New Members check-in

We'll try to supply valet service, complimentary champagne and a polite, professional and positive introduction to you. (heh, then it's gloves off)

You, in turn, can tell us who's your daddy and what does he do.

I'm curious to know what brought you to Audiopolis?

Cheers... :beer:


Just a random web search for "top sites for musicians to upload their music," or something to that effect. Of course, it was probably a pretty outdated list. :P

I am gracefully bowing out of the music business. I started my professional career at 16 playing bass gigs. I could read music so I got a lot of union gigs back then. I then got a full scholarship to play upright bass at the College Conservatory of Music. I graduated in 1991. I taught private lessons and did some more gigging. Had the pleasure to do three separate DOD tours, so I did get to see the world a few times over, granted with heavy beer goggles on. In 2006 I gracefully bowed out of the gig scene. I realized it was never going to get better.

In 2000, I recorded my own CD that I wrote and arranged and tried to find a singer but no one would do it, so I grunted out the tunes. My Mom Loved the CD ! I recorded a second CD called One Eyed Jimmy Jive in 2006, My Mom hated it ! I thought I was on to something but after a year of pushing it on the internet and two CD sales I decided that was a bad career move. So I open up a audio mastering website. Since I didn't know what the hell I was doing, I decided to give free samples. If the customer liked it they could buy it, if they didn't like it, no harm was done. This was a way to practice and get paid at the same time. A good friend of mine programmed the site to my specifications and it still runs beautifully. I ended up getting pretty good at it with lots of satisfied customers but have found myself in the last year just pushing buttons and not feeling the passion anymore. I have two other engineers on the site that still enjoy it so I will keep it alive as long as I can for them.

In the interim, I tried to start a session musician site that flopped pretty much out of the gate. Not that it was a bad idea but I made a bunch of mistakes in the beginning that I could never recover from. I would have needed much more capital and time to pull off a complex website like that.

So about two years ago I saw a commercial for a website called sharebuilder where a person could incrementally buy stock. I thought that was a cool idea. I was hooked instantly. I have devoured every book I can on stock investing. I have learned as much as possible on accounting techniques. I order and read company annual reports everyday and actually get a cheap thrill from it. :eek: My Dad, 76, who is still a practicing attorney has been entrusting me to invest his money. After 44 years, my Dad's interest and mine have overlapped. I find myself thinking less and less about music and more and more about investing. My heroes have gone from Lennon & McCartney to Buffet and Munger.

God Bless, one and all :beer:

If I'm (undoubtedly) correct in assuming you are attempting to quote here Tiny Tim from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, then I feel obliged to inform you that the correct phrase is "God bless us, every one!"

You can take comfort that you're not the first nor only 'person' to make this mistake, so don't let it spoil your day.

(tiptoes in ... middle of the night... waves.. wishes all well. Figures "if this isn't the right place for me, it's just as easy to duck right back out" shrugs... hopes ... whispers "keep the rock a rollin'" then simply waits as she hoists the flag and sees who either salutes it, or throws a tomato at it... or worse)

hiya :thumb:

great job on this Jaymz!

p.s. prayers for Freddy... he's just gotten out of ICU, pneumonia sucks.

p.p.s. kiddo turned 18 last Feb, and last Dec played her professional debut on a six foot grand piano to over 300 families at an agency packed Christmas party at our Veterans Memorial Building to the surprised delight of all her therapists. Such a trouper, she played "Stars and Stripes Forever" solo.. for appreciation to our Vets and service folks, a duet with me that we never could find the name of .. since it was a demo song on a cheap walmart keyboard... and a rousing duet of Jingle Bells. She made one mistake in her solo, but never stopped. Grampa is still beaming with pride, I do as well.

Howdy Jukes. Sorry no tomatoes...need'em for the chili.
As I returned across the lands I'd known
I recognized the fields where I'd once played
I had to stop in my tracks for fear
