Music After 50

Found an interesting website dedicated to musicians who are over 50 called Music Over 50.
I have to say I have found nothing there of much value but I think the concept makes sense. It is not a year old yet. I found the site through the FaceBook Gretsch page. While it might sound kind of morbid, this site could be a great asset for older musicians who have suffered disabilities, strokes, arthritis & such. Obviously it s meant to appeal to an older audience of a world dominated by yunguns.
It's a web 2 / social media type site & will need some time to build up and will, of course, be dependent on user activity, but it targets a real niche & could just catch on.
So why is the tune, "Old & In The Way" bouncing around in my head, now ?

Strata & Photoshop
Strata maintains a tight integration with Adobe products. If you are used to Adobe stuff, the initial learning curve in Strata is pretty easy. Strata can actually render out layered .psd files that you can use in Photoshop and, for animations, After Effects. Strata maintains Mac & Win software lines.
