7 MONTHS: amount of time since Cosmote Greece started running commercial campaign using my song
4 MONTHS: amount of time they were in breach of contract without paying me / giving runaround / generally ignoring emails
72 HOURS: amount of time between when I started posting about it on Twitter and Facebook and when they wired me payment in full.
in other words:
IF PEOPLE STEAL YOUR ART, MAKE NOISE ABOUT IT. IT WORKS!

today I heard ari fleischer say that college educated Americans and a liberal press don't understand why "heartland" Americans would vote the way they did, and my little brain-dots connected immediately to the anti-Chavez article that went viral this weekend by Andres Miguel Rondon in which he reminds those who oppose a populist not to forget who the enemy is: themselves, easily painted by a corrupt administration as pompous elites, not real patriots, and then the dots connec...ted further to chief strategist (now national security council member) steve bannon telling the press yesterday to "be quiet and listen for awhile" and that they're the "opposition party" which, combined with fleischer's statements, is code for "a critical press / educated public represents accountability, therefore a critical press / educated public is the enemy," and finally the dots connected back to Rondon warning of the Venezuelan example: you're going to think you should be screaming about the insanity / blatant factual errors / lies, but that will only divide you further and strengthen the populist regime. with all this in mind, it seems to me the most important thing to do today is speak directly to the people in your lives on "the other side" of this looking glass, reinforce those bonds between you (familial in many cases) rather than diminish them, and be patient about what is actually true (science, statistics, historical events) but be INSISTANT.
