  1. Hey guys. I think there's some confusion here and I just want to speak on that and maybe help make sense of what's going on in this thread as far as the last few pages go regarding BDB and wattm. First of all hi, hello, wassup, miss lots of you, don't recognize most of you, and in turn most of you don't know who I am, and that's how it should be and this will help illustrate my point in a bit. Secondly, I can understand why Joyrex would be defensive with Keltoi's question about the donation meter. You are the head and face and muscle of watmm and at baseline you are going to be defensive if you perceive hostility or potential undermining of how you run the site. You are providing a by and large thankless service for lots of people and when those people aren't consistently appreciative it starts eating away at an agreement. There's a phenomenon where forum users who have spent loads of time and effort into helping build a community feel like they have some sort of stake into how things are done, or at least feel like they have the right to be critical at times. Thus there is the actual watmm, the money, the adminstration, the moderation, the time, the sweat, the bullshit you have to deal with, and there is the ideal watmm, the intangible community that many people consider a part of their life. The working stiff who suits up, drives to his office, feels like an alien among the other suits, but alas can turn to likeminded individuals on his break to get through the day while he tries to figure his shit out. Because this ideal community is part of his life, he feels entitled to have a voice in how it is governed. The sad truth, probably to no one's fault, is this entitlement eats away at the agreement. I don't know what the agreement is exactly, but it has to be something like "I made this place, so ultimately you gotta do things that I'm okay with or you're gonna have to fuck off." In my clearly insignificant opinion, it is fair of Keltoi to bring up his question regarding the donation meter. Perfectly fair. Joyrex you are probably so used to people trying to get an angle on you that you automatically deflect and try to find an angle on them. That's the only reason I can come up with you making this to have anything to do with BDB. That's understandable. You've had enough people talk shit about you and badmouth you over the years so I can follow your train of thought there. But I think you have it wrong as far as the BDB MO goes. The point is not to have a place to post tits finally. That's what the entire internet is for. The point is, some of us became a part of each other's lives for better or for worse, and we came up in a golden age of IDM together and shared all these amazing experiences and developments, and there was an actual community happening. Now in my case, over many years, my actions ate away at the agreement. To be fair, the details of the agreement changed -- the whole premise of posting here for some us was to be able to share unfiltered thoughts and try to sort our lives out with a soundtrack of amazing electronic music in the background. I do believe that premise was always lost on you, because one day you brushed that premise aside, and that's perfectly fine, but you have to understand, this is essentially why BDB exists. We just want to dump out our minds together and abstractly figure out the meaning of life. We are continuing a beloved dialogue that was one day deemed too uncouth for watmm. That's it. It should be symbiotic. We shouldn't be faulted for talking about things that aren't allowed to be talked about here, as peers, without moderation or judgment. There's really no need to be defensive or try to paint BDB in such a negative light because of that. The fact that Keltoi is part of that conversation on BDB is completely irrelevant to watmm's Donation Gate or Donagate or whatever you guys are calling it in all the chatrooms, so I'm kindly asking that we be left alone going forward regarding this issue. Anyway, I've shot my wad. Really wish everyone the best here. Hope you are well Joyrex. Happy Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year to all.
  2. arggh I need these tracks ludd why u take them down
  3. Yes. Colombia will win quietly. In fact they've already won it in the future without us noticing.
  4. Hey man! I quite like that Millie and Andrea record a lot. There are 2 or three really amazing tracks on there for sure. I didn't really notice on first couple of listens but I was rocking out to it one day and I realized, shit, this album is dope. "Corrosive" in particular is quite good. Here is the entire Millie and Andrea album on soundcloud if anyone is curious about it: Also I will get you a download link for the mix, it makes me endlessly happy to picture you listening to it on a train.
  5. this warms my heart. thanks ludd. hi godel :D homestar, you still have my av??! that's got to be a decade old... hi grag lol you have my av too
  6. wow, cheers and hello yall. thanks for checking it out. yeah sheatheman that scurvy track is criminally underrated, one of my favorite tracks from last year. fishermen wail.
  7. lol I vaguely recall that, I think I had some pissy kneejerk reaction to you saying i wasn't funny anymore. *shudders at mid/late-20s me*
  8. Greetings watmm. I wanted to make sure I posted this mix because there is a watmm fellow who goes or went by the Moniker "Lights Set North" and I just want them to know that their song Strangelet is one of my favorite songs ever and I play it a lot for people and they get excited about it too. I included it on this mix. Dude if you are here please post up links to more of your music. Anyway this is a mix around 120-130 bpm that I broadcast last week over on my island (please don't take this as spam I just want to be friends and enjoy the music) and thought some of you might enjoy the flow here. I used Virtual DJ, Goldwave, and my reverb pedal to blend everything together. Cheers. Tracklist: 2.Wash Over Me by Shifted 3.Spectral Source by Millie & Andrea 4.Heliosphan by Aphex Twin 5.Strangelet by Lights Set North 6.Ember by Function 7.Arpeggiated Love by The Field 8.Scurvy by Fishermen 9.Continuum by Akkord 10.The Way You - The Cyclist Remix by Soosh 11.Natalia's Song by Zomby 12.Burning Tyres by Shifted 13.Black and White Stripes by Aphex Twin Also please ignore my stupid voice at the beginning you can just skip ahead to about a minute thirty in where the actual mix starts with Shifted (such an incredible song btw, wow)
  9. uhhhhhhhh ... hi? here's the bandcamp link zephyr nova. have a nice day. http://futonic.bandcamp.com/album/deep-sea-creatures
  10. You're telling me! I finally get to know what I look like. The drawing I spent all day drawing of you shows flesh. Therefore I cannot post it because flesh leads to sex which is NSFW.
