Hey teamo. Real quick follow up to yesterday’s #musicblogocide2k10 conversation, there are two articles up about it that may be of interest to you, one by Song By Toad and one at The Guardian. Good reads and worth a few minutes of your day.
Look, when the DMCA sends a notice to a record label’s blog telling them that THEY are in violation by posting their own music… Well, something ain’t right. Yes, Blogger’s actions were cold, blind, and mean, but they aren’t the root of the problem, just the nagging pain when I do this. Are the labels/artist not telling the DMCA what they are doing & giving away? Does the DMCA just not care? Exactly “who” is the DMCA? A ragtag band of music guardian angels out to save the music world one mean blog at a time?
Yeah, DMCA is a law, but someone’s using it to cause a ruckus where no ruckus should be!!!
Anyways, for now, TSURURADIO continues HOOOOO!
As does old man fucking winter… Jeezy, snow, snow, snow, cold, cold, cold. Fuck it. I rode my bike. So nyah, Mr. Winter. But with the cold and snow and the delightful fire after coming in from it, comes the cocooning, near-melancholy, beauty that is Similes by Eluvium.
C’mon. I deserve at least 2 internet points for THAT segue, right?
Can’t say I’m all that familiar with Matt Cooper’s work. According to wiki, it’s usually ambient instrumental. Personally, when it comes to ambient instrumental, I prefer sounds of the rainforest or whales singing. Eluvium seems to like it to because I swear in “Cease To Know” I heard a blue whale bringing the heat.
Yes, this is ambient, it’s peaceful, and it’s absolutely lovely. It’s a blanket, maybe even a quilt, you know, the kind passed down from generation to generation, with a certain smell that’s all your own, wrapped up all tight.
I just reeeeally want a snow day.
Either way. Beautiful. Enjoy!
