My rankings have been frozen. It appears the money I spent with Reverbnation to promote my page and music actually worked and that made them mad. They suspect me of having people I know click on my songs all day long to up my ranking. Nobody likes me personally enough to do that, not even my family! I have appealed this insanity but it doesn't really matter. I'll still post here for a while but I'm done buying their promotional services. They punish you if it works!
Almost all songwriters show their politics through their music in some form or another. Even when their songs are completely apolitical, they say something about the artists politics. I can be far more blunt than that. I'll tell you straight away how I look at the world. In the 2012 Presidential Campaign, Mitt Romney was heavily criticized for his 47% comment. I don't agree with Romney. I see his 47% and raise him 53%! Honestly, I'm in the minority. I love what I do and am fortunate to have a career that includes writing and producing music, film & video. Still, I would prefer not to have to work and to have the government send me a check every month. I can't trust anyone that says otherwise. To be sure, I would still make music, film & videos but I wouldn't do anything but what I wanted to do and would be happy to be supported by the government. The problem for most of us is that the government won't pay enough. We live in a time where virtually anyone can claim a disability and get paid not to work. You just have to be willing to accept poverty. I can't. I want more than what they will pay me to do nothing. That makes me a bad guy to a lot of people. Anyone who wants more is now defined as greedy. I am a proud capitalist and I just created a website that will officially launch soon called Music 4 A Living. It's for people like me who know that music is a valuable service that adds value to people's lives and want to EARN money from their music. I will be providing links when the site is live and, if you can stand to on a site owned by a capitalist pig, I'd love for you to check it out.
I opened this account years ago and never used it. I never uploaded anything and actually forgot I ever opened it. About a month or so ago, a friend was getting set to release his first CD and started promoted it using online resources, one of them being Reverbnation. I visited the site to give him some likes and views and it asked me to login. I started to open an account but got a message that there was already one associated with my email account. I gave it a shot with a password and was in. Since then I have begun to upload some songs and video and check out some opportunities. I'm impressed and sorry I neglected this site for so long.
