E- Reading : FLEPia

For many of you who know me personally, you know I love my gadgets, and I've always been a big fan of portable gadgets specifically. One gadget that I had gotten back in 2007 was a Sony eReader, and since then I've just been in love with that idea.

I know many argue that "nothing will compare to the feel and smell of a book", yes, and all that is understandable. But we have all been moving forward with almost every aspect of our lives, like living in houses or apartments instead of caves and tents. Using (hybrid) cars or bicycles to get to work instead of horses and camels, and I'm pretty sure a whole lot of us do understand that Global Warming is not a myth, and is actually a problem. We also understand that trees are our friends, seriously, trees are awesome.
So why haven't we maid the "mental" switch to digital reading yet?

As an artist, I do understand the romance of using out-dated or vintage things, to help us escape "the now". So I'm willing to make a compromise. You ready? Here it is.
We'll leave the Books alone, ok. But how about Magazines and Newspapers? lets update that whole thing.
The first thing people will say is "but Mos, Magazine are so colorful, with pictures and stuff. E-Readers are just black text on white background". Well if that is your only concern..then I have just the thing.

The FLEPia from Fujitsu, this is a 9 inch flat surface of colored touch screen goodness. It would be perfect for both Magazine's and Newspapers, primarily due to its large size. I think its pretty cool, and I'm hoping the concept catches on.

And this is only if you don't already have a large tablet, apps like "Flipboard" give you the whole colored magazine experience with ease on your Android or iPhone device. I use it on my Galaxy Note 8, and I use "Kobo" for books.

These devices are being created not only to help us get information faster, but they are also helpful to our lovely planet. We only have one Earth (right now). I am aware that other Earth-Like Exo-planets have been discovered...but until we figure out how we can warm-hole our way to them..I suggest you give E-Reading a try.

I actually started reading more once I got my Galaxy Note 8, because I could start several books at one time, and have them all with me in my bag any where I go.

I hope this was helpful.
I'll blog you later

I love it when I learn new words, my new favorite one is Selenophilia.
You have no idea how excited I was to learn that this word existed! It basically means "A Love of the moon", which would make me a Selenophile "(n) a person who loves the moon".
How freakin cool is that!!?

I have always had a healthy obsession with the moon, I never knew why, and I never questioned it. I've just always found comfort in sitting or standing, and stare at the moon. It always clams me down.
In my desert culture, the Moon is used as a symbol of beauty many times, and as you may ha
ve heard in many of my songs, I use the moon quite often in my writing.

The cool thing is, I learned about this word, just as I had finished writing a new song called "Sahara Moon", of course. So this new exciting discovery lead me down a moonlight rabbit hole, and now I'm working on a 5 song EP of love songs that are moon themed.
Needless to say the word "Selenophilia" makes it …

Bandcamp \\ vs // Patreon

As you may have heard, Bandcamp has recently launched a "Subscription" service for their artist and their supporters. The main idea is for fans/supports of an artist, would "Subscribe" to him/her. By doing so the supporter would pay a monthly charge to the artist through Bandcamp, and in return they get 1st dibs on new songs, and even exclusive material.
The new music is automatically ready for streaming on your Bandcamp App, and you would even have the option to download it if you like. There is even an option to give Subscribers a discount on other merch, and you can of course make your whole back catalog available as well.

Patreon has been doing a similar thing for a while now, but with Patreon its open for more than just music. Its for "Artists" in general. And I have to say, I do tend to find more Webcomic and Digital Artists using Patreon. I also see a lot of Video content creators on there as well, and some "Audio" artist.

I'm sure th…

Closer to the moon

Great News friends.
 I can officially say, that I have finished recording my "Songs of Selenophilia" album, woho. It took a while and I apologize, but a few things have come up on the way. I moved resting palces (but still in Baltimore area), I co-produced Janice B.'s latest album "Mantra" with Maurice of StinkyFace Music, I'm also learning some new Tech skills, like how to program in Python, and Web Development for a side project I'm working on.

Also I think I like this image to be used in some way for the album.
Its an photo taken of the Supermoon, from Baltimore, by my good friend Rob Hinkal of ilyAIMY , which I think appropriate since this moon album was created in Baltimore, it'll be a full circle type of thing.

Alright, I just wanted to share the good news with you all.
I'll be back soon with more updated.
Big hugs, and much love.

When you have a chance, go be creative today.
