[BUT, AS MY MATE GUY HANDS KNOWS,
IT COULD BE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD]

WHAT’S WRONG

HK-TVB, ATV, NOWTV, every music company- major and minor- the media- many in the pockets of many- which has made idols and celebrities of cosmetic talent picked for their ‘looks’, the absolutely useless Create HK and why and how, it’s being paid for doing nothing, the equally useless Hong Kong Government, websites that are vanity showcases for a new Overseas Chinese, racism, prejudices, payola- in very many ways including the old Casting Couch method, materialism, incredible hype that stinks to hell, The Peter Principle where incompetence is rewarded- or bought, cronyism, nepotism etc. 

WHAT’S RIGHT

The trial for former HK-TVB General Manager Stephen Chan, below, and his cronies and toadies.
Hopefully, this might open Pandora’s Box and make public the sacred cows of the Hong Kong industry who have got away making millions from the Hong Kong music industry going back to the Sixties and when they “invested” in advertising agencies, printing companies, CD manufacturing plants, piracy etc…

 

“Yes, I am an absolute twat. But I have made gazillions”.

WHAT’S WRONG

The IFPI and MOST other “organizations” set up to “protect the music industry”.
These “music industry organisations” are made up only for the music labels and do bugger all for artists.

WHAT’S RIGHT

When someone creates a TRULY vicious ARTISTS Rights Organisation and hires a hard-ass like Barrister Kevin Egan as its lawyer.
Egan is a vicious bulldog, ready to bite anything that smells of “bureaucracy” and attacks anyone getting “back-handers”.
He’s an artist’s and man’s best friend and doesn’t pretend to be a toothless “entertainment lawyer” with a finger in too many pies.          

Kevin “The Bulldog” Egan: “I eat wankers for breakfast”.

WHAT’S WRONG

Peoples given the position and titles of “arrangers” and “producers” and who only want to hear something which sounds like something else and get baffled if they don’t hear a song which does not start with an intro, has two verses, a chorus, a guitar break from the Eighties, a meandering bridge, one more chorus, a verse, a key change and where that chorus- usually “based” on “Desperado”- is pummeled to death. And you wonder why all Canto-Pop idols sound the same: Ploddy, cloddy and vapid?

WHAT’S RIGHT

To fire them all together with Ye Olde School music executive fat cats who wish to see photos of the artists before hearing any music.

~*~
WHAT’S WRONG

Music execs, arrangers, producers etc, who don’t get out much, but still talk knowingly about “giving the fans what they want, when they want and how they want it”. Yawno. Really? And when they still don’t know the difference between a club and a lounge, talk about “discos” and pick up tidbits from what music fans are tweeting and commenting about and which puts them behind the eight-ball once again?

WHAT’S RIGHT

Music fans taking control and drumming out these sycophants.

 ~*~

WHAT’S WRONG

Lack of views, lack of entrepreneurs supporting the local music scene, lack of the Hong Kong Government supporting the music industry- a few raids on illegal sales of music is more for the PR. There is just simply a lack of anything and everything and anyone doing anything- not even writing about the pox marks of the local music industry which is being covered by huge globs of make-up aka hype.

WHAT’S RIGHT

China sentencing Zang Chungjiang, a former senior executive from China Mobile to death this week for bribery.
China Mobile has been a HUGE pox on the music industry in China and, like a fish, it stinks from the head down.
Sometimes, China gets it right.

WHAT’S WRONG

All those “awards” shows which are ALWAYS fixed and where the “winners” feign disbelief and Thank their mama sans when the results have been known for weeks, special seating has been designated to all “nominees”- the winners are always in the front for production and camera angle reasons- and with HK-TVB being the “prime mover” behind these con jobs.

And the award for Most Oxymoronic name- Twins.

WHAT’S RIGHT

Yes, let’s repeat something from above: The trial for former HK-TVB General Manager Stephen Chan and his toadies for graft and allegedly making a mint outta artists and looking after their own backs only and, ironically, “waging” a very long and boring war against the majors by asking that TVB cough up more money when it comes to Royalties than the peanuts they have been paying for decades.

 Stephen “None for you, five for me” Chan.

Hopefully, this might open a can of worms and bring about investigations into so many thousands of sacred cows who have got away milking and bilking millions from the Hong Kong music industry going all the way back to the Sixties and when they invested in advertising agencies, printing companies, CD manufacturing plants, piracy etc…

WHAT’S WRONG

Wankers, tossers, losers, bullshit artists who talk the talk and then talk and talk and talk about who they know, how famous they are, what they do and then, well, deliver nothing and go back to being the usual tossers living in La-La Land and being cock-eyed optimists.

WHAT’S RIGHT

When someone sets up The Hong Kong List of Wankers so people no longer have to waste time listening to them and- key- falling for the bullshit.

I’m sure there are more Wrongs than Rights and more Chans than Chins, but I’ll stop right here….
