Hi Razor7Music

I hate bragging...
If I posted every time I had a placement..... people would be saying...'Why does this guy keep posting this stuff over and over.... ok we get it!!!...you write songs for TV shows'.
It is just your job.... writing songs.
Everyone that has a 'normal' job does not post something every time they fix your plumbing....or sell a car, or fly their airliner....or whatever....it's just their job.

Now, of course....you may disagree.....that's fine....no problem!

Just my 2 cents worth,
Tim
Tim,

HA! Honestly, it's a mix of that and how busy my life is. I have three kids, work full-time as a teacher, and do music SOME evenings and weekends. So, though I have 264 placements recorded via ASCAP. This doesn't take into account advertisements, movies, and other small payments and things that have happened. I just CAN'T post all of it, but every once in awhile I like to check in and let people know that YES, Taxi is for real and stuff happens because you make the daily/weekly/monthly/yearly effort of songwriting and producing. There is no quick fix or solution. You have to do the work. But through the work, there is eventually going to be a payoff.

I can honestly say I'm a professional musician without giggling or feeling inferior. :)
Just because I'm not Timberlake or The Black Keys doesn't mean I'm not legit.
I'm TOO LEGIT TO QUIT!

Peace out,

Tim,

Ha! I didn't think you were telling me not to post stuff. I understood what you were saying
I'm saying the reason I don't post a ton more is because my life is crazy busy. :)

Peace,
