 Luke Sayers Says: They Don't Want Me
Not cool enough for the Detroit music scene? Can't get invited to all the right parties or get to play at all the right clubs? Having difficulty getting those well-insulated Detroit rags to write about you or even take you seriously? Well you're in good company bandheads. Inspired by yet another night of playing to the backs of a crowd of uninterested musicians and bar staff, acoustic rootsman Luke Sayers penned a funky little number called, "They Don't Want Me" which is currently available for a free download at his website.

 Royalty Hikes To Go Into Affect Monday: Your Immediate Action Required!
ATTENTION: Your immediate political action is required. On Wednesday, a federal court DENIED a plea for the delay of the massive hike in the royalty rates webcasters must pay record labels which will effectively put independent webcasters out of business. YOU need to contact your local congressional representatives TODAY and let them know that you're against this unfair rate that discriminates against the small webcasters who play YOUR music. Click "read more" below to read a letter from Pandora founder Tim Westergren. Links to past articles on MB about this very important subject are also included.

 Survey Says: Bring Us Home
Though few of you commented on our survey, "Have The Wars In Iraq / Afghanistan Affected Your Music?", I'd like to bring to your attention somebody who has not only been directly affected by those wars, but who wrote a song for his son who is now serving his fourth combat tour in Iraq. He is retired military veteran David Carver and the name of his song is, "Bring Us Home".

 New MichiganMusicians.com website Launched!
wiki writes So we finally opened our doors late last night to our brand new website for Michigan musicians/bands & fans of local music. I have decided to use xoops to power MM this time as it is my favorite open source cms out there. It has given me the possibility to add some new modules to the site that we have lacked in the past such as an image gallery were our members can upload photos, an inline forum to replace our former remotely hosted proboards forum, a callsifieds module, a module for members to submit and watch YouTube videos of local bands, blogs, reviews, an events module for submitting shows, an online store for artists/bands to sell their music on our site, and best of all a module that allows artists/bands to create a band page.

 The Ghost That Walks Reverses Time, Bears Fruit
Inspired by the amount of time he was wasting on the internet, electronic underground musician Paul "Ghostwalker" Bishop has committed himself to a once-a-week composition series that is intended to last an entire year.

"After wasting so much time in the last two years, not to mention the last ten. I decided to do something about it and pull my finger out of my arse. One track a week it is then," Bishop wrote in his DetroitCity.com blog.

He began his productivity turnaround simply by flipping his daily routine into reverse. Instead of working on music after looking at websites, articles, myspace, facebook, etc.. he made it the first thing he did in his day. The result is five compositions in five weeks so far, with 48 more to go (apparently including two weeks of well-earned vacation). Click "read more" below.

 Survey Says: Should Restaurants and Bars Ban Smoking?
In a recent e-mail, singer/songwriter Chris McCall made a plea to her fans. She writes:
Please consider writing to your representative in support of House Bill 4163 which proposes smoke free environments for all work sites, including bars and restaurants which are now exempt. Even if you smoke, I ask you to support this effort as so many of us who work in these environments face health problems and lost wages as a direct result of second-hand smoke. Although similar laws have passed in many countries and states, it has been said that it will never pass in Michigan. Please help. You can find out more at www.makemiairsmokefree.org My deepest thanks.

This prompts our latest MB Survey: Should smoking be banned in Michigan bars and restaurants? Vote in the right column or click here. As always, feel free to comment at the voting booth.

 MBlurbs: July 4, 2007
Welcome to another edition of MBlurbs. This time we catch up with Radiocraft at the Stars & Stripes fest in Mt. Clemens, just in time for tear-down. Ronnie gives me the 311 on Joey Bowen's return from the left-coast and the General Clusterfunk reunion. Jay informs us that it's a Blind Shame that band doesn't exist anymore, but three-fifths of a broken-ass band make for a Bulletproof Moxie.
