Promute, Rivulets, Bottle Comics, Panthan, Butterfly Corpse, Billy Corgan

Here’s a video Promute did for an installation in Taos, NM that Ben Link Collins had.

I think I posted on here about it a while back, but the funding for the Rivulets music videos/short films is going pretty well.  If you’ve always wanted to get Nathan to write a personal song for you, here’s your big chance.

I got the layout finished for the Bottle Comics.  I also got a bartender friend to try to acquire some bottles for me.  So I’m pretty stoked about that everything is finally seeming to smooth out for the project.  Now all I need to do is figure out a way to get people interested in putting money towards it.  So if any of you readers could tell your friends about it or post it on any forums you take part in or whatever, I’d appreciate it.

I got started on working on the Panthan EP.  The songs are a lot better than I anticipated.  I haven’t listened to them in at least three years, so I guess that’s part of it.

I also unexpectedly found myself working up a Butterfly Corpse EP.  I’m needing to change the band name of course since I found out that was taken.  I’m thinking of “Unspeakable Forces.”  What do you think?  I’m kinda surprise that it seems to be an available band name when things like Butterfly Corpse & Unicorn Blood are taken.

There’s been this buzz the past couple of days about Billy Corgan talking crap about Pitchfork (it’s on the second page).  I feel like he’s the first guy that I’ve seen made by the establishment who isn’t saying, “I don’t understand why people don’t give their music away & let the fans pay what they want, the creme will rise to the top.”  Which is a total crap statement when you are already on the top in the current state of the industry.  I understand his disdain that music doesn’t seem super-important or rebellious to teens like it was in the 1990s.  I also understand people thinking he’s a dick because no individual person feels they are a hipster & think he’s out of touch, especially given that I think it’s a safe assumption that he’s a hipster.  Crap, I guess depending who you ask I’m a hipster too.

    I forget what i was reading but it was about back in the day when people put ads on boards looking for other musicians. So the metal & punk flyers would always say NO POSERS. But really who would read that and go, “i’m a poser so i shouldn’t call them”

    RSmith, got a lot of shite for saying the Radiohead paywhatyouwant model was stupid and only works because they were already one of the biggest bands in the world. Complete with the “you jealous cuz your band isn’t relevant anymore” commentary. I personally think this and his other rant that got some traction awhile ago were pretty spot on, but much like his music, his delivery does nothing for me.
