Treble Clef : CHM Design Store - Music Stuff & More

Treble Clef : CHM Design Store - Music Stuff & More

There's a great new, handy "Search Box" at the top of the Pages in my CafePress store.

I typed in the keyphrase "treble clef" and look at what all I got.

One can easily narrow the Search by using the "Browse Products" features as well.

Makes my store much easier to navigate and more organized. A better experience for customers, affiliates, and - me.

Check out the link above to see my "treble clef" Search Result. (Note that, in addition to the Traditional Basic Black Treble Clef pictured in this post, there are about a jillion treble clef graphics in my store in many other colors and styles.)

New Circle of Fifths, and their own new C of 5 section

The new "Pearl" Circle of Fifths.

New at Music Stuff & More @ Zazzle - a Musical Circle of Fifths section. Nothing but Circle of Fifths. Merchandise there now are key chains (very handy, also inexpensive), T-Shirts, round stickers (of various sizes), round magnets (of various sizes). I've only just begun, look for much more merchandise here, also more "C of 5" graphics.

The good news/bad news about the Music Stuff & More @ Zazzle Music Circle of Fifths section is that I start off the section with thorough explanation and advice regarding the Musical Circle of Fifths.

While it is good for all to know what this special Musical Circle is and what to do with it, my text takes up ~90% of the space "above the fold" on the Page - a no-no. So, point is, be sure not to miss the Musical Circle of Fifths merchandise at the bottom of the Page! It is still there, very much there (and with more Music Circle of Fifths to come, as mentioned above).

Readers may be familiar with the long-present Musical Circle of Fifths section in the Music Merchandise area of Music Stuff & More @ CafePress - for those who are not familiar, please click on its link in this sentence.

New Music Graphics & Other Music Merch News

New Music Graphics - an assortment of several, both improved favorites as well as brand-new. Includes the Basic Black Traditional Treble Clef, the Beethoven graphic, and the "Wild" Piano Keyboard graphics, all now available on dark apparel. I've also re-visited my "B Sharp" and "B Natural" graphics, making them now available on dark apparel, as well as putting the two graphics together as, drumroll, "B Sharp B Natural." (I'm still rolling out these new "B Sharp", "B Natural" graphics, so keep checking back if you aren't finding what you're after.)

Brand-new music graphics include two versions of green eighth notes.

And, it's back to school! Find some of the musical stuff for back-to-school featured here.

CafePress has some new merchandise which does - and look for more - include music graphics. The new Ceramic Travel Mugs (would be especially nice for holiday gifts), more "InfiniStitch Embroidery" choices (for example, more cap colors), another drumroll, please - the brand-new Junior Jerseys (replacing the former Jr. Jerseys previously available). These new Junior Jerseys come in a light green, a neat thing with green now being considered the new black. (Green is "in", and much more popular than it used to be - it's an Earth-friendly thing. Look around - you'll see people wearing much more green.).

Last, but certainly not least, I'm continuing to expand my music offerings on Zazzle. My Zazzle merchandise, as on CafePress and Spreadshirt, will continue to be mostly music-oriented.

The mystery of Michael Phelps' iPod playlist

The mystery of Michael Phelps' iPod playlist - Fourth-Place Medal - Olympics - Yahoo! Sports

I had been wondering what the heck Michael Phelps keeps listening to on his iPod... Apparently, I wasn't alone.

See the above link to find how what music Phelps has been listening to. The quick answer: rap is high on his Playlist.

Another musical item re the Olympics: FWIW, the Chinese anthem gets my thumbs down. Sounds oddly Russian, must be a Communist kind of thing. Too bad they didn't use *Chinese* music - much of which I rather like.

Nightly Business Report . Best Buy to open in-store music centers | PBS

(originally from AP)

The link above pretty much says it all - Best Buy stores will offer more than music CD's soon, to include musical instruments and all that goes with them. Look for popular name brands such as Fender, Gibson, and Roland, etc.

Will be quite a competition for Sam Ash and Guitar Center, but, hey, greater convenience for musician consumers.

New Beethoven, Sale, also BeZazzled

Find the "new Beethoven" here @ Music Stuff & More store

What's new about it? This Beethoven graphic is larger and also can be used on dark apparel, meaning, yes, you can now get Beethoven on a black shirt if you wish. See an example of just that below... This is a linked image, which should take you directly to where you can see a larger photo, plus buy the darn thing if you would like.

In other news, there's a sale, starting today, at CafePress of their Junior Jerseys - $4 off - while supplies last.

In still more news... I've opened up a Zazzle store called Music Stuff & More @ Zazzle @ Yes, you'll find many of the same music graphics you know and love from my CafePress Music Stuff & More store.

(For some strange reason "Blogger" is screwing around with my links and will not "do" the Zazzle link as I would like. "Blogger" did this at another one of my blogs. Just the same... the Zazzle link above should work just fine and get you to the Music Stuff & More @ Zazzle store, regardless.)

Please drop me a Message on Facebook if you're there - both my CafePress and my Zazzle music stores are there. Before long I'll be adding some music goodies (not merch, but items of interest) to my Facebook Profile (I'm kinda new on Facebook.)

Keep cool.

The Latest Music Graphics

New, per customer request: "here comes treble", my Traditional Basic Black Treble Clef with the quote just mentioned added, in assorted text sizes and text colors. Also, while I was in the word-play frame-of-mind, "Bass Instincts", the text added to my Traditional Basic Bass Clef, in assorted styles, the Basic Bass Clef itself remaining the same.

See these on merchandise @ New Music Graphics And, note one of the "Bass Instinct" graphics at top.

Re music, generally: 4th of July is coming. A must-hear: some J. P. Sousa music, especially brass bands (although an orchestra will do) playing "Stars and Stripes Forever." Sooo July 4th. Love it.

Still busy with music with my iPod/iTunes, who isn't...? And the nifty videos about music on YouTube. Should play *my own* instruments more often...! (That would be keyboard, guitar, and assorted other little wind things, such as recorder and harmonica. And my electronica: synthesizer, drum mach, etc. ! '80s, '90s MIDI dinosaur stuff, but cool and fun.)

Keep cool. Happy 4th. Listen to and, better yet!, make music. Enjoy!

P.S. I've started a music stuff store on Zazzle. I'll put a link here soon. I also have started a Profile Page on Facebook. Find there graphics, links, etc. to my blogs, graphics, merch, stores, etc. See photos of the merchandise with my music graphics on 'em at my Facebook Zazzle Gallery. (Yes, this needs a link here, too! Soon.) Find me on Facebook under my real name, give me a "Poke" or drop a message on me.
