Of papercuts, college, and Nicki Minaj..

This was my 1st weekend for radio press mailings...where was everyone to stuff envelopes?? Just kidding, I ran out anyway.  I guess my math is not so good after all.  I wonder if this relates directly in any way to my success in college... all 3 times,...

So, I'm getting ready to swamp the mail boxes of college radio.  If anyone happens to know anyone, anywhere, at any station (college or commercial) that may be able to help get youbigme a fair shake for airplay, Please contact me.  Message me through Fbook, Reverbnation, or directly through contact@youbigme.com.  I'd really appreciate it, and any suggestion is helpful, be it song suggestion, contacts, or even criticisms.  Most musicians would be better off if people actually offered up their true thoughts on things, not that any one artist can be everything to everyone, nor should they try.  But when you spend every waking moment for 6 or 8 months putting together a release, it is easy to miss things that others see or hear as obviously good or bad.

Speaking of Artists, the world is still full of great new music, fresh and highly original.  But you are going to have to go beyond mainstream FM to get there.  Places like Reverbnation, IndieMusicChannel.com, riffworld, and even the New Music channel from mega Clearchannel showcase stuff just as good or better than you hear on normal radio.  Do yourself a favor, and stream some of the music from these sites while you're doin stuff around the house.  New music can still be exciting and not come from someone stalked on TMZ or Inside Edition.

Hope you all had a great weekend, and no Wardrobe Malfunctions....
