I registered my debut solo record, "Man's Inhumanity to Me," with Tunecore.com yesterday morning. It was easy and pretty cheap. The record will be available for download a streaming on all these services including iTunes, Amazon, and Spotify. Look for it on October 8th.
Naturally, what I really bought myself was the license to daydream about making it big. I guess it's a little better than buying lottery tickets. Doing stuff like this does not seem to hurt the art I wind up producing. I get over being discouraged pretty easy and just wind up soldiering on.
I told Insect Sex Act guitarist and our record's producer, Brett Bradford, about how easy and cheap it was to register "Man's Inhumanity to Me" with Tunecore.com. I'm volunteering to test out the service to see if we want to use it for our CD.
I'm also in the process of registering the tracks on the record with BMI. Lately I've had a fantasy about walking into a strip club with my credit card and always saying "yes" to whatever anyone asks me. "Would you like a drink?" "Yes!" "Would you like another Diet Coke?" "Yes!" "...and another?" "Yes!" "Would you like some company?" "Yes!" "Do you want a table dance?" "Yes!" "Would you like another table dance?" "Yes!"
The object would be to see how long it would take for me to run up a massive charge on my credit card and to see how big I would let it get before I fled the scene. Apparently there's suckers with money to burn who pretty much do just that on a regular basis. I would keep a tab on how long I had to keep going and how much money I had to spend before a dancer offered to go home with me...for a price.
I tried to have a similar mindset about not saying "no" with this Tunecore when they kept offering me services. I got as far as registering with BMI, but BMI doesn't even charge to register songs with them, so I came out of it okay. If any of these outlets offer to promote "Man's Inhumanity to Me" for a price, I'm not going for it. I rather have the thing die on the vine than start shelling out money for such thing
