So, now, where does that leave me? What can I learn? Since 18, I've been careful about making friends - any friends. Raised to believe there are few to trust and fewer to depend on, I'm not the kind of person you want in your inner-circle because I'm sure to... Continue reading

My brother died yesterday. Inosculation is a natural phenomenon in which trunks, branches or roots of two trees grow together. It is biologically very similar to grafting. Once the cambium of two trees touches, they self-graft and grow together. Aspen trees grow in stands where the roots are shared. No... Continue reading

Wild Cherry sings “Play that Funky Music (White boy)" or what I should be saying to my wife when her father dies by Tomas Omar The death of your father changes you, I guess. Just not me - or maybe I'm just dead and I don't know it. I knew... Continue reading

May I die before what's mine is yours @Sixty eight Galleri Valkendorfsgade 11, 1151 København My personal reflection on the work. The longing between family members who've separated - as in the Irish expatriation in 1800's or the flight from war in Syria this year - the deep history stored... Continue reading

@Nik, Thanks for the comment. Not sure of the original source of eCPM - didn't realize that Google may have invented the term. But given its prolificacy online, I'm stunned that the 5 most relevant topics online for the search term is tied online to AdSense.
Kevin, To use as a replacement for studio time or a client software package? Assuming you can track the sale of the music - its interesting. However, I've said elsewhere on the blog - selling music in the digital world where incremental distribution costs are almost zero tends to force the price toward zero. I think SaaS music production package works better as a license (using as a unit of measure songs produced maybe or just a straight monthly, annual or one-time fee).
I'm 46 and I live in Greensboro, NC. I started running in my hightop converse basketball shoes in 1980 when I was 18 and a freshman in college - mostly because I thought I wanted to look good for girls. Now, after 4 kids; 3 startup companies; Atlanta, Tampa, Boston and NC; I know I do it to keep my sanity. I've never really taken a break - maybe one month at most. I went for a run the morning my first son was born (after being up for more than 24 hours); the morning my first company was sold (again, after being up for more than 48 hours) and the morning of my first (and, hopefully, only) divorce (again, after being up for more than a week). When I was younger, I was never interested in racing, I liked the "aloneness" but now that I'm older I like to participate in races - 10K, half and full marathons - because it re-enforces for me that I'm part of a bigger group.
