Doing It

Do you know that among other services, Broadjam, the Internet music sharing company, helps Indie musicians get their songs placed in TV and movies?  Okay, it costs $20 a song to submit to an Opportunity and I’m guessing that less than .001% of submissions actually get placed but hey – I just gave it a whirl and submitted my song ”Bones” to two Opportunities!  One call is for an FBI crime series and the other is for a horror film.
If you want a FREE download of my entire “Bones” song, please CONTACT ME and I’ll be happy to e-mail the MP3 to you.
No need to leave your e-mail address, it’s already on file for my eyes only here.  (Unless you’ve left a ficticious one?)   :)
I’ll be interested to hear your interpretation of “Bones.”  I have one way I describe it but I don’t want to sway your innocent mind so I’ll let the song speak to you itself and if you want to come back and tell me what it says to you – please do!
Have a super-great day and if you have a dream, no matter how big or small, I hope you’re DOING IT too!
(And sweet dreams tonight.  Don’t let the bed bones bite.) ;)

    Dem Bones, dem bones. Gosh, you are a firdbrand of creativity and drive. You really might achieve that status of fame you crave one fine day, and actually grace the cover of the Rolling Stone, curlers, bra, thong, and all. Email me for address. I could dig a good dose of Bones.

    Hey Jannie
    Thank you for that comment you left on my blog. Very kind. I will miss you a lot! I am not just tossing out cordial greeting words. I do mean that. I am beginning to experience drug withdrawals from surrendering up my blog.

    There is a HUGE part of me that does not want to let that go and I have some private reasons that I did not reveal there for deleting it.

    Anyway, I just you to know that I would love to keep in touch with you. I am going to have a new e-mail address and I don’t know exactly how to get that to you.

    I don’t want to leave it here because it has my full name in it and I don’t want to drop that out to the public. If your blogger e-mail address works drop me an e-mail and i will send it to you.

    Hello, All, hope the MP3s arrived intact?

    I thank you all so much for commenting, for requesting the free download and for sharing your kind congrats for my Big Leap. Thanks Lynn, Dot, Belle, Sheila, Lance, Thomma Lynn, Mia, Cathy, and Wade.

    Those of you who have left other statements, I will reply here below.

    Writer Dad, welcome, glad you could pop in. (Writer Dad’s first time here!)

    K: Yes, no downside to 20 bucks!

    Glenn: Fame? Is that what I’m after, you think? I’m all about the fortune.

    Karyn: Ain’t those skeletons something else!

    Sheila: Yes, sadly it does make one think of horrible things such as innocent victims.

    I wonder how I could get on CSI? Broadjam didn’t say which series the Opportunity was for. I’ll look into that.

    Cath: Welcome back! Missed you.

    Kim: I have no idea if it’s for Bones, but that might be cool. Could even be for new show.

    Tammy: I do not have an e-mail via Blogger but you can always reach me from my Contact page here, it links to e-mail. Gonna miss you and will be thinking about you.

    Oh Nikki: Maybe they will BOTH want and be able to use it! Dream big Jannie, dream big.

    Again, thank you ALL so much. I’ll offer more free downloads eventually of the newer songs I’ve written.

    Guys, thanks for your e-mails and comments here. Funny thing is we don’t even watch those crime shows, but I hear they are wildly successful!

    If I make some money off the song we’ll take Kelly on a Disney cruise, pay off some debt and buy 122 boxes of Honey Nut Cheerios!

    And yes to Wade sending my tune to any record producer he wants to!!!

    Wasn’t a snippet already on your Songs page? I haven’t had time to hear those yet, due to a slow modem n limited hard-disk space available. My machine is ancient, circa ‘01. Maybe this day off I can load-

    Before hearing it I’ll tell ya that when I hear the word “Bones” I think of poor Molly Bish’s bones getting picked out of the Palmer MA woods one vertebrea at a time- (She kinda resembles MB), n was missing two years. I had her pic on my wall. Then parts were found in woods I had to drive past to visit MB, soon after thinking I felt her ghost there- It’s an eerrie thought for me.

    I’m sure the song is tons different!

    Rhett, Heather, Jewel, Davina, Momisodes, Teahouse, Miladysa: Hope you all got your downloads?

    Davina: Yes, she’s a cutie. (Like I really had anything to do with it.) Thanks for saying.

    Weyrd1: Read the article. Cool! Was surprised they didn’t mention Folk Uke. The jokes were funny!

    Snag: Yes there was some of the song up here indeed, as a snippet. Just Googled Molly Bish, so sad. I am really hoping with Kelly’s Kung Fu and self defense she will know what to do if and when she needs it.

    I do hope the song is tons different for you. It’s just a bunch of words I strung together over a melody I had.

    Belle: Thank you.
