, la SACEM.
    They will collect every penny from the most remote bar anywhere within their juridiction.
    ASCAP (and the US model) sucks!
