Little Fish in a Digital Sea" - and my "first" widget
8/15/2008 8:48:09 AM
A widget for those without iTunes, where you can check out my "little fish (CD)" swimming lonely in a vast "Digital Sea"
BUT: will it work at AD? (I've never had a widget work here. Not fair as they work fine at many free web sites. Why not here where we pay handsomely. I wonder why we stay at AD. They offer not much.
Well did my "widget" work? Most of you here know what a widget is, but I was surprised not everybody. My sister works every day with computers at work but didn't know what a widget was.
I hope this thing posts at CTI, I've tried these things at AD (AuthorsDen.com for the few writers who aren't registerd there) and they never work for me there.
PAYPLAY or is it PayPlay? Anyway that's where this "widget" will take you. To my CD page where you can get one track FREE and download others for .88 cents instead of iTunes .99
iTunes is probably better to me, but a lot of people don't have or want Apple's software (it's pretty big in terms of megabytes)
So here is a WEB page that uses standard browsers where you can check out my:
"LITTLE FISH IN A BIG DIGITAL SEA" - Well, I guess that's a first step to get my CDs (my fish) out into the "Digital Stream" Nobody can "catch them" if you don't.
Which leads me to remind anyone interested that although I am spending a lot of time (with my slow connection out here in the sticks of Florida) on the internet, the main GAME PLAN is this:
I have 2 more CDs planned to release this way, then I hope to go further but will not be able to record like this anymore. Tentatively I will sell my house in Florida and may move to California by 2010. All so that I may play in a jazz club where there will be wealthy people who not only appreciate it but can tip handsomely. You just can't even play out if your broke. It doesn't work in today's world. Not to mention, no real clubs around here.
On July 19-20 I completed by last full recording session at a small studio in Ocala city in Florida for some new piano music that will be included on an UPDATE of my 2005 CD: IN MEMORY ONLY.
Hopefully this will be put through the publishing system by September.
I'll announce it of course. Luckily the bulk of this music has already been recorded. but I was happy that the recent session fulfilled a strange long-standing tradition I've had of recording in JULY:
Last year on those very dates I recorded my "SEABREEZE piano solos" that are on AUGUST OCEAN OVERTURE. That was my last pro session until now. I do good in April and July for some reason.
This new piano piece is called:
"My Sea of Bbminor Blues" I had over a half dozen takes on this theme and several good for publishing.
I also did a 7' minute improvisation with piano/synthesizer on a tune I wrote in an "old Appalachian Mountain music" style called: "The Old Apple Tree" I'm not sure I can fit it on the CD, we'll see.
Sure is a pastoral and restive sound....
I'll keep you posted: "from the wilds of Florida" - michael guy
