The other day, I added air to my wife’s car’s tires using an air compressor that plugs into the car’s 12V power outlet. The use of the compressor plus the cold weather overnight was enough to drain the car’s battery, and my wife was unable to start her car the next morning. After driving her to work, I used a trickle charger on the battery and got it back to full strength.
Yes, I admit I drained the battery. But I do want credit for:
- Inflating the tires.
- Driving her to work.
- Charging her battery.
Am I a bad guy?
And now on to my Spotify dilemma …
Before I wrote an award-winning book of short stories that you can access by clicking here, I was making some music with friends under the artist name of Sunsets Rising. I can’t recall how, but our song “I Don’t Know Where the Sunset Goes” ended up on Spotify. It does have a following. Each month I get a report emailed to me about listeners from the previous month. Here’s January’s report.
This has the potential to be a valuable income stream for me. From what I can see online, I can expect to make between $3 and $5 per 1000 streams. You do the math. No, really, can someone do the math for me and let me know when I will get my first dollar from Spotify? I want to be part of a headline like this in the future.
But I also want to stand with Neil Young who demanded his music be pulled from Spotify over COVID and anti-vaxx conspiracies being espoused by Spotify personality Joe Rogan. Many other artists are supporting Young’s stance.
I also want to take a stand. I want my music pulled from Spotify. But I can’t seem to recall how to login as an artist, and I’m too lazy to go through the whole “forgot login” and “forgot password” nonsense to reset everything. Am I a bad guy?
