Argh! Why do people expect something for nothing?

I am a little frustrated. We humans should have a way to go- the average lifespan for a vertebrate species on Planetus Earthus is, I believe (and am too lazy to check, what's a billion here or there, after all?), 2 to 4 billion years. Yet, increasingly, we see evidence that all this me, me, me-ism of our ego-driven brains is not good for our species. Our cozy position on the top of the food chain is predicated, of course, on the chain existing to sustain us.

No, this is not going to be my usual rant about overconsumption and the snake eating its own tail.

Where am I going with this? Well, we have had some very positive repsonses to our DJ Mixcast Contest announcement, but we have also received some...not so positive.

It seems that our requirement that you purchase the Lycans Meeting CD is just too much for some people. Never mind that if you are a DJ, of course you get EVERY RELEASE FREE. And stuff like a label t-shirt, at a minimum.

And it takes us a lot of time to set up the label, to compile the albums, to master, to pay for artwork...to set up the podcasts AND the voting... !

So, if you want to download the music, go for it! Enjoy! Just don't enter our little contest.

To make our label philosoply CLEAR: we share all profits equally with the artists and we work our asses off for all of them. We are not in this for ourselves. We are trying to help our community. And have enough money in our pockets to take care of ourselves and our baby.

That is it.

Thanks to everyone who understands the power of giving, the power of love, the power of unity, the truth that it is in the darkest night that stars shine brightest.
