be smart and get a smart device free plus $25

If you sell your CDs at concerts you may already accept credit cards, chances are that you are using the Square Reader for Smartphones.

And you may have encountered the two main flaws of the Square at this point:

The device itself is flimsy and wobbles, and secondly, there is no customer service, especially when you need them on the road at the show.

Here is the alternative that I want to recommend to you.

It’s called uSwipe !

They take the same percentage as all the other guys, but their device is more stable and comes in a case for easy safe transport - which is handy.
There are no other costs or fees involved - so whether you use it or not - you just pay the cut when you make a sale.  Period !
And on top of that, of course, you can get all the customer information including email (to send them a receipt) and also put in cash sales so that you'll have an fan email list for further use as well as have your sales ready for bookkeeping.
If you are interested, just go to their website and fill out the application + send a voided check –scan.
Or email me at and I’ll send you the Merchant application.

When you completed the Merchant application with this confirmation # 9460-12598 under the bank ID part I’ll PayPal you $25  :)
On top of the great uSwipe hock up – isn’t that wunderbar! - And I may get an iPad mini ...

Happy Holidays and To your success!

Yours In Music, Frank

Ancient Future Times

December 2013 Issue:

Dickens of an Ancient Future Present

by Ancient Future Past, Present, and Future Leader Matthew Montfort with Apologies to Charles Dickens

I HAVE endeavoured in this Spooky little spoof, to raise the Spirit of a solution to Silicon Skulduggery, which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season, with their religions, or with me. The Culprits' names are but metaphors for what Man must improve upon, and have been changed to protect the Guilty in hopes they may change their ways. Though it be lengthy for a dispatch of the Digital Age, may it haunt the Interwebs pleasantly.

Pirate and Scrooogle

Scrooogle Logo

Torrent Pirate was dead, to begin with. There is no doubt whatever about that. Etherseizer Scrooogle and he were partners for who knows how many years. Scrooogle was his search partner, his ad agency, his friend, and his mourner.

Scrooogle is what the politically astute would call a person of corporate heritage. As was Pirate. Nobody ever stopped them in the street to say, with gladsome looks, "My dear Pirate and Scrooogle, how are you?" Read the full story.

Musician's Fund

"At this festive season of the year, Mr. Scrooogle," said the gentleman, "it is more than usually desirable that we should make some slight provision for the Musicians. Many are in want of common necessaries to practice their craft. A few of us are endeavouring to raise a fund to buy them some means of production. We choose this time, because it is a time, of all others, when Want is keenly felt, and Abundance rejoices. What shall I put you down for?"

"Nothing!" Scrooogle replied. Read on.

Ghost of the Ancient Future Past

Scrooogle Spoke of an Ancient Future Reunion Concert

"I am the Ghost of the Ancient Future Past. Rise, and walk with me!" When they entered, preparations for a concert were under way. In came a fiddler with a music-book, and went up to the stage and warmed up, his fingers moving like fifty buzzing bees. In came all the other young musicians with their instruments, bounding to the stage and readying to perform. Read on.

"I am the Ghost of the Ancient Future Present," said the Spirit. "Listen upon me!" Scrooogle reverently did so. "You have never heard the likes of this before!" exclaimed the Spirit. Read on.

Hey everyone !

I am working on my next sound healing album. It is going to be focused on reiki/healing energy for use with reiki practices and healing circles. I still have many songs left to compose but during the process i would love to share them with the community :)
