Fait du jour: 人が多ければ多いほど楽しい == "The more the merrier"
I'm learning how to say "the more X, the more Y", but in the Japanese construct, X is repeated twice, the first time in the weird "if" form, the second followed by "to the degree".
So that sentence literally reads like "if many people, to the point of many, happiness"... I guess? 😕
@tootbrute Google says that last line is Maori 🤔

You would think that since I want to try my hand at directing videos, I would just
1. do it
2. spend my free time finishing songs to make videos for
but in reality that is not what happens. I get home from work and I'm tired, hungry, anxious, and looking for a distraction, not more focus and concentration time.
I'm crushed by this struggle and the pressure to make the recording sound good since I don't want to pay people to be in a video for a song that sucks. 😅
@knxggles sorry to hear that
@hellojed so far as getting people to play an unknown indie music track? More like 0.001%
I spend a lot of time auditioning indie music because I know the good stuff does not "rise to the top" - you have to dig for it.
Getting someone to look at an image is a lot easier. There's no time commitment.
I've never tried to sell anything.
But look at Hollywood marketing budgets - 30% for marketing is not unusual.
Advertising works, and there are more and cheaper means of it now than ever.
@hellojed even the number of people who will play a free track when linked to it - is not 1% in my experience, unless you're Taylor Swift or Justin Bieber.
I just wouldn't bet my career on that number. 😅
@prydt but you're Sleepy
@prydt and now?
@hellojed at least in music, conversion rates are terrible
@hellojed are you basing that 1% on anything?
