“Don’t bother arguing that I’m not supporting the right type of music, ‘If a kid auto-tuned his dogs bark and sang to it, I would be amazed and think it’s awesome’ and that’s a fact.”
I do like to play a lot of music here in word-press and even on twitter. Some people may take this choice of music as an indication of what kind of bands and music I promote. So when I play bands like Abney Park, they can only conclude that I have lost the plot.
1) I don’t just promote music, I promote a whole bunch of things ranging from programming computers, science, space exploration, the space elevator, Helium-3, going back to the Moon, the international space station, particle physics, CERN, role-playing games, game design, art, fashion and so on. Abney Park belongs to the Steam Punk genre and yes I think their music is awesome for that reason alone.
2) I also promote website-design, businesses, volcaloids, site-pal, auto-tune and a whole bunch of stuff that will help you entertain others and present a fun profile to others who read your stuff and communicate with you. If a kid auto-tuned his dogs bark and sang to it, I would be amazed and think it’s awesome and probably better then any of U2’s stuff (well, unless he too has a song out to the tune of a dog barking…).
3) I like to appeal to the widest possible audience. That means I often end up not sharing stuff that might be acceptable in many places, or all places in the world. This is a very long topic and more details can be found here: ☆ The legitimate(?) stuff I reject [article]: http://wp.me/p10Tww-1Tf
4) I use this site and even twitter for market research. I don’t want to talk about, or promote myself. I want to talk about you and promote your stuff. This is a learning experience for me that will, and is helping me develop my own business. I never had to define myself as a brand before and wow now I have–awesome!!!

I suppose ‘Branding” reflects the need to say, yes I do want to promote you, but I can’t mask my interests and enthusiasm for various material even when I avoid taking the stage and lime-light myself. This word-press document and my tweets need to have some form, a reflection of aspects of who I am and a structure behind them. Otherwise the thing that makes my posts interesting would be featureless and boring.
Finally, I’m not about knocking the quality of your music and art! I want you (well everyone) to make your videos & music (hopefully using vocaloid software, Miku and Auto-Tune if you can not sing so good). I would also love to see you dancing and singing with a life sized Miku, but I suppose we all can’t be Miku fans (I will always think Miku looks cuter then you, sorry).
Here is a video about auto-tune that might encourage you to reach out and make that song and video:GarageBand AutoTune – How To Sound Like T Pain Kanye West: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aN1X_H2zjg
Oh, here is a video showing someone dancing with Miku (she is the cute one with the blue hair ♥♥♥ ):
Also get with the times creative people, you no longer have to do that solo with one instrument; now you can do a collaboration with others that you have never met over the internet!!! Look these people did it:
Here are some cool people who did a the equivalent of a multitrack recoding of themselves:
- Antwaan – Map Of The Problematique (Muse cover) , his website is at http://www.antwaan.net/
- Do What You Want – Nataly Dawn covers OK Go
