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.
I finally decided to break down and create a Facebook page for Digital Meltd0wn @ http://facebook.com/digitalmeltd0wn. I created a personal account a few years ago, and I just didn't feel as if Facebook had been developed enough at that point to warrant further use. I decided to give it another chance after hearing many people rave about its usefulness. After exploring it for several hours yesterday, I realized that they have made vast improvements to the service. I created an account for Digital Meltd0wn, as well as a personal account, a few days ago.
Since last.fm has been a continuous disappointment lately, and there seems to be a mass exodus from Myspace, I plan to focus the majority of my social networking activity on Facebook, and here are a few ideas you can expect to see implemented soon. Updates from both this blog, as well as the Digital Meltd0wn Music Aggregator/Blogroll, there. I also plan to publish a mirror of the Digital Meltd0wn Blogroll in it's own tab, display the most recent posts from our music blog aggregator RSS feed in a separate tab, and upload some interesting music videos and pictures. I hope you all enjoy these features, and please recommend me any ideas you may have to make the page better.
Since I'm behind on the Facebook learning curve, I was hoping that some of you who are more familiar with the service could offer me some advice and recommendations. I'll be doing my own research, but I hope that some of you can help to quicken the learning process for me. I've put together a wishlist of sorts for Facebook. If some of you could spare the time to provide me with some recommendations I would greatly appreciate your willingness to help. Here is my Facebook wishlist:
• Useful music/blogging related applications • Applications/tutorials for customizing my page • Interesting Facebook music groups • Independent artist/labels on Facebook • Music bloggers on Facebook • Interesting people who enjoy sharing music recommendations
Again, I would be extremely greatful if any of could could help me with any of the things listed above. I look forward to seeing some of you on there, and hopefully exchanging music with you in the discussion group.
