Insane, You are correct he is never going to stop hijacking and the only way to deal with it is going to be for everyone to simply not respond to anything he has to say on any subject. Mad

I have tried to get him to stop but keep falling into the trap, that will cease today, it is sad that it comes to this point!

Nope. No gas, nor charcoal. Baked up some mild sausages with veggies, tonight.

Shocked Once again I am struck by the silence on this forum it would seem that the certified hosts have little to say. I would think they would be very excited by their buddies the manus and the plan to launch the Cloud service. I wonder if it is finally beginning to sink in that maybe their friends and protectors, do not have their best interests at heart. That it is difficult to admit that all the so called gains made in fighting piracy is about to go up in smoke. That maybe the longed hoped for gains in wages will not happen, due to the market becoming flooded with cheap competition once more. Everything is riding on the Cloud and every host has to make a choice whether to support it or not. I have already made up my mind, anything started solely by the manus, and pushed by them can mean little good for the average host already in business, and doing well.
The goal is to make all hosts and venues weak and dependent on the manus. A strong and independent host structure comes into direct conflict with their vision. All such hosts will have to be brought onto the Cloud, since they would be bad examples to other hosts, seeking business independence.

Lone Ranger,
Just because we are not saying much here does not mean we are thinking or feeling what you assume. Part of why this forum has gone so quiet is because people as just tired of your spin. There are at least a few who have advised me that they dont even bother to read threads any longer if they see you were the last one to post. There is a good amount of communication going on via PM as that is a good way to use the forum without having to be subjected to your opinions. Some are even following Insane's advise to just ignore you in entirety....Think about these points before each post

So far Athena my opinions and ideas I don't think are so off the wall that an element of truth does not exist in them. True mainly I'm speaking from my position as someone who works almost daily in the business. Someone actually out here day in and day out doing the job. The Joe six pack of the karaoke industry, the journeyman host. I don't pretend to be anything other than what I am. Not a lawyer, a judge, or even a corporate manager. No three piece suit, no limo, no expense account. Yet I do take pride in what I do, and I don't like be dictated to by a bunch corporate big shots. It is ok to ignore me all you want to, sooner or later the truth will come out, because if even you bury it, the rocks themselves will shout it. We don't have that long to wait to see how this karaoke drama of ours will play out now do we? Have a nice day.

P.S. My spin is nothing compared to the manu spin and their supporters, it is important to maybe have a different perspective sometimes.

Since this is in the Non-Karaoke forum I can just say that the naysayers are being proven wrong with more to come.

So much will be revealed in the coming months!

I'm enjoying watching the fools who thought nothing would happen squirm!

Also it has been proven to me that there really are a bunch of stupid fucks in the karaoke biz!

Smart enough not to work for others, and run my own business. It would seem you have chosen your masters well since you like playing the faithful servant. I'm not squirming being nearly finished with my career in karaoke. You have demonstrated Insane your disdain for many hosts in our industry and yet you want to be part of it, that makes you even more stupid. Oh yes in the coming months, more fear you are trying to whip up as usual. You keep blowing a mighty wind but nothing comes out of the horn. The only thing happening in the coming months is this Cloud system, whether it will work or not. If not then what? More of the same of the last few years, or maybe the total implosion of the commercial industry and karaoke anarchy? What's the matter your crystal ball gotten a bit clouded?

P.S. I thought you weren't going to respond, can't even follow your own advice can you?

Flying a kite can be very relaxing, unless you get it caught in a tree like Charlie Brown always seems to do. The individual host is trying to fly a kite by running his business, keep it from being caught by some tree or trees as the case maybe. It was once thought that the pirate was the main problem facing commercial karaoke. If we could only get rid of him, it would solve the majority of the hosts problems. The solution, the Cloud system, might prove the old saying right, the cure is worse than the disease. Everything hinges on if enough hosts and venues will buy in to make it viable? SC has decided to have it both ways, it will hold back long enough to see if it works, if it does SC will jump on, if not they will still retain the loyalty of the hosts that support them and their on going process. Playing both sides of the street is the safe approach at least for them, who says you can't have your cake and eat it to. Have a nice day.

Alright, I'll break out me best Cockney accent, yeah?


Speaking of Brits, are they showing back to back episodes of Hell's Kitchen on your TV Guide? On mine, Fios, they are showing back to back Hell's Kitchens, tonight. One new one old, and tomorrow back to back Master Chef, one new and the Paula Deen episode.

Around here, frogs ARE part of the sounds of summer, especially after a day of rain.
