GarageBand, Logic Could Be the Production Side of Apple Music

GarageBand, Logic Could Be the Production Side of Apple Music – Create Digital Music

GarageBand could be the creation tool to populate music on Connect. Export to Connect, for Apple Music songs or exclusives for your social network — maybe both? Seems a no-brainer, actually. For now, the GarageBand page shows only SoundCloud export, but, sorry SoundCloud, Apple may be coming for you.

This is about to get really interesting.

Restrung

On Tuesday, I tuned and restrung my guitar. When you pick up your axe for the first time in awhile, a certain inspiration strikes.

This is the result of that.

Download it:

Remix it:

Is it safe to go home now?

To crowdfund or not to crowdfund?

Well, this certainly opened up a can of worms.

I wondered:

@amandapalmer herself retweeted this, which then lead to quite a few disagreeing replies including one from from Filter (yes, that Filter):

Here’s the thing. My adversity to crowdfunding is when artists stoop down to almost “begging” levels to fund a record/tour/pay their rent/etc for exorbitant amounts of money. It’s not that I’m old fashioned and against the idea – after all, anyone who is reading this knows I’m quite “post-label” myself, it’s just that I’m against the reckless desperation some bands (and brands) exhibit in their campaigns: posting just how far off they are from their goal constantly and doing nothing more than just that – posting about it.

I’ve supported campaigns – I’m not that big of a curmudgeon. Recently, my friends in Haujobb just did a successful tour funding campaign and I eagerly await my copy of their new album!

How do you feel? Is crowdfunding a “means to an end” or boisterous begging?

Nerd Parade: 2015

Nerd Parade | We’re at work

There will be a new Nerd Parade album this year: A follow-up to Daylight Saving Time. Randy Garcia, Rich Wilson and John Jacobus are already involved. Other familiar nerds will return. New nerds will be introduced.

That’s all I can say right now.
