elcome to the Digital Meltd0wn Music Blog. The aim of this blog is to introduce the readers to music that is out of print, commercially unavailable, released under a creative commons license, or with approval by the featured artist. The majority of the music posted here would be considered underground. Don't let that fool you into thinking that the music featured here might be any less enjoyable than that of the mainstream artists you hear on the radio, as this couldn't be further from the truth. Please keep in mind that the majority of the artists that appear on this blog, along with their respective record labels, are not wealthy and need your support. If you enjoy the material that you find here, please support the artists/labels by purchasing their material afterwards. If you are an artist/label that would prefer to have your material removed from this blog, simply leave me a comment, and I would be more than happy to promptly remove the offending post. In addition to running this blog, I also work on a few other projects during my spare time. You can find links to those, as well as a few other important links associated with Digital Meltd0wn in the menu bar above.

Zombies ate my Network

As some of you may have already noticed, the Digital Meltd0wn social network is down at the moment. I'm sure that it isn't a problem with the host site (Ning) because all of the other networks hosted by them are still up and running. I fear that it may have been taken down due to some of the content on the network, but it is impossible for me to be sure at the moment. I have sent several e-mails to the Ning team, but I have yet to receive any type of response other than an automated e-mail informing me that "the Ning developers have received my inquiry and will address my concerns promptly". I will inform you of any news concerning the network as soon as I receive it, and should the network come back online, I will send out an e-mail to all of the members. If for some reason the network does not come back online, I will pursue other options for creating another community. I still have plans to get a domain for Digital Meltd0wn eventually, which would eliminate such problems in the future, but for the moment we can only wait.

Curious! At any rate, I am glad to hear that it was, perhaps, some sort of take down rather than an abandonment. Great job with all of the countdown posts! Head's up...I have recently suffered a hard drive failure resulting in the loss of the majority of my digital music collection. I am slowly getting my OS back in order, and will continue to post as I find time. This week I am on vacation. Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios, Hallowscream at Busch Gardens and SpookyEmpire's Ultimate Horror Weekend (where I hope to at least get a glimpse of Malcolm McDowell). ~P

Me and Roy have been going back and forth regarding what happened to the network. I too am glad to hear that it is something on the ning side of things rather than abandonment :)
Keep me in the loop regarding any relaunch please.

Aah, I see.
Well let's just hope your Feds aren't pouring over the content in too much detail - joke...?
Keep well. And keep up the good work: many of your horror posts are out of this world!
Shanti, roy

It disappoints me that some of you might think that I would abandon the network without any notice to all of the members there. I admit that the network wasn't as active as I hoped it would be, but I would never abandon any project of mine in such a way. I know that a lot of people, myself included, worked very hard to add content to the network, contribute to the forum, and customize their profiles. I would never do anything so blatantly disrespectful to the people who have placed such trust in me.

I still have yet to hear anything from anyone on the ning team. I will be sure to inform you all of any news concerning this matter as soon as it is made available to me.

No offense was meant by the comment, sorry if you took it that way. I figured that you would have said something if you planned on taking it down, but I wasn't sure what was up.
