rip blogs

Sadly, this is turning out to be pretty true. Third hand information, but I heard through a friend of a friend this weekend that he got a cease and desist email for posting album covers on his blog.

tbh this kind of thing has looked like an inevitability for at the very least 4-5 years now. i tried to stop posting anything that might make my sites a target way back then, i just hope they're only really paying attention to things that were posted recently but i don't know if that's naive to think.

I think that rather than being shut down for sharing mp3s he might have been shut down by the pharma hack. Giving him a tweet... maybe it helps.

Back up now, so maybe not an RIAA thing.

No, remember that MBV group of blogs that Ryan Catbird put together? Well, the hosting went out and Ryan was incommunicado.

heh i just got a DMCA complaint notification on my blogger account. of course it doesn't say WHAT post they took down, but it's probably a really old one from years ago when i sporadically posted mp3s. anyone have an idea how at risk i am for getting the whole thing taken down or if i should just start deleting any old expired mp3 link just to be safe, or is this all guesswork right now?

this actually seems pretty dumb to me. o god, what will happen if everyone can be an mp3 blogger.

lo, we will look back on the golden age of mp3 blogging, where people downloaded just one or two tracks and then forgot about them.

remember when that one critic dude put up his mp3 playlists as albums of the year in pazz & jop? that was truly mind-blowing.

Adams: There’s no problem with it, but I do think you need to have listened to a certain amount of music to be able to state that something is the best thing around right now.

If writing about music is like “dancing about architecture,” as the now-hackneyed phrase would have it, music blogging is like walking through buildings with an architectural expert.

wait wouldn't that be reading music blogs?

the late great, Tuesday, 8 May 2012 19:18 (1 year ago) Permalink

ha yes.
i dunno, i've enjoyed some mp3 blogs like anyone else, but giving the these bloggers some kind of mystical "tastemaker" status is seriously the lamest thing. who cares.

tylerw, Tuesday, 8 May 2012 19:22 (1 year ago) Permalink

they were tastemakers for about five minutes when the taste was mash ups and bedroom electro pop

the late great, Tuesday, 8 May 2012 19:30 (1 year ago) Permalink

not to be a dick but as one of the early guys with this nonsense, i don't even really remember drowning in sound?
the "tastemaker" thing was by far the dumbest aspect of this miniblipmovement.

i don't know drowning in sound either.
yeah, i liked this "movement" because it let people share their own little niches of musical interest, not because i wanted to hear the latest brooklyn band.

i remember Drowned in Sound as an unreadably ugly Britishes Indie site tbh

the only thing worse than people conflating the importance of "tastemaking blogs" in 2005 was the inflated sense of self worth ILX had about its importance in 2004

i ran into an old friend who tried to convince me the "tastemaker" thing mattered and he referenced a few bands i wrote up early on in their careers and when i went to look the posts up, I found google had pulled a LOT of my old posts
