Seminal Ideas, and the Bubble Percolator Clubs
by Pat Darnell and the Herd
Their colossal club was a gigantic hit, an idea whose time had come, but it was a financial flop.
Because it was not fueled on alcohol... rather fueled on Ecstasy, and the drug dealers were making all the money. It is a movie with a message to market share seeking business proprietors everywhere. The club owners then gave security coats to the drug dealers... it worked out. But still the money was not being spent in the club, rather being spent on more drugs, cars, houses, businesses, alimony's and, worst of all, on guns.
Paths of excess and opulence leads to wisdom, as stated by a long dead and famous poet, states implicit reason for destruction of human endeavors, institutions, and ideas. What else could a movie say than that?

Tagline: The unbelievably true story of one man, one movement, the music and madness that was Manchester.
Plot: In 1976, Tony Wilson sets up Factory Records and brings Manchester's music to the world...
Manchester 1976: Cambridge educated Tony Wilson, Granada TV presenter, is at a Sex Pistols gig. Totally inspired by this pivotal moment in music history, he and his friends set up a record label, Factory Records, signing first Joy Division (who go on to become New Order) then James and the Happy Mondays, who all become seminal artists of their time. What ensues is a tale of music, sex, drugs, larger-than-life characters, and the birth of one of the most famous dance clubs in the world, The Hacienda - a mecca for clubbers as famous as the likes of Studio 54. Graphically depicting the music and dance heritage of Manchester from the late 70's to the early 90's, this comedy documents the vibrancy that made Mad-chester the place in the world that you would most like to be. (2008: Wilson To Be Remembered At 24-hour Conversation Bash 24 March 2008 8:05 AM, PDT | From wenn.com | See recent WENN news)Some person familiar with music business models really should consider tracking the events of several standout "mile marker" entertainment successes. With this empirical information from the last fifty years of the 20th century, could not a reliable time line be drafted to show the actual path of an idea from a Cambridge educated boy to the demise of the idea.
Using an old metaphor from Transcendental Meditationalist's spiels; ...a bubble begins at the bottom of the deepest ocean, at the floor. This bubble has a size of microns, as it is pressed by immeasurable pressure of the dense sea water. As the bubble moves upward it grows larger and larger as pressure becomes less and less. Our bubble makes it to the surface of the ocean at its largest size before releasing its gases to the air. Ideas have this very same path, as described by many..
Size is indirectly related to outside pressures... no? Also, Size is proportionate to the measure of outside pressures, as the "idea bubble" moves through time. Idea Bubbles, as metaphor of music business, a song has a life cycle that could be better supported by "outside influx" so that there is less pressure over all. The fear is that there is no residue once the bubble releases all it has to the air above. What better, therefore, it can be when the idea pays its way along its path to ambiguity?
