A short comment on links

On the right side of my blog, a little bit lower, no up, up, that’s left… fool, I said my blog not Ashley Tisdale’s webpage… aah, you got it :D … there are some little pictures that, as soon as you click them, lead to other pages. These are blogs or pages I regularly visit and love.

I would also like to encourage you to click on the „I love Binaerpilot“ link. BP always helds the link wars to bring people on his webpage. In 2008 I was on place 3 (!!!) but I don‘t wanna talk about last year. And this year there seems to be a cheater. I already created about 450 clicks to Binaerpilot and the guy on place one seems to have created more than 10k!!! I can‘t believe that it is done by normal clicks. 10k clicks in only 2 months seems to be unrealistic. In first place you should click on the Binaerpilot link because he is doing great music and also builds a cool world around his stuff! In second place you should click it to bring me up. The winner of „Link Wars“ receives a cool price. I think a handsigned CD or such.

Some of the pages are also my sources. Most of the time I have read about the stuff I write on those pages. And to give them back a little bit, just click on them, read what they write and hug them in mind :)

So far…

Amazing. Hope I can even get higher than place 100. Next goal: the Top 10!!!

so what was the dream? :)

I don‘t remember. I just had that name in mind when I woke up. But I guess it is because I read about her Polybius project some time ago in GEE magazine. But this was days ago. The weird thing is that I didn‘t know her face. It was only the name. Sometimes our mind plays tricks on us…

Flash Game – Monkey Kong

OMG, I‘m addicted. Addicted to a little simple Flash Game called „Monkey Kong“. The gameplay has nothing to do with Donkey Kong. You are a small ape that has to collect bananas. That’s all. No hazards, no enemies, just bananas, jumping and you. This game is FUN!!!

This is Raquel Meyers

Last night I slept so damn bad… and I dreamed such shitty things. And when I woke up this morning one name revolved in my head „Raquel Meyers“. She is one of the best visual artists in the world wide chip and retro scene and I really love her work. But in fact I never saw her face. So why the hell do I dream of her? Anyways. Here she is.

She is cute but definitly older than me. Besides I don‘t wanna start anything with her… gosh… where’s my mind today… it is the fault of the weather. Shitty weather, respect my authoritah!!!

Another RPM2010 status report

Oh boy… I‘m so done… mentally… I already said it in my blog on rpmchallenge.com (and here’s my RPM-Blog): I‘m fed up with making music. In the last 21 days I finished 8 tracks, I still have to write and record vocals for one song, make a field reording for the introduction, master everything a little bit, burn the CD, print and cut out the cover artwork that I didn‘t receive yet, put everything into an envelope and post it on Friday afternoon. HARD!!!

Well… I‘m glad when RPM2010 is over again. After that I will finish my next album „Tweakological Techniques“… hmm… I‘m saying this for ages… Motone is planning to do a remix of „Assembly Required“. I‘m going to ask him if he has time to do the mastering and I will release everything in one package. My RPM2010 album „Who Are You And Why Are You On TV“ (ot just WAYAWAYOT) will possibly be released on Jamendo again. I am really pleased how „Stock Music“, my RPM2009 album, is presented there. I don‘t like how the upload is managed on rpmchallenge.com: first of all you have to do it yourself. OK I admit, I would expect too much from the RPM team if I wanted them to upload hundreds of albums. But additionally you only can upload songs in 128 kbps which is a little low. I normally convert my songs with 160 kbps, Jamendo even offers 192 kbps which is more than I need.

Don‘t get me wrong, I‘m absolutly loving every single song I made for WAYAWAYOT so far. I‘m sure it will be even better than „Tweakological Techniques“. But only because the time span between the tracks I made on TT and WAYAWAYOT is rather big. I also tried many new ways of composing and sampling I didn‘t use on TT. Additionally I‘m working on TT for about 2 years now. And actually I think of dumping the most.

I‘m unsure about TT. I don‘t know if it is still my style. Maybe it doesn‘t show what „The MM Project“ sounds like in 2010… WAYAWAYOT does it much better. I also don‘t want to overwork everything. In fact, it is done. It just needs some little corrections and mastering… I will care for TT as soon as WAYAWAYOT is done completly.

Till then…

Motone @ Bitte8Bit

Some months ago I was interviewed by Thomas Dörflinger for his weekly radio show bitte8bit. In one of the last shows, Thomas interviewed Motone, a dear friend of mine. I haven‘t heard the show yet (hope I can do it at the weekend) but I‘m sure Motone talks about some interesting stuff. He is using NL 2.3 on a GB micro and I learned a lot from during the „micromusic get together“ in Berlin last year. Listen to it.

Because the blog-platform Blogsport.de is from Germany every single word in the Wordpress-engine was in German. I tried a lot to find certain word and translated them to English manually. But I couldn‘t find the word for the extended blog-posts. Now I found it and it looks like this: (read on…)

The MM Project – Now with Twitterfeed

There is a nice service on the net that automatically posts your RSS-Feeds to Twitter. I created an account and with this post it should be activated. So I don‘t have to post a new blog entry to Twitter manually anymore. Let’s see if it works. I‘m excited :)

I Fight Dragons sign major label contract

At the moment there is a discussion going on in the chipmusic scene. I don‘t follow it, I don‘t like this flaming and hating and cursing on things people can‘t change anyway! The reason for this discussion is that one of the best bands that uses chipsounds has signed a major label contract.

I just wanna say this little thing: Imagine you would get the offer, wouldn‘t you sign? Hell, I would! I mean, I heard it from Psilodump some years ago that he almost got signed. But he said that the label people wanted to change his music too much so he quit the contract. I don‘t know. I love it to work as an underground artist. But I am just doing music. I‘m not playing shows, I‘m not selling merch. There are certain thing I don‘t care about. I don‘t even care about getting famous, if somebody likes my music, fine! If not, go to hell. So I don‘t need a label contract. The small chipmusic scene is enough for me. My universe doesn‘t need to be too big.

If others want to be bigger and dare to deal with major label restrictions, OK for them. Courtney Love said one thing the best: „It’s a radical time for musicians, a really revolutionary time, and I believe revolutions like Napster are a lot more fun than cash, which by the way we don‘t have at major labels anyway, so we might as well get with it and get in the game.“ You can switch „Napster“ with any platform you want, last.fm, Soundcloud, even 8 Bit Collective and micromusic. Musicians don‘t need a major label as long as they accept not beeing in the charts, in all record stores and on the big stages all over the world. Beeing a small artist with a small fan base is OK. It is enough. But as long as you dare to deal with major labels destroying your vision of music, go for it!

And nobody ever said, earning money with indie-/underground-music is wrong. It just doesn‘t meet the points of view of many underground artists.
