Why Wouldn't You Want To Buy The Next Scott Cooley Album?
I'll answer it for you.   Maybe the "wouldn't" should've been italicized in that title, as if you'd be hard pressed to come up with a legit reason, but

What They Don't Tell You: Music Publishing IS Spreadsheets

Is being "verified" for improved notability a bad thing?
I've been verified again.  I'm increasingly verifiable.  I'll explain what that means, and why it might be a stepping stone to increased notability by some measures.  Then, finally, I'll explore the bigger deeper question of whether that's something to be d...

Ramping up to release time, kind of a big deal
Someone accused me of resembling fictional anchorman Ron
Burgundy played by Will Ferrell recently when they saw my 70's style haircut
parted on the side and wearing a jacket and tie in a photograph - an unusual
look for me, but a bit of a stretch comparison...

Creative Writing about One's Own Creative Writing Habit (Lying about Lying in Songs)
I'd be willing to bet that some famous writers out there in
the world have said and been quoted for saying something along the lines of

Although I'm too lazy to google it and tell you which ones and how they
actually phrased so...
