Are DMCA take downs the end of Blogging? Well, I'll give you this GoldieLocks track at least...
It's probably worth noting that it's been nearly a month since I've posted.
First off I've got this pneumonia that I'm trying to shake. Apparently three different antibiotics haven't worked too well :) There are days where I've literally just sat in one position for nearly 16 hours I've felt so awful.
Second... I've been depressed. I haven't been able to put my fingers to the keyboard. I've been working on some stuff, but nothing I can actually put out for anyone to read, it just seems everything comes out crap. I thought getting fired would give me more time to write... in stead I'm staring at the ceiling.
And third, and perhaps most importantly to you the reader, my last post got taken down. It was a LONG post (because I'd been at DEMF/Movement and hadn't had time to write, right before I got really sick) which can still be found over at MOG. I told myself I wasn't going to post anything until I found out what happened to that post! I mean if it's a DMCA take down? This blog could get shut down...
Well, lo and behold, I finally got the notice about two days ago. IT TOOK THEM A MONTH TO SEND THE DAMN THING! And what pisses me off the most is there wasn't ONE thing on there that wasn't legit. It was all sent from the labels. Grrrrrrrr... GET YOUR SHIT STRAIGHT IFPI! Stop messing with legit blogs!
OK! On to the music... there's a podcast here I think you should check out. In turn I've got a GoldieLocks track for ya... pretty solid trade off yeah? I can't remember if we've really done a profile on her yet. I remember looking into her early work as a producer but I never expected her to be a solo artist. Might good stuff... read below to see how the podcast and the track go together :)
