Songtradr promised to “continue to operate Bandcamp as a
marketplace and music community with an artist-first revenue
share.” According to Songtradr’s own announcement,

it will offer artists “the ability and choice to have
their music licensed to all forms of media including content
creators, game and app developers and brands” including
Epic Games, which will continue to collaborate with Bandcamp
on projects like Fortnite Radio.

i was thinking about that. apparently they let themselves be
bought because they needed scaling capabilities. and i think
xlt has some server capacity to spare, as it's not too busy
these days. in other words: a perfect plan

[reply to thred] i actually had no idea tim sweeny
owns it. he generally seems alright but i suspect he saw the
writing on the wall; thot, "alright, now is the time to
sell" and it was likely the correct business decision, but
it will go about as well for bandcamp as it will for someone
sold to a gulag as a prostitute.

[background for reply to reply to thred] i've kept
thinking, recently ~ "i should just make up my own store
page. i have loads of circuit bent shit i've long bored of
and want it for a benjamin? sold. sort of like a garage sale
frozen in amber, for anyone who wants perfectly good stuff
i'm not using just let it sit there no rush. not like
fucking ebay"

[reply to reply to thred]i could also, actually, set
up my own personal bandcamp-ripoff mini-size. could
theoretically do everything bandcramp does -- the preview
streams, purchase, choice of download. why does no one do
this?

[answering my own rhetorical question] because
bandcramp is/was a loose community of sorts
[crabby]and the icons appear for support and i've
long squinted and said "if everyone just buys each others'
shit who makes money except bandcramp?" and if it were just
a paypal form people wouldn't buy each others' stuff like
that and paypal wouldn't rinse the fees like the same dollar
turning over repeatedly on bandcramp and

[i've lost my train of thought because i have another
good question and answer it NOW!#!]
fuck. what's a good
paypal replacement too?

[that reminds me] [ubuntu] i'm ready to
bludgeon mark shuttleworth with a scottish toilet

just having a closer look

The online independent music platform Bandcamp — the
single best place to buy digital music, in my humble
opinion! — has just laid off 16% of its staff, and
announced that it had been sold from Epic Games to
Songtradr, a "music licensing, sonic branding, social
media,
and compliance management" company that handles music "for
content" and "monetization."

alright, this is like -- fuck you with not just a
horsecock,
but an entire horse. the idea here is obviously, "people
are
getting AN ENTIRE DOLLAR PER SONG on bandcamp; we're
letting
money sit on the table by not forcing them into the spotify
business model, in which only taylor swift gets paid for
re-recording all her songs because profit"

i think i might delete most of it because.... eventually,
it'll be like WE UPLOADED ALL YOUR SHIT TO SPOTIFY TO HELP
and you have to "opt out" to stop this from happening and
it
will quietly sneakily happen one day just like when i
discovered youtube had turned on "allow sampling for $$
youtube profit" on all my vids somewhere in the dead of
night

and not only do i have to remember to keep an eye on this,
but they tend to drop it like "ON BY DEFAULT" so there's a
brief legal window where they can fucking thieve all your
shit and best delete it. on the note of youtube -- 2024
will
be a sad year

entire teams of incredibly expensive lawyers have had very
serious conversations about how to quietly fuck people who
think like you out of the rights to absolutely everything.
you'll get "paid" $0.07 and this won't meet the payout
threshold so according to terms of contract they just pocket
all of it. and give some to taylor swift to demonstrate they
actually pay artists

Discord should buy Bandcamp and integrate it so each artist
gets a server with bonus material etc., and fans get tiered
access for buying music

if fans buy nitro they get to use special artist stickers
and emojis and the artist gets a cut

if i work really hard i can get some good gear and support
myself that way' and that's gone now." and you can get
behringer 303 as kind of a consolation prize but the real
price is time; expenses are such that i cannot realistically
pour myself into it like i so deeply want to and not have my
ass thrown out on the street. then i have the audacity to be
like, "well so what that's how it is i guess, could someone
just ship me a 16-track tape, no questions asked? because
you'd get better stuff out of me" and no fuck off. and when
discord finally monetizes shit tony danza will be crushed

lol

Epic I'm sorry for jerking your chain about Discord, it's
because you always have these boutique concerns, it's pure
tokenism. Yes Discord is "bad" because they want to make a
profit and they'll eventually turn on the users or sell out
to Microsoft or Facebook or whatever. So what? That's
everything, ever, always, under capitalism.

