I buy entirely too much through Amazon,
but they're the biggest and best
online retail store around. I love that
my music is available there.
The iPod and its software app, iTunes, is one
of the greatest inventions ever, in my book.
I'm still using several of them. But, of course,
Apple has to abandon all its good stuff
in the name of progress.
I have been rather amazed at this music service.
They have nearly everything I've ever searched for
and you can listen for free, if you can suffer
through the ads. They don't pay artists what
they're worth though.
These days after cancer, my writing well has seemingly
gone dry, though there is still a lot to be inspired about.
It’s a puzzle to me. But I have a burgeoning collection
of short piano pieces I call “Miniatures” which
I put on SoundCloud, but they won’t be “published.”
It might be that my songwriting is on hold right now, or
maybe reserved for heaven. Interestingly, I frequently
chart in the Top Ten on ReverbNation’s Folk chart for
St. Petersburg, even though I don’t perform anywhere.
The highest position I've reached is #2 on June 19, 2020.
I have a Facebook friend, Rebecca Zapen, whom I have
never met in real life. She's at the #1 spot most of the time.
I found out that CD Baby, who sold my stuff
and distributed it, closed down their store.
Unbeknownst to me, they put my albums on YouTube.
I have no idea how long they have been there;
it may have been years. I also don’t know if I get paid
something for someone listening there,
but you’re certainly welcome to.
I don't have a lot of music on this platform,
but here it is anyhow. I won't bother with
the Myspace page, mainly because I don't
even know if it still exists. Come to think of it,
if AOL does, maybe it does.
