And Now, The End May Be Near…

I see that Pirate Bay (an illegal download site) has been raided, and is currently offline. Here in Canada, Saskatchewan internet providers are now forwarding info on users that visit those sites to the copyright holders for warnings of legal action as well.

As a creator of materials in print and online, and a supporter of live musicians, this is GREAT news – and long overdue. The internet has caused so much uncertainty for creative artists, and even long-established performers are having to do kick-starters to make money or be able to even record a new album.

This is a good trend, which I hope continues to swell – it is the law after all.

Support artists. Buy, don’t steal.

Later!

Stage West Brings Back The ’80’s

If you enjoyed the great musical acts of the ’80’s, you’re probably going to walk away a fan of Stage West’s latest production, 80’s Solid Gold. Featuring a talented cast of actors and singers, backed by the top-notch band led my Musical Director Konrad Pluta, this 2-hour show relives the best of that era.
