Current mood: artistic ASCAP indicated that professionals in their music association thought that I deserved credit for perfomances in San Francisco and Burlingame. I met a couple of people that took note of my appearance: I met Robert Britt in Novato in 1981 and Robert Britt is a bicycle racer from the bay area http://www.usacycling.org/results/index.php?compid=116501 I met Mark Perry http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Perry_%28musician%29 and he sounded exactly like Eddie Van Halen to me and everyone else who lives in the apartment building where I live now. The bay area is so far from here that I can't clearly place who everyone is. (People like to lie about things like that and think up imaginative aliases) Reading Federal Copyright Law I see that the primary concern would be redistribution. I'm not making a cent and I would like to meet a band interested in adding my guitar sound to theirs but, I apparently have enough studio sound already and have been told not to worry about copyright by the bands I uploaded mp3's of. In Time Magazine, Bruce Springsteen said it's unusual hardship to write one's own songs and it's done due to an inability to read.
