Top of the flops
Their latest get-rich-quick scheme was to promote some generic rock ballad to the membership, exhorting them to nag their colleages, friends and family into buying it. Apparently if it got into the top 40 then some magical money fairy would shower a bounty on MAG using the profits from a gig tour later this year.
Apparently MAG have never heard that in the entertainment industry, there are never any profits, at least not ones that get paid out to people on a percentage of the net.
Ah well. In the event, it apparently made it into the provisional top 100 last Thursday and there was a final big push to get just 3200 more downloads before Saturday in order to get into that vital top 40.
Sadly, MAG had also not figured on any other tracks between 40 - 99 getting any more purchases, and it dropped right out of the top 100. Total wash, except for those who had the dubious pleasure of listening to whomever-it -as yowling on about whatever-it-was.
What has any of this got to do with biking, I hear you ask?
Well, not a damn thing as far as I can see.
