  • Anyone know a good blog backup?

    I’ve been trying to use Backup Jammy on every platform I have, but it doesn’t seem to work, and I’d love to have my blog backed up in case it gets unceremoniously deleted like many peoples’ have.

    Don’t wait for God or Zeus to move you around the chessboard. God is busy and Zeus is doing movies now, so take control of the game yourself. Expect moments of discouragement; just don’t wallow in them; the only guy I ever heard of who got an amazing life literally handed to him was Hal Jordan. Don’t wait for a dying alien to give you a magic ring; just do it yourself, Slappy.

    We can’t all be Superman, but we sure as shit can train hard, and with loads of practice, we can be Batman.

    Instead of following this Photoshop tutorial to create a vintage musical event poster as an homage to Swiss design, I instead focused my efforts in a much better way. 

    I just had to use this photo rather than a solemn one because of everyone’s faces…priceless. 

    While I’m in the midst of deleting all the music off my blog, I get to stumble across design gems I’ve made like this one. 

    Love it, live it, learn it.

  • It’s pretty sad to see these music posts leave my blog. It’s a documentation of my life from day to day, and music is a huge part of that. So far, I’m back as far as 2011…still got a few years of music to take off my blog.

  • Crazy to think that some of the music posts I’m deleting have 10,000+ likes or reblogs…sorry for affecting your blogs, 10,000+ wonderful Tumblr peeps.

  • Welp, conclusion for my blog? No more music.

    Here’s to a Friday afternoon that will be spent deleting every song every posted on my five years of bloggage. Much rather have my blog still exist without some tunes than not exist at all, but oy freakin’ vey.

  • So, I get a copyright infringement notice on my blog (I’ve gotten one before), and just as with the first email, they link to the supposed post, but since they’ve deleted it, I have no way of knowing what song it was so that I can avoid ever reblogging/posting anything by that artist or label ever again. What I don’t get is…I’m literally not making any money, I’m not file sharing, I’m just posting a song to describe how I felt that day, and most of the time, no one sees it. Can we get a what the fudge?
