The final piece from my recital on May 2, 2015. Well... Most of it, anyway.

And now Google Voice is repeatedly sending me email notifications for the same text. I'm up to 72 times.

File a bug through the Hangouts app. It's also possible it's a problem from the sender, not with Google Voice.

Google Begins The Breakup Of Google+
There were a lot of big hopes for Google+ as a rival to Facebook when it was launched in 2011, but the social network has never quite lived up to the hype surrounding it. Even though it boasts 540 million  active users, the adoption rate has leveled off, es...

Update on Apple/Beats Music Royalties... Well... Kind of.
My October statement came in. Gotta love it. Beats Music gets to use MY MUSIC to entice new potential customers and they don't have to pay me ANYTHING. There's big money to be made in the music business... and the TECH companies are the ones making it. How ...

Wild guess where I am. On the bright side, I'm having a good time playing with my brother's Galaxy Tab S tablet. Already figured out how to do a few things.

Google Voice is... not great. But its integration in Hangouts is very good.

#DrDreisaHypocrite -  Here's the story of how ‪#‎BeatsMusic‬ - Dr Dre's brainchild - streamed my music without paying for it. If it is happening to me, it is happening to other musicians. It's time to speak up!

Fellow musicians: Check your streaming reports! Beats Music is not paying for music streamed to consumers during their "trial membership" periods.

Hillbilly Views: Open Letter to My Beloved Grandson

http://hillbillyviews.blogspot.com/2015/01/open-letter-to-my-beloved-grandson_25.html

"By the end of February, the situation in Alabama was becoming very tense. Jimmie Lee Jackson was shot by a policeman and died several days later. His crime? Trying to protect his mother from being beaten. By the first week in March, the news was traveling and the big confrontation was in motion. A white minister died because he dared to join and side with the demonstrators in Selma. People in Berea were aware of events in Alabama. Everyone was trying to keep up with the news. People talked about what was going on down there. Finally, a decision was made to join with the demonstration in the final push toward the Alabama capitol steps in Montgomery. I would be a participant; I would be on that bus."

Just in case there was any doubt... #DrDreisaHypocrite.

#Musicians, check your #digital #distribution reports. #BeatsMusic - #DrDre's and #Apple's $3 Billion marriage - is streaming your music to trial members to build their customer base and paying you NOTHING.

SPEAK UP!

Testing out my brother's Galaxy Tab S for the first time. Not used to it, yet, but I am loving the way Google+ comes out on it. I think I'm in love. If only I could get used to the keyboard...
