So? Half of a lot is still a lot . . . that is the point. Let what sink in? Some statistic i already knew? Those stats Haven't stopped a lot of people i am friends with from flying around the world and buying expensive crap. They are good though, you know? Actually have good songs? Any of this sinking in? Big deal if you sell 3 million instead of 6 million. Selling 100,000 instead of 200,000 hurts, but 200,000 record sales doesn't set you up for life financially anyway. THAT is the point, if you have great material you will come out ok.
