“Selling out” is the compromising of integrity, morality, or principles in exchange for money or “success” (however defined). It is commonly associated with attempts to tailor material to a mainstream audience. Any artist who expands their creative path to encompass a wider audience, as opposed to continuing in the genre and venues of their initial success, may be disdainfully labeled by disapproving fans as a sellout. Sometimes a sellout is seen as a person that is disloyal to a group to which he or she belongs in order to gain money or become “successful”. Selling out is often seen as gaining success at the cost of credibility.
Clearly that’s not what FL did…..The site would have to be “successful”. One thing that really does trouble me though, is seeing a Five Ounces link at the bottom of the page…..If any of you can remember back that far.
@g….No, I think that we’re just kind of…..not really visiting the site much any more.
