10. Links and Affiliates

One of the goals of this web site is to connect you with third parties, including other web sites, blogs, artists, music, films, etc. that we believe are interesting or worth recommending to our readers. Many of our media articles link directly to where such online media can be purchased on Amazon.

We are enrolled in Amazon‘s Affiliate program, and so we earn a profit based on our referral sales. You can help support our web site and the various artists we link to by purchasing from those pages! We enjoy this program because it gets the word out about our favorite artists, and helps us at the same time.

We want you to know that we choose our outgoing links and recommendations very carefully for your enjoyment, and we are not influenced by these or any other third parties regarding the content we post and link to. We only put something here because we like it, and we think you will too.

Help us avoid placing ads all over the site by making a purchase or two from our affiliate links, or from our own products. We’re grateful for your support!

11. Third-Party Content

We often post third-party content, including artwork, videos, and other online media for your enjoyment, especially in the media section. We also use stock images in some of our posts, especially in writing. We will always link to the original site, author or artist where we found this content, or provide more information to support the author or artist in question. We will of course remove this content at any time, should the copyright holder ask us to do so. We are simply trying to raise awareness of the artist because we respect his/her work or what he/she is doing, and so we also respect their decision to remove said content from our web site. No copyright infringement is intended.

12. Views and Opinions

The views represented on this web site are not necessarily those of our affiliates, our clients, featured artists, or the websites we link to. On the flip side, we do not necessarily endorse the views, opinions, and policies of those sites that we link to, which have their own unique Terms of Service and Privacy Policies. In the case of arts and media discussion, our views and opinions are our own and not necessarily those of the artist, filmmaker, author or other Creator in question. Again, we share these views and articles merely to raise awareness of those Creators whose work we respect, and to generate discussion.
