If I missed your remix, please send it in again because I have no mind:

Thanks to all the remixers as always. You can get the source to a bunch of my tracks here. You can email them to me or put them on my CC Mixter page for instant gratification.

Crimewire is Louise W. Klinker’s proposed Limewire skin that reorganizes the P2P app into a different light. For instance instead of there being a “Library” of what you’ve downloaded, it’s called your “Criminal record”. Crimewire would track how much you owe each band and record label and you have a Justification Profile:

The last new function is the “Justification Profile”. This section is the most fictional part of CrimeWire and based upon a point system. When you input your salary, number of records in collection, amount of vinyl in collection, number of concerts you go to per year etc. it returns the amount of money it is fair for you to “steal” for per day.

I like it, it’s pretty funny. I’d also like to see aggregated stats of how much all downloads on the service are costing individual artists and labels, damage you’re doing to the economy, the amount you would be fined for the material you’ve uploaded and maybe how much you’re hurting Coldplay’s feelings.

Make a Scott Andrew video – make a video for Scott’s song Dark Corners, maybe win yourself an iPod shuffle.

Stay Free! has a great interview with Amy Sewell, writer and producer of the movie Mad Hot Ballroom, about the hell they had to go through to clear all the music in the movie:

If filmmakers have to worry about these things, documentaries will cease to be documentaries! What happens when the girls go shopping and there’s music playing in the stores? We were lucky because in our movie the music wasn’t identifiable, but otherwise what are we supposed to do: walk up to the store manager and say, “Excuse me but can you turn off your radio?”

I’ve been meaning to see this movie, I hadn’t even thought of this aspect. Very interesting.

For the next while I’ll be trying to do some interviews to promote my freshly-pressed professionally manufactured version of I Don’t Know What I’m Doing (read about it here).

I’ve tried to contact everybody that asked me for interviews in the past few months that I put off until I had something to talk about. Now I sorta do. If you haven’t heard from me or you would also like to hear my old man stories about times gone by, please get in touch.

The professionally manufactured I Don’t Know What I’m Doing CD is now available for ordering from my little Brad Sucks store. Thanks to everybody who pre-ordered — your albums have been shipped and now I’m pretty sure pressing the album wasn’t a total waste of time and money. And what more can a boy ask for.
