Music critique and a Web hosting site for Musicians

Discussion in 'rec.music.guitar' started by SteveTheMusicMan, Aug 29, 2003.

  1. Hi Group,

    I've been browsing this news group for quite awhile but I never got a
    chance to tell you anything about myself. I started a Record Company
    with the daughter of a friend of my wife. Her name is Debbie Kanaan
    (http://www.debbiekanaan.com). We have an album out but without the
    money to push it we haven't sold too many of them. However we are
    still on rotation lists on a bunch of radio stations in the US and
    Debbie has done a couple of live interviews. Since then we've started
    a Demo Business and Jingle Company and now a Web Site Hosting Company
    for Musicians. I'd love some feedback on our songs and our jingles.
    Our sites are below:

    http://www.creativerecords.net We were spending so much money on web
    space that we decided to become a web hosting company. Hey, if you
    need some web space, please let us know. I'll give discounts to people
    from this list. Just write to us and we'll give you a discount coupon
    :)

    http://www.creativerecords.com This site is our main site for our
    record company. You can hear most of the whole album here but you can
    hear the whole album at (http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/kanaan). I still
    have to get the whole album on our own site. Please feel free to buy
    the album :

    http://www.recorddemo.com This site has a bunch of songs that we've
    written since the album was released. The song I love you was written
    for Debbie's wedding.

    http://www.jingledoctor.com We have a 10 minute jingle production demo
    on the site as well as our latest jingle for Mortgage Now.


    Anyway let me know what you think of our music. Sometimes you are so
    close to what you are doing that you need some outside feedback.
    Thanks for all the good posts.

    Steve,

    Uhmmm...this is the exact same message you put into RMMB two days
    ago...verbatum...Have you been reading both NG's regularly and decided, in a
    fit of creative genius, that as you first post in both groups, spam would be
    a good way to introduce yourself? Seriously man, before you push your stable
    of talent and web hosting business, perhaps you can make a contribution to
    the various groups you are posting to and maybe, as people get to know you,
    they will gravitate towards your enterprise...'cuz frankly, right now, you
    are sounding like an opportunistic spammer with nothing to offer but your
    hand in my pockets. Nothing against you, Debbie or your web-hosting, but
    unless I see something from you even remotely on-topic in any of the groups
    you purport to lurk in...for me, anyway...PLONK!

  3. Hi All,

    As I replied in the rec.music.makers.builders group, I said it was
    spam and posted to a bunch of newsgroups. So what? As I said in the
    other group I've been newsgroups since they were dial up BBS's. To be
    honest I don't do a lot of posting but I've done my share throughout
    the years. I actually look, on and off, at 30 or so news groups.

    Hey, I've been out of work for over a year (I'm in the computer
    industry in New Jersey as a software QA test lead). Is it a crime to
    ask for some help?

    Steve

    The Usenet newsgroups were
    never "dial up BBS's" --
    the were always net-based,
    although back in the DOS
    era "dial up BBS's" were
    often the only way for the
    general public to read or
    post to them. Someone
    formerly in "the computer
    industry" might be
    expected to know that.

    Good luck with your
    venture!

  5. Hi All,

    I did say it was spam and I did post to a bunch of newsgroups. So
    what? I've been newsgroups since they were dial up BBS's. I'm an
    anti-spammer but in this case I've been in these lists for a long time
    and if I can reap some benefits for my business that's great for me. I
    also feel that I can benefit in two ways from the people I've been
    looking at for years. The first way is that I can let musicians and
    music people know about my web hosting (This is a candidate for spam
    haters). But the reviews I asked for were largely ignored except by
    one and I appreciate those comments.

    So for those I pissed off, sorry. For the others please listen to our
    stuff and give us real comments and, if you need a web site, consider
    us.

    Thanks,

    Steve Lewis

    P.S. I ran this through spell check. You are so picky.

    I'll see your "TRS 80" and
    raise you one late '70s
    S-100 system running CP/M
    1.4. The BBS phenomenon
    was entirely separate from
    Usenet except that some
    local BBSs served as dial-
    up net access points.
    Usenet goes way back and
    was alway net-based -- in
    the old days only a few
    colleges and defense
    contractors had access to
    it. Here's some history:

  8. Ah yes. I knew that usenet was web based but it's the people that were
    originally in the BBS's that embrassed them once they were on the net.

    I actually have a TI 99 somewhere in a closet in a friends house. I
    had the model III of the TRS-80 and wished at that time that I had an
    s100 bus CMP computer.

    I'm really showing my age now eh?
