Then there are those who never even give a thought to the business realities of putting out some of these soundtracks. They are happy to point out flaws, bitch about what "should" have been on the release but wasn't, or make demands on what they'd like to see next. Some just seem totally disconnected from reality, demanding that some label is put in all the cash and man hours to create a release only twelve people will buy.

My response would be, sure, you put up all the cash and we'll do it. smile

Damned straight. Then we'd hear crickets. Well...probably not. wink

It’s all about dopamine.
Whether it’s the announcement of the product or actually getting it in the mail there is a rush of dopamine. The same hormone that makes people think that they are having a divine experience during worship or devouring a slice of double chocolate cake. As soon as the experience is over there is a drive to experience it again. It causes collectors to amass huge collections. It has nothing to do with not appreciating the work that went into the making the CD or even a the worthiness of the next recording that is request. It’s all about the quest for the next hit of dopamine.
As much as we would like think that man is some kind of divine creature we are still animals that respond to stimulus.

I would like to add that, in most normal everyday lives, the "we need" mindset of pursuing our creature comforts is the primary factor in helping to separate us from our money.
