Snow Continues to Fall on Northern Connecticut.

Snow has been falling since around 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon.  Road conditions range from slushy on back roads, while major routes and highways, such as Route 8 south, are perfectly clear.By Preston Hazard December 1st, 2019 2:00 pm EST
 When I woke up this morning, I wasn't sure what to expect as far as road conditions. After I jumped in my car and headed to my usual breakfast spot (which is all back roads from my house, as well as the studio) I was hit with an overwhelming beauty of the snow-covered trees, ice caked cars, and rare quietness, that only seems to happen after a snow storm. Amazingly, apart from some minor road slush, and patches of ice, the roads weren't that bad. After breakfast, I drove down to the newsroom, inside the Pow Animation Studio, located in the northwest corridor of Connecticut, and the road conditions remained the same. After working on something for a while, I began to wonder what the road conditions were like on the more main roads that su…

"Smashing Pumpkins" uploads new weird music video to Youtube

                         *****WARNING, THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS SPOILERS*****

American alt-rock band "Smashing Pumpkins" is a group that needs no introduction. With albums such as, "Gish", "Siamese Dream", Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness" and singles like, "Zero" and "Bullet with Butterfly Wings" the band is probably one of the most iconic rock outfits in the Alternative scene.

While band frontman Billy Corgan is undoubtedly a talent figure in the world of music and literature. However, his filming style might be a bit more on the, let's just say, unusual side. A few days ago, the band released the official music video, for their new single, "Silvery Sometimes (Ghosts)" which you can watch here:

While the song that accompanies the video is, in my opinion, one of the bans best, the video. Well, it's just plain weird. The video takes place in some sort of abandoned house ride, or maybe an attraction some sort of theme park. The members (excluding Billy Corgan) of the band are seemingly challenged to spend a night in the building. Throughout the video, they are harassed by, very crappy looking "ghosts". After a few minutes, the band members find themselves inside a control room with nonother than Billy himself. They angrily push him around, then. the video ends leaving its viewers to wonder, "who let Billy Corgan direct this video".

Routenote: Should you use it? Here's My story.

Routenote propagates itself as, "Europes leading music distributor"      But is it really as good as they say? There are two possible answers to that. The short answer is yes. It takes a long to do anything, they are about as slow as it gets but, considering it does basically what every online music distributor does, for free. It's about as good as you can get. 
    When I first started making music, I was overwhelmed with the number of distributors claiming to be able to publish my art. After about a week of frequenting online music forums across the web, I can across Routenote, and at first, it was amazing. I was able to release three singles without any hassle. But then came the day I wanted to publish a full album, and oh boy was that... fun... For the record, I'm still working on publishing that album, and their support system is less than par. So to make a long story short, if you're really serious about i…
