I've been doing some music improvisation

I've been doing some live music improvisation with my band Lorenzo's Music on our Twitch channel.

We have been trying out different ideas on live streams to see what inspires us.

What if we Rumble fished? (YouTube Short clip)

This clip here is a YouTube Short from one of our sessions.

(View the full video here - GOOFIN' LIVE: RUMBLE FISH STYLE - LIVE STREAM CLIP)

When we turned on the cameras for this live stream session I said I wanted to try and play something that sounds like it's the soundtrack for the 1980s movie "Rumble Fish" by Stewart Copeland and Stan Ridgway.

So that's what we tried to do. 🙂

Songwriting live as an experiment

The band has been looking for some musical inspiration and I thought what if we forced ourselves to try and think of things while people are watching. 

No prep, no thinking about what to play beforehand. All we do is turn on the camera and throw out an idea to try musically.

No overthinking what to do just first thought and go with it!

It's been kind of fun. And we really end up trying things we wouldn't normally do because we have to keep the music going since people are watching.

How I use one Gmail address for multiple Soundcloud accounts

Do you know the Gmail "+" trick to use one email for multiple accounts on one service? Here's a little trick I use that works for any service.  I talked about this on the podcast episode I did with artist Mortimur K . In this case, let's say I used up all the uploads I have for my free Soundcloud account . With this trick, I can open a new free account and use the same Gmail address. I don't want to create another Gmail account to sign up again.  Using my one Gmail address for multiple accounts on the same service I don't remember when I learned this but you can alter the name on a Gmail address. Like, let's say mine is "tom@gmail.com". To be clear that is not my email. I wish it was, but this is just a short example. Start with the original Gmail address Add a "+" after the email name Where it says "tom" on the address I can put a "+" after that. Add a "+" after the email name After that "+" I ca

Every year making my book kinda sneaks up on me.

Can I Buy And Resell Copies Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP?

There are two questions that I get asked about publishing my webcomic books on Amazon KDP . 1 - Can I Order A Print Copy Of My Own Book From Amazon KDP? When I started printing on Amazon KDP I also had that question. The reason I put the books together is I was just kind of doing it for myself. I could make a paperback version of my webcomic books and then I and my family could get a copy. It didn't even occur to me that I could actually start selling the book in public.  I thought it was just print-on-demand and then maybe I could order one.  But when I print a book on Amazon KDP I can also get up to 999 copies and sell it on my own!  I was able to get my own copies from Amazon KDP sent to me.  As the author, I can get them at printing cost . So they're at a discounted price. The option to order author copies is right in the KDP publishing setup.  The button is next to the book in KDP. 👇 The other question I get about publishing my book on Amazon KDP... 2 - Can I Sell My A
