Here in 2014...

Okay, I started off the new year by accidentally opening a new "band member profile" for myself! How do I delete that one? Just one of the many things about this system that I find confusing--probably because I don't spend enough time here.

Among other happenings, I've got a new laptop at long last; and now am busy uploading my old song and photo collections, together with music and photo editing software in compatibility mode. In addition, I'm in the market for portable recording devices (think Zzounds H-4 Zoom) that are better in sound quality than the average digital audio recorder. Overall, I just need to make more money with my online businesses (for example, see The LithicLair: http://www.cafepress.com/lithiclair ). I've also been neglecting a lot of my online activities (including this one), and need to do more musical networking. But first of all...how do I get rid of this new profile I accidentally spawned without meaning to?? I don't need TWO ReverbNation profiles!!

Okay, I Finally Did It...a Crowdfunding Campaign!

Well, the very idea of crowdfunding for a recording project scares the bejeebers out of me; but I finally got sick of being stuck in a rut, with no funds for recording. So, here is a link to my brand-new Gofundme campaign for the new CD: http://www.gofundme.com/1xbp40 . Hope I'm allowed to post this here! So far, no massive donations; but what the heck, I just put the thing out there yesterday! So, if you like the uploads I've got here so far, and would like to see them released with full instrumentation, check out the campaign at the link above, and see if you can toss a buck or two into this online guitar case. Thanks in advance, everyone! :)

Merch Shop for LairMistress

Okay, so I started creating a new merch store at this profile. But I actually have a fairly extensive merch shop at Cafepress, at this link: http://www.cafepress.com/laircraft/6812102 . I've also got original-design stickers and other paper paraphernalia at another Cafepress shop, known as The Lair of Cards: http://www.cafepress.com/cardlair . They've come out pretty nice, if I may say so myself. Now, if I can figure out where else one might upload mp3 files...
