Happy to pass along some more music/entertainment focused learning.  If you read my comments here (and this is a must-read piece/conversation for artists), I hope the folks reading this here blog will see a more direct connection b/w the business of being an artist and the stuff I usually blog about.

That is to say: all this stuff about econ and strategy is highly applicable to the average musician.  I explain some of that in my second comment on this post.