Same thing with your concerns about burritos, Linux distros,
GPUs and so on. You don't get the underlying commonality:
that everywhere and always under capitalism, the practical
use of a product by the end user is at war with price and
profit.

This is why every consumer product is beshitted over time.
Shrinkflation, planned obsolescence, locking previously free
features behind a paywall, big fish eating little fish and
destroying the practical value of the little fish's product,
privacy violations, etc. etc.

And the reason you have no time to create with your ever
shittier toys is because time is money. Your time is where
excess profit is extracted at the other end, where goods and
services are produced. Periodically the workers must be
terrorized by high interest rates and high unemployment and
fear of homelessness. Unpaid overtime? No problem, boss!

The whole racket is based on squeezing you, the wage slave,
at both ends. And it's not about morally bad companies
making bad decisions. The companies that don't do this, that
don't grow and merge, disappear. Commercial Darwinism.
Capital accumulates, wealth concentrates.

Everything I know about Marxism I got from used bookstores
and pirated texts from libgen. Please for the love of dog
read something.

...and what are you doing about it, other than telling me
i'm fucked in a condescending, academic manner? same as how
RDJ ruminates in some interview, "it used to be, 'maybe if i
work really hard i can get some good gear and support myself
that way' and that's gone now." and he's sad and showing
solidarity while still collecting checks

i mean, i get the concept of value creation. it worked
before, i think, because there was value to me in creating
music, sharing it. bending things, posting videos, seeing it
show up on matrixsynth. it felt like it might go somewhere
someday, but underneath it all, i met a lot of cool people
who talked with me just normal back and forth and came to
appreciate my stuff. but that feels kind of dissolved into
miasma now, as does the idea that my stuff will get
anywhere. i suspect people do value my music, art, writing,
code, whatever, some of it -- but they have no money to
support me on it and so, like, i haven't quit music, but why
bother sharing it with anyone? enjoy the end of the internet
you smug prick. rdj will have all the money but he'll have
to spend all day jerking off because everyone else
entertaining has packed up and left

I HAVE SO MUCH MORE and who cares

like here is my bird lamp

it is one of those three-stage dimmer lamps. touch the metal
bird anywhere to navigate the riced out state machine: off,
low, mid, hi, off, lo, mi, hi

i found that bird at the town dump. it was a sad pewter
peacock that was mysteriously missing the head. i live in a
sort of augmented reality, and i saw a light bulb
superimposed onto this crap headless pewter peacock and i'm
telling my dad i'm going to make a bird lamp and putting it
in the car before he can even process what is going on. then
it took me, perhaps, five or six years to actually fucking
do it, but IT IS PERFECT.

i went to no less than six thrift shops and bought as many
lampshades. it was so hard to find the right one. then soft
lighting and photographed it next to a luke vibberts record
for my Riced Out Modern Living line.

the lamp sold for like $300 to someone i chatted with online
who absolutely loved it to death and this is how art is
supposed to work: it's a stupid idea that i eventually got
around to despite all spazzy odds, it's really not worth
$300, i probably put $3000 of time into it, and everyone is
thrilled to death with the situation.

but now something something etsy free ship or banhammer and
ye gods fuk^ov

i have two (2) broken [broken] korg monotron delays because
i'd rinse them hard as aux sends all day and they're small

miss that as an aux send so bad. and it would be worth the
hours of cursing into a magnifying lamp to bodge these two
broken ones together, there's space and a power supply
inside my spring reverb driver [with steiner-parker

loafing about. and i could.... that thing with some vhs tape

and i would slam trax with that frankenstein and it could

wouldn't the world be nicer if i could build my infernal

HOW SUSPICIOUS! the mit technology review rehashing my
posts, a week later

LAZY_TITLE

The internet also exists outside these big platforms;
it’s blogs, message boards, newsletters and other media
sites. It’s podcasts and Discord chatrooms and iMessage
groups. These will offer more individualized experiences
that may be wildly different from person to person. They
often exist in a sort of parasitic symbiosis with the big,
dominant players, feeding off each other’s content,
algorithms, and audience.


