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.

This belated thanks is long in coming, so please accept my regrets for not having expressed my appreciation sooner.

With a world of blogs & sites available to visit, I've found myself making sure that I never miss your extremely creative posts.

To be able to distinguish one's self from everyone else on the net is quite a feat - to be able to do so with such entertaining results is nothing short of a miracle.

The Meltdown aggregator is/was so well done - I'm sorry it was either too much with all of the other things you have in your life, I just wanted to let you know that it was appreciated for what it was - and what was it?

Well, to me, I simply found that upon initial perusal, the way you laid out the page worked so nicely for me and the way my eye-to-brain thing works - so easy to use & comprehensive.

I respect your decision to go in other directions, I just wanted to let you know that somewhere out there, there was a guy who thought highly of your effort.

That's it - I look forward to your music posts - I also appreciated the comics, etc. - I've read all the creepy, eerie stuff you offered up and also thoroughly got off on the Lights Out, etc.

I hope to continue to visit with you and look forward to what you have to share... I'm a fan - be safe and happy holidays to you and your loved ones

@Jeff: Most of the people that I am close to in real life do not understand my fascination for music, let alone share it. With that in mind, please know that comments such as yours mean the world to me. It is a good feeling to know that some people truly appreciate my efforts. Thank you so much for your kind words of encouragement. They do motivate me and encourage me to keep doing this, in spite of all the difficulties I face in my personal life.

I started the DM Aggregator/Blogroll because I know that there are many others who share my fascination for music, and may not have the resources available to them to find what they are looking for. Aside from that, at the time other blogrolls and aggregators neglected to categorize the blogs they listed according to genre, which always frustrated me a bit.

Fortunately I have good news for you. A friend of mine agreed to help out with the DM blogroll/aggregator. Unfortunately he isn't very familiar with the music blog scene, which may pose some problems at first. However, he happens to be a very dedicated individual, and I'm sure that he will catch on quickly. Perhaps at least one or two more people will step forward and offer to contribute. If that happens then I would finally be able to focus my time on working on a script I had in mind which would display the most recent posts for each particular category. I have always had a number of ideas which would make the site better, yet have always lacked the available time to implement them. Perhaps one day...

In the meantime, I hope my news will brighten your day just a bit. Thank you once again and take care.
