i get spammed sometimes, i delete it all pretty quickly and i dont complain because usually its kind of my own fault. im public, not just on this site, but on broke b-boys and other sites as well. i display myself as involved in music and i am a proud consumer. so i get spammed at my different addresses. even here i open myself up to have emails sent to me at any time from real human beings. well i got this spam today from some group claiming that i joined their mailing list. i think i would remember that. unless i was very drunk. then i wouldn't remember that.:

its all good really... im not clicking anything unless i requested it. but! on several occassions there were email addresses listed. so i checked the website:
what a blast. there is plenty of real undiscovered artists on there with their music listed and others just posted by people who are fans. and here i was going to listen to old time radio while i did my work today. some of it is very good and some of this stuff is hilarious!
for example, Bernadette Couture. i know what she's trying to do and she's not doing it yet. i might be eating my words later (or never). but i think she might need to stick to singing the backgrounds for rap doods.
now, with no previous exposure other than that site, im going to try and find out more about Dahlak now. i was very impressed by the very little i found.
Lone Catalysts doesnt even exist, if you were wondering. well it exists, theres just nothing there. im still trying to figure out if i fully believe i didnt give these guys my email.
