so recently it is like denied you're merely stoked
a track you made ten years ago syncs up like the wizard of
oz with a track brian wilson made 40 years ago, and who
cares about cash, we just want to share? denied; denied

that i should have put out a bunch of EPs all along over
last two years; will do so now. worried about the same on
bandcramp. feeling just releasing a totally free album with
stuff like wind chimes that'd just get pulled.

in a rough sense, it is kind of a feeling like, "oh, fuck,
just please have this before i keel over, can we just get it
over with" and i have about 40 tracks like this

have you treid 123456?
if that doesnt work try to reconstruct from your recent PW,
when nowadays you use "L1z4rdsl1ckmyb4lls!" try "lizards"
or just reset you know...

oooh anyone ever used "reset password" as the password?
or will it break the internet?

excellent!

well all they can do is take it down,
if you upload it somewhere
and say "oh, you naughty boy"
you´re not selling any of it.

soundclot, just really feel it's going down the tubes,
slowly, boiling-a-frog style.

example: sometimes i'd come up with a better mix, and you
have to $ub$cribe to re-upload the source audio, but... you
could just delete the track -- losing the stats, the plays,
the likes, the comments -- and re-upload it with the same
URL. this struck me as utterly fair. now, they were
obviously like "we need more people to have paid accounts"
and they're finding little ways everywhere to take things
away and hide it behind a paywall... so, now it says "you've
already used this URL" which is obvious clear poop; i've
deleted it but you're still using DB storage to keep track
of a dead URL? no you're just trying to milk cash and no,
not gonna happen

this is about where someone is all "oh calm down" and "if
you don't like it, don't use it"

i guess people have a somewhat skewed perspective of me,
seeing me just through my xlt posts. this thread, others,
it's really just like "this is bothering me" "i want to
speak up about it" and then "xlt is really the only
appropriate file-folder i have for this" followed by "okay
i've said it, feel much better" and i can't recall
complaining about soundclot anywhere other than here, and
it's been a few months since i tore into them on here
anyways

maybe it's more fun if people just think i'm insane.

I guess the real problem I'm trying to solve... people ask,
"hey, link me your music" and I can text them 320k MP3s or
FLACs, and wait, can you play FLAC? and what's FLAC? and
soundclot is just a glossy phone-usable index in one link I
can send to people. I kept recent stuff on it, mixed in with
old tracks I was just in the mood to re-upload. Like,
generally, a good snapshot of where I've been and where I am
now.

But now, full of ads, them creating issues like "URL has
been taken" to drive signups, and lewis's mom can't figure
out how to play my wind chimes mashup because the mobile
site literally pastes ads over the play button. Somehow a
bunch of bots managed to navigate it though and "like" the
track

Bandcramp still seems alright and I should just put some of
this out into albums. Then the copyright stuff, yeah, I
think I should put it all on an album and release it as a
free download. I don't think Brian would mind no one's
making any money off this; that's soundclot's mistake:
Thinking there's actually money in my music

i decided on a decent compromise; i left up some wavestation
demos and then uploaded some, like... well, it's
"unrequested_riddim.wav" and listening to it, or what i
could of it, this does live up to its name; this was not
requested. then "sandwiches.wav" which is also, i dunno, it
lives up to its name, me saying sandwiches in various ways
through a delay pedal

that i probably won't bandcramp any of this and may as well
have a giiggig.g.giog

yes, exactly. i'm always out of space anyways, and time is
harmony, so just split it up into a bunch of little EPs and
some bigger ones and

then both "unrequested riddim" and "sandwiches" gave me a
solid laugh. like, this is not me uploading deliberate
complete poop, this is the deliberate complete poop that
somehow turned around and went back up the butt, like a
salmon in search of a mate
