Crash & Comics & Video & Fog

So I was driving to Kirk Adam’s open studio thing tonight (a few people gather to paint, draw, etc in his warehouse space at the same time on Monday nights & I haven’t been able to attend previously because of …

    you know someone pointed out to me the twitter for #dadboners and it made me think that LK would work in the twitter format.

    just sayin. also i just wanted to use this as an opportunity to post dadboner on your sight/site.

  2. I actually wanted to try to do some Twitter style stories, but then Tweet-U-Later stopped working & I also don’t think you can see a Twitter stream in reverse order so the story would read reversed after the initial entries which might be odd.

    • GoddakkAttack says:

      it’s only odd if you look at it from the perspective of reading a linear story.

      however as someone that gets daily twitter updates/feeds the story will make sense. you just have to phrase things so that it’s not necessarily you have to read one to get the other. so that each also works as a stand alone.

      • GoddakkAttack says:

        also i don’t mean i get daily twitter updates feeds , i mean in general someone used to the format

  3. There’s a place that does Twitter poetry that actually isn’t as horrible as it sounds like it might be. Maybe I’ll work on it.

YouTube, Video

So I got an email from YouTube today that they decided I now qualify for ad sharing with them (they must have lowered their standards as a few months ago they told me I needed to average 10,000 views per …

Internet Promotion from Zero in 2011

Recently a friend of mine was asking where he should post up stuff for his brand new band (no web presence yet at all) given the decline in MySpace.  So I came up with this as my list in order …

    the bandcamp is good because of the control you have over the look and feel, the embed and sharing options. the fact that the money they take is minimal an not up front stuff like that and the ability to sell physical and digital and the digital comes in a variety of formats. the limit is bad i guess if you arent selling much but if you are i guess you shouldnt complain about the small fee. mostly its free and they take the 15% out of sales so you never really pay out of pocket which is nice too. i mean they have to make money somehow and with the amount of free dloads it makes sense

    also goodluck staying away from sonicbids i u want to do anything related to the big music fests showcases

    • Bandcamp has a free download limit where they start charging a fee. I’m not sure exactly where it lies, but I’m sure if you get a review on Pitchfork you’ll get screwed over it for a couple hundred bucks. Which I have no problem with, sure they deserve to make money. My bigger problem with them is the whole experience of the only album I tried to get from them (a Chris Olley download only thing a couple years ago) needing to try to have the link sent to three different email addresses before getting one to put it in my spam box instead of automatically deleting it.

      The thing with Sonic Bids & others like it are they are collecting a fee for a possible appearance on something where 90% of the line-up is pre-established & not associated with them at all. Plus there’s the whole thing of festivals these days usually being fairly useless if you want to play for more than 20 people as you end up playing head to head against Guided by Voices & The Flaming Lips.

    you don’t automatically get charged. you get to a limit and have to buy more “credits” or whatever they call it…power ups or some such. Your issue seems like it has more to do with your email rather than bandcamp.

    …the point is that every single one of these things are now exclusively sonicbids submission pretty much. So it’s not only a scam it’s a monopoly.

    • Yeah, I’d agree it was a problem with my email account if it only didn’t come through on my silbermedia email address (not even to the spam box), but it also got blocked on my juno address (not in the spam box) & then it was in my aol spam box for my third email attempt. Hopefully it works better now or they at least updated it so you don’t have to check your email & you go directly to a download page as that’s what makes sense anyway as I know so many people who’s Paypal email is essentially their spam non-checking email.

      I don’t think those things are exclusively Sonic Bids, just exclusively Sonic Bids for unsolicited stuff. If a label pays for a label showcase thing for SXSW/CMJ, they can pick the bands without them going through a submission process. At least it was like that two years ago. I kinda gave up on bothering looking into live stuff a while ago…..

Blogs, Remora

I got some work done researching some more bloggers to service for Silber when the next bit of promo is ready to happen.

Sonic Youth, WordPress, Dreams

So Kim Gordon & Thurston Moore are breaking up.  This one didn’t hit me too hard as I was never a huge Sonic Youth fan (just a guy who liked some of their music), but back 15 years ago when …

Video Entertainment Entry – Sun Ra, 2002, People Who Do Noise,

Okay, so I wanted to make an entry with some video stuff in it rather than it just being about me like it normally is….

My grandmother died last night.  I was holding her hand.  It still seemed like she was dying alone despite me being there with her.  Which reminds me of years ago before I quit my job to take care of her …
