What's the opposite of sour grapes??

Post by ncc1701 » Thu May 08, 2008 4:11 pm

Dontcha hate it when something comes along that whuffs you upside the head and makes you open your eyes?After posting my minor whine about getting medieval forwards when I really wanted to write pop/rock, I have now gotten my third library deal ever. For a medieval piece. The library my recent forward went to is the same one that already signed two other (non-medieval) instrumentals of mine. So I figured they might be in the market for the Old World sound and sent them one of my Christmas tunes I got forwards on (to different clients) several months ago. And they accepted it! So, no more whining for me. I accept the niche I have made for myself. Maybe I can take this platform and use it to grow in new musical directions. It worked for Mannheim Steamroller.Thanks for all the support, forum buddies. Kathleen

Hey G, It's been awhile - how you been keeping bro?I'd have to say the opposite of a grape is a litchi /lychee (depending on where you are in the world and how you spell it), it's kind of like a slightly bigger grape, with the evil tough exterior and a crazy seed in the centre....Yeah definately it's evil side!!!

This is great news Kathleen...that whistle is going to lead 'em right to your bank account.You might as well treat it seriously...Shrek 3 was a massive movie, and I'm sure Mike Myers hassome more Scottish Ogre in him yet!

I'd guess Lucille Ball's feet, but that's just a guess. So here's to your sweet feet, Kathleen...let them take you anywhere you wish to go. And WAY TO GO for taking the intiative for building your catalog of signed pieces AND your relationship with this publisher. THAT, my friends, is how it's done.SO happy for you.T(r)ed(Lord, was THAT ever a bad foot joke... )

first of all...CONGRATS!My experience with the whole library/film/television music thing is exactly like yours (except my niche has become urban music). Literally, for as long as I can remember I've been a rock guy and in the last few years specifically a pop rock guy. Thats all I wanted to do was play guitar in a band and write catchy rock songs.Now, I'm having quite a bit of success as an URBAN composer! Never would have thought that in a million years. So take that niche and run with it! All the way to the bank Congratulations again.-Steve
