I listened to a couple of her songs, and I kind of liked them.

Sorry, Marissa, I know a hundred, maybe a thousand other singer/songwriters who are at least a good as you. Get in line with the rest of us, work your ass off, stop living off of Daddy's money (just speculation), and learn the value of a dollar.

I just read the poems on her website. A check for $750.00 is in the mail. It is art after all. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Art?!? My music is just something to stick in your ear. But have you seen the price of a good "ear job" lately??

I suggest that we put a "meter" on all of our CDs, and charge by the minute. \:D

I'd certainly consider a donation pool to guarantee that she never write another poem...

I wonder if she has sold anything? She has the right idea, in a way. You have to sell a lot of CD's at 10-15 bucks to make a living. At the prices she is charging, she is taking into account the low number of sales she'd probably get at any price. I think she figures its about patronizing the arts. I wish her well, but I doubt she'll make any sales at that price.

I actually donated money to her, clicking on the link on the bottom of the page.

I think I know that woman. Whatever...., the price of anything is whatever.......the market will bear. I've got a 1985 Volvo 240 DL, which is THE classic Volvo that I'll sell you right now for........$25,000, negotiable. I compounded the hood and cleaned it up real good. Let me know if you're interested.

At least she has the guts to try something different. She won't succeed IMO, but I gotta give her credit for audacity.

Extra credit for lunacy. :p

Jean Michel Jarre did a limited pressing for a charity once. I think it was $1000 per LP. The promise was that these songs would not appear on any other records ever.

Can't you smell the spam frying? LindseyR (who, coincidentally hails from NYC just as "Marissa" does) signs on and her first post is this? No "hi, new member here, I'd like to introduce myself...", just "go look at my... er, uh, I mean this crazy woman's web site".

"...why she is so different than the rest of us." Us? Waddya got a mouse in your pocket?

probably right Alan. Trolling for suckers?

I got one of those Nigerian e-mails today. I sent the guy back a note saying I was in, but the split wasn't good, he had to give me 60 percent. Haven't heard back from him yet.

I'll pay the $100.00 but I need something else besides the CD!

I think Marissa/Lindsey must be Bralalalala's sister... On second thought, Marissa/Lindsey probably is Bralalalala...

"A musician selling a Cd for 100 dollars each, is she crazy or brilliant??"

She's brilliantly stupid!

Who ever made that fucking "how to ruthlessly promote yourself in the music buisness" book should be shot.

Ok, there is nothing really wrong with promoting yourself, i guess, but god, play in time and write some even marginally interseting lyrics lady.

Definitely a troll. Do a Google search on Marissa Marchant, and you'll see a bunch of links to message boards with someone :rolleyes: named Lindsay saying what an amazing talent she (MM) is...

She's been a busy little...

Musical talent, maybe...but I wonder if she even uses pro-level gear? \:D \:D Has she won any grammies? \:D \:D

Ya know, though...her marketing ploy works. You know why? Because, she realizes no one's gonna buy a CD at those prices (except her rich Aunt Agnes). But...how do you make someone listen to your stuff? Say "My stuff is great...listen" or "I'm selling CDs for 100 bucks and they're worth it".

Do the psychology. EVERYONE HERE listened to her stuff. Everyone was morbidly curious as to whether some mystic siren had the power to give us a sonic "eargasm" worth 100 bucks with her voice and musical prowess. So, whether or not you thought it was worth 100 smackers, you listened, and perhaps when, in another month or two she starts offering her music for a more reasonable price, we'll have heard it.

Hey! Marissa!

SO you woke up one day and said, "I'm going to be rich, YEAH! I have an idea I will sell my CD's for $100.00 I'll be rich in one month"

"I'll promote myself on all the forums I can find on the net, all this people are morons that will buy anything anybody throw a them" right??

Please! :rolleyes:

Kinda reminds me of that Jack In the Box commercial where this kid was a 'taste tester' and he charged a huge fee.

They asked him how many orders he had, and his reply was "I only need one"...

It is actually psychology that she is pulling on us. If her CD has a SRP of $100 then she sells it for $20 "on sale" people will be storming the record stores to get it.

Hmmm.
$300 for the whole set?
Man, Jimmy Page should raise the price on Zeps boxset, he's losing his shirt!

I'm looking at her like I would a really expensive piece of.... gear.
Can't afford it, so I won't read the review. :p

Nice marketing gimmick she came up with. She will probably not sell any of her music at $100 a CD, but she created a buzz about her music that has people going to her site to listen. Pretty clever idea.

that's true too. I'll sell you the Wave files of my MP3.com stuff for a $1000.00 cash money.

On her site, she says:

Quote:
Where are the scientists? Why are people giving all their money to pop culture, when the amphibians are mutating and they are being born deformed. We very serious environmental problems. What do we do? We go give our money to a bunch of nobodies...
With this in mind, then, wouldn't it be better for all of us here to send contributions to the science folk - as apposed to spending $100 on a freakin' CD?

With a $100 price tag, she shuts out a lot of the people who might actually give a damn.

this girl is not very smart. Her gig section is just a giant unorganized rant. One of the funniest quotes she has at the end is:

"Meanwhile, why don't people respect nature? If they can't respect nature, how are they going to respect real talent?"

the funniest moment though is her conclusion that people watch tv because they can't handle relationships...

"I am also suprised that people buy all this "so called" entertainment. Why can't they entertain themselves and interact with others? All this impersonal spying and voyerismic obsession is a sign that people can't cope with relationships. They are not strong enough to love other people? They are shallow"

Intro:
When you can't stand the pace
In the Big Rodent Race
'Come on in where it's safe
Where the menu is tref... ###- "tref" means
"non-kosher"

There's a smell in the air
that reminds you of hair
You've got something to get
and it looks like your pet!
(aren't you hungry ?)
First we take some rat parts
and fry them up real nice..
Then we skin the kitties,
and barbeque the mice!
Bridge:
Guts in a Cup! (Yum!)
Mouse on a Stick! (Wow!)
French-fried Fleas
and Beer-battered Ticks!
Chorus:
Ra-aaat in a box...
(We fry what you won't--)
Ra-aaat in a box...
(We fry what you won't--)
Ra-aaat in a box...
(We fry what you won't...TOUCH!)
