    Same thing - if I start a thread called, "Please list the 5 living things you love the most," and then a week and 100 posts later change the title to "Please list the 5 things you'd murder if you could get away with it," that wouldn't be re-writing history? Hmmmm....

    • No, but that would be pretty funny.

      • So, when I post on Facebook about something stupid... I tend to get a ton of comments. When I post a song... crickets. I was thinking of posting inane dumb stuff, building up the comments, then hitting them with an advertisement to buy my album. Similar to the above... thoughts?

          As a professional digital marketer, I'd say that's genius. You may lose friends, but then...were they really friends?

                    I think we're all in need of an open anarchic thread to dispense with the weight of songwriting disciplines at the end of a hard prosodic day...

                      • So I've been thinking about trying something different... wondering if anyone here has gone down this road? While I have friends who are great drummers, the process of getting them to record on my stuff is really time consuming and potentially expensive. For my album, we recorded the drums for 'free', but it took two entire days between set-up, getting sounds, recording, etc... and I'm sure we could have gotten 'better' sounds had we done it in a real studio ($$). We recorded in a spare bedroom. Of course, I ended up spending money in terms of a thank-you gift for the drummer and the guy who owned the house we used... (case of nice beer and a nice bottle of whiskey). That, plus two days of time adds up...

                        Anyone have experience with hiring an on-line drummer... someone who specializes in recording drums to your specifications and sending you finalized tracks? I've been looking into it and seeing prices anywhere from $50/song to $250/song... I'm sure this is a case where you get what you pay for, but I'm betting you could get highly satisfactory results for somewhere in teh $100/song range.

                        Anyone?

                          I've been spending a lot of time re-posting all the articles I wrote on dog training and canine behavior for PsychologyToday.com (100+ posts over 4 years) before they pulled the plug and deleted them all. I'm up to #75.

                          It's a pain in the ass because I'm using Blogger and if I don't post things just right (and I don't know what the rules are), I have to go back and re-do them. The main things are a) I don't have time to re-do all the embedded links so they open in a new window, and b) when I make changes, the software decides to put huge gaps between paragraphs and I have to go back and re-format the whole damn thing.

                          The other thing I've been working on is redesigning my dog training website, using Wix, so that it can be viewed on mobile devices. My old server (still creaking along) was Network Solutions who, for some reason, haven't upgraded to HTML5. The new site will be easier to navigate, have animated graphics and be mobile-device friendly. But it's a lot of work...

                          I keep meaning to re-string my guitar, which in the back of my mind I think will motivate me to write something. There's an actual coating of dust on it!
                          “Good Vibrations” was probably a good record but who's to know? You had to play it about 90 bloody times to even hear what they were singing about. What’s next? Rock opera? —Pete Townshend, Melody Maker Interview, 1966.
