Captcha torture and why I am more often on facebook

I spend more time here filling captcha boxes than listening. And this is not motivating me to be here more often than every 2 weeks. Others here spend their time to allow comments. Is it fun, buddies? On competiting sites I can just defan or block spam busters - "Hasta la vista, baby" - and that's it: On other platforms I am daily. And the system is respected by most: I don't have to block many - really just a handful. Rethink that, managment of Reverbnation :)

mails here

Dear friends, I thank you all for your positive opinion, that you send me secretely in mails.

I react to public, trackspecific comments here by listening to your tracks and commenting them trackspecifically. Publically. Not: secretly ;) *

Dear friends, I thank you all, who offer me opportunities in mails: I recommend to read my blogs about the industry before doing so;) *

Dear friends, I thank you all, who offer to follow me after I followed you on facebook, youtube etc: Just go ahead please: And do not forget to tell me under what identity you did so: Or I can't verify. If I can identify your impact: I will OF COURSE return. With the delay that is owed to verify and come back here. *

Dear friends, thank you for inviting me to your music in mails: I will listen to your music in return to your listening to mine: verified by your trackspecific, public comment here: and I will of course return that *

General: Dear friends: This is a PUBLIC platform. Please use it this way here - or you are stealing your own time. I avoid the unfriendly word "spam" here:

Thank you for understanding :)

My Playlists

Generaly speaking I have 3 of my regular albums on revnation currently (presented here in

playlists). They are in an order each that provides perpetual change between moods to keep you inside:) All three albums are equipped with the most of my musical style range each - again: for your entertainment.

I also have a fable for the dark - since reality is dark/light exactly 50/50.The world is not heaven - and it's not hell: it's a Yin-Yang of both.(My dark side is not much represented on revnation currently: go to the album "Ghostrider of Time and Space" on my website art-lip-music.org to find more of that please)

Additionally to the album lists I made lists of moods and genre/styles too: necessarily limited:

There will be more.

Collaborations: RN collaborations will be in the first slot, when they are fresh, then wander down weekly. Some will stay longer: but I want diversion and I made MANY (about 70) collabs with top musicians that are all worth the same. So I'll refeature some from time to time in my surprise tracks or collab-list.

"Surprise Tracks":

The content will be online here for limited times only - sometimes even not more than a day.

I use this: - to show my range - to feature collaborations and bands that I work/ed with or where/are member of - for "test balloons" to see what happens - to feature past works, that are LoFi, faultpested - but have their charmes

I usually don't extra feature these Surprise tracks currently here - they are a permanent part of my presentation.

Thank you for visiting me :)

Pay to be played or play to be paid: Dear Industry:)

It's very easy: in gold rush times, the diggers starved, while the dealers that sold them food and equipment went rich - very rich. I ! DON'T ! PAY ! To Be PLAYED!!!

I get payed to play!!! Or I better play FPS games again, watch tv, do some hobby music and present it to my relatives. I'm a musician and I am making music for more than 25 years now. I am open for fair deals with the industry in the above mentioned sense. Thank you for digging that:)
