A Restatement of Purpose

As I stated in a recent article,  I took some time away from writing for most of 2018.  Part of […]

Summer Vacation is Over

You’ve probably noticed, but I took a break from writing, spending most of 2018 really looking at the music business. […]

I Know, I Know…

Cozmic Debris Universe- An Update

As promised, here’s an update on Cozmic Debris Universe, my stab at creating a social network devoted exclusively to independent music.

In short, things are looking great, and it’s on to the next step.

A Big Announcement From Cozmic Debris

The time dedicated to making my small contributions to the music community has multiplied, and life has become extremely chaotic. The hobby became an infatuation, which became a mission and has now transformed into an obsession. And now the obsession takes a big next step.
