| how about ...a little fly fishin.. |
You guys are funny. Well, I have been fishing a little bit on Linkedin. I've been sending out my cd's to a few interested people. THIS is very hard for me, I would rather give than sell. Asking for myself...this is hard. But I do want to say, to you, thank you for all the great advice so far, and I really appreciate the help...Michael, would you want me to send you my cd's. As a gift? Would you like that? anyways, I am trying to stretch myself this way. Have a wonderful evening everyone! rachel

Richard, Terry & Barbara bring up good points on this blog! So, before anyone asks, I can say that I do follow up and update as many people as possible. I try people who have expressed something positive about one or the whole 'lot' of us.... Some of the 'relationships' are re-kindleable, and apparently others aren't....as the person doesn't get back with me! Rondo and Barbara McMann acknowledge and hit the nail on the head of this issue.... Lately, there HAVE been 'nibbles'....but the odds, and the rejection rate is staggering! My late dad, amaster musician and salesman used to say, 50 years ago, "See 10, Sell !"..... Today, I'd guesstamate, at least in the music biz, its probably between 1000-5000 to 1!

| V.P. WB? |
The Vice President of Production at Warner Bros. ? I used to fix his copier. There you go, one degree! I doubt if he would remember me, I don't think I remember him. I do remember meeting one of the Warner Brothers, he was very old, in that tile roofed bungalow off olive. The V.P. is over in the mirrored building. I enjoyed your article on Mr. Goober, he was back on the lot behind Joel Silver. Good times! Nial

We also have a very detailed and well layed-out website that among other things contains our catalog of about 50 original compositions that encompass every conceivable style and genre that there is! The website, for anyone interested in whether or not I'm blowing "hot-air" is at www.reverbnation.com/richpulinmusical family The 3550 messages were sent to people who represent themselves as executives (some apparently high-ranking) of companies like Warner Brothers, Disney, CBS, NBC, etc I am a vip member of the royalty tracking agency BMI, since 1974 Not that I'm looking for any WOW'S, but I have had hits, including a Platinum in '74 with "Boogie Woogie Woman" This seems like evidence of terminal insincerity & apathy

| 'Fishing' |
I want to reiterate something mentioned on my last blog..currently, I have sent in excess of 3550 e-mail style messages to people connected to artist representation, recording and music licensing/publishing.. I am a serious senior veteran participant in ALL of those areas and work daily and very diligently at networking to publicize what 'Rich Pulin Musical Family' is all about, which is writing, producing, performing and recording incredible music! After years of study and thousands of hours of 'OJT', over a period of 55 years, I feel that 'RPMF' is a brilliant group that deserves to be heard, sponsored,represented, licensed etc.... !2-18 hours a day on the internet....3550 intelligent messages to industry leaders?

| I wanna go fishing |
Good fish connections...however one has to be delicate about using one's connections. I so want to be the girl in the above photo.

Never! In the years that I've been "dabbling" in in social media, I have never once filtered through my followers to see if there's any real good connections there. Duh!

| Going Fishing |
I Have over 1000 LinkedIn contacts. Have I ever scanned thru them to see who's who? Never. It's a great reminder!

| Stocking my pond |
I've been too busy stocking the pond to actually fish in it! Huh?

| getting out the fishing rod |
I can see the fish connections in my pond but frankly getting out the fishing rod to actually contact these people gives me pause. I feel like I'm calling out a favah from the Godfathah and wonder what the repercussions will be.

| fishing in my own pond |
My first reaction was, "no I don't know anyone," but then I decided to check my pond and low and behold I found 2 people I'd forgotten about that can help me. I have already contacted them and am so excited to connect!
