This is a video by Dictaphone Blues that came out a week or so back.
It was funded by you and me courtesy of N.Z On Air.
In-fact the $6,000 it cost you and me was allocated back in April.
Around the same time I spent six hours of my own time making a humble You Tube Video of my own.
This is it:
Both videos are currently attracting about 20 views a day.
Theirs is better – but better doesn’t always mean more popular as this example shows.
Piss all views in the overall scheme of things.
But I’m not too worried because I do it for the love not to make money for myself, certainly not to support a multi-national corporate like EMI.
I hear you ask "What’s this got to do with EMI, a company that made approx NZ$600 million in 2010?"
Well Dictaphone Blues are signed to EMI.
Do you feel this is a good use of your taxes?
