Record Union A&R Invite

Record Union Invite

A few years ago, I did a break down on Tunecore Vs Record Union, which has been a very popular article. A lot of people have been curious about Record Union. It seems people are annoyed with Tunecore as I was. At the time Record Union allowed me to give away a code that allowed you to get a free UPC code for you first release. They have since retired that program, but they still allow me to send...

Things I’m Listening To: Vol 1

I haven’t updated this space for a while, largely because I haven’t had the time to pull together solid thematic mixes. So I’m going to get caught up to speed doing it old school: I’m going to post some simple mixes of stuff I’m listening to. I’m a late end Gen X’er, grew up making mix tapes in the 80’s, recording things from the radio that I loved...

You cannot devalue music.

I agree with Quirk’s statements 100%. I feel like anyone interested in being involved in the “music industry” needs to get on this level, otherwise you’re just chasing your own tail. When I hear people complain about discount pricing in online stores or fret about on-demand services such as Rhapsody and Spotify, I rebut them with another rule of mine that makes me sound...

Web Design Tools

Keyboard

I’m still sorting through my bookmarks. Which is good news because that means I get to share more interesting development tools. As I mentioned before, I am not a fan of reinventing the wheel, and if someone made a tool to simply a process I need to do often, I am all about utilizing it. This is a list of web development tools that are difficult for me to categorize broadly, but get heavy...

Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee from Enter the Dragon

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the passing of Bruce Lee. This is certainly a weird experience for me, Bruce Lee was a monument of legendary proportions to me when I was growing up, a serious inspiration to me on so many different levels. I was born just a few short years after his passing, and his influence on me was strongly by way of his influence on my father who introduced me to Bruce...

My Take on the Spotify Debate

This debate about Spotify payouts isn’t new, but it has flared up again due to Thom Yorke and Nigel Godrich pulling some of his catalog and getting vocal about it. I want to respond to some of the critics and frame the information and sticky points because I don’t think some of the criticism is fair or viewed from the correct perspective. I was greeted with this the other day, with...

Eight Quick Typography Tools

Picksum Ipsum

Still organizing my bookmarks and sharing some of my various design tools. I like having a small arsenal of quick builders to save time, since I do 95% of my work in Notepad++. To be fair, half of these are filler text generators, but I seem to have a need for those quite often. So here is my small list of typography tools to help speed up web development. Font Squirrel Webfont Generator One of...

Five Tools To Make Quick Backgrounds

Ultimate CSS Gradient Generator

I’m organizing my bookmarks, and realizing I have a lot of good tools I should share around. This is a list of five tools to make quick backgrounds I use quite often in CSS development that save me a lot of time. I find myself in a situation where I am often building templates for one-time uses and need to add a little bit of variety instance to instance, so need tools to help get that job...
