Confucius say...

So I lost my phone this morning and some Good Samaritan turned it into the Sprint store. And renewed my faith in the people of Brooklyn. Thank you, whoever you are.

On the way back from Montague a thought hit me randomly.

Over the years I have seen and had so many ideas stolen. And I have 'borrowed' a few here and there.

A couple of years ago we tried to bite the Cornerstone mixtape. We produced something called 'The Combo Platter' for a while. Then soon after our competition bit our bite. A few years later and the only one standing is the Cornerstone mixtape. Our attempt fizzled out after 4 or 5 mixtapes (that were actually cd's, but whatever).

A mixtape was a great idea and Cornerstone made it look easy. And therein lies the lesson. Making it look easy is the antithesis of being easy.
Those not as skilled are easily seduced by this mirage.

But U could and should do a Combo Platter mixtape podcast. Shouldn't that be cheaper and easier?
