Ever since I've heard about Audiokite's review service, I've been taking to get a song reviewed and see if I have what it takes to stand in the anonymous onslaught of reviewers from around the US. I use a coupon that I got from passive promotions and invested in a hundred and fifty reviews in the electronic department. In hindsight, I guess I could have use generic reviews, as it would have given me a better idea of what kind of people are out there in the general category. But this category was concentrated to the electronic genre, so it left me with the question of whether or not these people were expecting instrumentals. Either way, the results were quite surprising.
the reason I like this service more than other services is because they give you so many different kinds of data to observe. It's not just a like or not like. the information that you need is very detailed, and because it's anonymous, I feel that people are more inclined to be honest about their feelings toward the music.
that being said, you have to keep in mind that you can't please everyone, and no two people think alike.
it's amazing how 1 review can say the exact opposite of another, and yet both are listening to the same song.
whether you reviews come out to be amazingly praiseworthy, or unbearably brutal, you're getting honest feedback. if you want to get a better idea of what I mean, go ahead and click this link and check out the status that I got back from my report. And, while you're at it, I'd like to hear what you thought of Love You Much. I'm always open to hear the opinions of people who read my blog.
all in all, I'm very satisfied with my service, & I will definitely use Audiokite again and recommend it to my friends.

HAHA! This just goes to show how effective it is to try to legislate morality from Capital Hill. So, I guess my family will stop giving me flack about homeschooling my kids due to conscientious objection. Why did I Laugh? Because it's no longer an option to be a lazy Christian Parent in USA. Seriously though, DON'T Complain if you're NOT ACTUALLY GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT!!!
Look at what's being done here. Somebody in the highly obnoxious Satanic/Anti-Christian camp put up the money to have these coloring books made. Then they have taken the time to get people to help get them distributed, and even contacted the local news. meanwhile, a bunch of frumpy faced Christians are going to sit on their couches, and continue to do what they've always done, and get no real change in Florida. LAZY CHRISTIANS, you're being outmatched.
It's time to fight the war! PRAY! Pull you're children OUT of these public Schools (or use online public schooling). TEACH YOUR CHILDREN DIRECTLY!! Don't just send them to Sunday School/Youth Group. IT'S YOUR JOB to teach your kids. NOT the School, NOT the youth Pastor. NOT the government. YOURS!

Nightmares are the worst! For me, it turns out that it's more of a chemical thing, than a spiritual one, but there are times when you can barely tell the difference. Sometime when I wake up, it feels like I'm still trapped within a dream. But last night, I learned a very simple trick to stopping bad dreams from ruining my night. I'll bet it'll work for you too.
The next time you fall asleep and have a bad dream, try out this simple trick. It'll change your life...and someone else's :-)

Sometimes as an independent artist it's easy to fall into the trap of helplessness and hopelessness in the face of conglomerate giants like Apple. I remember a few years ago when I decided to take all of my music off of Grooveshark because they weren't paying royalties to artists for streams. I also made a similar move with my last release of the Better Off EP, limiting where the album could be downloaded because of unfair streams.
For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, you can click here to read about the groove shark controversies, and you can use this link to get a better idea of what I'm talking about for other websites. Please don't misunderstand what I'm saying though. I have no problem allowing my fans and curious listeners to stream songs for free. In fact that's one of the reasons I allow my music on Soundcloud and YouTube. I want people to be able to listen to songs and decide whether or not they like it. I want people to engage with me freely without having to pay all the time. But at the same time, I'm not okay with corporations making money off the work that I do without giving me a cut. I think that's only fair.
Almost every business online that charges you for streaming, or makes you listen to ads after a few songs, is making money from the fees you have to pay in order to get the Internet. That means that the $40 - $200 internet bill you pay monthly also goes into the pockets of the likes of Pandora, YouTube, Spotify, and other businesses who allow you to stream music for free...and that's okay, because these are also businesses who pay the fair amount for streams to artists for their work.
Now enter Apple.
You may have heard that they recently announced that they were launching a new streaming network. I suspect that it's a move to try to keep up with the title service that just came out not too long ago. Either way, there was some controversy about it as Taylor Swift hold her album from the new Apple service. In order to find out why, you're going to want to read her blog on it. I definitely suggest that you read her blog first and make your own judgement, before reading any news articles which seem to want to paint her in a bad light.
As for me, I just want to salute Taytay for standing up for the little guys in this issue.
Today marks my 5th iTunes release, with the re-release of The Better Off EP, my first professional muical work. when I was younger, I always wanted to be a singer. It looks like I actually got to live that dream out.
if you want any of these works, tell the world how great it is by leaving a comment in iTunes. I would really appreciate it :-)
