Reminder

It’s still my goal to make my living with music, and not trying isn’t going to get it done. 

Quick Update

I’m uploading Hope to Distrokid as I type this; Love Songs and Lullabies will be next.

To Contest or Not To Contest - Again

You might remember that I wrote a new song every week for a full year in 2008; check my discography. Doing it for a few weeks sounds fairly easy.

To Contest or Not To Contest

She apparently went through a number of guesses before saying that whoever it was should go on The Voice and get famous.

Empathy for the Other Side?

There will always be human beings who seek to exploit or exclude others.

Inspiration

99% perspiration, 1% inspiration.

*cough cough*

I wound up going to se a dr and was diagnosed with bronchitis. 

Vacation

I just did something I haven’t done in…well, I can’t remember the last time. I took two weeks’ vacation.

Stuff

Consider a slow, bluesy version of AC/DC’s “Whole Lotta Rosie.”

Just Another Year. Kinda.

I don’t care much about a new year, aside from the fact that I’ll be turning 50 in August. 

Motivation

Not only am I not driven to make boatloads of cash, I never have been. I’ll give you an example from my childhood.

Good Medicine

I’m consistently in a better when when I make music.

Doing Things You Don't Want To Do

No one likes doing things they don’t want to do, but doing them anyway is part of life. 

Love Songs & Lullabies - Done

In short, Rae has access to all her songs. The rest of you won’t until I decide where to put them.  :)

Love Songs & Lullabies

I’m just about finished with Love Songs & Lullabies. 

Not The Voice

It’s safe to say that I will not be auditioning for The Voice.

The Voice

A friend of mine (ok, his wife, really…she’s still a friend, but I’m much closer to him) suggested I audition for The Voice.

Record Your Practice Sessions

. . . some people have a better innate sense of rhythm than others, but I promise yours isn’t as good as you think. 

Words for Monday

I listened to a lot of podcasts, and still do, but music has insinuated itself back into my life. She can be a pushy bitch.

A Different Perspective

And maybe - just maybe - there has been a vindictive woman or two in history who has cried “rape!” as a way of getting back at someone.

Practice With Limited Time.

The point here is to use whatever time you have, however much (or little) it may be, and do so consistently. 

Success. What makes it?

Yes, I’ve wanted to make a living a this for as long as I can remember, but not at the expense of how I want to do it.

Plans for the Near Future

My current project - a batch of songs my wife requested to help her sleep at night - is almost done. 

Wood vs Carbon Fiber

"Never fall in love with your sword."

That's What I Think (But I Could Be Wrong)

My podcast, That’s What I Think (But I Could Be Wrong) has officially launched.
