Tag Archives: music placement


So my spreadsheet/database for song placements is almost done.  I hope to finish it off in a day or two.

There was a problem with the mailing list sign-up form throughout the Silber website.  I’ll be trying to track where …

    also technically aren’t you not supposed to use it for trips and such and only projects? that didn’t stop Amanda Palmer but she may have some weight to throw (no pun intended).

    Also you may have to think about dipping in too much. That’s already 3 no? perhaps you should kickstart each individual bottle as opposed to a six pack.

    • The Bottle Comic Project is indeed the third project (though I’m not doing anything to promote the Puzzle Box one). But with only 86 backers of the first one & only 10 of those backers coming from Silber fandom (meaning they had emails already on Silber mailing list), I’m mainly shooting for the Kickstarter community rather than the Silber community.

      The Bottle Project is individual bottle backing at the $5 – $15 level. It’s not until $50 where you are backing six bottles.

      Kickstarter says it’s not for vacations, not excluding travel. There are a ton of people with projects like “let me take a bunch of photos at the Grand Canyon” or whatever where people just go on vacation & take a hundred photos & put them in a PDF. Hopefully the people doing that stuff aren’t just taking pictures with their phones of their friends, but I can’t say for certain as I think those projects are fairly bogus & have never backed one.

      We’ll see what happens. I think it would be a good idea to get a failure or two under my belt to go with the successes to make me a more rounded human being.

Ned Raggett asked me to move this into a blog post so he could refer people to it, so here it is from a Facebook discussion.

    missed this. I certainly have never seen a cent in any of my Carta ASCAP statements from any internet plays at all, though I know they happen. It’s a mystery to me. I’m fortunate (maybe) enough that I don’t count on music for any portion of my income and it provides a decent tax write off for me, but it would be nice to see, like, $5 at some point from one of these services.

  2. The internet plays I just got on the current BMI statement I have are from a two year old record. Most of which is for Rhapsody streaming play (which I would have thought I’d get that money from Rhapsody via my digital aggregator?). I don’t know exactly how things work, but it seems pretty random as far as actually getting money from a PRO because most of the places that play indie radio (community & college stations) have tiny broadcast radiuses & often get a special license to not need to pay the PROs.

USB mic, Music Supervisors, Remora Remix, Dream

So I tried out the USB mic I got the other day & it doesn’t work as I thought it would.  I thought it would act as it’s own input device, but instead it still goes through my soundcard & …
