Did you make any money?
Did you win any rewards?

What a crappy outlook.

Did you make someone smile?
Did you make someone laugh?
Did you help someone?
etc

Are not those better goals?

PS - If I live to be 90 and PGM keeps adding 50 new features each year the program will be so convoluted that no one will be able to use it! Note that is only 12 years away!


Me, it's not about how many times you fail, it's about how many times you get back up.
Cop, that's not how field sobriety tests work.

I think that was largely his point, Mario.
YouTube can easily be a vacuous treadmill and he's stepped off of it.

I took/was made redundant one day after my 50th birthday and my search beyond that taught me several things about myself that I'd not previously realised. That I actively want/need challenges ... I really didn't care that much about the money or the prestige, I wanted to do things that were hard and that I could do when so may others could not. That I wanted, as far as possible, what I did to make a positive contribution to the world. In truth I'd long done that, but hadn't really realised that it was actually important to me.

One other thing I learned was that my cat at the time realised something was wrong and followed me endlessly, everywhere, looking worried and mewing. Cats apparently, really can care.

That was the point Adam was making.

Adam starts out by saying he'd heard the phrase four years ago on a podcast featuring Freddy Wong. Freddy was a hugely successful YouTuber, but Freddy said that 1.8 million viewers meant nothing to people in the industry.

Adam's explains that a YouTube "career", no matter how successful, isn't sustainable and often seems to end in burnout.

But I don't give a [censorsed], I kind of just want to play bass and hang out with my friends and share in that community. Because I think that's the thing that really matters and the thing that I really am passionate about.

So after watching Freddy's video, he moved his focus to playing with his band, and expressed regret that he hadn't done that years ago.

98 years old and beyond., his aspirations are modest.

I don't know whether he was just using a figure of speech or not, but once I read his quote about living to 98 and beyond, I felt his video was not even worth watching.

Totally agree with this Gordon. A few years back I was totally incapacitated due to severe depression/anxiety. Most days I would sit on the sofa and just stare out the window. My cat. who usually slept all day on our bed began getting as close to me as possible and stayed there with me all day.

Yes, cats really do care.

Have you ever watched any of Adam's videos? He's a serious musician, and has some great videos.

As for the context: He started out the video talking about a jazz drummer he admired that was 98 year old, and still an active drummer.

The question he asked himself was: What do I want to be doing when I'm 98?

And the answer was: I want to be making music with my friends, like this guy - not making YouTube videos"

The Band-in-a-Box® Flash Drive Backup Option

Today (April 5) is National Flash Drive Day!

Did you know... not only can you download your Band-in-a-Box® Pro, MegaPAK, or PlusPAK purchase - you can also choose to add a flash drive backup copy with the installation files for only $15? It even comes with a Band-in-a-Box® keychain!

For the larger Band-in-a-Box® packages (UltraPAK, UltraPAK+, Audiophile Edition), the hard drive backup copy is available for only $25. This will include a preinstalled and ready to use program, along with your installation files.

Backup copies are offered during the checkout process on our website.

Already purchased your e-delivery version, and now you wish you had a backup copy? It's not too late! If your purchase was for the current version of Band-in-a-Box®, you can still reach out to our team directly to place your backup copy order!

Note: the Band-in-a-Box® keychain is only included with flash drive backup copies, and cannot be purchased separately.

Handy flash drive tip: Always try plugging in a USB device the wrong way first? If your flash drive (or other USB plug) doesn't have a symbol to indicate which way is up, look for the side with a seam on the metal connector (it only has a line across one side) - that's the side that either faces down or to the left, depending on your port placement.

Band-in-a-Box® 2024 Review: 4.75 out of 5 Stars!

If you're looking for a in-depth review of the newest Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows version, you'll definitely find it with Sound-Guy's latest review, Band-in-a-Box® 2024 for Windows Review: Incredible new capabilities to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs.

A few excerpts:
"The Tracks view is possibly the single most powerful addition in 2024 and opens up a new way to edit and generate accompaniments. Combined with the new MultiPicker Library Window, it makes BIAB nearly perfect as an 'intelligent' composer/arranger program."

"MIDI SuperTracks partial generation showing six variations – each time the section is generated it can be instantly auditioned, re-generated or backed out to a previous generation – and you can do this with any track type. This is MAJOR! This takes musical experimentation and honing an arrangement to a new level, and faster than ever."

"Band in a Box continues to be an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to experiment, compose, arrange and mix songs, as well as an extensive educational resource. It is huge, with hundreds of functions, more than any one person is likely to ever use. Yet, so is any DAW that I have used. BIAB can do some things that no DAW does, and this year BIAB has more DAW-like functions than ever."
