I am not really sure if vine is a good platform for this, but I decided to give it a shot. My manager, who is a friend of mine who appointed himself to be my manager is talking about making short videos of my performances to tease other stuff on the Net. It is something which I never really thought about, but he decided to buy vine followers at buyvinefame dot com. I never even heard of the idea, but he did this on his own and it seems to have some merit. That is if you assume we can manage to make interesting videos which will persuade the viewers to click on the link and go to the Soundcloud site or my Facebook page. In fact I am making a good little bit of money off downloads and off donations from people who download my free shows. I am on the web and you can go to the Internet Archive and download my live shows from their live music archive.

Of course I am like one of a thousand and one acts that post their music on the Internet Archive (that is at Archive dot org by the way). It is like you are just one name within a huge list of different acts, most of them are small bands who perform at bars and at campgrounds. That is what I have been doing this summer. I have been to about sixteen campground shows in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and a couple other states. I decided that this is a good place to connect with people who are really serious about music and who in turn would talk about me to other people who might like to hear my music. You get to meet people and do the whole rock star thing like this.

I am going to need to find a good place to buy a birthday cake in the country of Singapore. because I have a relative in the country, that is having an important birthday in the near future. I really want to buy them a cake, as a nice gesture, considering that I have not seen them in a long time, and want them to know I am thinking of them. I want to read more about cakeflower.com.sg to see what sort of cakes I can buy online, and have delivered to the house of my relative.

I want to buy a nice cake, but at the same time, I do not want to spend too much money on the cake. I do not have a lot of spare money right now, but I really feel compelled to do this. Read the rest of this entry »

Vine Vera Skin Care has been a product that I’ve been able to put my trust into. I’ve worked out in the sun for years now which has left my skin looking as dry as a river bed with a network of furrows and valleys that make me appear to be much older than my thirty years. As a guy, I’ve learned how important it is to take care of your skin but unfortunately for me that happened a few years too late. I do what I can now to make sure that I am protected from pollutants and UV radiation from the sun but the damage has definitely been done. Read the rest of this entry »

In the old days there was often a struggle to keep warm during harsh winters. In northern areas blizzards are not uncommon and only using blankets or coats to keep warm will not always work. In the past this sometimes meant people died to complications caused by cold weather, but luckily today, heating has become a fairly standard availability. Most businesses and homes come with equipment for heating and while the technology and type can differ, the end result is approximately the same. However, it takes a quality heating contractor in Hudson County NJ to make sure that if something should go wrong with this system it can be fixed quickly and easily.

The scary part is that finding a quality contractor is not as easy as it used to be. More and more often people are capitalizing on unwitting customers that put too much faith in a contractor’s word. Read the rest of this entry »

These days it is surprisingly easy to look up videos and guides on the internet in order to be able to do handyman work on your own. Homeowners can handle things like leaks or small repairs despite not having huge experience, because these videos give all of the tips and tricks that usually take a long time to accumulate. This is definitely a great way to save money, but sometimes it is important to realize the limitations as well. For example, roof repair is often a very dangerous and difficult task so finding a roofer in Manhattan NY is probably a smarter choice than trying to dive in without any background in the work.

Ultimately roofers have to be some of the most skilled and qualified workers in the contracting market. A collapsed roof is nothing to scoff at; it can be very dangerous and obviously very costly. This means that someone working on a roof has to be very careful to make sure nothing is overlooked or done improperly. In the case of installations this means using the best quality materials and proper techniques, while with maintenance and repairs it can be all about seeing signs of potential future issues as well.

Of course just because a roofer has the skill and experience that a customer desires does not inherently mean the customer can afford to hire them. Budgets for customers vary widely and the cost of hiring a contractor can do the same. The key is finding the right balance, because hiring someone on the extremely cheap end often means that they will not put in the same effort or work of a more reputable contractor. Of course going for the high end often means people are paying too much, so finding a proper contractor somewhere in the middle is usually the best bet.

I knew it when I looked at it and I did not need the home inspector to tell me that the sub flooring in the bathroom was bad. You could tell from the way that the floor had sunk where the bath tub was sitting. It was one of those old fashioned tubs with the clawed feet. I needed to find a plumber in Bergen County NJ to give me a quote on the job. I figure that there is not any point in doing this thing half of the way. You are going to be ripping up half of the bathroom and it is going to be quite expensive. Read the rest of this entry »

The power of having other people share something today online is awesome. Do you remember that old shampoo commercial that asked you to tell two friends about the product? The ad asked you to buy the product and tell two friends about your experience. Then it went on to say how they would tell two friends who each would also tell two friends and so on it goes. This is how social media works, just a whole lot faster. This is also why you want to buy ReverbNation fans if you are a musician.

You can put your music on a website and tweet about it. You can post a link to your page or wall to get people to download your music Mp3 and listen. Read the rest of this entry »
