GO FIGURE IT OUT FOR YOURSELF ...BUT LET ME SAY I WILL TAKE YOU TO THE GREATEST SUSHI RESTAURANT IN YOUR LIFE .... MUSIC BLOWS ...I WISH I WAS A DOCTOR
If you could change one thing about the music industry today, what would it be?
CHANGING ANYTHING ABOUT THE MUSIC INDUSTRY RIGHT NOW WILL NOT SAVE OR IMPROVE IT ...ITS GOING TO MORPH INTO SOMETHING ELSE ...THERES NO MONEY IN IT ...CORPORATIONS ARE TAKING IT OVER AND USEING THE MUSIC TO PROMOTE PRODUCTS ....THERES NO MONEY LEFT TO DO ANYTHING ARTISTIC ON A BIG SCALE ....SAY GOODBYE TO MICHAEL JACKSON AND GOODBYE TO PINK FLOYD.....AND SAY HELLO TO HIGH SCHOOL THE MUSICAL
As soon as I’ve finished answering these questions I’m about to…
JACK OFF AND GO TO SLEEP IN MY BUNK TO MY DVD OF HIGH SCHOOL THE MUSICAL