then we get to something else i said that someone else
said:

Anil Dash has been repeating the same thing over and over
for years now: that people should buy their own domains,
start their own blogs, own their own stuff. And sure, these
fixes require a technical and financial ability that many
people do not possess.


and alright this is fair, he seems to have the drop on me
here by a few years. it's mostly that i was lazy and i stuck
with bandcamp until i felt my ears pop from the other shoe
starting to drop

is it just fun to run the discord? what are your motives?
how are you anything over than the hallucinogenic spores
that cause people to wander into the mucus cave as docile
sheep? [cite: x-files 6x21]

big had it right fussing around with federated stuff if you
want to construct a life raft. but did you read the
article?

The big idea is that in a future where social media is
more decentralized, users will be able to easily switch
networks without losing their content and followings. “As
an individual, if you see [hate speech], you can just leave,
and you’re not leaving your entire community—your entire
online life—behind. You can just move to another server
and migrate all your contacts, and it should be
okay,”


so it's like discord except without tony in charge, i guess
-- doesn't that sound so much better?

or maybe you're more like princess leia leading everyone
down the garbage chute into a trash compactor?

and the only thing that saves thad from being tentacle lunch
is that whatever that thing was, it has more of a clue
than...

i guess princess leia didn't comprehend that 200 year-old
economic texts may not actually apply to the internet; that
trying to jam a billion people into a twitter or a facebook
was always doomed. that people need to run a bunch of
servers, or it needs to be $$ to pay for the servers, and in
the gap, i dunno, i guess princess leia wants to be queen of
The Sharper Image at the mall and imagine living your whole
life in there as a sort of purgatory

2025. discord will be fucked in or by 2025

bandcamp will throw the shit lever approximately one (1)
business year after epic sold bandcamp


[best practice in the tech industry is to digest a recent
acquisition in the belly of the sarlac for one (1) business
year and determine what, actually, you've gotten yourself.
you reassure everyone that you really actually will leave it
as an independent unit. then, precisely a year later,
changes are announced. people are scrambled into separate
existing teams, or perhaps even let go (but that's typically
2-4 quarters later)]

even if it kills them -- like, they are so fucking balls to
the wall with that, it might kill them, they'll see it
killing them, and they STILL will not give that shit up
until The Year Of The Linux Desktop is like "Hey, wait...
you're not kidding?"

but i think mark shuttleworth wants to IPO 2024, which puts
ubuntu's enshittification a year too early to capitalize on
the (partial? total? narrowly dodged?) collapse of the
windows ecosystem. what's the right value model for ubuntu?
whatever looks good for an IPO

that 200 year-old economic texts may not actually apply
to the internet


lol

Epic, everything you've written about Discord, Bandcamp etc.
testifies that they do apply, at least in the case of
texts by Marx and Engels. They do, in fact, apply more
urgently now than when they were written, when capitalism
was still emerging.

You still don't seem to grasp that I agree with every one of
your criticisms, but that these are merely particular
cases.

All you're doing is yelling at one or two squiggles on the

video is hard, tho

like, words. take words -- they're cheap. one could say,
"why should i pay a subscription fee to write content for
medium.com when wordpress can send me emails about itself
all day and try to sell me premium plugins?"

re-encoding video into a giant fan of technically specific
tiers, gauging someone's connection and pairing them up with
the right level, then -- OUCH the bandwidth

in this sense, youtube may be unkillable, simply because
unless we call go fucking UUCPtube and everyone pitches in
with their spare 900mb of fiber, i do not see any reasonable
decentralized solution. like, you can't build a football
stadium by putting a part of it into the garden of every
citizen in town. you have to build it all at once

have you ever thought about the carbon costs of streaming?
taylor swift is putting a goatse-grade hole in the ozone
layer; people streaming re-recorded versions of old songs
over and over and over when they could just download the
song once. or, ideally, not listen to it at all

also marx lived like a typical xltronicon

quote:
In his private life he is a highly disorderly, cynical human
being and a bad manager. He lives the life of a gypsy, of an
intellectual Bohemian, washing, combing, and changing his
linen are things he does rarely. He likes to get drunk. He
is often idle for days on end, but when he has work to do,
he will work day and night with tireless endurance.

