Lena - That's just awful, the crap that comes your way through your music
page! (Other than Mike, of course.
I don't know if MySpace has done much for dreamSTATE CD sales - mp3.com used to be better
but it's another decent (or so I thought before hearing from the female side) interface point
with other people and musicians. I mainly get friend requests from other artists and I used to
try to visit everybody's page and if I liked their music, to make a little comment, but after a
while, so many requests began to come through that I didn't have spare listening time to address
them. After a month, they just get cut off your request list and I don't want to offend all the
nice people out there by having them think I'm shunning their requests, so I just go in every
few weeks and approve everybody who doesn't have too twisted a handle or photo. The
rest, I visit quickly to determine if they're nazis or whatever and approve/disapprove.
As most of the requests are from other artists, it's always great to get the requests
from real people
who actually list ambient artists in their music likes and best of all
when they have a dreamSTATE track playing on their page when I visit.
When I have time to listen, there's lots of good music out there. I remember (for example) being
really impressed with Boris Lelong the first time I heard his work. Plus, it's just kinda fun to
put longtime and new internet music pals in your friends list.
