Secondly, I hate the whole "send in the demo, wait around with fingers crossed, hope someone gives a shit" routine. Its not that im against physical formats, I just think that artists tend to rely on them too much, as some sort of strange vindication. I would love to have records out for people to buy, but I feel the demo submission process can be a bit demeaning. Don't get me wrong, independent labels are the saviours of music, I just think that artists shouldn't rely so much on their acceptance. Lastly, I love the internet. With sites like the FMA its a great way to not only get your music out there, but also to get radio play on WFMU (best station ever [editor note: I wholeheartedly do not disagree with this.]), and connect with other artists.
