The web is pretty amazing. I was clicking around randomly as they say and came across this:
I was startled. I didn’t know my CD had any relationship to something called Lala.com. But I did pay 35 bucks to CD Baby and they said they would handle digital distribution. I guess they did. So I clicked on the Links there in that picture and listened to those four songs for the first time in a long time. Not too bad, I thought.
You can’t click on those links here because that’s a page capture.
But you can listen to the first thirty seconds of all ten songs songs on the CD if you click on the links below.
This is the web for you, spreading like a spiderweb. I guess too Lala is engaged in what people call distribution or marketing. But the web is like a giant trash dump; you’re not going to find anything unless you’re looking for it in the first place.
Still, pretty amazing. Though I haven’t made a cent on the damn CD. Wait! Except for a few kind friends who bought the CD to make me feel good. Thank you, kind friends!
And, in any case, what’s really going on here is that I acting as an advertiser for Lala.
