Music Promotion Train "Contest"
Published on October 16, 2006 By Sean Conners aka SConn1 In Music
Just a quick note....

thru this thursday, October 19th, the Music Promotion train has decided to put me up with a bunch of other artists in a contest. I really don't think i'll win anything as I am sure that some of these people have bigger fan bases and all. I just don't want to get embarrassed. While I am sure, for some of you, that would be great, I hope others of you might take 30 seconds out of your life and give me a simple vote.

It's free, there is NO resistration required. You don't have to be a member of anything to vote. Please take less than a minute and vote for me. Consider it a warm-up / practice run for November, lol.

Here's the link...Link on the site you will see a list of artists in this weeks competition. My name (Sean Conners, yes i do use my real name here) is 3rd o r 4th from the top, I believe.

Thanks in advance. If you actually do want to check out some of my tunes, the site also links to my music site (click my name).

thanks again,

Sean Conners

I gave it more than 30 seconds and it's just not to my taste. I just got the feeling that it all sounds the same.



Folky sort of Simon and Garfunkel'ish.



Now I see why you are so democratically slanted with all of the decriminalize and pictures of buds on your MySpace. I only hope that one day MySpace is scoured for all of the people who think they are anonymous with the blatant promotion of pot and other drugs. Don't get me wrong what you do is your business but lets face it MySpace is frequented by people of all age groups. I think it shows poor form.



Good luck with the music.

Hey Sean, I probably wouldn't vote for you if you ran for dog catcher, but sure, I'll hit your radio button with my vote.  good luck!!

a) my position on marijuana is a LIBERTARIAN position, not a democratic position. More libertarians are republicans than anything else (including members of the libertarian party itself)

who's being annonymous? i use my real name here and there. and most of the pro pot activists are not annonymous either. some are organizations and not individuals, but that hardly describes annonymity.

c) even tho you are not into any of the acoustic stuff i have on there,,,if you can get by the pro-pot message, "SMOKE THE WEED" is definitely not folk music, or acoustic in any way. and much of my work isn't. these are just some things i wanna have on there now. but point taken,,,maybe i'll put some heavier stuff on there.

lol....yeah,,,that's why when i dealt in "contraband" most of my clients were republicans. the difference between republicans and democrats on this is disclosure, not practices.

kinda like a current scandal....hmmmm

I guess I should have left the political comment out so that my message would have had the intended meaning. While I am far from your political views that was merely a jab (however ineffective) and that was wrong.

I have a problem with people who promote something, in a public forum frequented by children, that even if decriminalized would still be frowned upon in the hands of a teenager. MySpace is used for many things it wasn't intended for.

I’m glad it gives a space for musicians to get there music out there. Your work is good. It's just not something I would listen to.

I don't have problem with weed or really any drug for that matter. What you do to your body is your business. If weed were legal I would be right there with you. I own a few very nice glass ‘art’ pieces myself. My issue is simply the promotion of a substance in a forum where children play. You wouldn't smoke on the street corner of a middle school would you?

no problem, we're cool on that.

i doubt my page is anyone's 1st exposure to marijuana. and aside from the tune, which will be off there in the next week, and was only on there because some friends of mine who played on the track begged me to.

outside of that, the rest of any pot references are only found if someone goes beyond my "topfriends" list, which no one ever does.

your points are well taken and give me something to consider,,,thank you:)

today is the last day for voting,,,if anyone wants to be so kind.

thanks:)
