I went to ebay.com, and wrote the silliest ad copy I could think of on the spur of the moment for my friend scottm's roots pop/rock CD, "Meet....the Scott M Experience". I've been so gratified by the (few) people who've enjoyed my own CD (and the many people who have not complained), that I thought I'd apply my kitschy marketing skills to a CD of real music. I expect it will take me 5 or 6 ads to figure out a marketing hook (i.e., write something silly enough to actually sell a CD), but it will be fun to try.
I had a lot of fun at the cdbaby.com site, playing with the idea of setting up cheap 'net distribution for "vibrating electric fields".
I also noticed that my wife got us sheet after sheet of Ogden Nash stamps. I feel that life depends on things like Ogden Nash stamps sometimes.
I'm still plugging away at Ian McIntyre's Robert Burns biography. What a curious, hearty rascal of a poet!
