Write, Submit, Repeat. I love that. Now that everyone has emptied my stash, I've got to make a run to Binny's. Be right back. Make yourselves at home.

Oh, I feel your pain, dispatch is kicking my a$$! I have yet to get a forward to a dispatch listing)-; five attempts, five returns. Ouch! But on the bright side, I’m 6 for 10 on other listings. It ain’t easy!

Three submissions up.. and three submissions down! It's official. I should stay away from electronic music Thought I had it nailed. Lopped off my extensive intros to make nice clean starts. Cut the fluff off the ends. Upbeat, energetic stuff. Screener didn't like my choice of instruments and the mixes left something to be desires. mostly instruments. Not that I'm disputing the screener. But that noise you may have heard was the sound of 3 new tracks tossed onto the rejection pile.As my wife so supportively put it, "that's three more no's closer to a yes"

Drums too far back... clarinet doesn't sound right... mixes are not masters. But I am not throwing my 2 pieces in the trash. I'm going to replace the clarinet with something else, work on the percussion track, and work on the mixes & then submit again. And I'll keep doing that until I get over the fence. I encourage you to do the same. If you need help on what to do, post 'em up here and let us give you some ideas. And listen to your lovely wife cheersHummin'bird
