I updated the Brad Sucks Digital Download Store to v.0.02. Some people have been paying me for hosted installations (which is SWEET) so I’ve been able to take the time to put in some fixes and also add international currency support in the config options.

I also put it on Google Code so you can use SVN to check it out, submit issues, etc. Questions about installation and stuff go in the forums.

Well, after having it pointed out to me that it’s at least a good idea to get in front of people who might like my music, I’m now on Sellaband.

My original nitpicking about Sellaband is still valid I think, but I guess we’ll see. Have a read through the comments of that post for some rebuttals to my cynicism.

Three years ago I posted about my experience with OfficeMax. I guess it was high up there in searches for “OfficeMax sucks” and became somewhat of a search honeypot. Since then I’ve received countless angry emails about the replies to the post. From OfficeMax managers who were slandered demanding me to remove posts, to OfficeMax employees who mistakenly slandered their managers under their real name demanding me to remove posts, to the (I guess) OfficeMax-employed trolls defending OfficeMax, it’s been a wild and interestingly retarded ride.

Today, after 765 replies (and I’m pretty sure zero albums sold to angry OfficeMax employees), I’ve turned off comments for that post. Spread your wings and fly, disgruntled OfficeMax employees. I’m sick of hearing from you! Please go away forever!

Other search honeypots I’m aware of on bradsucks.net:

There’s Something Wrong – Get one fan in Sweden, attract many more searching for “sweden sucks” I guess. What’s there to hate about Sweden?

Record Deals – I’m not sure search this is popular for, but if anyone’s looking for a white teenage rapper who can’t spell, you might want to check out the comments.

So I got a Wii a few days ago and it’s great of course. But I think the best part is watching other people play it for the first time. I took it over to my parents’ tonight and watching my mother beat the hell out of a boxer, well, it just about brought tears to my eyes.

If I have a complaint it’s the lack of online multiplayer. I’m pretty good at tennis now and I desire to kick international ass.

I just posted a quick faster demo of There’s Something Wrong. Trying to find the right feel for this sucker.

I like how previously rare or hard to reproduce things like Dark Side of the Rainbow are just plain on Youtube these days:

I had never seen it before and it works amazingly well. Just enough sync to make it seem meaningful. More links:

Magnatune & I will soon be putting out a double CD of Creative Commons-licensed ccMixter remixes of songs off I Don’t Know What I’m Doing. It’s a pretty awesome project that shows a lot of the super wickedness that can come out of the Creative Commons. Only hitch right now is: OMG we need album art!

I have no visual arts talent, so I’d really appreciate some help. I need four pieces of artwork: the cover, reverse side of the cover, tray card (back) and the CD itself.  (If you need the dimensions they’re here under jewel case print dimensions.)

The title is “Mixter Two: Brad Sucks / I Don’t Know What I’m Doing“. Even if you (like me) have no artistic skills, you could contribute by rifling through the Creative Commons Search (particularly Flickr) for photos or drawings that might make good album art material (make sure to check the two boxes at the top for photos that can be remixed & used commercially).

I don’t have much to offer other than eternal peace in heaven. We’ll credit you on the album and I’ll send you some CDs and buttons and maybe a letter explaining how nice I think you are.

Post anything you got in these comments, my forums or email me directly. Thank you!

Wow, check out this Stevie Wonder Drum Solo.

I already knew he played the drums on a lot of his recordings, but it’s still awesome. [via kristin]

Making The Hypothetical Band is pretty funny. Choose Your Own Adventure books as band names. Asher Sarlin is a favorite of mine, his Elephantitis of the Mind comic is funny.

Had one of those “this is all garbage, maybe I should bail on this album and start over fresh” musical panic attacks yesterday. So I think I’m right on track to release my second album around 2010.
