The idea of this venue growing into something has been on my mind.
I wonder, do you gals and guys not understand that community is all that we
have to loose?
No one here, or anywhere, is going to break out online. Big Music is never going to let that happen, ever! Billi E, her of the ragging anti-style, the supposed Indie break out girlie, is an industry plant folks, a fraud. She is an insider.
Money invested in any posting service is not going to earn a profit for you, unless your Todd, Todd’s mom will buy many of his down loads so his feelings will not be hurt… gotta love Todd’s mom. If you play out folks will not support downloads, it is not happening, artist sell CDs at the venue, like David Crosby does.
The self professed greatest asshole of his generation, Croz is on twitter everyday complaining he makes nothing on his online music. He’s made 5 records in four years or something like that, and lost money. How is your business going to thrive where The Croz fails? I am here to tell you, your not.
So, you might as well share some of that music yer making. So, may as well make some music for your life and share it. You may as well comment on other peeps music and join the community as a responsible adult, and grow together.
I want to assure everyone, community is truly all we have…
How do I know these things and you folks don’t? I have been online since it started and played in bar bands and on the buffet circuit for 30 years, I worked in the analoug studio making boutique records and commercials as well.
I have played music all my life in front of people for money. The Dim Witness, Grand Father, Fatty, Slo Parts and Phil, the people that made the online community part of their life, showed the way, we don’t have to reinvent the wheel here. Start sharing. Build the community of equals now, The Admin can not sustain this venue by himself. Do your part, or, loose the place, your choice.

I fully agree, Daug
Community is what it’s all about
That what made sites like Icompositions and macjams great places
If we want this site to be more than a site like soundcloud where people upload stuff but hardly comment on other people’s music there has to be more involvement by the folks here.
I’m glad that Rich put so much effort in this sites.
We have to do it together.

I agree but it’s difficult these days to get the same level of involvement as there was at MJ. Then again, MJ was also struggling towards “the end”.
When I joined in 2006 (I think) it wasn’t unusual to get upwards of 30 or more comments on a song. Before it died you were lucky to get into double figures!
I guess when MJ started it was a brave new world of home recording and maybe people eventually got bored. I know a few who posted regularly but gradually dropped out for one reason or another.

Hear hear! This place wasn’t opening for me for a couple of days and I didn’t like the idea that IMS too had failed. I’ll do what I can to help.

I’m glad we haven’t failed, yet. 🙂
We’ve been through some bumps and hurdles though.
Hopefully, we’ll be around for a while.
