ALSO!!!! Any future music I release will have remix stems and possibly samples available for easier remixing and sampling. I don't know if I will do that w/ `prefecture_audio i: beach` album tough. TBH I'm not sure I even have the source files any more. I tend to let source files disappear after a while due to not wanting to revisit them.

@thegibson Hey man I'm listening to Hackers.Town:2600 and I"m hearing one of my songs right now and this just feels really good. Like I teared up a little hearing my music somewhere. I really appreciate you sharing it. Thank you <3

I think self-hosting is the future of internet.
I dream of a future where everyone hold and backup their own internet data.
Does it sound realistic? what you guys think?

Also I release the music at a "Pay What You Want" level and I have a lot of medical bills right now so I would greatly appreciate if you:

1. take my music, sample it, remix it, listen to it, love it, share it and send people back to it.
2. Donate some $moneybuxxx$ to keep me alive.

Thank you.

You know how fascists and imperialists lie about Jewish people or Black people or migrants, not because they are mistaken about facts, but because they aren't trying to tell the truth?

A Nazi who spouts blood libel does not believe what she's saying is true. She's saying it because, were it true, it would be easier to justify what she plans to do to Jewish people.

A bigot who says "It's a dude" about me does not believe I'm a dude. He is dehumanizing me to justify the violence he means to do.

Do you listen to internet radio?

Do you appreciate artists who release works in CC licensing?

Do you like an eclectic mix of music?

Im really tired of people expecting me to work for free. I don't. Its not novel.

you know, working for money. It's how regular businesses run. Its regular. Sometimes even noncapitalists can run businesses too and have fair wages.

Someone who works does always deserve fair pay. Whether that pay is in hours in a timebank or cash, it is still paid and it is an agreed upon amount.

Mock a tree by sitting under it reading. Show it the possibilities of life
in another’s hand, show the book what stagnation
looks like for those who never leave their home town.
Feel smug in your ability to stretch a metaphor so far
as to want to nail the book to a tree and call it
“How I feel coming back home to being unloved after loving you”.
If love is a performance art, then so will my unloving be!
But,
In a way,
I mean. I am rootless now,
aren’t I?
Full of poetry - devoid of birds.

Dear kids in Washington State: you can make an appointment with your doctor, or walk into a clinic or ER, and get vaccinated. You don't need permission from your parents. You don't have to wait until you are 18. If the health care provider gets confused, the magic phrase is "Mature Minor Doctrine", and point out that not wanting to catch measles is sign of sufficient maturity.

Please reshare, and copypaste this any place this would be useful.
