My most sincere condolences.
Music Majors are dying a slow and painful death. Slow as they have somehow yet to realize they're relevance is nearly insignificant in the new market place, and painful as they convince themselves the music they put out is top shottaz.
I only thank the majors for @ one time employing me, and @ another time for letting me go. Sumnambulism sucks. My love for music and my network grew xfolds afterwards and I have never looked back or been happier since.
At present, my quotidian routine is unaffected by their release schedule, whilst I do my best to offer my peers a relief schedule. One which will provide you what you've been thirsting for: mucho sabor, or flavor if you like. Too many times however, marvelous melodies have been manacled by music label megalomaniacs who are as adrift as a cat with no whiskers.
My good friend Jack Davey of J*Davey fame has penned a brilliant missive to the afore mentioned:
"lights out !" : an open letter to the record industry & the idiots who work for the fascist regime .
[tisk, tisk, tisk]
We are all mortals so why fight it? Labels play like they're Methuselah. The most important corporations in music or not even labels! They are all bracing themselves for MacWorld next week.

Flowers to the 19 who all got canned yesterday @ Universal Music Group in Toronto. Is the sky not beautiful?
Regardless, shouts to Jack, Brooke. Victory shall be ours.
Jack sPRayed the facts, Metallica wields the axe. Enjoy.
