I’ll Take the Low Road: Our Trip to Scotland

The forecast predicted thunder showers every day. “That car will never make the drive to Scotland,”  (The exhaust is literally held together with an old tin of beans.) But our little car made the 6-hour drive, and every day we spent in Scotland was sunny. In Glasgow, we stayed with my pal Neil, who lives… Continue reading I’ll Take the Low Road: Our Trip to Scotland

Sometimes we even consider calling completely electronic noises “music”. In the case of Xania’s… Continue reading “Highly Recommended”

In my experience, albums with hand-made covers sell 1000% (that’s a real number)… Continue reading How to Make Album Covers