For him there is no such thing as a fixed time for sleeping
and waking. He will often stay up the whole night and then
lie down on the sofa, fully dressed, around midday and then
sleep till evening, untroubled by the fact that the whole
world comes and goes through his room.

...

There is not one clean and solid piece of furniture to be
found in the whole apartment: everything is broken, tattered
and torn; there is a thick coat of dust everywhere;
everywhere, too, the greatest disorder.

i had a livejournal but some people on livejournal had their
own journal sites and i was like THAT'S SWANK and so at 16
my first proper actual thing with PHP was my own blog
software. which, actually, would still work fine!

...but wordpress was not always such a monster. it offered
stuff like [a GUI editor when i wrote HTML, a comment system
linked to inter-site troll platform, and akismet anti-spam
to dial the comment system back into a usable state] and
alright

it seemed fine to me as little as a few years ago, but i go
in now and it's all a horrible broken mess of "subscribe to
premium" and, well, that's a tempting thought! but i think i
will actually take this whole platform out back and shoot it
because my shitty PHP i wrote in high school is actually
more secure

He likes to get drunk. He is often idle for days on end,

sleeping and waking. He will often stay up the whole night
and


still with marx here

then lie down on the sofa, fully dressed

i would never fucking sleep on the sofa. marx and i are at
odds now

around midday and then sleep till evening

well who doesn't

untroubled by the fact that the whole world comes and
goes through his room


...and, oh, shit. this is not me. this is the guy who i was
roommates with in college who never showered, or cleaned,
and just wore boxer shorts and a t-shirt and people would be
looking at him weird and i'd think "oh right they're not
used to that"

i clean things up. i have ordered zones [including zones for
disorder]. people stay the fuck out of my room. i dropped
acid and got depressed about the church-turing thesis; the
other guy had some cute girl come over to help dye his hair
and then she flipped a shit and kind of ran off and his hair
looked weird for... well, the rest of that college year. and
that's marx vs. me

i hope this helps your simulation of xlt

how do i cut paypal out of the loop?

from the dark ages it was like "something something shell
out for a merchant account" but effectively is it still
possible to process credit card payments without PayPal or
Square or (coming soon!) Everything Payments on The Site
Formerly Known As Twitter

i mean, then i wouldn't be able to accept paypal. but not
having to pay, or think about, paypal's shit, that sounds
great

then you're set up on that; you've some URL to ring people
up and the rest of it can be whatever the fuck you want

but the dark age neurons tell me this "merchant account" was
like "something something setup fee $1k" and well, now that
you mention it, i still don't have a plan here, and that was
the early 00s i was reading this with no plan like it would
actually make sense someday. it's not naive hope, it's more
like some idea for a modular patch you never quite have a
reason to execute

WHY IS DISCORD A GOOD IDEA

don't care lol.

You know why we settled on Discord when Zilty was down for
weeks at a time? Only because Umbro had already made one,
and because it did the job.

You have a hate boner for Discord solely because people
gained the ability to mute you, and were doing so, and
saying what a relief it was.

And since you're a big dumb narcissistic baby who can't
handle that, you're jerking off about cyber liberty like
Wired magazine circa 1997.

Sad!

OSX's Chess.App has also just made the list. Chess? Does it
have a computer oppo- and, shit, it's asking me to sign in?
I try to abort, but now I am signed into Chess.App with my
Apple account, and I cannot figure out, for the life of me,
how to log back out of Chess. Does this mean I am logged in
elsewhere in OSX? Have I just consented to all sorts of data
sharing because I opened fucking Chess.App and didn't have
the sense to Force Quit as soon as I saw a login?

At this point, I am just kind of quietly: you fucker, you
fucker. The point I got properly annoyed was when I realized
how impossible it is to simply delete Chess.App. It may even
been a signed component of the OS and if I go in there with
Kali linux and a brillo pad and manually scrub the bits away
it will probably just be like INVALID SIGNATURE REINSTALL
OSX

checkmate. fine. have it. still beats windows

tony i don't understand why you bring up discord in all of
my threads. nor why you can't answer a simple question: WHY
IS DISCORD A GOOD IDEA?

i'll wait until after your chai enema if you need a moment
