Check this out for a prime example of the kind of shit you have to put up with when you try to do the right thing:

"hey man please both you and static fanatic change filehoster because this new modality in free mode, two download every two hours, is really unberable. anyway go on, those blogs are great"

This kind of crap is always from "anonymous".

What world do people live in?

...Excuse me but I'm not happy. I am slightly inconvenienced by your method of introducing me to music I would never have heard before and actually can't access anywhere else...

I know I shouldn't bite, but...for fucks sake...I'm on the 4th filehost...Static has just re-uploaded about four years of work...the political climate suggests that our easiest way of spreading the sub-underground is going to disappear in a blaze of lawsuits...

...and what do you get...whinging bastard wankers!!!

I haven't posted for a while because I've been breaking in the new tape ripper and have started to wade through about 500 tapes that I haven't been able to pay due attention to (never mind the time I've lost with my partner and my cats) because I've been doing this blog...

...and these freeloading entitled fuckwits think they can influence me (or godheads like Static) because it is not convenient for them...

How degenerate. Are we not better than this? Is this the best that we can do?

Yeah, saw that. What a fuckin' ass.
Filecloud is decent. No idea what he/she/it is bitching about.

Sometimes these inept people manage to slip under the radar & over the wall, it must be annoying hard to ignore sometimes.. They have no concept of the thrill of chasing down records that you have your eye on, especially with the extra interference that file hosters now actively engage in. Imagine if they brought the records, the shear depravity they would have to sink to if they had to wait for postal service to deliver em?
Thanks for the time you sink into this, ripping can be a long & heartless activity, when it goes wrong, esp if you want to do the best job possible.
Look forward to new stuff.

I rarely comment b/c I have an ancient browser & usually get blown out when I try (using a friends pc right now!); anyway the occasional asshole get to you, altho there seems to be more and more of them every day. Love the blog; can't believe the shit you've turned us on to. Infuckingcredible. Thanks. Anonymous b/c I have no idea what the fuck I'm doing.

A while back, someone wrote me about how lazy I was for not placing files into folders before compressing them into a zip file. Before I had a chance to reply and explain how it was a conscientious choice, they had posted several little jabs in my Shoutbox about me being a loser and how I should get a girlfriend and move out of my parents basement
(I live with my wife in our house with our four cats, the "being a loser" is too subjective to address). This person ended their insults with "Your blog sucks, anyways", which was when I knew they were probably 14 years old, tops - no offense to my younger visitors out there.

So many interesting people with fascinating ideas pass through the web and enrich our lives everyday, so yeah, the law of averages tells us the occasional ingrate is to be expected, too. I think it is important for people to remember that both Bleak Bliss and The Static Fanatic are each both run by one person. I am sure many other equally busy blogs are run by one dude and his enthusiasm. We don't run ads, or take under the table Paypal deposits to post stuff, either. It's all very direct and personal, as the New Media was supposed to be.

...as that 14 year old's dad may have once said...

Just ignore these knobs - they should be grateful for all this good stuff they're getting for nothing.

In my blogging experience, anybody who starts a post 'hey man' should expect to have it deleted unread in any case as it proves they're an idiot...

Just ignore it. Easier said than done, I know. That poster didn't really mean any disrespect it seems -- looks like ignorance at worst.

The "14 yr old" one though... what a douche.

I appreciate you, Blissman!!

I don't know why people get so demanding of people like you who are taking their time to share their music with us.

You've shared lots of music I was unable to find anywhere and you've opened my ears to tunes I otherwise would have never heard.

What more can anyone ask for? I hope you'll keep sharing in whatever format suits your fancy.

i've been a supporter from the start and completely agree with what you wrote. people likely have no idea the hurt (some more than others) put on by these ridiculous lawsuits and account closures. keep on keepin on.
all the best-

This blog rocks. I'm not a fan of the new host, but it's your choice to use - beggars can't be choosers. I'm always excited to see an update regardless and I appreciate all of this. Keep it up, man!!

Fuck the snooty 14 year olds, on the real

Good rant! Anyway I think filecloud is a really good option. Thanks for the music.
