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.

Digital Meltd0wn on Twitter

After hearing constant buzz about the phenomena known as Twitter, I've finally decided to give it a try. When I first read about Twitter, I thought it was a useless idea, as I'm sure many others have. However, I noticed a few users who were able to put the service to good use by being original, and I thought perhaps I could do the same. At the moment I'm only using it to post updates to my blog, but if enough people are interested in following me on Twitter, I will eventually incorporate other ideas. Of course if no one is interested, then I will eventually abandon this idea. So without further ado, here is the Twitter page for Digital Meltd0wn:

I think Twitter can be a good way to communicate short idea/ info (as you have started off doing), but there are a lot of people posting "just picked my nose" kind of posts, too.
I've had an account for about a month, and am trying to figure out how I'll use it too.
Anyhum... I'm following you on there, now.

Thanks for the feedback, and for being my first follower on Twitter. I completely agree with you. Far too many people use the service to post irrelevant/uninteresting information. I've only made a few updates, but so far I've been using it to inform people of albums that I add here, as well as the blogs that I add to the DM blogroll.

The fact that you are limited to 140? characters forces one to be creative if they expect to maintain their followers interest. Hopefully I can manage to be one of the creative few.
