    Journey Into K-Pop

    Journey Into K-Pop

    K-Pop Recently, a friend I’ve grown up with since middle school, specifically 7th grade, had me listen to the music genre. Growing up her and I shared music all the time being it was a big part of our lives. She liked the same music as I and when she adapted to something else, she’d share it with me. I’d give the artist a listen and then I’d tell her if I liked it or not. Nine times out of ten I would like it.

    Should I Copyright My Song?

    Should I Copyright My Song?

    Should you copyright your song or use a third party protection service? According to the U.S. Copyright Office, copyright protection concerns original works fixed in any tangible medium of expression, now known or later developed, from which they can be perceived, reproduced or otherwise communicated either directed or with the aid of a machine or device. In other words, if you write a song it qualifies for copyright. In fact, under U.S. Copyright Law, getting a copyright on your song is automatic and the process starts with the date of creation. Whether you record, write down or put it on a CD you have an automatic copyright. Now that you have a copyright on your song, should your register it with the U.S. Library of Congress?

    Another Jeff Tweedy Story: A soundtrack to joy and grief

    Another Jeff Tweedy Story: A soundtrack to joy and grief

    I will admit, I am an unabashed Jeff Tweedy fan. His two 2018 releases, WARM and WARMER touched on themes ubiquitous within us all. With songs about American regret and the search for meaning in an increasingly chaotic world, they caught the feeling of the times. Tweedy continues to elucidate our journey into the unknown with his latest release, Love Is King.

    Falling down the Kpop rabbit hole

    Falling down the Kpop rabbit hole

    November of 2015 was a month I remember well. It was around the time I discovered a genre of music that would prove to be a life line. Some might say that statement is a strong claim to make. Those people may be right because I do have a heart for theatrics but, this time I don’t believe its a strong enough statement.

    Is it worth learning an instrument?

    Is it worth learning an instrument?

    Could you imagine your life without music? Probably not, because music is very strongly anchored in our existence. But very few people have the privilege of being able to actually make music themselves. Studies show that 20% of children learn an instrument and 70% of adults wish they had learned one. The good news however: it is never too late to learn an instrument. And here are the best reasons why everyone should learn an instrument at any age:

    Who You Are To Me || Chapter 8

    Gary played with the little wrapped box in his pocket as they pulled into the parking lot at the stables. The smell of nature met their noses as they stepped out of the car.
